John Lewis has unveiled the top 10 toys for Christmas 2017… and they could just break the bank

IT’S only September and it might seem too soon to mention the C-word but there are only 90 shopping days to Christmas.

Not surprisingly, those festive folk at John Lewis are already on the case – and they’ve unveiled their list of the top ten toys for the 2017 market.

This year it’s all about robots, with a few traditional toys thrown in.

But parents should be warned – this lot could seriously break the bank.

The top four all come in at over £100 and the year’s most popular toy, the Comzo Robot, is just a penny shy of £200.

John Lewis toy expert Harry Boughton told the Daily Mail: “This year we’re expecting to see a rise in the demand for toys that combine learning with fun and play.

“As technology continues to improve our day-to-day lives with the rise of smart home devices, tech toys have also seen a rise in popularity, and they’re set to be the biggest trend this Christmas.”

Fans of traditional toys will be pleased to see the old-fashioned dolls’ house, a pirate ship and a cash register making the list.
