So what is going to be big for Christmas this year? Being a new Father myself I am certainly becoming aware of the 'true cost' of Christmas! The Pie Face game was the big hit last year. It just goes to show simple, non-technology led products are still driving success and innovation in the market. I better start my Christmas shopping...!
Toy sales in the UK are expected to exceed a record £3.3 billion this year, with £1.1 billion coming from Christmas sales. According to figures from the Toy Retailers Association (TRA), an average of £105 will be spent on toys this festive season, with a record 400 million toys forecast to be sold in 2016. Toy sales also grew by five per cent from January to September compared with the same period last year. The news comes despite the economic uncertainty following the Brexit vote and an impending inflation that would put a squeeze on household incomes. ed for two people.
