Dreamtoys and Argos have both released their top toys lists for this festive season – including a unicorn that poops slime and LOL Surprise stocking fillers.
These lists are usually considered as an accurate prediction of the most popular toys this Christmas shopping season, so they're worth browsing if you need some gift ideas.
Some of the toys are quite expensive but we've rounded up the best offers so you can get a better price.
We suggest to do your own research first – finding out what kind of toy you are looking for is the first step for getting a good bargain.
Make a note of the items you want and check how much different retailers charge for them.
