Christmas may still be three months away, but retailers are preparing early. And Amazon has already predicted its top 10 most asked-for children’s toys this year – including a Unicorn that poos glitter.
Harry Potter Lego, Barbie and laser guns are also tipped to be among the must-have playthings from the online retailer this Christmas, with prices ranging between £40 and £84.99.
Here are Amazon’s predictions for what every child will want this festive season.
1. Little Live Pets Wrapples Toy, £16.99
This fluffy wearable pet talks, sings and moves and can be taken everywhere you go by snapping the band around your wrist.
It also features more than 50 interactive sounds and light-up eyes which “match mood changes”.
2. Chow Crown, £21.99
This food-based family board game requires players to don a crown decorated with dangling forks, each loaded with food of your choice, before the headpiece spins around and plays music as you painstakingly try to munch the treats in front of you.
Players aren’t allowed to use their hands and are challenging with eating all the food before the music stops. The game sadly doesn’t come with food provided.
3. Strictly Come Dancing Board Game, £28.95
This family board game aims to bring a bit of Strictly magic into your home, with players asked to complete trivia questions, win challenges and perform mini-dance offs to score votes.
The voice of TV judge Craig Revel Horwood will score your performance after your competitors vote, making it a tricky task to claim the coveted glitter ball trophy.
4. Barbie Careers Care Clinic Ambulance, £37.49
Functioning as both an ambulance and a hospital, the Barbie Care Clinic features siren sounds, lights and three distinct play spaces, including a check-in area and exam room, complete with an x-ray machine.
5. Nerf Laser Ops Pro Alphapoint, £44.78
These two toy laser guns are designed with unlimited ammo, and come complete with lights and sounds.
Ideal for laser battle face-offs or as part of a team, the toys can also be adjusted for the environment with the indoor-outdoor switch.
6. Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn, £49.99
This cute unicon will poop out glittery slime if you feed it, and the colourful poop can also be customised into ten different magical surprises.
The prodict comes with unicorn food packet (slime powder), mystery scent dropper and a collectible poopsie keychain, offering kids plenty of glitter-infused mess to play with.
7. Paw Patrol Ultimate Rescue Fire Truck Extendable, £64.93
Kids can channel their inner fire-fighter with this Marshall’s fire truck toy, equipped with a 2ft extendable ladder, water cannons, a mini fire cart, and lights and sounds.
8. LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Train Toy, £73.99
Youngsters can build their very own Hogwarts Express and Platform 9 3/4 with this 801 piece LEGO set.
Also featuring a railway bridge, moving brick wall platform entrance and five mini character figures.

This interactive bot comes ready to play with straight out of the box.
Complete with 10 activity cards, it will play a variety of games, including bowling, go kart racing and football, depending on which card is scanned.
10. L.O.L Surprise! Bigger Surprise!, £84.99
