The Most Wanted Toys for Christmas 2018

The annual top toys for Christmas list was announced yesterday, including LEGO, slime, Barbie, pooping unicorns, L.O.L. Surprise, Paw Patrol and even a new version of Monopoly.  Take a look at the list below for our pick of the toys retailers predict will be the top toys for Christmas, and a few more of our top choices too.

What will be top of your children's wish lists?

Complete with a new Barbie doll, cooking dough and utensils, this toy will keep kids busy for ages.  The oven and stove have working lights and make real cooking sounds as Barbie whips up dinner using the five colours of dough provided.  She even has her best apron on!

This cute little AI robot has a BIG personality.  Ready to play straight out of the box he will scan one of the 10 cards supplied and learn how to play games with you.  He can do tricks and even interact with you, plus there are plenty more games to download via the app.

Slime is getting bigger and bigger, or should that be slimier and slimier?  This fun creative set encourages STEM learning skills as kids mix, invent, create and combine slime to make super glitter and rainbow effects, and stretch, squidge and squash to their heart's content.

Remember those cute Fingerlings monkeys last year?  Now they've grown up into ferocious, unpredicatble dino beasts (think Gremlins at night).  The Untamed Jailbreak set features a scary dino to train and untamed dino cage which can capture up to dinos.  Kids will love it, especially if it freaks you out!  Just stay out of the way during training maybe?

This is the big one, part of LEGO's re-launch of the Harry Potter range and sure to be gracing many a wish list (not just the children's!)  It's certainly an impressive set.  The 4-level tower features a movable spiral staircase, potions room, treasure room, and a turret complete with the Mirror of Erised.  The 10 minifigures in the set include Harry, Ron and Hermione, as well as Draco Malfoy, Professor Quirrell/Lord Voldemort, Hagrid and Dumbledore, even a little Hedwig.

Or why not be Harry Potter with the new Harry Potter Wizard Training Wand?  Get ready tto train like a true wizard with this fun wand and spell guide.  There are 11 different spells for kids to learn and the wand recognises movement so knows when children have cast their spells, offering feedback on their moves.  Play alone or with a friend, and there are 3 wands to collect: Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore's Elder Wand, and Lord Voldemort's Wand.

Perfect for any L.O.L. Surprise collector, the Pop Up Store is perfect for transporting, storing and playing with all those cute dolls and their myriad accessories.  Thee play set features a fashion boutique and pizza parlour to visit, and an exclusive doll to collect.  The integral sparkly gold handle and drawers make it both stylish and useful.

  1. How lovely to see Barbie still going strong. Appreciate you sharing the list. Thank you.

  2. These are awesome! I love the T-Rex and the LEGO Hogwarts.

  3. My girl definitely wants all the barbie bits! Plus slime!

  4. It's always fascinating to see the top toys for Christmas every year: I wonder which one will sell out first?

  5. Eddie is a big HP/FB fan. He would love that Lego Hogwarts puzzle, but alas, I'm not buying it for him. I might get a Lego Quidditch set, if I find it at a reduced price tomorrow. We have that HP wand, it is lovely.

  6. My kids would LOVE the robot and the fingerling dinosaur, but they WANT every toy they see on the ads - ads always make toys look better than what they are - I have to explain to them things like " it doesn't really move like that" or " you dont get that background and the real looking grass and water" etc etc

  7. I'd love to be able to buy the big lego sets, but they cost so much!

  8. I think my son would like the robot and my daughter would like the Harry Potter lego and wand. I like the barbie kitchen!!x

  9. Love this guide!! Toys have changed so much over the years! x
