DreamToys launches the Christmas list for 2018 today, advising shoppers on the best toys this Christmas, and a number of LEGO sets made the cut. Each year, a committee of toy retailers and experts produce the DreamToys list, pointing shoppers towards the must-have toys for Christmas. The Toy Retailers Association puts the list together, that covers toys across eight categories and lists an overall top twelve. The top 12 toys includes one LEGO set \u2013 Harry Potter 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall. Surrounding the wizarding product are toys that follow this year\u2019s smash hits, L.O.L. Surprise! and Monopoly Fortnite Edition, along with Fingerlings, Cra-Z-Slimy Creations and Paw Patrol. The \u201cIt\u2019s Showtime\u201d category picks out movie based toys and features two LEGO Harry Potter sets \u2013 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall and 75955 Hogwarts Express. LEGO Jurassic World 75928 Blue\u2019s Helicopter Pursuit is also listed in that category. LEGO City 60195 Arctic Mobile Exploration Base can be found in the \u201cPlay, Set & Match\u201d category, while the Stocking Fillers category includes the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures series. \u201c2018 has been very disruptive for the toy industry globally. However, whilst retail is experiencing a transformation, more than \u00a31.2BN worth of toys will be sold this Christmas,\u201d said Frederique Tutt, global analyst for The NPD Group\u2019s toy division. \u201cWe expect dolls, slime, Harry Potter, collectables and \u2018unboxing\u2019 toys to be on children\u2019s lists.\u201d \u201cThis year\u2019s DreamToys list captures the real wonder and anticipation of Christmas time,\u201d said Gary Grant, chair of the DreamToys selection committee. \u201cPlay is something that is very important to a child\u2019s development and the toys selected for DreamToys 2018 promote many key play values while maintaining the excitement that comes with unwrapping a favourite at Christmas.\u201d To continue to support the work of Brick Fanatics, please buy your LEGO sets from shop.LEGO.com and Amazon using our affiliate links.
