Review & Buyer’s Guide: Unicorn Toys For Kids
You shouldn’t feel bad if you need a little help deciding which of these magical unicorn toys you should get for your kid. After all, there are not a whole lot of buying resources when it comes to creatures that live in faraway realms.
We’ve assembled everything that we learned in the process of making our list and we are now ready to share our secrets. What follows is a brief guide to what you need to know when shopping for unicorn toys.
After that, we’ll make a few recommendations of our own for the Top Pick Unicorn Toys of 2021.
The Different Kinds Of Unicorn Toys
Because unicorns are so diverse and magical, they can work great as just about any kind of toy, from pretend princess costumes to remote controlled flying horses. Choosing what kind of toy to get for your kid is a question that goes somewhat beyond the scope of this article, but we can safely say that if you have a kid that loves unicorns, the chances are good that you will be able to find plenty of unicorn-related toys and gifts.
Your kid’s age will play an important role in what kind of toy is best. For example, simple plush unicorn toys that have no electronics or moving parts tend to be a great option for babies and young children who are still too young to play with most toys without supervision.
The older your child gets, however, the more awesome unicorn stuff will be available to them. More advanced toys in this category include RC toys and electronics.
Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Q: Do all unicorns have wings?
A: While about half of the unicorn toys featured on our list do indeed have wings, it cannot be said that wings are an entirely common thing with unicorns. Just because the unicorn toy that you picked out doesn’t have wings does not mean that your kid isn’t going to absolutely love it.
Q: Are any of these unicorn toys dangerous for kids?
A: Because the long horn of plastic unicorn toys can pose a small threat to younger kids, we recommend going for plush versions that are incapable of causing any painful poking. Also you should keep in mind that the potential danger of RC toys like the Flying Helicopter Unicorn is significantly higher than it is with the other toys, but it is still quite safe overall.
