Harry Boughton, Toy Buyer, at John Lewis comments: “We’re seeing growing demand for toys which encourage kids to get active, whether it’s a scooter to ride to school, or playing Nerf Laser tag in the garden. Parents are telling us that they want to buy toys which encourage their children to spend less time looking at a screen, and more time playing games that get them moving.

“I predict the pocket sized addictive I-Top will be this year’s most popular playground toy. It’s an electronic take on the classic spinning top and displays the number of revolutions, allowing players to keep track of their scores.”
