It might only be September, but Santa is already psyching himself up with his Christmas list.
A welcoming mix of old and new, timeless favourites like LEGO and Thomas the Tank Engine are still holding their own on the top toys to unwrap this Christmas.
Here are the top ten toys to write on your list this Christmas:
Anna’s Frozen Adventure Sleigh Set (€59.99)
The phenomenon that is Disney’s ‘Frozen’ will continue until Christmas, there’s no doubt in that. With Anna’s Frozen Adventure Sleigh you’ll be treated to an incessant soundtrack of ‘Let It Go’ over the festive season.
This is for the mums and dads as much as it is for the kids, Boomer will chase, chomp and roar. Good news for the competitive parents – you can teach him to do new tricks too.
Chatsters Gabby (€74.99)
With over 25 games and activities, Gabby is a guaranteed entertainer – you will only hear from the kids when they’re hungry. Ideal.
Fisher-Price Little People Skyway (€49.99)
For the little ones, this 3-foot tall play set is guaranteed to thrill and is reasonably priced too.
LEGO City Arctic Base Camp 60036 (€84.99)
What would a Santa list be without a LEFO request? This is the ever-popular toy’s latest set and it’s bound to be a hit.
Little Live Pets Bird Cage (€25.99)
A clever alternative to the annual ‘Can we please get a pet?’ request. These toy birds respond to touch, sing and chirp and sing. You can also record your voice and listen to the cheeky birds chat back.
Loom Bands (From €1.50)
They’ve been the obsession of the summer and they’ll be the perfect stocking filler. Loom bands are the latest fad for kids and teens as they have fun creating their own unique friendship bracelets.
Razor Crazy Cart (€499.99)
This one’s for the boisterous kids. Dubbed the ‘most-talked-about electric ride-on to ever hit the UK and Ireland, its unique drifting capability is what has kids hooked. The only downside is it’s on the expensive side of the Santa scale.
