The run-up to Christmas is a frantic time for toy retailers and toy stores expect to see the promotion of old-time favourites along with toys based on movies, toys from TV shows as well as last years top toys for Christmas to hit the shelves again.

Popular action films are always followed by an array of DVD, gifts and toys to go with the hit movie; they make ideal presents at any time of the year.

Finding the right toy to suit the age of a child is not always easy; kids grow up so quickly that before you know it they’ve outgrown the present they so wanted. Top Toy Guide looks to find toys for all ages from the early learning stage to young adult.

Children age 2 to 5 years old

Most toy shops cater well for the pre-school age group, however with TV and movie merchandise making up a large amount of the toy stock available a balance still needs to be struck between these kinds of toys and those considered more creative and educational.

Many popular online shops, for example, Early Learning Centre and Amazon.co.uk cater well for 2 to 5-year-old children. These online stores publish valuable product reviews, customer comments and opinions.

Favourite children’s characters Fifi and the Flowertots, Dora the Explorer, Thomas the Tank Engine, Roary, Waybuloo and Peppa Pig all have a massive following from the toddler’s corner.

No doubt as soon as the new animated series of Zigby is aired on CBeebies there’ll be many plush toys and games of this adventurous zebra and his friends.

Aimed at 3 to 5-year-olds the fifty-two 11 minute animation series is set in a beautiful jungle island and is full of fun adventures with friends Mcmeer the Meerkat and Bertie the Guinea Fowl.

Zigby is based on Brian Pateson’s book, Zigby the Zebra trots into Trouble. Books are available from Amazon.


Toys & Games for 5 to 8-year-old children

Children at around the age of five to eight years old quickly start to develop a unique personality with interests that can remain with them for the rest of their lives.

This age group love playing with toys that engage their curiosity imagination and are challenging, like board games, remote control toys, puzzles, construction sets, action figures, dolls and role play games.

Buying toys for 5 to 8-year-olds is made easier with the release of blockbuster movies and the toys that soon follow. Boys can enjoy reenacting action scenes and girls too can create their own fantasy world from top films like Barbie and the three Musketeers and High Street Musical 3.

Dress up costumes are a great choice that gives good play value and encourages social skills among their friends as they pretend to be their favourite characters like Harry Potter, Bumblebee Transformers, Dr Who, Disney Princess or whoever their superhero is at the time.

Television and films play an important part at this age with shows like Hannah Montanna, SpongeBob, Star Wars, Batman, Spiderman and Indiana Jones. Other interests include music related toys and games, musical instruments, computer and handheld video games.


Toys & Games for older children of 9 to 11 years old

 

When children reach the ages between 9 and 11 years old they begin to explore new experiences, question and play differently often through sport, technology and science and arts and crafts.

They take very easily to challenging games like those found on gaming consoles like the handheld PSP and Nintendo DSi Lite with its challenging strategic games.

HM Forces Night Vision Goggles from character online may be popular with this age group and the Nintendo DSi Console released in 2009 is expected to be added to the list of best-selling toys for 9 to 11-year-olds.


Teenagers 12 to 16 years old

Buying toys and gifts for young and older teenagers can be a bit more of a headache for parents trying to get something cool for them to open especially when Christmas time comes around.

Young teenagers appreciate fun gifts as well as the more whacky presents. Firebox and I Want One of those are great online stores for finding this kind of present.

While nitro RC cars, robots and football kits will be welcome, cool gadgets such as iPods, mobile phones, mp3 players and the high-end gaming consoles will be top of the wish list too. The latest Playstation from Sony will even be on mum and dads wish list!
