Argos has revealed its top toy predictions for Christmas 2016. 

The toys that Argos believes will gracing Christmas lists this year are:

  • Zoomer Chimp (£119.99) - Spin Master
  • Paw Patrol Air Patroller (£39.99) - Spin Master
  • LEGO City Volcano (£79.99) - LEGO
  • VTech Toot-Toot Drivers Goldmine (£52.99) - VTech
  • Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike (£59.99) - Hasbro
  • Tiny Treasures Baby Doll (£39.99) - Chad Valley
  • SelfieMic (£19.99) - Worlds Apart
  • Design a Friend Tiffany (£49.99) - Chad Valley
  • Snuggles My Dream Puppy (£49.99) - Character Options
  • Fisher-Price Codeapillar (£49.99) - Mattel
  • BB-8 (£59.99) - Hasbro

“This year’s list shows just how much toys are evolving – lots of our top toys have their roots in parents’ Christmas past," said Linzi Walker, chief toy buyer for Argos.

"Now they’ve truly moved on, with more sophisticated tech, realistic life-like functions and up-to-date pop culture references. We’ve progressed from the toy caterpillar that toddlers could pull across the floor, to one that starts infants on the road to clever coding. Where once there was a baby doll that simply looked like the real thing, we now have one that smells as sweet as a newborn. And while past festivities might have featured a karaoke machine, 2016’s budding Beliebers will be making and sharing their own pop videos with a SelfieMic.

“With cross-generation appeal toys from LEGO, Nerf and Star Wars, households are expected to be lively and fun across the UK this Christmas.”

All toys will be available to buy via www.argos.co.uk from July 2016 onwards.
