SALT LAKE CITY — For those of you not keeping track at home, 10 months from Friday is Christmas Day. And while many people are still recovering from Christmas two months ago, they simply are not even ready to think ahead to what the most popular toys will be 10 months from now.

That being said, the website premiumjoy.com released Thursday a list of the most popular toys by state. Legos were the big winner on the list. Legos were the most trending toy in 34 states, according to the website.

Popular toys

Lego Home Alone was the most popular toy in 25 states for the past year. Three other Lego sets were the most popular in nine states, including Utah. Those sets were Lego World Map, Lego Typewriter, and Lego Titanic.

All four of the Lego sets also come at a big price tag. The Lego Home Alone is available for $250. However, Lego Titanic costs $637, while Lego World Map comes with price of $250 and Lego Typewriter costs $200.

In Utah, the most popular toy for the past year was Lego World Map. 

After Legos, toy figurines are second on the list, and moving up the list fast. Toy figurines are the most popular toys in nine states. 

Figurines from the 2021 Disney movies Encanto and Luca are among the most popular figurines. Mr. Potato Head, who is known for being in the Toy Stoy movies, is also another popular toy. Mr. Potato Head is the most popular toy in Wyoming, South Dakota and Vermont.
