What are our best selling toys this Christmas? Some of the wooden toys we offer are best sellers year after year. In pride of place has to be the fantastic Mini Cakes and Stand which has been immensely popular for a couple of years now, and not surprisingly. The detail is incredible and with 12 mouth-watering wooden cakes plus wooden stand at £11.99 it’s incredible value too.
Another best seller this year and a consistent favourite for 2 or 3 years is the Magic Roller, now available in Red or Purple . If only my knees allowed I’d be riding one myself – fantastic fun, and at £39.99 we know our price is very competitive. Others are selling this same item, sometimes called the Magic Roller, for £49.99 or more.
New this year but already a Best Seller is Le Grand Garage from Le Toy Van, a brightly painted multi-level garage that will give years of enjoyment to car-mad boys or girls who can zoom their cars up and down the ramps, in and out of the lift, round the carpark… It even has a helicopter and heli-pad. A lovely toy.
Perhaps the biggest surprise for us has been how popular Whizzers are. This is the first year we have had them in our range with Girl’s style’s and Boy’s styles, and they are selling equally well. When I was a boy they came as cardboard cutouts on the side of Cornflakes packets, but these wooden ones are much more sophisticated and colourful. In fact so popular have these been we have now run out of some of the styles we started with and have had to switch to other equally colourful and fun designs. Father Christmas has already taken several hundred pairs from us and we fully expect him to order even more as last-minute stocking fillers over the next few weeks. Make sure you ask him to get some for your child!
