From the latest Lego sets and LOL Surprise Dolls to family board games and unicorns galore, we round up the top toys for Christmas 2018 that are sure to put a smile on their face.
It might only be October, but we’re already starting to think about Christmas, and the inevitable Letter to Santa. Thankfully, the retail whizzes have made their predictions on the must-have toys for 2018, and we've picked our favourites from Fenwick, so you can get a head start on shopping and avoid any last minute stress-buying come December.
With the glittery-slime-producing Poopsie Unicorn Surprise topping most of this year's wish lists, closely followed by the colourful Vtech Fantasy Unicorn and numerous other cuddly and electronic unicorn toys, it's no suprise Christmas 2018 is being pegged 'the year of the unicorn'.
But if unicorns aren't really their thing, there's lots of other engaging and interactive options for your kids – from the latest Lego construction sets (we've got our eye on the magical Harry Potter Great Hall) to the next editions of the highly popular LOL Surprise Dolls, and techy robotic toys like the Botley Coding Robot or adorable Mookie Robo Chameleon.
Plus, it's always worth picking up a couple of board games for the whole family to enjoy over the festive period, whether you opt for something new like Hasbro's snack-chomping Chow Crown Game or a modern twist on a much-loved classic with Monopoly: Cheaters Edition.
