From Christmas stocking fillers that won’t break the budget to more bigger and expensive ones, the list includes board games, LEGO, dolls, action figurines, and even a life-size ride-on car. 

According to the retailer, this year’s pick is a mixture of toys that combine interactive play, pop culture, and pieces that stimulate the imagination.

Toys R Us Marketing Manager Catherine Jacoby told Business Insider: “Social consciousness, post-pandemic living, nostalgia, and consumers looking for value have all impacted this year’s toy trends.

“From active and sensory play to play sets featuring kids’ favourite characters, [the] top toy list encourages grownups to wrap up an extra-special gift that sparks hours of imaginative play and years of memories”.
