From Star Wars and PAW Patrol to LOL Surprise and Hatchimals: Check out the full Dream Toys listing

Decided by a panel of leading toy retailers, The Toy Retailers Association’s DreamToys list is recognised as the UK’s most accurate predictive list available, providing consumers with expert insight into what will be the most popular toys this Christmas.

My First Drone, Fidget Cubes, JoJo Siwa Singing JoJo doll and a Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker are just some of the toys to make up this year’s DreamToys list.

Decided by a panel of leading toy retailers, The Toy Retailers Association’s DreamToys list is recognised as the UK’s most accurate predictive list available, providing consumers with expert insight into what will be the most popular toys this Christmas.

“From licensing heroes such as Star Wars and PAW Patrol to collectable favourites like Shopkins and LOL, this year’s Dream Toys list represents a real sense of fun, excitement and imagination,” said Gary Grant, chair of the Dream Toys selection committee.

“The list is a diverse mix of quality toys which embody the wonder and surprise of Christmas time, with a present to suit every budget.”

According to the industry analysts, NPD, British kids aged up to 11 will receive on average 11 toys for Christmas, worth collectively £121. It’s a figure that is helping the British toy market hold its position as the largest market in Europe and the fourth biggest worldwide.

“All year, affordable collectables have topped the best-seller lists, with seven out of the top ten best-selling toys since the beginning of 2017 retailing under £10,” said Frederique Tutt, global industry analyst for the NPD Group’s toy division.

“As we approach Christmas, we are seeing bigger toys continuing to promote traditional play patterns, often with a twist, with some ranges adopting an ‘unboxing’ element inspired by social media such as LOL or Hatchimals, or some level of interactivity such as Fingerlings or FurReal’s Roarin’ Tyler.”
