Top Christmas Toys 2017

The gifts your little one may want this Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….and the most expensive.

With Christmas only around the corner, (-353 days to be precise) we have compiled a ‘most wanted’ toys list. Not only have we done that, but we have scoured the internet to find the best prices. As much as we all love Christmas, it’s much more than how much money you spend and we mustn’t lose sight of the actual meaning – more presence than presents so, with that in mind, don’t get sucked into buying willy nilly.


Top toy #1: Luvabella Doll (age 3+) £99.99 Available here at Smyths Toys

The early Christmas toy buzz has tipped this Luvabella doll to be the new ‘Hatchimal of 2017’. The rush for the Hatchimal last year was somewhat stressful, if not amusing, and we are sure there will be many parents around the country keen to avoid getting caught up in a repeat of last year’s ‘hatching madness’. What’s all the fuss about? Well, this lifelike Luvabella Doll responds affectionately to love, changing her expression just like a real baby and the unique selling point on this doll is the way she interactively responds. Tickle her tummy and she giggles, give her a bottle and she will “drink”.
