Must Have Toys This Christmas: Where To Find Them Cheapest
This year toys seem to have gone full circle with some classics making a reappearance but with a modern twist.
Perhaps the men and women in the ideas department have finally run dry. Or possibly the toys making a resurgence sold so well last time that the manufacturers are convinced the demand is still there.
This list looks at which toys are likely to be must-haves this Christmas and where to find them cheapest. We’ll start with classic 90s robot, our furry friend Furby.
Furby: £54.97 from Tesco
Furby is back and he’s more clever than ever. Upon original release back in the 90s, they’re unique selling point was that they could talk to each other. In 2012, they can talk to you via Apple and Android apps that translate their speech into English. With an RRP of £59.99, the best we could find was £54.97 from Tesco.
Twister Dance: £19.80 from FreshLeaf
Dance games have made a huge impact over the last few years and it was never going to be long before standard board games embraced the technology. Twister Dance has light up spots to place your hands and feet on in time to the music, with tracks featuring Ke$ha and Britney Spears. You can pick it up for £19.80, over £7 off the RRP.
Micro Drone Quadcopter: £39.99 from Groupon
Using the latest technology, this remote control airborne machine uses four blades to make flying easy. With an RRP of £74.99, the best we could find was £39.99 from vouchercodes website Groupon.
Remote Control Pro Racer: £99.99 from Groupon (again)
The Pro Racer is a ride-on car for kiddies over the age of three. Instead of giving your little one control over their speed and direction, you have control with an easy to use remote. This added safety feature looks set to make this a top seller this Christmas. It has an RRP of £199.99 but we managed to find it for £99.99 from Groupon.
Nerf Elite Hail-Fire: £22.49 from Amazon
Nerf is another one of those brands that you associate with the 70s, but who have made a real comeback in the last couple few years. Their latest offering fires 144 foam darts up to 75 feet. It’s a monster. The Hail-Fire has an RRP of £44.99 but if you look on Amazon you can pick it up for £22.49 somehow.
According to current sales, these are five of the most sold items in the run up to Christmas 2012, complete with the cheapest places to buy them.
