Ian Ellis, toy buyer at John Lewis, said: “This year, the toys assortment at John Lewis is bigger and better. With Furby selling out in record time last year, we expect these furry friends to be another huge hit with parents and children. Taking tips from Britain’s favourite television shows such as The Apprentice and Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals, the next generation is inspired to recreate these professions at home with creative and innovative play.”

The list is as follows:

  • John Lewis Mini Kitchen, John Lewis
  • John Lewis Detective Watch and Pen Set, John Lewis
  • Doc McStuffins Doctors Set, Flair
  • Lego Creator Winter Village Cottage, Lego
  • Christmas Furby (exclusive Christmas version of Furby Boom), Hasbro
