June top of the tots

I’m all for #playmatters. Getting kids outside, getting dirty, crafting and engaging in pretend play is so important. But kids also love their books, apps, music and TV. If you are wondering what’s hot for kids when it comes to entertainment, I’m here to help!

Every month I collate top 10 lists of bestselling kids books, young adult books, kids apps, top rating ABC4Kids TV shows, DVDs and music. It’s interesting to see what’s popular each month and gives me some great gift ideas.

For the full top 10 lists, head to the TOP OF THE TOTS pages in the menu bar. Here’s a summary of what’s currently hot for kids…..
