MadeForMums has announced the winners of the MadeForMums Top Christmas Toys 2020, as judged by kids, recommended by parents and approved by experts.

The MadeForMums Top Christmas Toys 2020 celebrate the best children’s toys at every age and stage, from new born to teens. With over 300 nominated toys, 200 toys were shortlisted and rigorously tested at home by children and their parents, marking toys for play potential, value for money and Christmas ‘wow’ factor. The 100 winning Top Xmas Toys 2020 were selected by the MadeForMums editorial team, based on testing feedback, expert comparison – and heated debate.

Ranging from a 80p collectible to a £699 trampoline, this year’s festive Top 100 includes many of the retailers’ most hotly tipped toys, including board games, role play items and licensed favourites.

Susie Boone, editor MadeForMums, said: “What’s stood out to us, from all our hours of testing and all the feedback we’ve had from our amazing child testers, is that, this year, the hot toys are the ones that really make you smile – from a flamingo that poos and a balloon dog that does tricks to fairies that light up or fly. And then there’s games that bring the family together in fun and laughter, whether you’re racing frogs across lilypads or vying for a ‘ride’ on a toy drone.”
