The Best of Sweet Suite 23: Fun New Toys, Games and More from the Biggest Night of Play

Saturday, July 15, 2023
I just returned from The Toy Insider's Sweet Suite 23 in New York City and I have SO much to share with you! This event is one of the best in the industry, and features hot new toys, collectibles, video games, and so much more. Some of the toys are brand new to the market, others are 'coming soon,' and some are sneak peeks of future releases. There are classic favorites, character meet and greets and surprises around every corner. I could spend all day telling you about the show! Alas, I know time is precious, so I rounded-up some of my favorites from Sweet Suite 23 that you can scroll through at your own pace. You can also check out my Instagram or Facebook for more footage.

Fingerlings are back and better than ever. They now have adorably fuzzy little heads, over 70 reactions, a sweet little "heart" light, and the ability to sit down. You can find certain styles/colors on Amazon here now, and others are coming to retailers soon. 

Jurassic World Ravenous Raptors

Jurassic World Ravenous Raptors is a new twist on a familiar classic, and I can attest that this set is sturdy and good quality (nothing worse than a flimsy chomping game)! I totally want this one for our family collection. Coming soon from Toy Monster. 


Bitzees are unique digital pets in their own little carrying boxes.They're interactive and you can actually touch them (and they react to your touch). They evolve- each one starts as a "baby" and changes as you nurture and interact with it. You have to see it to believe it! Available on Amazon now

Plush Goals

I adore the sweet, unique plush from Cuddle Barn's Plush Goals! The capybara and axolotl especially stole my heart, but the dragon fruit dragon and the coffee cow were also precious. Find them on Amazon here

Rainbow Brite

Our favorite childhood friend is back! Rainbow Brite is making a fun comeback with her retro-style boxes and collectible line. She was definitely a blast from the past for me! The Loyal Subjects will be releasing the Rainbow Brite line soon, so stay tuned!

Palm Pals

A whole new wave of Palm Pals are coming soon, including eggplant, corn, cherry, tomato, and others. Look for them on Amazon or some of your favorite local retailers. They're so sweet and cuddly and fit in the palm of your hand! 

Pop Soft Plush and Cats vs. Pickles

Pop Soft Plush stole my heart with their artsy array of colors and styles. Turtles, elephants and unicorns make up this artistic line and come in three sizes (mini, mighty and mammoth). They're coming soon from Cepia. Also from Cepia are their hit line of Cats vs. Pickles. The new series will include Cows vs. Aliens and Bears vs. Donuts! 

Pop Taters

The new Pop Taters line cracks me up! Look for the fun and modernized potato head versions of Bob Ross, "The Dude," Dwight Schrute, and even Sonic the Hedgehog. 

Worlds Smallest

World's Smallest never fails to disappoint with their amazing miniature toys and collectibles with actual working parts. The new World's Smallest Barbie figures were awesome (look for Rollerblade Barbie and Blue Cowgirl), as well as their party games like World's Smallest Cornhole and Beer Pong.

Pudgy Penguins

PMI Toys has created a line of figures and plush based on the Pudgy Penguins virtual craze. Starting from 2.99-19.99, the Pudgy Penguins toys come in a variety of collectible figure forms: 4.5-inch with interchangeable accessories, 6.5-inch with included positive messaging and affirmation signs, and 1.5-inch surprise penguin figure in an igloo. Each figure comes with an official, scannable, redeemable code that unlocks a digital penguin customization using different trait boxes. Consumers can obtain rare and epic traits and have a one-of-a-kind forever Pudgy Penguin registered to their name on the blockchain. You can even trade the traits on the Pudgy Penguin marketplace! Check them out on Amazon here.


Wave 3 of the cute knitted plush called AmiAmis is coming soon! They're collectible, squishy and oh so fun! There are so many to collect (you can see them all on their site), with more styles coming soon.

Fidgie Friends

Fidgie Friends are dolls with build in fidget toys for kids. You can find current Fidgie Friends on Amazon and their newer styles (like pizza and ramen noodles) coming soon from Sunny Days Entertainment.

Pokemon Sleep

Pokemon Sleep is a new sleep app coming soon from the makers of Pokemon. Users will be able to work with giant Snorlax to learn how Pokemon sleep. It's kind of like a game and sleep app all in one! Coming this summer from Nintendo. 


You might remember Furby from years past, but the newest version of Furby is cuter (in my opinion), and has light-up ears, blinking eyes, over 600 responses, voice recognition, dance moves, and the ability to talk to other furbys. They're such a fun update for this true classic! Find them on Amazon here

Hape Green Planet Explorers

Hape's Green Planet Explorers are all about sustainability, conservation and education! Whether it's the bamboo panda family's beautiful wooden house with its "solar panel" roof, or the Honey Bees Picnic, there are so many fun ways for kids to learn about the environment and green living. Even Hape's product packaging for Green Planet is sustainable and eco-friendly. Find the whole collection on the Hape site here.  

Little Tikes Big Adventures Metal Detector Mining Truck

The Metal Detector Mining Truck transforms into four real working tools: metal detector, rock tumbler, water tank, and shovels. Kids 3 and up can use the detachable working metal detector to discover hidden items. There's a mini water tank to wash away dirt and dust from what they find, along with a rock tumbler and digging tools. Coming soon to Walmart!


Boop is an adorable "thinky" game for "two clever cats," or so the creators say! A fun and challenging thinking game for two players, the game 'board' looks like a bed and the playing pieces are cute wooden cats. Every time you place a kitten on the board, it 'boops' or moves every other kitten next to it one space away. Line up three kittens in a row to 'graduate' to a cat, and then line up three cats to win! You can find Boop on Amazon here

Pikmin 4

Pikmin lovers rejoice! Our favorite little fellas are back in Pikmin 4. This time around you'll have a "rescue pup" called an oatchi that you can train to help you. Pikmin 4 is coming this month from Nintendo.
