  • Experts behind the supermarket’s biggest toy range to date have revealed their top 10 list of Christmas toys

With Christmas only 61 days away, shoppers can breathe a sigh of relief as supermarket Aldi has released its 10 predicted must-have toys this Christmas – all for amazing prices. From traditional wooden toys such as a beautiful ornate Wooden Dolls House for under £30 and LEGO sets from as little as £6.99, Aldi has everything shoppers need for a magical Christmas day without the high price tag.
While tech-savvy youngsters will still be able to find an electric scooter under the tree, Aldi has noticed a significant move towards classic toys that nurture children’s development. This year, the retailer predicts a shift towards retro and branded toys which encourage imaginative play as opposed to high-tech gadgets, with 70% of its top 10 falling within the traditional toy category.
Aldi’s Top 10 Toys Predictions 2018 are:
  1. Wooden Kitchen (£29.99)
  2. Electric Scooter (£69.99)
  3. Wooden Playshop/Theatre (£29.99)
  4. Fur Real Toys (£19.99)
  5. Wooden Dolls House (£29.99)
  6. LEGO (£6.99)
  7. Barbie (£14.99)
  8. Rocking Horse (or Unicorn) (£29.99)
  9. Hatchimal Owlicorn (£29.99)
  10. Teepee (£39.99)
Parents will be glad to hear that Aldi’s new range of great quality traditional Christmas toys are affordable and accessible for all, proving that there is no need to spend a fortune to get the latest must-have gifts for Christmas morning. Aldi has also made Christmas shopping easier than ever, as from the 21st October, parents can peruse the new dedicated Online Toy Store, which will be regularly updated with toys, gadgets and games throughout the festive season to be delivered directly to homes across the UK.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK comments:Christmas is such a magical time and this year we’re proud to spread some festive cheer by offering our biggest and best range of toys yet. We also know how stressful Christmas shopping can be, which is why our team of experts have been hard at work to try and take as much of the stress out of Christmas as possible by hand-picking the latest must-have toys for our customers.
With more and more Brits shopping for their gifts online, we hope our new online toy store will help to make the process much easier for shoppers and ensure that our quality products are available to more customers than ever before, including those who do not have an Aldi store nearby.”
The October Toy Event is available in stores and online via the Aldi Toy Store from the 21st October, but shoppers will have to be quick because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone! What’s more, Aldi offer free standard delivery over £20, making their online store even more of a good find!
