Looking for the perfect gift for your little one? Look no further! Here are our top picks.
If there was a character who could act as mascot for 2020, it would be Baby Yoda — otherwise known as The Child. This adorable creature hit our screens in The Mandalorian, and has since taken the world by storm. So it’s no surprise that the Animatronic Baby Yoda that comes complete with over 25 sounds and motion combinations is proving to be one of the year’s most popular toys.
Paw Patrol Dino Rescue
Paw Patrol is one of the most popular franchises among young children, as fans are able to pick their favourite four-legged hero from the gang. The Dino Rescue set takes the team to prehistoric times, coming complete with a cool motorised vehicle, a T-Rex and a figure of fan favourite: Chase.
Diamond Painting Kits
The best presents are the ones that encourage your little ones to get creative. This is exactly what diamond painting kits do, giving your child the challenge of completing a beautiful picture all their own. The end result will be a stunning and unique painting that really shines, and they can then hang it up or display it pride of place.
Diamond painting kits are fun, creative and give your child a sense of accomplishment and pride which is truly priceless.
Speaking of getting creative, if you feel like you have a future media star in your family, the Vtech KidiZoom is a fantastic creator cam that includes an HD video recorder, 20 virtual backgrounds, a mini tripod and handle, and a handy wrist strap.
Barbie’s Food Truck
Sit down Richard Branson, step aside Jeff Bezos — Barbie is undoubtedly the world’s greatest entrepreneur.
By this point in time Barbie has had her finger in pretty much every career pie, and clearly she shows no signs of slowing down. In her latest guise, the iconic doll takes the role of cuisine-savvy businesswoman running her own food truck. The truck itself comes with over 30 accessories, from fryers and blenders to menu boards, food and serving trays. There is even seating for customers included, so all your little one’s toys can pay a visit.
Squeakee the Balloon Dog
Balloon animals are fun, but sadly they don’t last long. Or at least they didn’t, until the arrival of Squeakee the Balloon Dog. This crimson canine comes with many interactive features, including training and feeding. He can also be inflated, and can make over 60 dog-like sounds and movements. Squeakee is sure to be your household’s most unusual new pet.
Playmobil Back to the Future DeLorean
The ‘future’ of the Back to the Future franchise may now technically be in the past, but that doesn’t stop the love for the franchise living on in today’s youths. The PlayMobil Back to the Future DeLorean is one of the hottest toys of the moment.
Present Pets Fancy Puppy Interactive Toy
If Squeakee the Dog isn’t your thing, perhaps your little one would prefer the soft and cuddle friends offered by Present Pets. These interactive animals are both cute and lively, and are so realistic that they will actually enthusiastically unbox themselves!
LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian Starship Toy
The Mandalorian has breathed new life into the Star Wars franchise, and clearly this is reflected in this year’s top toy choices. This LEGO transport shuttle for children aged 10 and up comes complete with three mini figures, including the iconic Baby Yoda himself. Plus, your little one can enjoy the process of building the ship themselves!
UNO and other classic board games
We might think of board games like Monopoly and Cluedo as old hat, but lots of today’s kids haven’t had the opportunity to experience their fun for themselves. UNO is a great example of this. The iconic fun and fast paced card game is a great way to bring the household together for a spot of friendly competition.
