So there you have the top toys for this year.....Are any of these on your children's Christmas list?


  1. I'm so excited for Christmas but still got another birthday to sort out before then! Shame my girls are older as that little vanity set is just too cute!

    1. My eldests birthday was a few weeks ago and have no more I really have to buy for so it's' all about Christmas now. x

  2. That is one of the things I really miss about Christmas now that my kids are older. There are very few, if any, toys on the Christmas lists. Mostly clothing and technology and sporting equipment. The days of going to the toy store and imagining their delight on Christmas morning just don't last long enough! :) Enjoy your fun!!

    1. My eldest is starting to just want clothes & electronics.....I will miss buying toys when my youngest is older :(

  3. I love Christmas so I can play with all the new toys too! They have some great ones around this year, Frozen toys have to be the best! I LOVE that film!

    1. I can see a lot of Frozen goodies appearing in our house on Christmas day x

  4. Don't tell LB but we have bought Teksta (the dog) for her for Xmas and she has got her eye on the Doh Vinci kits. I can't believe it's only 3 months until Xmas. We still have Curly's birthday to go and then we can start thinking about Xmas properly. Happy shopping :)

    1. Ohh fantastic....I think we may be getting my youngest the Teksta dinosaur.....The Doh Vinci kits look fab don't they x

  5. Oh my goodness, Christmas!! My son is a bit too old for toys now, its just not the same. I love that Xeno though

    1. I'm dreading my two getting too old for toys....

  6. I like to get my Christmas presents sorted early and I like to be finished with the shopping by the end of November...Don't be overly impressed though it's mainly because I shop online and I like to know that the items will get here on time. We bought the children's main presents back in July when we saw what they wanted on special!

    I think my favourites out of your selections has to be the Xeno soft toy and the Vanity Design Kit, although I don't think that young girls should be worrying about there looks I like the fact they can tittivate the vanity how they like mking it a fun item to own...And not overly priced either!

    1. Wow! Well done you!! Very organised!!
