“This year’s top toys list is a fantastic blend, as toymakers evolve childhood favourites alongside the introduction of newer and more technology-led gifts,” said Linzi Walker, chief toy buyer for Argos.

“Dolls will have made Christmas memories for many children and this year is no different. Luvabella is an incredibly lifelike doll, with advanced animated features enabling it to drink milk from a bottle and fall asleep just as a real little one would. And Chad Valley has produced gorgeous twins as an extension of its authentic Tiny Treasures Baby Doll range.

“There are many opportunities for children and parents alike to embrace user-friendly technology this Christmas. LEGO Boost provides everything needed for children to make five different LEGO models that can then be coded using a free app. The Fisher- Price Teach n Tag Movi is an interactive play buddy that helps kids learn on the go. And music lovers will love SoundMoovz, an exciting wearable tech toy for all ages where players can create their own beats and rhythms as they move by using Bluetooth-connected bands on their ankles or wrists.

“Popular on-screen toys are also set to feature, with appearances from Disney’s Cars 3 Lightning McQueen, PJ Masks Headquarter Playset, the Paw Patrol Sea Patroller alongside RC Sqweeks from Transformers: The Last Knight.”
