Of all the mythical creatures, unicorns are some of the best-loved.
Stories about these legendary creatures have circulated for generations, their subjects enchanting countless children. There's even a National Unicorn Day (April 9th, in case you were wondering).
If your little one can't get enough of these majestic creatures, a unicorn toy might just become their most treasured possession. There are many unicorn toys on offer: soft, stuffed toys in the shape of a unicorn, display unicorn pieces and even unicorn hoppers. From Myla the Unicorn, who can sing, light up and change colours, to a fairy unicorn garden that grows real grass, unicorn-themed toys make for some of the coolest out there, and there are so many to choose from.
We've gathered together a range of the best unicorn toys on the market so you can pick the perfect treat for your little unicorn-lover. Take a look below.
Kidadl's Top Pick
Whilst all the unicorn toys on our list come highly recommended, this stuffed unicorn is our top pick - you can't go wrong with a cuddly toy!
1. Jellycat Bashful Unicorn
This 'Bashful Unicorn' from soft toy favourite Jellycat is so adorable we had to put it as our top pick; gift it to your child and watch them fall in love! It can be enjoyed by children as young as one (and is likely to be treasured for many years afterwards) and it's beautifully designed; we love the fluffy pink tail, shimmering horn and sweet, almost quizzical facial expression. Plus, its super soft plush is amazingly silky, making it the perfect snuggle partner for your little one.

This Vtech Myla the Magical Unicorn was our favourite interactive unicorn toy. She comes with a makeup brush, palette, microphone and five cute little hair accessories so your child can make her over to their heart's content. Just choose a colour from the palette and swipe the makeup brush over her horn, lids and wings to see how they magically change colour. She also sings, tells your child their lucky colour and offers a prediction for the day. This Myla unicorn is sure to charm your child!
