The Race for this Year's Top Christmas Toy is On

by Roger Jeremies on Sep 1, 2010

With almost half a year left till the Christmas holidays, gift shopping couldn't be further from most parents minds, however this is the time when the larger toy retailers release their annual predictions that depict which toys they believe will be the biggest sellers come the Christmas shopping period. This research is based on a large number of factors, trends and data, and influenced slightly by what they would hope to be selling out of when it comes down to it. This year the London based toy retailer Hamley's was first to publish its research and predictions for what it feels will be the best selling toys this winter. At the top spot is an electronic talking rubbish truck called Stinky the Garbage Truck, Stinky is manufactured by Matchbox and Mattel and is part of their Big Rig Buddies range, the same range that brought Rocky the Robot truck to the market last year. Stinky the Garbage truck is a battery powered toy aimed at young boys and suitable for ages three and upwards, notable features are its interactive elements that respond to light, touch and sound. In second position next to Stinky is an older favourite making a return, with the recent release of the new Toys Story movie the new Buzz Lightyear action figure is set to be a much sought after toy this Christmas. The new Buzz Lightyear toy is very similar in look and style to the older versions that were released in line with the past two films. Buzz is a fully moveable action figure with extendable wings flashing lights and over 100 different catchphrases and noises that come straight from the film recreating a very realistic replica of the action figure featured in the Toy Story movie. The new movie has created a huge buzz around the characters and related toys which is set to build further in the run up to Christmas as the DVD hits shelves later in the year. Other predictions include a talking monkey, called Dave the Funky Monkey, an alien wrist watch from the popular kids TV series Ben 10 ultimate alien and kung zhu pets, a male orientated follow up to last year's popular toy the Zhu Zhu pets. This year's predictions have seen a shift away from more traditional toys like board games, outdoor games and wooden toys towards the more high-tech electronic toys and gadgets, a trend that was mirrored in the late 90's. As with any prediction these are not set in stone and any number of factors could affect which toys are in demand at Christmas time, the race for this year's top Christmas toy is far from over.
