October 05, 2010 01:01 ET Releases Top Ten Christmas Toys Prediction for 2010

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2010) - The top toys on every child's wish list to Santa have been revealed by giving parents a head start on Christmas gift ideas this year. Among the gifts set to be the most sought-after this year are hi-tech gadgets such as robotic hamsters and video cameras, while the more traditional dolls and cars also make an appearance this year.

Zhu Zhu Pets hamsters have already proved hugely popular and the latest Rock Star characters are sure to continue the trend. With fur styled into a Mohican, crazy moves and unique noises, they are just as entertaining as the real rodents but require far less care.

Character toys are another huge trend for 2010 Christmas gift ideas, with the success of Toy Story 3 seeing Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear top the list to be one of the most likely items to fly off the shelves this Christmas time.

Other branded items children are likely to make a song and dance about this year include the X Factor Karaoke Party Pack, to practise vocal skills along to favourite music tracks. Or, another popular item for Christmas lists this year in the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver, ideal for budding time travellers and the Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Ultramatrix, which gives kids the chance to enter the world of extra terrestrials through various lights and sounds.

Old favourites also make an appearance this Christmas with items in the top ten including Lego, dolls and cars. Whilst very much a traditional play item, with many new models on the market for Christmas, choose from a host of new styles to bring delight to every child's Christmas Day.

With the Toy Retailers Association predictions are set to be announced at the end of October, savvy shoppers can make an early start on their Christmas shop by simply clicking online at to pick out items early to avoid disappointment on the big day.
