'Some toys have maintained their popularity and kids today are playing with the same toys that their parents did'
The predicted top sellers for this year are decidedly more modern (and techy) – find out the top 10 toys of 2013 here.
‘In recent years we have seen the rise of the tablet and techy gifts, we have two tablets alone on our list of top 10 and last year sold 700% more than previous years,’ says James Ford, Debenhams toy buyer.
‘Dolls and action figures feature heavily as the best loved toys of all time, the only techy toy to make the list was 90s favourite, the Tamagotchi. It’s nice to see that even despite technological advances some toys have maintained their popularity and kids today are playing with the same toys that their parents did.’
