Toys R Us has unveiled its list of the top 20 toys it believes will dominate kids' Christmas lists this year.

The line-up spans from an £8 Minecraft figure to a £400 Crazy Cart, with tech toys "taking a lead" this Christmas.

“Toys with a technology base appear to be taking a lead and are all the rage this year, Cayla, Dino Boomer, MIP and the Digital Birds and cage are full of character, but it’s comforting to see the return of some household favourites including Thomas the Tank and Lego, which are always firm favourites," said Mike Coogan, marketing and eCommerce director for Toys R Us UK.

"As always, movies have had a major influence on the list with Disney Frozen being simply outstanding, Transformers 4 providing great role play toys and the long awaited Disney Infinity Super heroes Marvel characters coming to life in video games. The Crazy Cart is by far and away the most expensive gift but it’s something the whole family can enjoy.

"Overall, we’re thrilled with the diverse offering we’re able to provide our customers this year. At Toys R Us, we want to make shopping as easy and simple for shoppers as possible, it’s a fun season and we’re already experiencing parents taking full advantage of shopping early in store, online, mobile and through our click and collect service."
