Dream Toys 2015
Britain’s toy industry has enjoyed a sales increase of 6% so far this year. Toy retailers and manufacturers hope to keep-up that performance as the peak Christmas shopping period commences and end the year with £3.2 billion being spent on toys and games.

The annual Dream Toys list was announced today in Marylebone, London. The results were decided by a panel of major retailers, including Argos, Boots, Selfridges, Smyths Toys, The Entertainer, TK Maxx and Toys R Us.

Gary Grant, chairman of the Dream Toys committee, said: “The 2015 DreamToys line up has such a great variety of toys ranging from entertainment heavyweights like Star Wars and Thunderbirds through to highly creative and charming toys for tots like the Toot-Toot Friends Busy Sounds Discovery Home.

“This range embraces all that is good about toys and how important toys are to a child’s development”.

63 toys are mentioned on the list with 12 picked as the top toys,
