Hamleys predicts top-selling Christmas toys

Published on: 28th June 2012

Hamleys is tipping traditional favourites such as Mickey Mouse and Barbie, alongside more modern hits such as Moshi Monsters.

Tipped to sell well is the Razor Bella Pocket Mod, the MC350 Razor Dirt Bike, and the Moshi Monster App Monster. The latest versions of last year’s successful kids tablets, Innotab2 and LeapPad2, are also predicted to be snapped up by shoppers.

Some traditional favourites, Mickey Mouse and Barbie, are also expected to perform well with the release of Master Moves Mickey, a breakdancing figure, and a revamped Barbie Dream House, respectively. Relaunched classics Subbuteo and Cabbage Patch Kids are also expected to perform well.

And finally, for those toddlers who may have envied their older brothers’ and sisters’ Mini Micro scooter there’s the Mini Micro 3-in-1, also expected to do well this Christmas.
