Juliet Ward, Head of Toy Buying at Argos, said:

“With so much time spent inside during lockdown, the nation has rekindled its love for toys, turning to them now more than ever to keep themselves entertained during what has been a difficult time for many. This year’s top toys list offers a huge variety of new products, ranging from toys inspired by the biggest TV and gaming franchises to bizarre – but crucially, fun – pooping animals.

“When we craft the list of our top toy predictions for the year, we always try to accurately gauge the ‘toy crazes’ that are set to make thousands of wish lists. This year it’s heartening to see so many toys that will encourage families to spend time together, whether that’s putting together a LEGO Lamborghini or reminiscing over the Mario games of the 80s and 90s.”

Toyologist Peter Jenkinson said: “Argos’s predictions for the top toys this Christmas are based on almost 50 years of experience and expertise in what parents buy for their children, offering not just a shopping list, but an insight into shopper behaviour and how the world around us affects what we buy.

“You can see from the presence of an influencer studio kit and the animatronic doll that the lockdown has had a profound effect on what parents are set to purchase this year, while there are also toys – such as the LEGO Technic Lamborghini – that necessitate parents investing time in building the toy and playing alongside their children.

“This year, children have spent much of their time locked away at home, unable to visit friends their own age and having birthday parties over Zoom. It’s meant a great deal of time has been spent with their immediate family, and while this is a good thing, the toy list also includes products that allow children to get back to simply being a kid – whether that’s a dancing unicorn or a flamingo that chirps about going to the toilet.”

Last year Argos announced the top toys in June.
