Smyths Toys Superstores has named its top toys for Christmas 2019, a list of 10 playthings rooted firmly in in the unboxing trend, top licenses and big brand names.
Sinead Byrne, joint Head of Marketing at Smyths Toys, says the decision-making process was “really difficult” this year due to the volume of “fantastic new toys” that have launched over the past 12 months.
“Forky, Cubby and Boppi have stolen our hearts this year, and we are super excited for the Frozen Arendelle Castle that has just launched,” she adds. “Toys are travelling in style with the LOL! Glamper, Barbie Dream Plane and Paw Patrol Jet. All guaranteed to entertain kids this Christmas.”
