Why dropship toys?

Toys are timeless. As long as there are children in this world, there will be toys for them to play with. The global toy market is worth more than $88 billion, which proves that there’s money to be made if you can identify a profitable niche. There is a global trend towards eCommerce as people prefer to shop online and toys are great products that are in demand all year round.

The other major benefit to dropshipping toys is that the market is constantly evolving and parents are always looking for new options to entertain their children. If you can tap into a new trend there is potential for you to make a lot of money. Despite the toy market being highly competitive and dominated by big brands, dropshipping provides you with the opportunity to test the market and, potentially, build a successful eCommerce business.

How dropshipping toys works

The best thing about dropshipping toys that you don’t need to spend money to make money. You won’t pay a cent until you make a sale. That means you don’t need to place any large orders or store excess stock. This is why dropshipping is such a popular eCommerce business model. Toys are typically quite small, lightweight, durable, and easy to ship, which is an added bonus. Here’s how dropshipping works:

  1. A customer purchases a toy from your online store
  2. You place an order for that toy with your supplier
  3. Your supplier packages and ships the toy directly to your customer

Best toys to dropship

SaleHoo’s powerful market research tool will help you to find profitable toys with high sell-rates and low competition. Remember that one of the keys to dropshipping success is choosing products that will be easy, affordable and safe to ship internationally.

Top-selling toys include:

Education toys: These toys can help to teach children about shapes, words, and mathematics by making it fun and interactive. As children get older, the toys can become more advanced to teach them about music, electronics, and science. They are extremely popular with parents who want to give their children a head start.

Mechanical toys: These are toys that move. Everything from wind-up wooden toys to remote control cars. Mechanical toys tend to be popular with slightly older children - think 4-10 years - but there are varieties that are suitable for all ages.

Dolls and soft toys: These toys have stood the test of time. Children still love to play with dolls and soft toys and just because Barbie is a household name doesn’t mean you can’t compete with your own brand of doll.
