We know you are always on the lookout for toy ideas for Christmas around this time of year, so our awards announcements couldn’t have come at a better time really! This category has been by far the most popular, and while the competition was strong we have spent weeks testing and judging to whittle it down to one gold winner, one silver winner and THREE bronze winners! These are the toys that are worth your money this Christmas (or any time of year for that matter!).
- Gold – Hornby Junior Paddington Bear Train Set (RRP £34.99) available at Hornby Hobbies
In a nutshell: “This battery-operated Paddington themed train set is the perfect introduction into the world of Hornby. The plastic contents make it ideal for little hands to play and explore, before taking the next step into Hornby’s junior range; Railroad.”
What our tested said: “This was set up independently by my 7 year old so very easy to assemble and a good confidence booster. My 3 year old and 7 year old love trains so it’s a great toy for them! My 3 year old can be a bit heavy handed so definitely for age 4+. It held their concentration for ages and I would highly recommend it. It would be great if you can buy track extensions / stations / extra ways of building track etc.”
Congrats! But let’s not forget about our silver and bronze winners too!
- Silver – Flymo (RRP £16) by Casdon
- Bronze – PJ Masks PJ Seeker (RRP £69.99) by Flair
- Bronze – Squishmallows (RRP £6.99) by HEXBUG
- Bronze – Coding Critters Ranger & Zip (RRP £40) by Learning Resources
