It’s that time of year when parents, grandparents and other gift buyers are on the lookout for toy ideas for Christmas! So our awards announcements really couldn’t have come at a better time.
By far the most popular of all Mums Choice categories, the competition was strong! With so many fantastic toys for this age group, the judging process has been no easy task. In fact, the category was so strong that we decided to split the group into toys that are great for girls and toys that are brilliant for boys – though we know that both boys and girls alike will love the winning items in each of these sub-categories!
After weeks of testing, we’re pleased to announce that our mums have selected their favourites! These are the toys that are worth your money this year:
