As a superhero who has been around 80+ years, Batman still knows how to reel in his fans. Kids of all ages love the crime fighter and it’s no question why finding the best Batman toys for your favorite pint-sized superhero is high on our list.
Best Batman Playsets
While the most expensive choice, the Transforming Batcave is popular and well rated among parents who say it is “well worth the price.” Although not as expensive, the 57 piece LEGO Batman vs The Riddler Robbery Set is also a popular purchase with parents saying if your child likes LEGO’s and Batman, it is a great set that includes a Batmobile, Batman, Riddler, and ATM machine. Also mid-priced, the Batcave Playset includes a Batman action figure and is an Amazon Choice toy. Another well priced and well rated toy is the Batcopter, which includes a helicopter and an action figure. Our lowest priced pick is the Hot Wheels and DC Universe Batcave Playset [Amazon Exclusive], which some customers complained that the cars pictured were not the cars that they received with their purchase.
BATMAN 3-in-1 Batcave Playset
The BATMAN 3-in-1 Batcave Playset is pretty much the ultimate Batman gift.
Firstly, as the name states, you can create a variety of setups. There are two different sides, the Batcave on one and Gotham City on the other. In addition, it can split apart into 3 levels that can be used together or separately.
There is also a bat signal and light-up bat computer. 3 AAA batteries are needed but are not included.
Secondly, to ensure your kiddo can fight crime from the moment they open it, the set comes with a Batman figurine with 6 different pieces of armor. The action figure has a cloth cape and is capable of 11 points of articulation.
Thirdly, included in the playset is a working zipline for Batman to slide into the Batcave, a secret escape door, a jail cell, and an armory revel chamber. Your superhero can even shine the Bat-Signal up in the sky.
Finally, the Batcave Playset measures 4″ x 24″ x 15″ and weighs just over 4 pounds. All 4-inch action figures are compatible with the playset, but as a reminder, it just comes with the one Batman.
The Transforming Batcave is sure to put a smile on your little superhero’s face.
Firstly, when you turn the power pad, the Batcave transforms into Batman’s headquarters. The Batwings open and several platforms pop up and expand. In addition, the eyes on the Batman on top light up.
With the Batcave, you receive both Batman and Joker 3″ figurines. You also get handcuffs to bring the Joker into the jail in the Batcave.
Secondly, there is a projective launcher on the playset, allowing Batman to protect Gotham City. The power pad opens revealing the secret garage and an elevator is installed on the playset, allowing Batman to go up and down.
A wing pack is included for the Batman figure and a secret compartment holds hidden armor.
Finally, the price is a bit steep on this one, but it would be the perfect gift for a birthday or holiday. The ideal age range is 3-8. There are little pieces, so you’ll want to make sure tiny fingers stay away. In addition, 2 AAA batteries are required and they are included.
LEGO DC Batman Batmobile
The LEGO DC Batman Batmobile is perfect for the big kids in your house. LEGOs are huge in my house and I’m quite certain we own every Batman LEGO set on the market, including this one.
Firstly, the set comes with 342 pieces and is best suited for kids ages 7 and up. If you’ve ever bought a LEGO set or at least gone shopping for one, you know how pricey they can get. Thankfully, the Batman Batmobile set is pretty reasonable as far as LEGO sets go.
Secondly, the set comes with both Batman and Joker LEGO figures. The Batmobile has a cockpit where the Batman can fit right in. It also has shooters that can be shot off the sides.
When the Batmobile is put together, it measures 2″ high and 9″ long.
Finally, I love LEGOs. I don’t love stepping on them but I love what they have to offer, both mentally and for play. When kids put together a LEGO set, they are working on those fine motor skills. Have you seen how small the pieces are?
In addition, they must learn how to read the manual and follow directions in order to complete the set. Then the building fun comes and, I can tell you there is a major sense of satisfaction when they are complete.
We have you covered if you are interested in LEGO sets for younger builders.
Batman vs The Riddler Lego Set
The Batman vs The Riddler Lego Set is the perfect set-up once your child outgrows the DUPLO set below.
Firstly, the set contains only 59 pieces, making it easier for a younger child to put together. Included are both Batman and the Riddler figurines.
In addition, your tiny crime-fighter can make their own Batmobile, complete with a flame piece sticking out the back.
Secondly, kids can build an ATM machine for the Riddler to attempt his bank robbery. Extra accessories include a Batarang, a buildable skateboard with a place for the Riddler to stand on, a crowbar, and two pieces of money.
Thirdly, the LEGO set comes with easy-to-follow directions, allowing even novice builders to create the superhero scene. Once built, kids can use their imagination to play with their favorite crime fighter.
Finally, the Batman vs the Riddler LEGO set is ideal for kids 4 and up, making it a great starter LEGO set for younger kids. It’s also a great way to work on fine motor skills, which are still developing at the age of 4.
When the Batmobile is in the shop, your super hero will have loads of fun with the Imaginext Batcopter.
Firstly, the Batcopter comes complete with its own Batman figure, who can sit comfortably in the cockpit and take off to the night sky.
Secondly, the landing gear turns into a claw by pulling the trigger in the back of the Batcopter, perfect for capturing any villains along the way. The set brings lots of details, including Batman’s yellow utility belt and Batman logo on either side of the copter.
In addition, while not battery-operated, your child can spin the propellers by hand. The advantage to this is, no little fingers can get caught in the propellers.
Thirdly, the Batcopter is over 8 inches in length and 5 inches in height, making it a great size for little hands. The figurine stands at about 3 inches tall.
Finally, the Batcopter is best suited for kids ages 3-8. In my opinion, the kiddos in the younger age range will have more fun with it, since it is small in size.
Batcave Playset with Hot Wheels
The Batcave Playset with Hot Wheels is the perfect combination for lovers of the fast cars and the legendary superhero.
Firstly, the Playset comes equipped with its own Batmobile Hot Wheels car. You can race cars down the ramp and send all villains right to the jail cell at the bottom.
In addition, the set is complete with a Batcopter that attaches to the top of the playset but can be removed for play.
Secondly, the rotating elevator allows your batmobile to quickly get to the top and then launch the Batcopter.
Finally, there is a storage area to keep other Hot Wheels cars. In addition, you can connect other similar playsets, allowing for even more fun.
The recommended age range is 4-10 years old.
Best Batman Action Figures
The DC Comics Batman with Transforming Armor is a 4″ action figure with 11 moving parts as well as transforming armor. The DC Multiverse Batman has 22 moving parts and measures at 7″ tall. With 11 points of articulation, the Batman Rebirth Action Figure is the largest figure at 12″ tall.
Batman Action Figure
The Batman Action Figure is the perfect starter toy for any superhero’s collection.
Firstly, the 12-inch action figure has movable arms and legs with 11 different articulations, making it easy for your little one to find the best action pose for their Batman. No superhero is complete without their cape, and the Batman action figure comes with a cloth one, perfect for flying through the night.
Secondly, there are no loose pieces, which makes it safe for younger kiddos. Besides the cloth cape, the figure is made from hard plastic, ensuring it can withstand rough play or capturing villains.
Finally, the Batman Action Figure is priced well and comes in under $10. It is best suited for children ages 3 and up.
In my opinion, this is the perfect sized action figure for all superhero fanatics.
Batman Action Figure
If you want a bit more advanced action figurine, then this is the one for you. The Batman Action Figure comes complete with a cape, cowl, two swords, and a base.
Firstly, the Batman stands at 7″ tall and has up to 22 moving parts, letting your kiddo pick from a wide range of poses for play. It also includes a base to stand the figure upon.
Secondly, the action figure was designed by Todd McFarlane, who began drawing Batman in the 1980s. With this figurine, he wanted to create a never-before-seen version of Batman. Also included is a collectible art card by McFarlane.
Finally, this one is designed for children ages 12 and up. While I’m always a follower of age requirements, I don’t see any reason why the age range can’t start at 8 years old.
BATMAN Action Figure with Transforming Armor
The BATMAN Action Figure with Transforming Armor is a fun addition to any Batman lovers collection.
Firstly, this isn’t a large figurine. It stands at just 4″, so prepare for that when you order it. Aside from the size, it is a really neat toy.
The Batman figurine attaches to the Batcopter and with the press of a button, the wings open up. In addition, you can spin the propellers on top. The figurine has 11 points of articulation, allowing your kiddo to find the perfect action pose for every crime-fighting situation.
Finally, the ideal age for this BATMAN action figure is 4-6. In my opinion, other kiddos might enjoy it as well because of the transforming armor.
Best Batman Costumes
Similar in popularity and customer ratings, the Batman Classic Mask and Cape Set includes both a cape and mask for your superheroes from age 4-6. However, the Batman Voice Changing Mask has 15 sounds, including the voice of Batman. It is for ages 4 and up and requires 3 AAA batteries.
BATMAN Classic Mask and Cape Set
The BATMAN Classic Mask and Cape Set isn’t just for Halloween. If your kids are anything like mine, they will happily play dress up any day of the week.
Firstly, both the mask and cape are adjustable so you can pick the right fit for your child. The mask has an elastic band to help it stay in place. In addition, the cape has a Velcro closing strap to make sure it doesn’t fall off during play.
Secondly, the mask has cushions on the nose, making sure it doesn’t bother your kiddo. The cape has a pleather look and feel to it.
Thirdly, dress-up is a great source of imagination play which is so important for child development. When they engage in pretend play, they are working on their social and emotional roles in life. Self-esteem can even be built, just by playing pretend!
I love watching my kids play dress-up and seeing their imaginations soar. It’s really fun as an observer.
Finally, the BATMAN Classic Mask and Cape Set is best for children ages 4-6. This is mostly due to it not being able to fit the tiniest of superheroes.
Batman Voice Changing Mask
The Batman Voice Changing Mask is just plain cool. If your kiddo is really trying to be like the famous superhero, you’ve got to check it out.
Firstly, the mask comes with over 15 different sounds. The button on the side of the mask will activate the sounds and phrases and also light up the eyes.
Secondly, when your kiddo speaks into the mask, it automatically changes their voice to that of Batman’s.
In addition, the mask has adjustable straps, making it easy to fit your own superhero. It weighs about 1.5 lbs, so it isn’t too heavy on your child’s face.
Finally, the mask is best suited for children ages 4 and up. It requires 3 AAA batteries, which are included. That’s always a plus for me.
You might just be tempted to try it out for yourself.
Best Batmobile Toys
Price is a factor when considering Batman toys. The Hauck Batmobile Pedal Go Kart is the most expensive but is a ride on toy for ages 4-8 years, and it is an Amazon Choice toy. Less costly, the Launch and Defend Batmobile is a popular and well rated remote control vehicle for ages 4 and up. At a lower price point, the Remote Controlled Batmobile and the Fisher-Price Batmobile are popular among Amazon customers and designed for young Batman fans of 3-4 years old.
Nest on my list is the Imaginext Batmobile. Another great option for any Batman fan.
Firstly, the cockpit opens up, allowing the included Batman figurine to fit perfectly inside. In addition, the Batmobile spreads its wings, showing off the famous bat symbol.
Secondly, it includes 3 projectiles that shoot from the rotating cannons. When the Batmobile is on the ground, the projectiles can shoot up to two feet away. For that reason alone, I don’t recommend gifting this to smaller children. Always make sure your own superhero is pointing the projectiles away from people.
Finally, the Batmobile is fairly lightweight, weighing just under 14 ounces. It’s not a huge car but a decent size allowing for plenty of play.
The suggested age range for the Imaginext Batmobile is 3-8.
BATMAN Batmobile Remote Control Vehicle
The BATMAN Batmobile is the perfect remote control car for beginners.
Firstly, the joystick on the remote control allows you to go left, right, forward, and in reverse. You can even race up to 6 vehicles at once using its 2.4GHz frequency. In addition, the Batmobile can be controlled from up to 250 feet away.
Secondly, I find this to be a great starter remote control. It’s pretty basic and will be easy for a younger child to use. It doesn’t open up and has no real designs on it, it has a simple black matte finish. It’s also not huge, measuring 12 inches in length.
In addition, it runs well on both carpet and hard flooring.
Finally, the controller requires 2 AAA batteries and the vehicle requires 3 AAA batteries, neither of which are included. I recommend buying rechargeable batteries, otherwise, you are going to find yourself buying new batteries often.
The BATMAN Batmobile is best suited for children ages 4-6.
Batman Launch and Defend Batmobile
The Batman Launch and Defend Batmobile is a bit of a step up from the previous remote control car on my list of the best Batman toys. It includes an exclusive 4 inch Batman figurine, Batmobile, and remote control. The car is roughly 14 inches in length.
Firstly, using the remote control you are able to eject Batman from inside the vehicle. The remote control also steers right, left, reverse, and forward. While it only includes the one Batman figurine, all 4-inch figures will fit inside the Batmobile.
Secondly, with 2.4GHz frequency, you are able to race up to 6 vehicles at a time. In addition, the remote control will work up to 250 feet away.
Finally, what I like about this Batmobile is it charges via its built-in USB cable. The cockpit lights up as you charge it.
The Batman Launch and Defend Batmobile is suitable for children 4 and up.
The Batmobile Go-Kart is the perfect chance for your kiddo to feel like they are driving the real Batmobile, in Go-Kart form of course.
Firstly, the Go-Kart is equipped with 3 point steering, making it easy for your kiddo to navigate. In addition, it is built with a sturdy steel tube frame.
Secondly, the seat is adjustable so you are able to find the right position for your kiddo. The Go-Kart does feature an 8 ball style handbrake and race-style pedals. This allows for a smooth ride and a better grip.
Thirdly, keep in mind this is a pedal-operated bike, not run by batteries. In addition, the wheels do not require air. There is some assembly required but you should have it done within an hour.
Finally, the Batmobile is best suited for children ages 4-8, with a max weight capacity of 120 lbs. Although the max weight is fairly high, you really need to take into consideration your child’s height. The car itself is 44 inches in length.
The Go-Kart itself is fairly lightweight, at 22 lbs. The only negative is the front hood tends to fall off easily, which may bother your pint-sized crime fighter over time.
You can also look at our detailed list of all the best Go-Karts for your child.
Best Batman Gadgets
A very inexpensive gadget is the Bat Signal is a light up but very small bat signal that can show on your child’s wall plus it comes with a book telling the history of Batman with illustrations. This is a popular choice among Batman fans. However, the more expensive but not outrageous DC Comics Batman Touchscreen Smart Watch is an Amazon Choice product that has many features that your Batman fan will love.
The Batman: Bat Signal is a miniature version of the superhero’s own distress signal device.
Firstly, not only do you receive a bat signal, but it also includes a 48-page book detailing the history of Batman, and features full-color illustrations.
Secondly, be aware the bat signal is very small. It measures 3.25 x 3.88 inches and weighs just over 2 ounces. So while it won’t work on the night sky, it will work just fine on your child’s bedroom wall.
Finally, the bat signal works off batteries, which are included. I’m always a fan of this. It turns on and off with the click of a switch.
That bat signal is best suited for children ages 6 and up.
DC Comics Batman Touchscreen Smart Watch
Even Batman needs to check the time and can do so with this DC Comics Batman Touchscreen Smart Watch.
Firstly, the smartwatch allows your child to take selfies and record videos. They can download them and share them with family and friends.
In addition, the watch has a built-in pedometer, calculator, games, stopwatch, and alarm.
Secondly, your child can pick one of 10 clock faces, all starring Batman. They can also choose from a digital or analog clock.
Thirdly, the watch’s battery has a long-life and is charged via a USB plug. The adjustable band is black and sports the Batman logo.
Finally, the watch is water-resistant up to 100 feet, allowing your superhero to fight crime on land and in water.
Best Batman Toys for Toddlers
The most expensive toddler toy is the Lego Duplo Batman Batcave which has 33 pieces for ages 2 and up. An Amazon Choice toy, the Batman Collectible Plush is a 21″ plush doll that is good for ages 0-99 and comes with a mid-range price tag. Both an Amazon Choice and Amazon Exclusive product, the Batmobile Tent is a reasonably priced, large pop up tent for ages 3-8. And finally, the least expensive Fisher-Price Little People Batmobile is designed for ages 18 months – 5 years and comes with both a Batmobile car and a Little People Batman action figure.
Batman Collectible Plush
The Batman Collectible Plush sits at 21″ tall, making it the perfect take-a-long love for your Batman fanatic.
Firstly, the ultra-soft plush is great for all ages. The eyes are stitched on, so even the tiniest of superheroes will enjoy cuddling up with the Batman plush.
Secondly, while the plush is durable, it shouldn’t be put in the wash. If your little one gets their sticky fingers on, just spot clean it and let it air dry.
Finally, I feel like the Batman Collectible Plush is the perfect nighttime companion for all those Batman lovers out there. It’s a great size for your little one to wrap their sweet little arms around.
Batman Pop Up Batmobile Tent
The Batman Pop Up Batmobile Tent is the perfect solution to giving your little superhero their own Batcave right at home.
Firstly, the tent easily pops open when taken out of its case. All you have to do is attach the support poles and your kiddo is in for a fun time. Unfortunately, the poles aren’t the highest of quality, so make sure your superhero is gentle on the tent.
Secondly, the tent measures 40″ W x 27″ D x 27″ and is suitable for children ages 3 and up. Big kids are definitely not going to fit comfortably inside.
In addition, the tent is easy to clean using a damp cloth and mild soap. Keep in mind, there is no floor to the tent, so it isn’t suitable for actual camping out.
Thirdly, the tent has a rear entrance that can be rolled up to add other tunnels and a roof where they can peak through.
Finally, the tent can be folded up and put right in the carrying case when not in use. It takes a little time to master putting it away. You need to twist and then fold it up.
As a side note, I’ve had tents similar to this one and I will say, kids can be rough with stuff, and these tents can get easily damaged if they are jumping around too much inside.
Little People 2-in-1 Batmobile
The Little People 2-in-1 Batmobile is a great option for smaller crime fighters.
Firstly, the Batmobile is suitable for children ages 18 months through 5 years. I will say, it does seem better for the younger kiddos, and a 5-year-old may get bored with it.
In addition, the car comes with its own Batman figurine with an attached Batarang.
Secondly, the car flips open with the press of a button and becomes a command center for Batman. Your little one can turn a dial to see what’s happening in Gotham City. The playset even includes a bedroom, gym, and dining room.
The only issue with the 2-in-1 Batmobile is the doors have a hard time staying closed, which can be frustrating for young superheroes.
Finally, the Little People brand is great for smaller hands. The bigger pieces make them easier to grasp, as they are still working on their fine motor skills.
Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Ultimate Hero Villain Match-Up Figure Set
With this Imaginext DC Super Friends figure set, you can create action-packed adventures with 10 superhero and super-villain figurines. The set includes Batman, Superman, Catwoman, The Joker, Two-Face, Lex Luthor, and more are among the ten figures included. Bring out your child’s imagination with toys without noise, lights, or actions.
To bring epic fights to life, each figure comes with its own action attachment! Their arms and legs move too and are ready to fight impressive battles with realistic actions. Gift these to kids ages 3 to 8-year-olds in preschool.
What good is Batman without some teammates and villains? What’s even better, is with all these figurines, kids can play with their friends and reenact shows and movies. Also, they are very small at under three inches and perfect for taking on the go for trips.
Toys like these allow kids to use their incredible imaginations and learn to balance good and evil while having good old-fashioned fun.
Do keep these away from younger siblings as they are very small.
LEGO DUPLO Batman Batcave
The LEGO DUPLO Batman Batcave is the perfect gift for the smallest of Batman lovers. If you are unfamiliar with DUPLO, they are twice the size of LEGO pieces, making this set perfect for little ones two and up.
Firstly, included in the 33 piece set are Batman, Joker, Robin, and the Batmobile. In addition, your little superhero can build their own Batcave, which stands at 5″ in height.
Secondly, what’s great about DUPLO sets is they all can connect. So, if you have any other sets, your child can build with them all together.
The bigger blocks are a greater starter set until your child is old enough for a regular LEGO set.
Finally, the DUPLO blocks are great at helping to develop fine motor skills in younger children. The blocks are bigger, allowing them to easily put them together and take them apart.

Buying Criteria for Batman Toys
Toys for All Ages
I wanted to make sure to find the best Batman toys for a variety of age ranges. Superheroes come in all sizes and so should their toys. A one or two-year-old really shouldn’t be playing with a toy that comes with tiny pieces. On the flip side, a 10-year-old probably would be bored quickly with a toy designed for a 2-year-old.
The majority of Batman toys are geared to kids at least 4 years of age, but I made it my mission to find ones suitable for children younger than that. Some Batman sets come with a slew of small pieces which is not good to have around very little ones. They are too prone to putting things in their mouth and risking choking.
Some Batman toys can get quite pricey so I tried to find a varied price range, ensuring there was one on the list for everyone.
Always remember, you get what you pay for. You’ll likely find a good price on an individual action figure but a whole playset will make the price tag go up.
I will say, while LEGO sets are expensive, they last and your child can build over and over again with them. In my opinion, they are a worthwhile investment.
If your kids are anything like mine, they can get a bit rambunctious when playing superheroes. I mean, they are fighting villains after all. Therefore, I made a point to find the best Batman toys that can withstand a little rough play.
Thankfully, most Batman toys are well-built, specializing in the ability to fight crime.
While we love our children dearly, they are also impatient sometimes when building new toys. I get it, it’s exciting to get something new and you don’t want to have to wait to use it. Therefore, I greatly appreciate toys that are ready to use or just need a smidge of assembly.
Obviously, with something like the LEGOs, the assembly is where the fun is. However, for a regular toy, I tried to find the easiest toys to put together if an assembly is required.
FAQs About Batman Toys
What are the best Batman toys on Amazon?
When you search for the best Batman toys, you get thousands of results. Luckily for you, I scoured through them to find the very best.
The most popular selling Batman items are action figures and playsets. The top brands selling the best Batman toys are Fisher-Price, LEGO, and Hot Wheels.
Where can you buy Batman toys?
Amazon is surely a great go-to when it comes to buying the best Batman toys. If you are wanting to walk into a store, Target and Walmart both offer a selection of Batman toys.
When you shop on Amazon, you will get tons more options than if you just walk into a local store.
What is the best Batman action figure?
For one superhero, there are plenty of options when it comes to Batman action figures. Most of the cars and playsets are compatible with the 4″ figurines.
However, the larger Batman action figures are a great option for kids of all ages, which is why I would recommend buying one of those. I also feel kids will have more fun playing with them on their own if they don’t have a playset.
What age is best suited for Batman toys?
Unfortunately, a lot of Batman toys include small pieces making them more suitable for kiddos 4 and up. However, Batman is just as popular with the younger kids so I made a point to find some toys that are suitable for little ones.
It’s always advisable to check the recommended age requirements for a Batman toy since there could be a choking hazard with small parts. In addition, the toys made for the younger kiddos are probably going to end up boring for the older ones. That’s why it’s best to always take into consideration the age range on the packaging.
When did Batman become so popular?
Batman flew into the scene in 1939 and has been an iconic superhero ever since. Batman didn’t get his own TV series until 1966 and thus began a string of television shows and movies.
With his sidekick Robin, Batman fights crime all over Gotham City. While some of the Batman movies are much too mature for little ones, kids still love the superhero. As a bit of a fun fact, and something my 5-year-old reminds me of, Batman doesn’t have any superpowers. The crime fighter gets around in one of his vehicles, like the Batmobile or his Batplane.
