HAMLEYS has revealed its top ten Christmas toys – and there's a Playdoh ice cream and Peppa Pig on roller skates on the list.

Dolls, Barbies and a remote controlled car are all tipped as sell-out toys, which ranges in price from £22 to £100.

There are a number of well-known branded items included as well, from Peppa Pig to CoComelon and Buzz Lightyear.

Victoria Kay, head of buying at Hamleys, said: "With iconic characters featuring in the list, we know we have chosen the very best, most wanted toys, from strong brands that will be cherished by families as they grow."

Of course, it's always worth looking around for the best deals and factoring in delivery costs on top.

Just because a retailer has products on sale that doesn't mean you can't find it cheaper elsewhere.
