Toddler news Christmas Christmas gift guides Must-have toys for Christmas from the biggest sellers We take a look at the toys Argos, Amazon, Asda, Toys 'R' Us, Hamleys, The Entertainer and Lego are predicting will sell out by December 2016 1 of Ad break The biggest toy sellers and industry experts have already started announcing their top toy predictions for Christmas 2016. So far, Christmas lists have come from Argos and Amazon, and are sooon to come from Toys 'R' Us, Hamleys, George at Asda, Lego and The Entertainer. No surprises that old classics Star Wars and Lego are on the list, along with newer favourites Paw Patrol and Toot Toot, plus some robotic technology and a selfie stick microphone. Below we have the first top list from Argos, and then click through to see the top retailers' predicted best sellers as they announce them... 11 Top Toys for Christmas 2016 according to Argos: 1. VTech Toot Toot Drivers Goldmine, £52.99Age: 1-5There’s a new playset in the ever-popular Toot Toot collection with VTech launching the Drivers Goldmine. This motorized train chugs around the 32-pieced track and through the mine, collecting objects at the cargo loader. But parents beware: the train's’ journey is also accompanied by 3 songs and 17 melodies, which we know you will love. 2. Paw Patrol Air Patroller, £39.99Age: 3+Courtesy of the popular TV show Paw Patrol, Robopup gets to fly his own jet. The Patroller has real lights and sounds and can transform itself into a helicopter, making it a real nursery boast. 3. Tiny Treasures Baby Doll, £39.99Age: 3+This is a new life-like baby doll from Chad Valley, with apparently baby-soft skin, sleepy eyes, sleek hair and a baby-scented aroma, perhaps reminding even parents of all the best bits of the baby days. 4. Design a friend Tiffany, £49.99Age: 3+The new Tiffany Doll is all glammed up and ready for a fashion show. Her sparkly pink gown is matched with white silk gloves and a pink catwalk and aimed at young fashionistas. 5. BB-8, £49.99Age: 3+The remote-controlled BB-8 is this year's hottest Star Wars toy. It can roll in all directions and makes expressive droid sounds (if droids make expressive noises). This loyal companion could replace the much-loved R2-D2 as the new favourite Star Wars robot. 6. Fisher Price Codeapillar, £49.99Age: 3-6If you see your child as a future coding wiz, then this Codeapillar is the place to start. Helping young children learn and see the fun in computer coding, the toy is made up of 8 segments, which can be mixed around to direct the codeapillar to target discs (which are included in the set). 7. Snuggles my dream puppy, £49.99Age: 4+Dogs may not just be for Christmas, but this life-like puppy has the ability to nod its head, move its stomach while breathing and scrunch up its nose. A great way to bring the happiness of having a pup without the responsibilities. 8. Zoomer Chimp, £119.99Age: 5+This robotic chimp makes a great gift for your own cheeky monkey this Christmas. With over 100 tricks and voice control, this Zoomer chimp laughs at its own burps and farts. Let's just hope that, unlike the chimp, our own kids grow out of this phase. 9. SelfieMic, £19.99Age: 8+If your child dreams of being a pop star then the SelfieMic grants this wish without them having to leave the house. Attached to the microphone is a selfie stick, meaning you can make music videos while confidently singing or even lip-syncing to favourite tunes. 10. Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike, £59.99Age: 8+The new Nerf Gun steps up another level, as it becomes the first Nerf Gun to fire nerf bullets in THREE DIRECTIONS. Yes, just what the world needs. While firing bullets in multiple directions may increase the chance of being on target, it does also increase the chance of hitting a rogue sibling or a passing parent. 11. LEGO City Volcano, £79.99Age: 8-12It couldn't be a Christmas list without Lego, and this year Lego City erupts with mobile operation vehicles, 6 mini-figures and the volcano itself. With 824 individual pieces, this present will be time consuming and may bring you brief peace during the holidays - unless you're on building duty. Now click or swipe to see Amazon's top 10 Christmas toys AmazonThe big retailers all seem to agree that the Code-a-pillar from Fisher-Price and the newest NERF Tri-Strike are the toys ‘Santa’ will be racing to pick up in 2016. But Amazon’s list definitely shows a preference towards techy gifts like smartwatches and action cams for kids. Here’s what they think will sell out this year… Amazon’s top 10 toys 1. VTech Kidizoom DX Smart Watch, £42.99 A wallet-friendly toy with games and activities to keep them occupied, plus the perfect (cost-effective) way to let them copy smartwatch-wearing mum or dad. 2. Fisher-Price Think and Learn Code-a-Pillar Toy, £49.99 Argos rates this one highly, too, so we reckon it’ll be the ultimate must-have this year. Helping young children learn and see the fun in computer coding, the toy is made up of 8 segments, which can be mixed around to direct the code-a-pillar to target discs (which are included in the set). 3. Finding Dory My Friend Dory, £38.61 Christmas isn’t the same without gathering the family around a blub-worthy Disney Pixar film… and since Finding Dory’ll probably be out on DVD by then - why not have Dory watch along, too? 4. NERF N-Strike Modulus B5577 Tri-Strike Blaster, £64.18 Not one, not two, but THREE different kinds of darts in the same blaster… a sure fire way to end up with a foam missile to the head on Christmas afternoon. 5. WowWee CHiP Canine, £199.99 Keen to get a family pet but don’t fancy the mess of a real-life puppy? CHiP the robot pup might be the solution... 6. VTech KidiZoom Action Cam, £35.99 Let your little one capture the magic of Christmas morning (and beyond) with this GoPro-style camera for kids. Perfectly for kids who enjoy action-packed adventures… or fancy themselves as a filmmaker! 7. Anki Overdrive Big Bang Expansion Car Toy, £49.99 For boys and girls who like their toy cars armour-plated, heavyweight - complete with ‘Graviton Core’. 8. Marvel Civil War Blaster Reveal Shield, £19.99 Team Iron Man, look away. Captain America fans, rejoice - you can now practice your moves with this red, white and blue shield to be just like the Marvel superhero. 9. LEGO 70321 Nexo Knights General Magmar Siege Machine Of Doom Construction Set, £25 Who doesn’t love a bit of LEGO on Christmas day? This set (which turns into an awesome, fiery ‘machine of doom’) isn’t very old school - and isn’t for beginners. 10. Sphere SPRK Edition: App-Enabled Ball, £99.99 Can’t get your child off their iPhone? They’ll love this robotic ball, which is powered by a phone app and is designed to inspire all kinds of technical skills. Crafty kids who like to invent will also get a kick out of this bot.
