15 Best Unicorn Toys For Sparkle-Loving Kids Of All Ages – Scary Mommy

unicorn toys

Unicorn toys will never go out of style. In fact, unicorn anything will never go out of style. Baby shark toys come and go, but unicorns are here to stay. You’ve noticed it, we’ve noticed it — unicorns are everywhere. It doesn’t matter how old your kids are — preteen or pull-ups, there’s a unicorn stamped on it. We’re not exactly mad about the trend either. It’s not often, after all, that you can combine a positive statement about being unique with sparkles — or find common ground between your six and sixteen-year-old. Whether you’re shopping for a baby shower, birthday party, or preparing your kid to be a fairytale dressage champion, here’s our picks for the best unicorn toys for kids of all ages.

Best Unicorn Toys for Kids

Up to three kids can play in this colorful unicorn pop-up tent. It’s lightweight, breathable, and mesh windows allow you to keep an eye on the kiddos while they play. While the reviews say that this tent likely won’t withstand any sieges, it gets bonus points for being fairly easy-to-assemble and for the included storage bag.

If your unicorn aficionado needs to have a little bit of magic everywhere they go, give them a water-friendly, cute-as-a-button, baby unicorn. This one has water-activated, color-changing lights (which are sure to be a hit with your kids) and is designed to make parents happy with a closed, mold-resistant design. Pro tip: grab one for each kid — reviewers say the adorably soft toy doesn’t inspire sharing.


This awesome nighttime lamp projects unicorns, so you can turn your kid’s room into unicorn land. It also has a starry sky option, if you want to switch up the magic. This lamp is able to project up 15 feet, and 250 square feet. Sleepover, anyone?

It’s been a stressful year for kids, too. This squishy unicorn is filled with gel-infused (non-toxic!) beads that are super durable and feel extremely satisfying to squish, squeeze, and stretch. Honestly, you might want one yourself.

Best Toddler and Baby Unicorn Toys

If you’re looking for a unicorn toy that baby will love, snag this magical, moveable Bright Starts toy. You can set it to “chase” mode and let your crawler (or toddler) run after this unicorn, which changes directions when you touch it. If you need to keep them in one spot, set the Rock & Glow to “discovery” mode, which teaches colors, numbers, and shapes with lights and sound. This pick has “baby shower win” all over it.

Handmade by moms and woven with certified organic cotton yarn, you’d be supporting two New York-based friends who created Cuddoll *and* your kiddo’s growing imagination.


Got a little one who’s on-the-move? Get them some wheels with this ride-on wagon. The clever design grows with your tot’s abilities. Early walkers can use it as a push-wagon for stability, while older kids can ride and push with their feet. Once they’ve got the hang of walking, they can use it scooter-style with an extended handlebar.


If your budding Doc McStuffins is ready to scrub up, get her the tools she’ll need with this Unicorn Pet Doctor kit. This playset comes with a stethoscope, syringe, bottle, a cast for setting broken horns, and of course, the cuddly hypochondriac themselves. Plus, there’s a rainbow backpack — so she can make house calls, of course.
