Disney Lands on Toy Insider’s Hot 20 Toys of 2016

The Toy Insider, one of the leading toy review companies here in the US, releases each fall season their HOT 20, a list of their predictions of the hottest toys for the holiday season. For the past few years, some of their predictions have been spot on (Hasbro’s Pie Face from last year is just one example). Yesterday, they released their newest HOT 20, and Disney (like almost every year) ended up on the list a few times. Here are the Disney highlights from the full list, which can be found here.

First up is the Preschool (3-5 years) category, where a whopping three entries are from Disney properties.
