Need some inspiration for your kids Christmas presents?

We take a look at what’s popular and on the must have list for Christmas 2016.


So what's popular for 2016?


It seems that this year we’ll be saying goodbye to Frozen and hello to Paw Patrol play sets, Rubik’s Cubes, Nerf blasters and Hatchimals.

Pets and retro toys feature heavily amongst the Top 10.
 
Paw Patrol sets, Little Live Pets, My Dream Puppy, Hatchimals and the Shopkins are all hot this season with kids wanting to look after their own ‘pets’.

Hatchimals are the clear favourite and are already flying out the doors of many retail stores.

The Rubik’s Cube is back and celebrates its 40th anniversary. It's still hugely popular amongst kids as well as their nostalgic parents.

Sylvanian Families have made a huge comeback too, along with Furby and scooters in the mix this year.

And if you’re looking for something on trend, Nerf guns are wish list essentials, with a whole range of guns and water blasters to choose from.

However, while some toys have come and gone, it seems Lego has never left. Kids love it and Lego Technics is the new craze for 2016.
