best toys to get this Christmas
16 June 2016

Yes, yes, we know Christmas is a long way off, but if you're counting the pennies and want to get the best toys of 2016 in early, you're in luck.

Whether you want to get them while spreading the Christmas cost around, or just want to be really organised before everything starts selling out, Argos have unveiling its list of the toys of the year.

Some of the most sought after toys include a karaoke microphone for kids (to be used by drunk dad on Christmas night, obviously), a doll that smells like a newborn baby, Lego sets and more.

You're most interested in the karaoke aren't you? Basically, it's a microphone that comes with a selfie-stick, which will allow you to singalong to your favourite songs and basically make a pop video starring yourself, at the same time.

That'll cost you £19.99, and comes with an app.

Another great toy is the remote control BB-8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.

Linzi Walker, chief toy buyer for Argos said: “This year's list shows just how much toys are evolving - lots of our top toys have their roots in parents' Christmas past. Now they've truly moved on, with more sophisticated tech, realistic life-like functions and up-to-date pop culture references."

"We've progressed from the toy caterpillar that toddlers could pull across the floor, to one that starts infants on the road to clever coding."

"Where once there was a baby doll that simply looked like the real thing, we now have one that smells as sweet as a newborn. And while past festivities might have featured a karaoke machine, 2016's budding Beliebers will be making and sharing their own pop videos with a SelfieMic."
