Danny is the father of a very active 2-year-old and has made plenty of mistakes buying toys over the last couple years so hopes his site can help others avoid the same fate.

Sonic is back. With the return of Sonic to the big screen in 2022 with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (follow up to Sonic the Hedgehog) and the release of Sonic Origins on the Switch, it’s safe to say we are in the peak Sonic era.

If your kids love Sonic, you probably know that Sonic is all they want.

Sure, you can buy other toys but it’s their Sonic toys the ones they will take with them everywhere they go. I bet their favorite pijamas, t-shirt, socks, backpack, and games they play are all Sonic.

Believe me, I know, my son is a huge Sonic fan.

That’s why I thought it’d be worth it to take the time to identify the best Sonic toys currently available to buy in the United States. I headed up the research for this article myself as my 4-year-old can’t get enough of Sonic, and made sure to read ALL the reviews for toys I haven’t bought already to make sure I didn’t include any toys with serious flaws or issues highlighted with other parents.

Anyway, enough with the introductions…
