Top 10 Christmas Toys For 2021
|Here are the hottest toys of the 2021 holiday season.|
If you have a little one in your life and aren't too sure what to get them this year, we've spoken to top industry experts to find the toys every child will want this Christmas.
"Some of the top toy trends we’re seeing for 2021 are those tied into films, with the lack of new releases last year meaning we saw very little along these lines in 2020," says Peter Jenkinson, a UK-leading toy expert who regularly features on popular television programmes. "This year, we’ll have a new Ghostbuster film, Paw Patrol hitting the big screen and a Top Gun movie, too."
"There are lots of brands we’re excited about for Christmas 2021," says Gary Grant, Founder and Executive Chairman of toy shop The Entertainer. "This includes Paw Patrol, following the movie this summer. Other popular brands will include CoComelon (based on the popular children's TV show), Super Mario, L.O.L. Surprise! (mini baby dolls), Barbie and Bluey (another popular kids TV series)."
We can also expect people of all ages to fall in love with toys and games for Christmas 2021. "This year we’ve seen a huge surge in the popularity of traditional toys and games that can be enjoyed by the whole family," says Rachael Larkman, Toy Buyer at John Lewis. "For example, sales of construction toys and puzzles such as Lego have risen 50% in the last 12 months, and we predict this trend will continue for Christmas 2021."
Barbie Dreamtopia Colour Change Mermaid
Barbie is always a popular choice. This particular one is a mermaid with rainbow hair and a colour-changing tail - dip her into hot water and her stripy tail fades to pastel shades, pop her in an ice-cold bath, and it returns to its vibrant original. Oh - and it's available in two different skin tones, which is certainly a step in the right direction for diversity.
Bluey Family Home Playset
Bluey, for those who don't know, is from the animated TV series on CBeebies and Disney+ and here, the Blue Heeler pup comes complete with his own home. Open-fronted, with 10 accessories like chairs and beds, little ones can play out scenes inside the house. The bottom half also shuts up, which will help with tidying up and keeping the mess at bay.
