Amazon UK Reveals 2016 List of Hot Toys

Posted on August 16, 2016

August seems a little early for Christmas toy picks but Amazon UK has already released its list of hot holiday toys for 2016. The list includes some of the electronic toys that were introduced at Consumer Electronics Show and Toy Fair earlier this year.

The Evening Standard reports that Amazon.co.uk Store Manager Pete Masters says, "It may be the summer holidays but thoughts are already turning to what's going to be under the tree come December 25th. This year, there have been some exciting developments in toys and games technology with traditional presents such as a toy dog, dolls house and train set transformed for the next generation. These are toys that encourage imagination, creativity, motor skills and problem solving through fun that'll last long past Christmas Day."

Here is the list of toys that Amazon UK expects will be topping children's wish lists this year. We are surprised no Star Wars merchandise made the list. We have added links to our blog posts about the toy, if available.

Furby Connect, Torch, Code-a-Pillar and Chip will likely be showing up on other hot toy lists this year.
