    Star Wars Talking Chewbacca Plush

    Everybody loves Star Wars. In fact, we’re convinced that anyone who says they don’t like Star Wars still, secretly, likes Star Wars… It’s human nature, people – embrace it.

    And with that in mind, this Christmas toy is, fittingly, one of Star Wars’ most beloved characters: the crossbow-shooting furball himself, Chewbacca.

    Presented as a plush, this soft toy won’t break, so don’t worry about having to deal with tears and disappointment – he’s huggable and everything!

    And, even cooler than that, he has his trademark Wookie growl. As the name would imply, he is very much a Talking Chewbacca.

    Oh, and did we mention that batteries are included? Cheers, Santa!

    Hot Wheels Racing Drone

    Take to the skies with this Hot Wheels Racing Drone, a Christmas toy that does a lot more than look pretty – though it does look stunning in the air, if we say so ourselves.

    Fitted with multiple speed settings, this drone is made for use indoors and out, so you won’t have to leave the comfort of your home.

    And with crash-resistant guards, the chances of a breakage are, shall we say, minimal.

    As opposed to a high-end drone, this a more-than-serviceable alternative and is, without a doubt, a Christmas must-have toy.

    Harry Potter Interactive Creatures Hedwig

    From a flying drone to a flying owl, this Harry Potter Hedwig toy may not make it airborne, but she sure packs a magical punch.

    With in-built sound sensors, Hedwig is in tune with all the goings on of the environment. And she will respond accordingly, turning her head 180 degrees and making 12 different bird sounds.

    This the perfect gift for a Harry Potter fan and, even more so, one of the top ten Christmas toys of 2020.

    Hasbro Thanos Infinity Gauntlet Replica

    Of all the toys out there for this Christmas, this one is… “inevitable”.

    It is “inevitable”…

    Ok, we’ll stop now. But just know that this is the best Christmas gift for a Marvel fan, equipped with glowing Infinity Stones and featuring a locking mechanism for display purposes, too.

    The depths of space are getting a little crowded over here with this Baby Yoda Animatronic Figure. But you know what, the more the merrier!

    Modelled after the recent pop culture icon that is The Child, this toy is inspired by the hit show The Mandalorian, which spun out of the Star Wars franchise in late 2019.

    LEGO is, without a doubt, a defining staple of Christmas, and it is one of the most popular Christmas toys for people of all ages.

    LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox Robot

    Now, this toy for Christmas is reserved for those who want to splash a bit more cash. In fact, it almost feels a disservice to call it a toy, because it’s so much more than that.

    The LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox allows you to assemble and interact with your own personal robot friend, pleasantly named Vernie.

    This does require some technological assistance, however, being controlled by a downloadable app. But when you get it going, Vernie is an intelligent AI able to interact with the environment and respond dynamically.

    It does have 750 pieces, so getting it up and running on Christmas Day might be a tall order. But once you do, it’s undoubtedly worth the effort.

    Scalextric Gulf Race Set

    We couldn’t not mention Scalextric on this list. It has been around since the ’50s, after all…

    And, in all this time, racing small cars around the living room hasn’t lost its edge – even the kids who were around in the ’50s are still giving it a go!

    With multiple track set-ups and car designs inspired by the instantly recognisable blue and orange of Gulf racing cars, this is a Christmas gift perfect for fans of motor racing… and, well, just fun in general.
