Tesco reveals top 10 toys for Christmas thumbnail

Tesco has shared its top toys for Christmas list just a handful of weeks before the UK toy industry unveils its ‘official’ list at the annual DreamToys event in London.

The supermarket’s choices fall largely on the lower end of the price spectrum, with a majority of the toys priced at £35 and under. All the picks are in fact currently part of an up-to-half-price sale that runs until the end of the month.

Top licenses like Toy Story 4, Fortnite and Harry Potter take their spot alongside a selection of surprise collectables from Skyrocket and MGA. Meanwhile Tesco’s own Carousel brand is represented, including a replica Tesco delivery van complete with the green boxes.

Anne Borrett, Tesco’s Toys Category Manager, says: “Our choices, made by Tesco’s team of toy experts, have been carefully considered and based on the type of toys which have been popular throughout the year and which are likely to be on many children’s Dear Santa lists.

“In our top 10 are toys for all budgets, but with more than half of them priced at £30, we think there’ll be something for everyone!”
