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.

If your child would like something other than a unicorn plush toy, take a look at these slime kits and these garden toys.
