Tesco has named the 12 toys it expects to top children's Christmas lists this year.

The supermarket believes tablets such as the LeapFrog LeapPad2 and the VTech Innotab 2 will perform strongly, as well as Moshi Monsters, Furby and many more.

John Stanhope, toys category manager for Tesco, said: “It’s no surprise that technology is at the top of the list - the LeapPad and Innotab are like kids’ versions of the tablet computers that many parents will be hoping to find under the Christmas tree.

"But it’s great to see some classic toys on the list too, such as Barbie and Monopoly, which bring families together. We work hard to make sure our Christmas toys offer parents something to suit all ages and budgets.”

Tesco's top 12 Christmas toys are as follows:

1. LeapFrog LeapPad2 - Leapfrog
2. Barbie Puppy Play Park - Mattel
3. Vtech Innotab 2- Vtech
4. Moshi Monsters My Moshi Home - Vivid
