Unicorns have been talked about and dreamed about dating all the way back to biblical times. If you have ever wondered if unicorns are real or not we suggest checking out our article “ARE UNICORNS REAL“. However, it wasn’t until recently the unicorn’s popularity exploded and caused the unicorn trend we find ourselves in today. Starbucks sent the unicorn trend to all new heights when it released its unicorn Frappuccino, and since then the popularity of unicorn’s has continually gone up.
The unicorn trend has laid down roots in just about anything and everything. You can find unicorns makeup, body glitter, nails, clothes, home decor, socks, and what we are focused on in this article, toys. The amount of unicorn toys available is staggering. If you have a little unicorn lover at home it can be tough to decide which toys to go with as there are so many to chose from.

We have a list of the 10 best toys, so take this list with you when you head out to the store or just click on any of the link or images here to find the perfect gift for your unicorn lover.
At first glance you see a cute and fuzzy little unicorn that you just want to pick up and squeeze and cuddle with. Glenda is white with purple hooves, ears and mane and tops it all of with a golden horn. However, do not be fooled by her cuteness and squeeze her too hard, if you do that cute little unicorn’s face will turn into a mean and terrifying creature with sharp teeth and all. By squeezing both sides of its head near the ears the cute face pulls back and the eyes and teeth all turn evil.
These toys will be the talk of the family and will provide endless laughter. One thing to be aware of is kids and pets such as dogs can be scared of the toy when you squeeze the head and make it look mean. So just be aware not to give your kid nightmares, or get attacked by your own dog.
The Glenda Glitterpoop toy is recommend for children ages 3 and up, but like we said be a little careful as to not scare your child too much. If your little unicorn toy gets a little too dirty, you can spot wash the toy only, it is not machine washable.

We did a full on article just on the giant versions of this toy so feel try check that article out, you can read it HERE. We will still give you a breakdown and basic summary of these toys here though as well. This toy ended up being the “IT” toy of this Holiday Season and many stores had trouble keeping it in stock.
The basic idea behind these toys is you feed them a concoction of glitter, shimmer, water, unicorn food, etc, shake the toy up a let it sit for a second. Then by pressing on the unicorn’s stomach you force it to poop out slime that was created from the ingredients you fed it.
These toys are an absolute blast for the whole family, trust me I know it sounds weird, but I promise you there will be nothing but smiles for all involved.
The VTech Go Go Unicorn is an interactive unicorn toy that any child is sure to love. The two magic point locations on the unicorn’s back is what brings the whole toy to life. This unicorn will entertain your children with light, fun phrases and more. However, the thing your child is sure to be most amazed by is the unicorns horn which lights up and magically changes colors.
Phrases and lights are not the only thing this unicorn can do, it will walk forward, backwards and can even flap its wings. To make all of this magic happen 2 AAA and 4 AA batteries are necessary and are provided, however we recommend using new ones since kids will have been playing with them at the store killing the batteries that are provided.
Included with this unicorn is a fairy Prisma Magic Point character and a golden carrot accessorie to feed your new unicorn. If you already have other Go Go Smart toys and characters you can make a whole magical kingdom with all of them. If not you can always add to your collection by acquiring other Go Go Smart toys and accessories sold separately.
These little critters exploded onto the season during the 2017 Holiday Season, thrived through 2018 and appear to not be going away in 2019 either. This toy comes in a few different colors and names, but when it comes to unicorns GiGi is far and away the most popular.
The best way to describe this toy is that it is a little unicorn (monkeys and sloths also available) that clings to your finger. The toy reacts to sound, music and touch and even makes cute little noises itself. What makes these toys such a unique and hot item is that you are getting something quite advanced technologically yet still affordable and reasonably priced.
During the 2017 Holiday season when these toys were introduced they disappeared off the shelves almost instantly, and could even have been found being resold on EBay for twice much as retail price or even in some cases triple figures. While demand has calmed down a little bit they are still a super popular and an asked for toy, and now can be easily found in most stores.
This game is just so much fun and is a spin off of the original “Do not Step In It” game. The way the game works is you spin the spinner to see how many steps you are going to have to take. Once you know you put the blind fold on and someone else places the fake poop piles on the mat that you are about to walk on blindfolded. You then take however many steps you got on the spinner hopefully without stepping in any of the poop piles.
What make this game even better is it is the unicorn edition of the game so do you know what that means??? RAINBOW POOP PILES!!! I also forgot to add that you have to mold and make the poop piles yourselves, you have to place the putty into a mold that shapes it into a pile of poop. This is even better when you do step in it because it is actually soft and squishy just like…well you know.
This unicorn is an interactive and educational toy, and even better is bilingual…yes she can say phrases in English and Spanish. Just upon first impression of this toy, what is not to love, she is colorful, has tons of accessories, and best of all is a unicorn.
Starshine comes with seven different charms that can be placed on any of the three magic hearts on her body, and she will talk about colors, objects and phrases in both English and Spanish. If that is enough for you or your child, no biggie, she will dazzle you with her horn that lights up in a rainbow assortment of colors. If you press the blue heart button, she will quiz you and you will use the charms to answer the questions.
Even if it stopped here it would be a great toy, but this little unicorn goes even further. Starshine has a “music mode”. Once in music mode press the blue heart button until you find a melody that you like, then you can interact with the melody using the charms causing her to make musical sounds and creating your very own song.
Now do this next thing nicely because you do not want to hurt her, but you can even pull her tail and make her wings flap, and she will speak even more phrases to get your childs imagination going and encouraging them to play.
Who doesn’t want their very own magical unicorn pillow??? That’s what I thought. This is such a creative and neat toy/pillow combo that your kid will surely love.

Using this as a toy this stuffed animal is somewhat compact being held together by its own little strap. Release the strap and your unicorn transforms into a pillow making it the ideal travel companion either on an airplane, car ride, etc.
The pillow pets unicorn comes in two sizes an 18″ pillow and a 30″ pillow. These pillows also come in multiple colors and even feature one that glows…how cool is that?

Your pillow pet unicorn is machine washable as long as you tie her up in a white pillow case and wash in cold water.
