What are the best Godzilla toys? To find out we asked the experts: kids! We asked Godzilla toy enthusiasts to try out several versions of this classic toy. Which were most fun? Had the best detail? Here are the ones we recommend.

FYI: We've been reviewing and rating products for the home and families since 1994. We don't take money or freebies from the brands we review. Our work is 100% reader-supported!

A Brief History Of Godzilla!

Godzilla first debuted in a 1954 Japanese film, born out of the recent (for the time) experience of the nuclear bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Essentially Godzilla is a dinosaur awakened by nuclear radiation . . . and he isn’t very happy.

Here’s how Ben Mankiweiz, host of Turner Classic Movies, described the first Godzilla movie:

Japan is thrown into a panic after several ships explode and are sunk near Odo Island. An expedition to the island led by paleontologist Professor Kyohei Yemani soon discovers something more devastating than imagined in the form of a 50-meter-tall monster whom the natives call Gojira. Now the monster begins a rampage that threatens to destroy not only Japan, but the rest of the world as well.

While dinosaur toys are always a perennial favorite, the recent boom in Godzilla toys is thanks to the 2021 movie of Godzilla vs. Kong. Of course, that wasn’t the first meeting of these creatures—the first King Kong vs. Godzilla movie dates back to 1962.

Here are our favorite Godzilla toys, as judged by actual kids.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living off of affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
