Top 20 Hottest Toys for This Christmas
So here is it, your top 20 toys for this Christmas. There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re looking for top Christmas toys for girls or top toys for kids of all ages…
20) Leapfrog Magic Adventures Globe - £60
Any sort of globe makes for a fantastic Christmas present, but this one goes even further. Its amazing interactive features means you can tap anywhere with the stylus pen provided and it will tell you all sorts of facts about that location. It also has an inbuilt screen where you can watch videos and animations, and your kids can take part in suggested activities.
19) Peppa Pig Peppa’s Clever Car - £30
Is a toy gift guide ever really complete without something from Peppa Pig? No, it is not. You child will first need to match up all the colours, and then the car is ready to go. It has obstacle avoidance tech installed so can swerve if something is in its way, along with bump avoiding sensors so it doesn’t upend. Loads of fun if your child isn’t quite ready for a remote-controlled car just yet.
18) Tobi Robot Kids Smart Watch - £50
Thanks to this amazing product, there’s no reason why every member of the family can’t have their very own smart watch. And this one even has its own robot personality, and this alone makes it one of the hottest toys for Christmas 2020 in our humble opinion. It has two cameras covering the all-essential selfies and videos, plus a stopwatch, pedometer and timer. And it will even add stickers to all the photos for you.
17) Pets Alive Fifi the Flossing Sloth - £20
No, this isn’t a sloth that has an interest in dental care, but rather one that loves to do the famous dance move. A great robotic pet that shakes its booty to three different songs whilst being incredibly cute at the same time.
16) Power Treads - £25
Way more exciting than most toy vehicles and tracks, Power Treads can flip and rip all over your house and you can create thousands of different courses for them. We reckon these will be one of the top Christmas toys for boys in 2020. Or indeed, for any girls who love cars too.
15) Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Luigi Edition Switch Game - £99.99
Essentially two types of game in one, this allows you to set up your own kart at home, and then see its actions replicated on the Nintendo Switch game. And it works the other way around too. For example, if something happens in the game, then your real-life Mario Kart will respond. So if you pick up a Mushroom on screen, the kart will pick up speed in your living room! But when it comes to saving, you can use our Argos Nintendo Switch discount code to access the current special offers. Buy the Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Luigi Edition Game and then save £5 on the Nintendo Joy-Con Wheel, or add a selected wheel for half price.
14) Present Pets Fancy - £50
The very special thing about these particular pups is that they can unbox themselves! All your kids need to do is pull the gift tag, then just stand back and the puppy does the rest. And once they are out, they have more than 100 sounds and movements to provide hours of fun.
13) Little Tykes First Washer Dryer Playset - £50
Now, you may well have bought an Argos washer dryer in the past, but this Christmas, we can save you money on a very different type of appliance. Technically, this could be probably be classed as the cheapest washing machine in Argos, but we’re not sure it would cope with a standard family load. Instead, just let it entertain your little ones before they realise that doing the laundry isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! And one of the best things about this particular toy is that it’s currently available on a multibuy special offer. Use our Argo toy promo code to purchase it as part of their 2 for £75 deal that is valid with selected Little Tykes Roleplay Toys.
12) Poopsie Dancing Unicorn - £35
2020 could certainly do with a few more dancing unicorns to brighten things up a bit, so why not treat your kids to this fun toy? As you might have already guessed she does enjoy dancing, but she also quite enjoys singing too. And you children can give her a makeover thanks to the hairbrush and outfit that’s also included.
11) Hatchimals Pixies Crystal Flyers - £35
Remember Hatchimals? They’ve been very popular for the last couple of years and now this new edition goes one step further. With each Crystal Flyer getting airborne once they hatch, we predict these are going to be one of the top Christmas toys for 5 year olds this year.
10) LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig Display Model with Moving Wings - £35
You wouldn’t have thought they could come up with any more types of Harry Potter LEGO, but this innovative kit will not only provide hours of fun but it also looks suitably dramatic. Your kids can build their own Hedwig complete with a ‘flying’ wings mechanism, and it also comes with mini Harry and Hedwig figures too.
9) Squeakee the Balloon Dog - £60
No, this does not involve paying good money for a basic balloon toy. Squeakee is a special sort of balloon toy. In fact, he’s not really a balloon at all. This state of the art interactive dog does lots of different tricks and has 60 sounds and movements. He even loves belly rubs! And you can also ‘deflate’ him when he (or you) needs a rest.
8) Vtech Kidi Zoom Studio - £50
Gone are the days when kids would be satisfied with their own camera. Now, it’s all about giving them their own portable studio, and all in a handy compact package. The camera and tripod kit allows them to create their own special green screen effects, and also include fun games too.
7) Laser Battle Hunters Vehicle - £60
Although it could be described as one of this years top Christmas toys for boys, we all know remote controlled cars can be enjoyed by absolutely anyone. Especially these ones from Laser Battle that use state of the art controls and come as pair so you can battle and chase your opponent.
6) Monopoly for Sore Losers - £18
We all love a bit of Monopoly, and it’s consistently one of the top Christmas toys each year. But one of the issues that often arises is that is can get a bit too competitive. So what if we told you there was a way of turning the whole thing on its head? Yes, the whole point of Monopoly for Sore Losers is you have do all the things you usually avoid – going to jail, paying lots of rent and ending up bankrupt. The perfect present for those who always end up beholden to the banker!
5) Tomy Screwball Scramble Level 2 Game – was £23, now £20
Parents and kids alike will be familiar with the classic Screwball Scramble, and this is even bigger and better. It can be played on its own or attached to the original Screwball Scramble set for an even bigger challenge. Or why not hook it up to your phone for a new way to play? And as you can see, this is currently on promotion with our Argos discount code for games, getting you a bit of extra money off.
4) LEGO Super Mario Adventures Starter Course - £50
What is better than playing Super Mario? Making a real life LEGO version of course! This comes complete with an interactive Mario figure that has over 100 instant reactions. And if you want to recreate the video game experience even more, the speaker will play you classic music and sounds from the original game. If you order this toy before 17th November 2020, you can also take advantage of a special offer available with our Argos LEGO voucher code. Either claim a free gift or buy with other selected toys to save money as a bundle purchase.
3) LOL Surprise! OMG Remix Kitty K Fashion Doll - £40
This company created one of the top Christmas toys in 2019 and they continue their quest for world toy domination in 2020. You kids will need to help out the doll because their clothes and styles got remixed. And they even come with their own record and record player so you can enjoy a surprise song.
2) Little Live Gotta Go Flamingo - £33
As any parent knows, a lot of young children are obsessed with toilet habits and there is now an increasing number of toys available that reflect this. Because what kid wouldn’t find a pooping flamingo funny? And to top it all off, he’ll sing a song about it too.
1) Star Wars Mandalorian The Child Animatronic Edition - £45
Otherwise known as ‘Baby Yoda’, it shouldn’t really come as any surprise whatsoever that this is the top of the list for this year. The character that launched a thousand memes is now available in animatronic form and comes with 25 sound and motion combinations. And let’s face it, this toy is not just for kids, but many, many adults out there too.
What Toys Can I Buy with a £200 Budget?
In an ideal world, we’d all like to treat our kids to every single one of these top toys in 2020. But realistically, we need to be a bit more selective. Of course, what you choose to buy will very much depend on your kids, how old they are and what they like. But we’ve put together our pick of the hottest toys this year for Christmas from the list above, covering all ages:
- Power Treads - £25
- Leapfrog Magic Adventures Globe - £60
