Top 10 Christmas Toys 2013
our top tips for top kids toys at Christmas 2013
The team here at XmasGiftGuru have put together our own page of predicitions for top toys of Christmas 2013, based on research from international toy fairs, hints on other websites and good ol' fashioned gut instinct... In other words, they all looked like fun toys for Christmas!
Here's some we've picked in the past....
Cars 2 Secret Spy Attack Finn McMissile Car Playset
We've not met a young lad who doesn't love the original Cars film, so we predict these McMissile cars will be speeding off the shelves this Christmas. (And for those of us old enough, there's more than a hint here of the classic James Bond Aston Martin DB5!)

Angry Birds Knock on Wood game
A board game inspired by the 'phone game/app? Why not! Smashing good fun for the family, annd no sticky fingermarks on your phone...
This exciting skill-and-action game features three Angry Birds, green pigs, one slingshot-style launcher, structure pieces and mission cards.

Lite Sprite Prisma Sprite, Pod and Wand
Lite Sprites are the ultimate girl gift, combining fairies and magic wands in one enchanting new toy range. Use the Lite Wand to share colour and light with Lite Sprites and the interactive world of Lite-Topia, or with friends and other fairies in the range.

DaGeDar High Speed Score Zone Raceway
From the company that brought you the Zhu Zhu Pets comes DaGeDar, a race game with character balls that zip along a customiseable track. Each DaGeDar ball is a character in itself, and collectors can register the ball’s number online to learn more about their ball. It's probably easier to play than to explain, but we think kids will enjoy this track racing game as generations before enjoyed Hot Wheels, etc.

Yes, along with every other Christmas toy prediciton list, we reckon that Fijit Friends are going to be the must-have toys for tweenagers this Christmas. And with the ability to access new phrases, songs, etc via interactive 'chirp' codes, these Fijits should be more than a 7 day (or several tunes) wonder.

Happy Feet 2 Sing and Dance Erik Soft Toy
If this 3D film sequel is even half as successful as the original Happy Feet, this new singing and dancing Eric penguin will be a must-have for Christmas 2011.
(Image shows Eric the character from Happy Feet 2, not the toy, which is due for release on 7 October 2011.)

Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (4842)
There are going to be thousands of kids with severe Potter withdrawl symptoms now that the last film has been released. So, we predict this excellent Lego Hogwarts castle set will help cure the post-Harry blues. Explore this essential Harry Potter set to discover incredible details like Dumbledore’s office with sliding spiral staircase, the Slytherin and Gryffindor common rooms, and so much more!

RC Fast Wheels
We think RC Fast Wheels are a stroke of absolute genius, as they turn any die-cast model car (1:64 scale) into an RC (radio controlled) car! Simply click on the RC fast Wheels and it's race time. Clever, cheap(ish), and recycles old Dinky-type models - perfect!
