Can you believe we are already talking about Christmas?! To be honest, if you are anything like me Christmas and Christmas presents are never far from my mind. We have a huge number of presents to buy for family and friends so I always like to make a head start on my Christmas shopping whenever I can! So knowing what the Top Toys for Christmas 2019 are going to can sometimes be helpful.
Today, to mark 200 days until the big day, Argos have released what they think are going to be the most sought after toys this year.
Over the last few years of running The Little Bargain Hunter, these lists have always turned out to be relatively spot on!
Juliet Ward, head of toy buying at Argos, commented: “Digital entertainment is influencing play more than ever before with popular franchises inspiring toys like the Fisher Price Imaginext Transforming Batmobile and 7” Real Walking Buzz.
It’s really exciting to see online video gaming entering the toybox with the Fortnite Battle Bus allowing children to recreate what they see on screen in real-life at home.
It’s no secret that children love animals and so they continue to heavily influence toy innovations, such as the Cubby Bear and Owleez. And kids and big kids alike won’t be able to resist the delightful Boppi – the world’s first booty shakin’ llama.
There are also some really quirky innovations on the list this year, such as the collectable Blume Dolls, which magically sprout out of their flowerpots when sprinkled with water.”
Research conducted by Argos has revealed a quarter of UK shoppers have already started Christmas shopping, while 10% have already finished it! The research also revealed that 32% of shoppers expect to spend more on gifts this year, with parents expected to spend an average of £273 on presents for their children.
So what are the Top Toys for Christmas 2019?
