So, without further ado, let’s spin-dash into the thrilling realm of Sonic gifts for kids!
1- Sonic Frontiers
Given that Sonic The Hedgehog is a video gaming legend, buying the most recently released game as a gift seems like a safe bet, and Sonic Frontiers is actually quite a bit better than some of Sonic’s previous outings. Whether you’re buying for a kid or an adult-sized kid, a copy of Sonic Frontiers on their preferred platform is a sure fire bet. Sonic Frontiers sees the titular hedgehog traveling to Starfall Islands and running afoul of a rogue AI in the process. As you zoom across five unique islands, you’ll rescue some of Sonic’s friends, take down gargantuan enemies and break the sound barrier multiple times. Is it janky? Sure, but there’s a lot of fun to be had here.
2- Team Sonic Racing RC Car
RC cars have always been a cool gift to give and receive, but an RC car of Sonic the Hedgehog based on his appearance in Team Sonic Racing is certainly one of the coolest RC cars you could buy. Sure, you might need a lifetime’s supply of batteries to keep it going, but it’s still going to get rave reviews. The Team Sonic Racing RC Car includes fully-functioning headlights, making night-time play more of a possibility, and the 2.4GHz control frequency ensures plenty of range and ideal performance. As RC cars go, controlling Sonic is definitely more appealing than just a generic car.
3- SONIC Snapback Hat
Apparel is one way to flaunt your fandom for Sonic the Hedgehog characters, so shop for this Pink Snapback Hat or give it to a fan in your life. It is one size fits all and features Amy Rose holding her Piko Piko Hammer.
4- Kids Beanie Hat
Beanie hats have an advantage over snapback caps because they can actually make ears look cute, so hats like this Sonic Beanie Hat don’t look totally ridiculous. If you’re looking to keep your kid’s head warm, this beanie hat in particular will do an excellent job, while looking pretty darned adorable in the process. While you might think that the hat just contains Sonic’s face on the front, the back of the hat also sports Sonic’s trademark spikes. Whether they’ll trail behind you as majestically as Sonic’s do when he runs remains to be seen, but the hat itself is a great gift.
5- Sonic Mania Plus
Now that you’ve got your kids hooked on Sonic via the movies, it’s time to show them how Sonic fares in his home territory: video games. These days, he tends to fare on the mediocre side, but there’s one recent game in particular that manages to stand head and shoulders above the rest, and it’s Sonic Mania. A hodgepodge of classic sprites and levels, mixed together with level design and gameplay that’s a bit more modernized, Sonic Mania is the franchise’s masterpiece. As far as Sonic games go, there’s none better than Sonic Mania, and because it’s available on most platforms, it’s a perfect gift for any fledgling Sonic fan.
6- SONIC The Hedgehog Oversized Child Costume Jumpsuit
Dress up your kids and race with Sonic the Hedgehog-themed Oversize Costume Jumpsuit for Halloween! The costume features an oversized character hood of Blue Bur, fitting most children, and is made from 100% polyester.
7- Giant Eggman Robot Battle Set
What good are playsets about heroes if there’s not a great villain to direct all the ire towards? If your kids have been playing with toys for a long time, and they’re looking for something new to mess around with, this Giant Eggman Robot set is sure to capture their attention. The set includes Eggman himself piloting his giant robot, along with a catapult contraption designed to launch Sonic at Eggman’s chest piece. Three hits and the robot comes apart completely, making for a fun game in and of itself. In fact, never mind the kids, I want this for myself.
8- LEGO Ideas Green Hill Zone Building Set
While LEGO is definitely fun and enjoyable for all ages and people, this LEGO Ideas kit of Green Hill Zone is absolutely aimed at an older generation than some of the other Sonic merch on offer. It’s fine, because that generation probably remembers playing Green Hill Zone in the first Sonic game when it came out. The Green Hill Zone building set includes part of the iconic first level, along with Sonic himself, two enemies and Dr Robotnik. Completing certain builds will actually grant you the Chaos Emeralds, which you can then display alongside the set, making it a worthwhile build and an amazing gift.
9- SONIC 5 Piece Backpack Set
If you want an eye-catching gift that any Sonic the Hedgehog lover will love, you will never go wrong with the five-piece 16-inch backpack set. Aside from the large interior compartment and adjustable shoulder straps, it features multiple pockets and heavy-duty zippers for closure. It is a perfect accessory for school, camping, and fan conventions. You can add this to your Sonic The Hedgehog toys collection or buy it for a fan of Sonic.
10- Sonic Plush Toy
Your kids will love cuddling up with this three-dimensional Sonic the Hedgehog plush toy. This stuffed-toy version of the famous SEGA videogame character brings out his bold colors and fun-spirited attitude. This Sonic has been made of super soft plush material for a comfortable feel. It’s perfect for snuggling or a great playtime accessory. This toy brings Sonic the Hedgehog to life with fun embroidered face details and dimensional ears and spiky hair shaped exactly like the character in the game.
11- Sonic the Hedgehog Speed RC Vehicle
The thing that Sonic the Hedgehog is mostly known for is its speed. Apparently, he can travel at the speed of light. With this toy, you can recreate the speedy excitement of Sonic the Hedgehog. The toy is equipped with a golden ring controller with which you can define the speed of the toy. I can’t promise you that this Speed RC Vehicle will travel at the speed of light, but it certainly goes fast enough to provide enough fun for your little one.

13- Sonic Kids Smart Watch
The Sonic the Hedgehog kids smartwatch comes loaded with kid-friendly features for your child to enjoy smart wearables. However, unlike smartwatches for adults, this watch is designed specifically with kids in mind. With no wifi, calling, or texting, you can rest assured of your child’s security while they enjoy its cool age-appropriate features. This smartwatch is perfect for little boys and girls.
