Move over unicorns and rainbows, the new trend—both for children and adults—are fluffy and adorable... llamas! I know you've been seeing them everywhere and wondering why they suddenly became so popular (when you type 'llamas' on Google, the first results are that specific question, so clearly people are curious).
According to Ali Mierzejewski, Editor-in-Chief of The Toy Inside, llamas have become so popular among kids because they look silly and weird, and kids love both things. We've also been seeing a trend of children preferring animals like llamas and sloths over mythological creatures like unicorns and mermaids, or classic dogs and teddy bears.
These are our favorite llama products for the whole family:
