Gary Grant, chairman of the TRA, commented: "This year, the toy industry has turned the latest trends into innovative and creative toys. The top 72 toys really demonstrate how forward thinking and pioneering the toy industry is. The list also reveals a trend towards nostalgic characters and brands which have been updated with a modern twist. Consumers are reverting back to heritage brands which will last longer than the Christmas season".

"With licensed toys combining the fun and familiarity of popular characters as well as collectable, pocket money priced toys making a big comeback this year, we are in for an affordable, family orientated Christmas”.
