I don’t want to confess how much put we poured into the claw machines at the arcades on Isle of Wight trying to win a ‘Baby Yoda’ (The Child from the Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian)! Alas we never won. He’s so adorable. It’s easy to see why he’s one of the top toys for Christmas, second year running, as revealed by Dream Toys. Also on the list are firm Christmas faves like Monopoly and Lego, but pssst, let me give you the heads up on DreamToys’ Top 12 for 2021.

Frederique Tutt, vice president – global industry expert, toys, The NPD Group commented,
“Brits have continued their love affair with toys this year and sales have been strong. Compared to 2019, pre-COVID, sales are up 9% for the nine months ending September 2021. We expect the final sales quarter of the year to deliver a solid performance despite supply chain challenges. Toy manufacturers and retailers have planned ahead and stocked up to avoid anticipated shortages, so most toy shoppers will be able to get the items they want. But as we always say at the DreamToys event each November, if you know what particular toy the child in your life is dreaming of this Christmas, it is best to buy it now.”
Under the Christmas Tree
We love board games and like many families, during lockdown they kept us entertained and connected. Monopoly is our go to. This year’s next gen game for 2021 is Cash Decoder/Crooked Cash.
