Amazon Top Toys Christmas Pie Face Sky High
We loved Pie Face last Christmas. There have been a few updates on the game during the year. This one is brilliant and embraces all the fun of the fair. Not just for little kids, we know from our own experiences that teens LOVE this game. Already (end-Sept) nearly 2000 reviews on Amazon. See also Get A Grip which The Telegraph says is set to replace Pie Face.
Amazon Top Toys Christmas Little Tikes Princess Cozy Chariot
Amazon Top Toys Christmas Mattel Bloxels Game
To be honest, this game was off our radar before today. It’s been out since 2016 and is a set where you can build your own video game. You need to download an app to play. This is a STEAM toy that is highly creative and technical too. One for those tech whizzes of the future!
Amazon Top Toys Christmas Paw Patrol Sea Patroller Playset
You are going to see this playset around a lot at Christmas. Paw Patrol is super-popular with the pre-schoolers and above. Read our post on Paw Patrol toys. This is just a random thought but there are a lot of sea/water-inspired toys around this Christmas…

We love Melissa and Doug toys. This is Amazon’s pick of the play kitchens and it would thrill any child. Read our post about play kitchens.
Amazon Top Toys Christmas Nerf Nitro Motor Fury Rapid Rally
Nerf is a huge brand for all kids – my girls had brilliant Nerf games around a friend’s house in the summer. This is actually a car-blasting toy. It’s new for 2017 and is bound to be big at Christmas. For all Nerf fans, you can now get Amazon Dash for Nerf.
Amazon Top Toys Christmas Elf on the Shelf Letters to Santa
The whole concept of Elf On The Shelf has had its fair share of controversy over the years. However, no-one could fail to love these little letters to Santa. They remind me of Shrinkies which used to be thing years ago. You write your letter to Santa and then – with the help of an adult, of course – shrink them down to ‘elf’ size in the oven. A new way to prepare for Christmas.
As reported in Toy World Magazine on 28/9/17, Sriram Parthasarathy, toy & game manager at Amazon.co.uk, commented: “Unwrapping toys on Christmas morning is one of the lasting memories of the festive season for every generation. Some well-organised families are already planning what’s going to be under the tree on 25th December. Traditional and technological presents feature on this year’s wish list, combining coding, creativity and getting together as a family.”
