Christmas is all about giving. Whether it's spending quality time watching festive films as a family or making it extra special for your newborn with their first Christmas outfit, there are loads of ways to make the holidays special. Instead of spending all your time thinking about what to buy the kids, toy experts have revealed the best Amazon toys this Christmas.

From film franchise games and playsets to unique toys, these recommendations are full of surprises. Whether your little one is four or ten, there's something on this magical list for everyone.

How to choose the best Amazon toy for your child?

Undoubtedly the best way to choose a present for your kids is by getting them involved in the selection process. Encourage your children to look through some selected items that they might like and get them to write a letter to Father Christmas. That way you'll really know if this is right for your little helper.

Matthew Redfearn, Toy Category Manager at said, "It is always an exciting time of year when we release the top ten toys and we hope that this Christmas more families will be able to reunite to enjoy them together. As we look forward to spending more time with loved ones, we at Amazon are doing everything we can to spread a little festive cheer."

Matthew then goes on to add, "The Trending Machine has been brought to life to help us deliver smiles and make Christmas extra special, not only for passersby but also for children in hospitals over Christmas.”
