Jetpack Buzz Lightyear tops the hit list, while other toys tipped for the top include the Sylvanian Families Regency Hotel, Lego City Fire Station and Scalextric Micro Maximum Mayhem.

Matthew Hardcastle, brand director for Woolworths.co.uk commented: "With the return of Toy Story this summer, the Jetpack Buzz Lightyear is this year’s hottest prediction. Buzz is the superhero of the moment and is expected to stick around for infinity and beyond! We are advising parents to shop early especially if their child is expecting the Jetpack Buzz Lightyear.

"Although we aim to meet the high demand, the popularity of this particular toy may mean that we see it fly off the shelves with the same excitement as the Go Go Hamsters last Christmas."
