The top toys of The Toy Fair 2019

The top toys of The Toy Fair

No time for pleasantries. Let’s get right down to business, because you’re here for one reason and one reason alone: to discover the identity of the top toys of 2019.

The good news is you’re in luck, because after doing yesterday’s nursery run, I hotfooted it to the UK’s largest dedicated toy, game and hobby trade show (a.k.a. The Toy Fair). And do you know what I did as soon as I got there? I ate an awful lot of gummy sweets and experienced a humungous sugar high. Happily, after I’d come down from that, I rediscovered my editorial instinct and set off to hunt down the toys that had been shortlisted for the show’s Editor’s Choice award (read: the media’s favourite toy of the fair).

What happened next? Find out by watching the video that’s embedded below. Spoiler alert: it features a deluxe wooden Peppa Pig playhouse, a Hogwarts Express train set, a cuddly toy/RC car hybrid, a new coding robot called Artie 3000 and my cheeks getting redder and redder and redder.

What’s that? You’re a rushed-off-your-feet parent who doesn’t have time to wade through a nine-minute video searching for the age-appropriate products your kid might want to add to your credit card bill? I hear you, and what’s more I can help you.
