Dream Toys 16 – This years must have toys for Christmas
On Wednesday I nipped over to London to have a good look at what a panel of experts have agreed will be this Christmas’ best selling toys. Each year a panel of leading toy retailers decide what will be the big hits of the year, and they’re usually pretty spot on.
The full Top 12 list for 2016 is as follows: (in no particular order; all prices quoted are RRPs)
Shopkins Chef Club Hot Spot Kitchen Flair Leisure Products £24.99
Snuggles My Dream Puppy Character Options £49.99
Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyperfire Hasbro £49.99
Speak Out Hasbro £19.99
Silly Sausage John Adams £19.99
Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster Lego £89.99
Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter Lego £69.99
Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage Mattel £89.99
Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Sky-High Bridge Jump Mattel £99.99
Hatchimals Spin Master Toys £59.99
Paw Patrol Air Patroller Spin Master Toys £39.99
SelfieMic Worlds Apart £19.99
My personal favourites from this list were the Snuggles My Dream Puppy, which breathes when sleeping, and closes his eyes when you stroke him. He was so soft and snuggly, I wouldn’t mind having one for myself! I also loved the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyperfire – it fires 5 darts a second, up to 90 feet. Perfect for firing at Daddy when he falls asleep on the sofa after Christmas dinner.
This years list seems to have gone back to the some old favourites (Lego and Thomas & Friends) and family fun (Silly Sausage and Speak Out) which is what I like to see.
I think this now means that Christmas is well and truly on its way, so I guess I best start my Christmas shopping!
Thanks to Zoe Corkhill at Mama Geek for letting me steal a few of her photos. It was really lovely to see you there and catch up!
