Cute pink piggy bankWhen browsing for gifts in toy or department stores these days – perhaps especially at Christmas time – it might be easy to get the impression that “prices for toys are outrageous!” However, that is not necessarily the case. In fact, some absolutely wonderful toys that kids are raving about this year are at or less than the cost of $20!

What’s here: On this page is a “top 10” list – the best toys under $20 for the Christmas holiday months of 2017 and into 2017. Ranking for the list is based on those picks with a high level of popularity that also have overall great customer ratings. Toys for a variety of age ranges are included.

For shoppers: For each of the toys on this list, one or more online merchants have been chosen for product availability, low pricing and trusted reputation for safe and convenient shopping. Product review links have also been provided, where possible.

Additional note: At the time this page was published, we were able to locate each of the toys here for less than $20, but keep in mind that prices may vary – they may increase or decrease over time, and often will vary from merchant to merchant.
