Stuck on what to get your little ones this Christmas? Well, there’s no need to panic as the finest toy shop in the world, Hamleys, has made your lives a lot easier by releasing its predictions on the Top 10 Toys for Christmas! Even better, all the toys will be available to buy in the Hamleys store at intu Lakeside which can be found on Level One.
Old favourites such as Hot Wheels, Fisher Price, Lego and Sylvanian Families make it into the mix of favourites along with new on-trend toys and great prices.
One toy which is sure to be a hit on the playground is Star Wars’ new Quadcopters, which take laser battles into a new league! The Quadcopter retails at £199 and will be available to buy in store. Or why not keep up appearances with BMW’s Mini Beechcomber, a fully licensed electronic car for ages 3-8 built to live up to its ‘grown-up equivalent’. You can even plug your MP3 into the car, making it a perfect and stylish gift for your kids this Christmas.
Let’s not forget Pokemon Go! The new game has gained traction with both adults and children. While the older fans may have first fallen in love with games like Pokemon Gold Version on GBC, which you can still find online, the game has found new life and a new generation of fans through the augmented reality app, Pokemon Go. The iconic brand has released a range of collectables available to buy at Hamleys, intu Lakeside, such as pokeballs and soft toys, which are perfect for the children, or man-children, in your life. The gifts start at £4 so could be perfect stocking fillers this Christmas. If you want to add to your pokemon-themed gifts, why not check out these cute pokemon onesies to comfortably lounge around in on Christmas day; perfect for Pikachu lovers!
Hamleys favourites list also focuses on games that can be enjoyed by all ages. Pieface was a huge hit this year and as a result, Hasbro has made a sequel called ‘Pieface Showdown’ re-inventing the original fun of the game. The game retails at £25 in Hamleys and according to experts should definitely be on your kid’s lists this year.
