Toy Trends During Coronavirus Quarantine: The Hot Toys, Games & Puzzles Parents Are Turning to During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Thank you Channel 7 News for interviewing me about the increase in sales of toys, including board games and puzzles, during coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown. According to a new report, there's been a shift when it comes to playtime because of the pandemic to toys like Hotwheels, LEGOs, puzzles and '80s classics like Cabbage Patch dolls, Care Bears and the Rubik's Cube. 

Many families went back to board games and puzzles to life spirits, have fun together and keep kids busy so working parents could get some work done. We played  Pay Day and I went bankrupt, but my son, Cameron, bailed me out! Yay!

Here are some of the trending toys right now, and some classic board games that your family might enjoy playing together. What games or toys have your kids been engaging with since coronavirus quarantine?
