Argos’ most anticipated toys for 2015 have been unveiled in a list dominated by characters from the big and small screen.
Research carried out by Argos reveals that almost 90% of children’s toy boxes across the country contain toys influenced by their favourite TV shows and films, with nearly three quarters of kids across the UK (74%) wishing for at least another one underneath the Christmas tree this year.
Linzi Walker, chief toy buyer, Argos, said: “The list is driven by highly anticipated movie releases and kids’ favourite TV shows. Toys like the Tracy Island, Barbie and Lego are all stellar examples of how this year’s list crosses the generations, bringing the whole family together on Christmas Day.
“With the growing buzz around the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens movie out later this year, we are expecting more toys to launch in the next few months which will be in huge demand by kids and parents alike. The toys are currently a closely guarded secret, so watch this space.”
