Juliet Ward, Head of Toy Buying at Argos, said: “Digital entertainment is influencing play more than ever before with popular franchises inspiring toys like the Fisher Price Imaginext Transforming Batmobile and 7” Real Walking Buzz. It’s really exciting to see online video gaming entering the toybox with the Fortnite Battle Bus allowing children to recreate what they see on screen in real-life at home.
“It’s no secret that children love animals and so they continue to heavily influence toy innovations, such as the Cubby Bear and Owleez. And kids and big kids alike won’t be able to resist the delightful Boppi – the world’s first booty shakin’ llama. There are also some really quirky innovations on the list this year, such as the collectable Blume Dolls, which magically sprout out of their flower pots when sprinkled with water.”
