It’s only October but when global retail giant Amazon announces its top toys for Christmas 2021, it’s worth, not just paying attention, but jotting them down and adding them to your basket. Come December, you’ll really wish you had.
Interestingly, the list features a mix of old classics and new entries. A Pictionary Air Harry Potter game, a twist on the family favourite, is included, as is a Paw Patrol vehicle transporter. The new additions include a L.O.L. Surprise Movie Magic Studios set, which includes 12 dolls to film movies with; at £147, you’ll have to be sure it’s something that’s definitely on their Christmas wish list.
There’s plenty of film franchises represented with a Spidey and His Amazing Friends game (based on Spider-Man) and a Batman Transforming Playset. For little ones, there’s Little Live Pets Gotta Go Turdle, which is a potty-training aid as well as a toy, Linkimals Dance ‘n’ Groove Penguin and a LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course.
‘It is always an exciting time of year when we release the top ten toys and we hope that this Christmas more families will be able to reunite to enjoy them together’, said Matthew Redfearn, Toys Category Manager at Amazon.
As part of the launch, Amazon will be going to UK hospitals and cities with its ‘Trending Machine’. This one-of-a-kind gadget dispenses free toys to children passing by. What a way to start the festive period!
