Novelty items are defined as things that don’t have a practical function. However, novelty toys for children offer hours of playtime even though they may not be as practical as clothing or school supplies. Of course, children prefer novelty toys, because they promise lots of fun and excitement. At License 2 Play, we love our collection of novelty toys, and we know your customers will love them, too.
Which Toys Are Great Novelty Toys?
Novelty toys are toys that are unique in some way. They could be exceptionally cute little keychains, fancy toy animals, or battery-operated playthings. They don’t have to be the opposite of classic toys, such as wooden blocks, but they have to offer something unique to the child that plays with them.
At License 2 Play, we love carrying the hottest toys of the year, including Shopkins, but we also pride ourselves in making cool wholesale novelty toys available to you. We’ll discuss some of these toys here, but feel free to browse our extensive selection for additional suggestions.
