The aim of the survey was to find the industry’s top twenty toys and Lego, the most widely known construction toy, hit the top spot. Praised for both its value for money and creative fun Lego managed to knock top word game Scrabble into second place.
Always ready for any adventure, Action Man hopped in to third spot with outdoor favourite Frisbee taking fourth place and the ever popular property trading game Monopoly in fifth.
