For little kids, there are several popular fun and interactive toys to choose from this Christmas. You can’t go wrong with Paw Patrol and this Christmas the Paw Patrol Sea Patroller Vehicle is one of this year’s must-have toys, so put it on your list along with the Paw Patrol My Size Lookout Tower.

If your kids aren’t into Paw Patrol, there are other playsets that are predicted to be popular this year and may prove more enticing to your children. There is the Enchantimals Playhouse Panda Set, where your children’s imagines can run wild in the magical and enchanted world of Enchantimals. For those looking for more action and adventure fighting bad guys, look out for the PJ Masks Headquarters Playset.

For active children, this year the Laser X and Nerf Nitro Longshot Smash are sure to be on the top of their Christmas wish list. Why not treat a little one to one of these? You’ll be encouraging excursions outdoors and away from the television, and help them release some of their energy too.

For the Star Wars lovers out there, the Star Wars: BB-8 for LEGO will not only be a firm favourite among their gifts, but will also encourage creativity and imagination as they build BB-8 with their own two hands. And it might tempt some of the adults to get involved in the fun too.

If your kids have been asking for a pet, but your budget or home situation won’t allow it, the FurReal Roarin’ Tyler could be their animal companion. An animated toy, it moves and makes animal noises, just make sure you have the batteries to power it on Christmas Day, or you may face some disappointed kids when their tiger won’t roar.

And for fun that the whole family can get involved in, Toilet Trouble and The Original Stretch Armstrong are tipped to be popular buys this festive season.
