Shop Toys by Age
Kids can enjoy hours of imaginative play with exciting toys
From art supplies to swing sets and electronics, Walmart's toy department is a wonderland of fun for children of all ages. Whether you're trying to encourage active play, imagination, education or just plain fun, you'll find the equipment and essentials you need to make it happen in this section. Classic favorites like LEGO, NERF, Crayola, Barbie and Fisher-Price are available alongside newer brands and trendy toys, giving parents, grandparents and other grown-up friends the ability to pick out any kind of toy a kid could want. Our vast selection includes a lot of great values thanks to our Every Day Low Prices, too, so you can stock up on toys for any occasion. Whether you're trying to load goodies under the Christmas tree or you're looking for something small as a reward for a major academic accomplishment, you'll have plenty of options to choose from as you shop. If you need help narrowing down your options, you can use the various categories within the toy department to make your browsing process more efficient.
Shop by age
While there are some simple toy items, like crayons and sports balls, that are entertaining and safe for kids in both kindergarten and 7th grade, most toys are best for specific age ranges. Whether due to safety concerns because of small, hazardous parts or the complexity of the toy or game itself, it's often a good idea to shop by age so you can get something that the children on your list will actually enjoy and be able to use. Our toys department is divided into several different age range categories that start with infants ages 0 12 months and go all the way past ages 12 and up. Shopping by age allows you to find toys in an appropriate size for kids at different developmental stages to grip onto and manipulate the toy's parts. Once you zero in on the appropriate age range, you'll have further options to narrow down your choices and determine what kind of toy you want to buy.
There are so many different kinds of toys for kids that it can be easiest to focus on a specific category for the kind of activity you want to encourage. You can also follow cues from your kids to see what kind of category they might be most interested in. A child who's interested in building may be most enthusiastic about a toy in the Building Sets category, while a child who likes fashion and acting may naturally prefer something from our pretend play & Dress Up section. If you're looking to get your child something to help with academic performance in school, you can start by looking in the Learning Toys category. When your kids need some encouragement to get outside and play, or if you want to get something to keep your children focused on the areas where they're allowed to play on your property, our Swing Sets section may have just what you're looking for. You can then further refine your options in these categories by using the filters on the left side of the page; choose your target age range, price or materials options to stay focused on the specific items within the category that are most suitable for your needs.
Walmart offers a variety of remote control and ride-on vehicle toys for kids across the age spectrum. From advanced drones to simple automated toy cars and even large ride-on vehicles with little motors, you can find different types of mechanized, motorized toys for kids to play with. Some of these toys are best used with adult supervision, so the grown-ups in the family who'll be responsible for overseeing play may want to give the final OK on your gift choice if you're not shopping for your own child. Some of the vehicular or ride-on toys we offer, such as scooters and bicycles, are best to use in conjunction with safety equipment such as pads and helmets. Read the recommended safety precautions listed with the item to see whether additional safety equipment purchases are a good idea.
Some of the toys in our various sections are valuable collector's items in addition to being fun playthings for kids. Some adults like to purchase action figures and other character toys, and we offer a range of official branded merchandise from a variety of movie and TV franchises that collectors love. Collectors can find items to satisfy their pop culture interests in the Toys section as well. We also have advanced building sets and other toys that adults may want to collect or even build themselves. The fun available in our toy department is for kids of all ages.
