This year, the UK store has handpicked toys which children can learn though and enhance communications skill after children this year having to adapt to playing in smaller groups and with siblings. With a massive 106% increase in sales of electronic toys this year, JL & Partners have chosen products which they feel will help parents keep their little ones entertained whilst also learning new skills and tools.
Last year’s JL top toys included a bigger range of wooden toys such as 50-piece wooden train set and were announced at the end of August, so this year hot-picks are slightly later than usual for the retailer and certainly later than Argos who has already announced its predictions.
Rachael Larkman, Partner & Toy Buyer said; “This year has been incredibly different for all of us and we’ve seen a change in the way parents have been purchasing toys for their children. They’re thinking of ways that will help their children further their learning through play. That’s why we believe the Botley 2.0 (that teaches children to code) will be a popular choice.
We’ve also seen a nod to nostalgia with traditional board games making a comeback such as Monopoly proving particularly popular as families make time to play together.
We’re extremely excited to launch the Micro Eco Scooter, made out of recycled fishing nets. We have seen incredible demand for outdoor games during lockdown and believe this trend will continue through to next year.”
This year’s toys range from £11.99 to £149.95 however if you were ready to buy the whole lot, this would cost £601.09 which is exactly £30 less expensive than last years bundle.
