It might seem like Christmas is forever and a day away but trust us, the festive season will creep up on us all before we even know it… and if you’ve got a big family, starting planning and shopping sooner rather than later is an excellent way of spreading the cost and also helping you stick to a budget.
When it comes to kids, nothing does it quite as well as toys, toys, toys for Christmas – and we know you’re going to get at least one ride on car to keep the little ones happy and quiet until at least Boxing Day.
But what else could you fill their stockings with this year and what other toys are looking like they’re going to be incredibly popular with children the UK over in 2018? According to various reports, the It Toy for this year happens to be the Scruff-a-Luv, which are apparently unloved and abandoned pets that need a bit of TLC. The toys arrive as a ball of matted fur but once they’ve been given a bath, dried and a good brush, they’ll soon turn into a happy little pet – a bunny, kitten or a puppy. Only time will tell which your kid has got!
So, you’d perhaps be wise to try and get your hands on one before they all sell out.
