It may only be summer, but Argos has already released its list of all the hottest toys for the coming holiday season.
With 200 days until Christmas, Argos unveiled its highly-anticipated Christmas list featuring the must-have Top Christmas Toys for 2018. These are the Christmas gifts the retailer expects to be atop many children’s wish lists.
It may only be summer now, but it’s never too early to start planning for your holiday shopping. Argos predicts this will be the ‘Year of the Unicorn’ with many unicorn-themed toys making its list. A number of best-sellers – L.O.L. Surprise! and Fingerlings – also made the list with new updates along with classics like LEGO and PAW Patrol. Most of the toys will be available for purchase beginning in July with a few available later in August. So without further ado, let’s take a look at what made their list.

While, on the surface, it may seem like it’s too early to start thinking about Christmas, Argos’ research revealed that a whopping 4.7 million Brits have – believe it or not – already begun their Christmas shopping. Even more surprising is the fact that nearly half a million Gen Z’s have already completed their Christmas shopping. Talk about being way ahead of the game.
For the rest of us, Argos’ Christmas list is designed to make Christmas shopping easier. Juliet Ward, Head Toy Buyer at Argos stated: “This year’s list is arguably our most exciting and eclectic to date. The list shows how toys are continuing to progress with interactive items the most popular.”
