A.T Johnson in Downham Market, has been selling out of some of this year's new toys in the run-up to the big day, however traditional favourites such as Playmobil, Lego and Brio have remained top of the pile.

Toy shop manager Jane Shore said the top new toy this year was the Lol Surprise dolls, which are about the same size as the Polly Pocket figures which were popular in the 90s.

Next on the list was the Pictionary Air board game, which is very similar to the old version of the classic board game, however competitors use apps on their smartphones and tablets.

Another board game selling well was Bank Attack, this game encourages players to rob £50m from a bank within 5 minutes.

Lastly the most bizarre toy flying off the shelves was Boppi the Llama, a twirking toy pet which plays music.

Ms Shore said: "In general Lego and Playmobil are always top every year, along with wooden railway tracks, but those are the top most popular ones that I've seen."
