Christmas toys

Ok so it’s just October, autumn is officially here – despite the mild weather, but already the tins of chocolates and boxes of crackers are starting to appear in the shops, it’s officially time to start thinking about Christmas!!!!!

What are going to be the big toy sellers this year? According to Argos the toys that will be flying off the shelves this year include:

Sing a Long with Elsa

Frozen is still big (certainly in our house!). There is a sing-a-long with Elsa doll which will be on many young ladies lists to Santa, this doll costs £39.99. I have to say my daughter is sure to have this on her list!

Minions are also still huge – including a large tumbling Stuart minion which as the name suggests tumbles. This will set you back £49.99.

The big board game this year is called Pie Face which includes a hand with a pie on it and you take turns to put your face in the hole to see if you will be the one to get the pie in your face! I am hoping this one does not make it onto my 5 year olds list!!! This will cost £19.99.

My Friend Freddy is an interactive teddy bear – if you are of a certain age, think a new and more interactive Teddy Ruxpin, with games and activates, priced at £39.99. I can see this being on lists of boys and girls young and slightly older.

Tracy Island

Thunderbirds are back and Tracey Island has been updated with smart technology. At £79.99 I am sure many husbands, I mean young boys will have this on their list.

Lego is always a firm favourite and has been on Christmas lists every year in various different guises. This year the City Deep Exploration Vessel seems to be the must have, this include a boat a ship wreck and treasure and it is priced at £79.99.

Barbie is another firm favourite and her new Style your way house is this seasons must have. It is priced at £99.99.

Have your little ones already started to make a list or are they just watching the adverts saying can I have that when it comes to most rubbish plastic looking things! I can tell which on this list my little ones will be asking for so I had better start saving hard! I’d love to hear what your little ones are asking for and also if you have any tips or tricks when it comes to saving up to ensure Father Christmas can bring what your child asks for!
