Timeless Toys, an independent toy store in the Lincoln Square neighborhood in Chicago, has released their list of the top toys for the 2020 holiday season, which includes both new products as well as twists on classic favorites. This year’s top toys feature games and interactive toys that encourage education as well as movement that families want for the holidays this year that are likely to see continued limitations on outside activities.
“We see generations of families who come to find the toy or gift that will become a personal favorite for the kids in their lives,” says Scott Friedland, Timeless Toys Head Shopkeeper. “This year we have families dealing with the pandemic who are looking for toys that not only spark interest, but also are just plain fun. They want to motivate and energize their kids as well as themselves.”
The Timeless Toys team specialize in early childhood education, music and psychology and are known for having a deep knowledge of the products. Shoppers can find that thoughtfulness reflected in the store, online or in the catalog.
