The website anticipates five best-sellers ahead of the festive period.
Publish date:

The online-only retailer is the latest to release a list of Christmas picks, Pocket-lint reports.

Amazon is expecting the video game Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, with its integrated collectable toy line, to be a success. Activision has said that Skylanders will be sold in both toy and video game shops.

Mattel's Dance Star Mickey makes another Christmas list appearance, having also been named in the Hamley’s Christmas toys list. Mickey claps his hands, does the 'robot' and can also moonwalk. Check out the viral dance-off video.

Also on the list is Mookie’s Lunar Buggy, a colourfully lit R/C car that can do flips, and Hornby’s Cars 2 Scalextric Start, the package which includes everything needed to get started on Christmas day.

Last up is Berg's Jeep Wrangler Go Kart. Retailing at around £700, it's a man-sized pedal-powered kart equipped with off road wheels and a spare tyre. Kids' versions are also available.
