Dec 07 2015
In this post you will find London Mums' Top children's toys for Christmas 2015.  It comes as no surprise that Disney Frozen and Star Wars hold the number one and number two spots, respectively, as the top toy properties this Christmas. Driven by the launch of new products since the beginning of the year, Frozen toy merchandise has more than doubled in sales year-to-date compared to last year with Sing-A-Long Elsa dolls as a big hit. All big retailers have published their top toy trends predictions. But the editorial team at London Mums strongly believe that this Christmas will be dominated by Disney movie-related toys. According to Argos' research almost 90% of children’s toy boxes across the country contain toys influenced by their favourite TV shows and films, with nearly three quarters of kids across the UK (74%) wishing for at least another one underneath the Christmas tree this year.
