The UK’s number one parenting site has announced its pick of this year’s best toys for Christmas.   

MadeForMums has revealed the must-have toys this year, as judged and recommended by kids and parents and approved by experts.

With over 300 nominated toys, 200 toys were shortlisted for the MadeForMums Top Christmas Toys 2020 and rigorously tested at home by children and their parents, marking toys for play potential, value for money and Christmas wow factor.

Ranging from £2.99 to £69.99, this year’s festive Top 20 includes a laugh-out-loud family game where you try to be the first to flip your alien into the drone, and a hilariously interactive flamingo with a wobbly neck that sings and uses it’s own special toilet.  

Meanwhile the 100 winning Top Xmas Toys 2020 were selected by the MadeForMums editorial team, based on testing feedback and expert comparison.
