Toys will be Toys list their best selling toys for 2017 to help you buy with confidence.

The real highlights for this year have been Magformers - the intelligent magnetic construction sets which are fantastic for all ages and approved by parents as a terrific STEM toy.

Always extremely popular are the Jellycat range of cuddly animals. The Bunnies and Bears are always the most popular but I do love the Dinosaur and the Toothy Shark!

I don't think the Kinetic Sand will ever go out of fashion, adults love its mesmerising properties as much as children!

Nanoblocks make a great gift for an older child or adult. The bricks are small, half the size of a standard Lego size brick and come in a great range of designs.

Lottie Dolls are beautifully made and come in so many characters, I will definitely be adding more to the range. They have been created to defy gender stereotypes and encourage youngsters to be adventurous, inquisitive and sporty.

The Amazing Baby range is a favourite of mine. The range of brightly coloured soft toys are perfect from birth and will stimulate your child's development through play.
