Best Toys for Christmas 2016

The Nigel Clarke Blog has news for you. Today I was working at Kidtropolis. A fun family event taking place at London’s ExCel on the 25th/26th/27th October. To hear more about this event please check my Kidtropolis Blog Post which will be up later this week. This post is specifically about the announcement of their Top Toys for Christmas 2016, or as I like to call it. Best Toys for Christmas 2016. The thing that makes this list especially relevant is that it is voted for by children. That’s right a specially selected group of Toy testers actually play with all the toys. Then at the end of a fun filled session they vote for their favourites. What better way to find out what kids really like?

Helping me announce the winners was none other than Tiana from Toys and Me. The young YouTube star unwrapped the Top 10 toys in a tense reveal. So without further a do, here are the Best Toys for Christmas 2016.
