It’s odds-on at 10/11 that Buzz will outsells the other toys from the TRA's Dream Dozen, including VTech's Kidizoom VideoCam at 2/1, Hasbro's Monopoly Revolution at 12/1 and Wowwee's Paper Jamz guitar at 10/1.
However, the toys posing the biggest threat to Buzz’s top spot include Hasbro's FurReal Go Go Walking Pup, which was slashed from 20/1 to 10/1 and its Nerf
n Strike Stampede at 8/1, both of which are proving popular with punters.
Sharon McHugh, spokesperson for Paddy Power told Bettingpro: “Buzz has been a big hitter for more than fifteen years now. Kids just never seem to tire of the space ranger.”
