For the past few years, mini brands have been one of the biggest trends with kids. For those that are unfamiliar, mystery minis have been a social media sensation, appealing to the toy trends of unboxing and anything tiny and pocket-sized.

Chris Byrne (aka The Toy Guy) says that one of the reasons why these toys are so popular is the social aspect; they’re great for schoolyard trading.

“Kids have been inside and away from their peers for a long time,” says Byrne. “These are tradable gifts that allow kids to relate to each other…. They’re great conversation-starters.”

Cute, collectible and—quite possibly—the perfect stocking stuffer. Here are some of our favorite toys that jump on the mini trend.

1. Zuru 5-Surprise Minis

17 mini brands your kids will go crazy for

From the brand that started it all, Zuru 5-Surprise Minis came on the scene to dominate TikTok in 2019, and have been a sensation ever since.The fun of these little spheres comes in their unboxing. Each of the five chambers is sealed and, once opened, reveals a miniaturized version of top brands of household items and food. Byrne says part of their appeal is that kids love miniatures and the display aspect of this toy makes it fun for kids.

Once they’ve got a collection going, get the 5-Surprise Mini Mart to display their collection.

From villains to princesses to Disney icons, these 1.5-inch, wide-eyed figurines are a play on words: They’re completely a-doorable. (See what they did there?)

Yes, they are adorable and their mystery aspect has them cleverly hidden behind a row of doors. What’s more, they are perfect for play. Keeping with the door concept, all of the play packs that accompany these cuties include little doors themed to match movie motifs.

Peek packs include five, six or seven collectible figurines. You can shop by theme, or purchase random sets for a truly surprising experience.

The fun of Funko Snapsies goes far beyond their collectibility. These adorable, snap-together creatures are cute to collect, but what’s even more fun is their snap-together interchangeability. You may find a uni-kitty or mer-pup or zen llama in your reveal, but once you get to collecting their interchangeability is revealed, and that’s where the real fun starts. You can pull them apart to create new and exciting mythical creatures that are all your own, which is why we are excited for the forthcoming Snapsies Gems 5-packs. They’re available for pre-order and each comes with five jewel-toned Snapsies to assemble, collect and customize.
