Hamleys toy store have released predictions for which toys will be in demand this festive season.

According to the toy retailer Hamleys, unconventional dolls with human-like teeth, known as Fugglers, are going to be a hit this Christmas as the trend of 'imperfectionism' reaches the toy industry.

Hamleys said imperfectionism was beginning to emerge as a trend 'as children increasingly resist the pressures of idealised perfection in social channels and celebrity icons.'

Similarly, the Boxer Robot toy is 'needy and fallible - bumping into things, falling over and sometimes saying the wrong thing.'

Hamleys said even established institutions such as Monopoly had seen 'a new blast of reality' with the latest Cheaters Edition letting players steal, deceive and lie to beat fellow competitors.
