With the Christmas shopping season beginning in earnest, Amazon has announced the retailer and selling platform’s top ten toys. They are expected to be the best sellers this holiday, with children eagerly hoping to receive them under the tree.
Only one LEGO set has made the list, Harry Potter 75955 Hogwarts Express. The set builds the famous engine as well as a section of Platform 9 ¾, making it a particularly iconic build in a theme packed with them.
“The most exciting moment of Christmas Day is watching children unwrap their presents,” said Sriram Parthasarathy, Toys Leader at Amazon.co.uk. “Amazon offers thousands of top rated toys, including everything from unicorns to family board games – and our top 10 list includes the latest and greatest toys that will be in popular demand this festive season.”
The list should be taken with a pinch of salt – while 75955 Hogwarts Express will likely be popular, as will L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise!, these lists are also intended to drive up demand for lesser known products that retailers will have in plentiful supply.
