Finding the perfect toys for your kids is no mean feat, especially when the top trends for kids can change so much from year to year. Remember when it was all about the yoyo? How about when the infamous Furby ruled the world or when the only thing on a kid’s Christmas list was a Spirograph (just try telling that to kids now). With that in mind, the elves at Wilko have had a sneaky word with Santa to find out what the must-have toys for Christmas are going to be this year. Don’t forget to pick up some batteries to power up your battery-operated toys!

Join us as we run down the biggest kids’ toys for Christmas 2018 to help you get your hands on that perfect present. Get ready to see their face light up when they see what Santa’s brought them this year.
