Top Toys for Christmas 2015
The new Lego Elves theme includes all you need to delight boys and girls along with some adults too. A touch of magic, some unicorns and Pegasus, secret hideouts and fairy dust. A wonderful idea from Lego and one that is an absolute delight for both genders.
If you’ve watched Nickolodeon this year you will have seen this track advertised before any Peppa Pig. Sturdy and easy to put together it’s a great set as a first train set and perfect for little hands, while the twisty turvy rails add extra excitement. Bound to be a favourite as kids and adults play together on Christmas Day.
Doc McStuffin Lego Duplo
A wonderful set that ticks lots of boxes from doctor role play to TV characters to Lego. Our little ones loved it and so did the older children. A must for any girl (or boy) this Christmas.
on the same Duplo theme but with a Disney twist we also love,
Sophia the First Lego Duplo
Build and explore the DUPLO Disney Sofia the First™ Royal Castle with Sofia, Princess Amber and Clover the rabbit. Princess fun and magical surprises await around every corner. Accessories include golden magic wands, sleeping blankets, treasure chest, jewel brick and crest, chandelier and windows with decorated bricks.
Still the best interactive toy for encouraging young ones to read independently. This year it has new books such as Sophia the First above. A must for any child between the ages of 3 and 6.

What on Earth Wall Books
A Look Back at the Top Toys of 2014
1. Baby Doctor
We love Baby Doctor and all the accessories that come with her. You’ll find she instantly becomes a favourite of your toddler’s. The diagnostic laptop and baby doctor bed will also see a lot of action. Every teddy in the Consumer Voice offices (and there are a lot) had their temperature checked and recorded by Baby Doctor. Forget Doc Mc Stuffins there’s a new doc in town! Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/ZapfCreationUK
2. Role Play Tins
Staying on the doctor theme we think these are our favourite stocking fillers, ever. In one small, very attractive tin, you find everything you need for role play. We loved the doctor’s set and the pirate, but most of all we loved the obvious quality. They really are sturdy and unlike a lot of toys this year, they do look and feel as though they could be passed down through the generations. They’re also incredibly affordable. Many of our team are actually going back for more! Find them at www.woodandtoys.co.uk
3. Loom Bands Complete Set
Loom bands are still all the rage and this full set is not only quite cheap it has everything a loomer needs. It’s also HUGE don’t let the image fool you this is one heavy large gift. You’ll find it creates lots of curiosity before the day, that’s if you have space under the tree for it.
4. Tornado Maker
We love a bit of science here at TCV can you tell we tend to stay away from technology? When it comes to toys we want ones that let us play too! In fact this tornado maker is so cool, the adults played with it before the children, we love it and know you will too!
5. Playmobile Ark
This is huge and has every animal you need to have hours of fun and role play. It’s bound to be a firm favourite on Christmas Day. Playmobile are coming out with some excellent toys lately and many have special offers on such as the school yard which is half price at Home Bargains. For toys that get the imagination flowing you can’t go far wrong with Playmobile.
6. Tobar Haynes Manual
Ok, this maybe more for the adult kid in your life but it really is a fantastic concept. The book allows you to build your very own double decker bus. Great for sending to friends overseas, as not only does it have a British feel, it’s also easy to post. We suggest you keep an eye on Tobar as they have some really great stocking fillers, this is just one example of those.
