There are only 82 days until Christmas. That's crazy! It'll be here before we know it so I would say it's definitely not too early to start shopping for gifts. Thankfully, Minnesota-based Target has released their list of the top toys of 2023 so you can get the perfect gift for the kids in your life.

I just got my Halloween decorations out yesterday so it's nuts to imagine Christmas being only about 2 months away.

I'm not sure what your strategy is for holiday shopping but I like to try and start early so I can slowly buy things instead of rushing at the last minute. No matter how you do your shopping, it'll still cost you money, sometimes lots of it depending on how many people you're buying for.

So before we get to the top toys of 2023, I want to remind you that you can win $30,000 to pay for the holiday gifts this year!

With the holiday spirit in the air, it’s the perfect time to dive into the history of iconic holiday gifts. Using national toy archives and data curated by The Strong from 1920 to today, Stacker searched for products that caught hold of the public zeitgeist through novelty, innovation, kitsch, quirk, or simply great timing, and then rocketed to success.
