It’s that time of year again when parents are pulling their hair out to find the best toy gifts for kids to put under the tree this year.
As always Dream Toys have come to the rescue with their top toy ideas for Christmas for kids! The toy industry makes £1billion from toy sales at Christmas, so they definitely know what works for kids.
Amazingly 30% of the money that the toy industry makes within the year is made in the last few months of the year.
Toys really do make Christmas tick for kids! 🎄
And dents a massive hole in parents wallets as well!
But what should we be spending our hard earn cash on this year to help make the kids’ faces light up on Christmas Day?
Barbie Dreamplane Playset – Mattel – £79.99
This Barbie Playset is a wonderful way to transport your kids back to your own childhood with the fantastic iconic Barbie doll that will give hours of playtime to your kids. It’s one of the best toy gifts out there right now.
Lots of play value in this one, and of course, lots of gorgeous pink too!
Blume Dolls – Skyrocket – £9.99
A step into the world of collectables, where a little bit of water can create a whole lotta surprise for your kids. Blume dolls are hidden inside a flower pot, and anything that grows is a total surprise for the kids. There are 22 to collect, and each flower pot comes with 10+ surprises, including a mini friend, sticker set, and a secret playset.
Frozen 2 ‘Into the Unknown” Elsa Doll – Jakks Pacific – £39.99
Of course there HAD to be something within the list inspired by the much anticipated Frozen 2 movie. This Elsa doll comes dressed in a gorgeous sparkly purple outfit ( a Nightgown apparently!), and is able to say 14 phrases from the film.
She also sings Elsa’s powerful song for you as well; just in case you need to hear it again!
Harry Potter Knight Bus – LEGO – £34.99
Dream Toys lists are not complete without LEGO. And last year, the Harry Potter theme was strong within the toy list.
This year is the same with the wonderful purple Knight Bus making an appearance within the best toy gifts for kids this Christmas.
We LOVE the Knight Bus from the books, and, as always, LEGO have faithfully created a wonderful version for kids to build and enjoy on Christmas Day.
This is amazing for recreating some of the fabulous scenes from the book and includes Harry Potter’s trunk, as well as three mini figures.
L.O.L. Surprise! 2-in-1 Glamper – MGA Entertainment – £99.99
This is a much higher price point that we are used to in the LOL Surprise! range; and that is because its the first ever vehicle within the collectables world.
There are a staggering 55 surprises to unbox in the toy, and it comes with10 hangout areas, as well as an exclusive doll. There is a swimming pool, a slide, and even a fashion runway.
So the set really does put the Glam in Glamping!
Nerf Elite Fornite SP-L – Hasbro – £19.99
Nerf never fails to appeal to kids and Christmas, and this time we have both Nerf and Fornite together in one with this nerf-tastic toy gun.
This toy replicates the game, with colours from the video environment, and a little bit more flexibility in the gun. The barrel is detachable, so there are a number of different ways to use it this time around.
Attach the barrel for longer distance, and remove it if you are playing indoors or in a smaller area.
The gun itself comes with 6 darts, and has a 3-dart capacity, so you can get a few rounds off at once for a better chance of winning!
Owleez – Spin Master Toys – £49.99
This is a bit of a fabulous addition to any kids toy gifts – a pet that you can teach how to fly. What child wouldn’t want to own their very own pet owl.
In fact – maybe I’ll ask for one too?!?
She gets better as you teach her indoors to take flight from her little nest. She has over 100 sounds and lights as well, so she isn’t just a cute little bundle; she’ll interact with the kids too.
She let’s you know how she is feeling through her eye colour, and likes to be petted, rocked, tickled and loved. She’s a bundle of cuteness in fact!
AW Patrol Mighty Pups Super PAWs Mighty Jet Command Centre – Spin Master Toys – £59.99
Paw Patrol is a massive franchise, and so it is no surprise to see them back in the list of Dream Toys for 2019.
This is a 2-in-1 set that changes from a jet into a command centre for the Paw Patrol pups to help save the day from!
It comes with a Mighty Ryder figure, an exclusive one, but the other vehicles and characters for the centre are sold separately.
Peppa Pig Peppa’s Stage Playset – Character Options – £59.99
This playset includes Peppa and George figures so the kids can reteract their favourite scenes from one of THE mot popular kids shows EVER.
The set includes a stage sound box with loads of different effects for everyone to get stuck in to, as well as theatre seating.
There are double sided backdrop cards to enable the kids to create six different scenes as well.
If you want a little extra; slide in your tablet at the back, and add that instant cinema feel to it all.
Rizmo – Tomy – £59.99
Rizmo LOVES music, and he’s come from a long way away to share that with everyone. He grows as he is played with, and he has 7 fun games to play.
His eye colour changes so you know what game you are going to be playing with him.
He is able to remember some songs forever too – and if you need cheering up, he can then play them back.
Ryan’s World Super Surprise Safe – Flair Leisure Products – £44.99
Bring unboxing fun from Ryan’s World to your kids with this surprise safe playset.
Use the key to discover cool toys inspired by Ryan’s World inside.
Plenty for the kids to push, smash, play with, and generally have a whole lot of fun with.
Toy Story 4 True Talkers – Mattel – £17.99
Our list completes with another Disney classic, Toy Story.
These are a great price point for toy story fans, coming in at under £20 for a talking character figure. And it includes Forky as well as Woddy, Jess, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep, Jessie and Rex.
Perhaps if the kids have been really good this year, you can collect them all! 😂
