At last, summer 2020 is here and we’re here with our USA Toyz Summer Buyer’s Guide with all kinds of great ideas! While this might be a different summer than we’re used to, we’re still expecting a great summer experience filled with fun staycation memories and lots of indoor excitement.
In case you’re wondering if it’s possible to make this season extra special for the family, the answer is YES! As we’re trading tropical trips for the backyard pool and indoor parties, it’s only right to stock up on fun summer essentials.
On that note, we’d like to share this summer’s buying guide to which cool toys and gizmos to buy for family, friends, or yourself this beach (less) season:
- Safe Games for Toddlers
- Educational Toys for Grade Schoolers (ages 5 to 8)
- Fun Gizmos for Older Kids and Tweens (ages 9 to 12)
- Cool Gadgets Teens and Adults will Love
- Bonus: Summer Party Packs
Safe Games for Toddlers
Warm, sunny days are ahead and they pair perfectly with these toddler and baby-safe products from our magical toy factory. Whether your little ones like to splash around like a little fishy in a pool or to hang out with friends in the neighborhood sandbox, these toys have got you covered. Keeping them safe and happily entertained is always top of mind for us at USA Toyz.
Pool Floats and Swim Rings
Keep your water-loving little ones safe with bright pool floats and swim rings. Get your kids either a 3-pack inflatable swim rings for sharing (check out these fun and silly themes: pet theme swim rings or mythical animal pool floats) or a fun llama-designed float with leg openings for an added layer of safety. These are fun to bring to the beach or lake in the summer - but backyard pools work too!
Toddlers love to play with their hands and explore what they can do with them, and we know how important that sensory experience is for their development. For little children who love playing with clay and hanging out in the sandbox, why not get them some smushy, moldable, and non-sticky play sand?
Or, you can get them this fun beach molds set (recently voted #1 in She Knows as “The Best Kinetic Sand Tools for Taking Sensory Play to the Next Level”) that they bring to the playground, beach, or use at home. Just make sure to get the kids only sensory toys with safe, non-toxic ingredients for your peace of mind.
Got a little adventurer in the making? Why not give your little explorer her/his own kiddie tent? Get your ocean explorer, unicorn party princess, or future astronaut a tent to her own, plus the matching accessories. Your kids will love hanging out in these cool tents whether indoors or outdoors — trust us! We also know that children appreciate having their own special safe space for finding their little paths to emotional calm.
Educational Toys for Grade Schoolers (ages 5 to 8)
School-age children enjoy toys with a bit of challenge and fun. Keep them occupied with exciting summer toys geared towards learning, just like these cool suggestions in this Summer Buyer’s Guide.
A talking robot is sure to make kids swoon — ‘cause who doesn’t love robots, right? Get your grade-schooler a talking robot (that tirelessly records and repeats what they say) to keep them company. Worried it might cost too much? You’ll be surprised how inexpensive this awesome toy is!
For children who are fascinated with continents and stars, give them a globe that doubles as a constellation map and functions as a night light too. Unlike common globes, this 3-in-1 LED World Globe is outfitted with a robust chrome base, making it a sturdy piece of furniture that will last for a long time. This toy-slash-learning-tool surprisingly doubles as a night light too. Check Out the 3-in-1 LED World Globe Here
Beginner RC Toys and Cars
Kids who love speed will be ecstatic playing with super-fast RC cars all summer, like this extra tiny LED mini cars with their own stunt globe or this rugged, off-road car that does high-speed 360-degree flips. These toys are fun to play on their own, but way cooler to race with friends and family.
Want hours of ‘learn and play’ time? Get kids this kid-friendly, build-your-own race track with 2 RC cars. Kids will have hours of exciting RC time building their own curvy, bendy race tracks and racing after. And oh, did we mention these tracks are glow-in-the-dark too?
Fun Target Practice
Who doesn’t love target practice? You may have your classic foam dart guns at home, but did you know that there are *cooler* ways to do target practice? AstroShot blaster gun toy sets take your regular foam dart gun shooting to an otherworldly summer experience.
Fun Gizmos for Older Kids and Tweens (ages 9 to 12)
Surprise your picky tween with high-tech gadgets they can use whether for playing alone or with their friends. From kid-friendly drones and RC racers to spy toys, these fresh toy suggestions will definitely keep your tweeners happily entertained all summer.
Cool Beginner Drones

Here’s one for your kiddie spies — a legit, wide-range walkie talkie set for kids. Dubbed ‘BEST OF THE BEST’ by the Chicago Tribune, these voice-activated walkies may be built for kids but have adult 2-way radio capabilities. Best used for backyard adventures, spy games, talking to friends in the neighborhood within a 2-mile radius, or just fooling around with family indoors. For a full outdoor adventure experience, grab the 2-walkie set with a pair of binoculars.
Stunt RC Car
Best for older children, the Cyclone stunt car is built for rugged use. If you’re looking for an RC car that’s awesome to race both indoors and outdoors, this Cyclone RC is the way to go.
