Selfridges is the latest retailer to release a top toys list, featuring a wide range of toy categories as well as top players in the licensing sector.
Selfridges’ predictions for this year’s best-selling toys include a range of classic, creative and sustainable gifts designed to keep little ones engaged and entertained this Christmas and long after the festive holidays.
This year’s list is as follows:
Barbie’s Dream House (Mattel) – The latest version of the iconic playset includes lighting, music and a working lift.
Present Pets (Spin Master) – Present Pets are animatronic puppies and kittens that unbox themselves. Each pet has over 100 sounds and reactions.
KidiZoom Studio (VTech) – The Vtech KidiZoom Studio comes with a camera and green screen back drop so young vloggers can capture fun videos with friends and family and edit to add backgrounds, special effects and sounds.
Adventures with Mario Starter Set (Lego) – Builders big and small can create a course for Mario who gives instant expressive responses via the LCD screen and speaker. By downloading the free Lego Super Mario app, players can earn virtual coins as they move across the course and collect mystery items from the ‘?’ blocks. Once the first mission is completed, rearrange the bricks to create new levels.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (Lego) – This set comprises 3,696 pieces to create a gloriously detailed replica, featuring the classic scissor doors and 8-speed working gearbox.
