Children's retailer Toys 'R' Us have released their predictions for which toys will be the most popular with children this Christmas and the list includes some surprising additions.

With 93 days to go until Christmas it may seem a little premature to start thinking about shopping - Halloween isn't even here yet - but with some of the must-haves costing as much as £200 (CHiP Robot Dog), many may want to start stashing the pennies away now.

As well as the ever popular LEGO and NERF products, the top toys for 2016 include a Furby Connect priced at £94.97, a Num Noms Glossy Lip Gloss Truck which costs £29.99 and a SelfieMic that for £19.99 will allow your child to take karaoke to the next level.

'Parents have a great selection of toys to choose from this year,' said Toy 'R' Us Marketing & eCommerce Director Mike Coogan.

'Tech toys is likely to take the lead but we also have one of our longest standing classic brands with two toys listed in our guide - LEGO has evolved with kids, and their ability to offer role play construction associated with popular TV has been epic.

'Overall, we're thrilled with the diverse offering we're able to provide our customers. At Toys 'R' Us, we want to make shopping as easy and simple as possible, it's a fun season and we're already experiencing parents taking full advantage of shopping early in store, online, mobile and through our click and collect service'.
