Some of the biggest film and television franchises are dominating toy wishlists this Christmas. The DreamToys 2021 list, released by the Toy Retailers Association, sees Star Wars, PokÃ©mon, Jurassic World, and Paw Patrol making the top 12 alongside perennial favorites like Barbie and Hot Wheels.
âThis year’s DreamToys list is an exciting mix of evergreen favorites and the top brands of the year that we believe will be the most wanted under the Christmas tree this holiday season,â said Gary Grant, president of the DreamToys selection committee.
However, due to speculation about toy shortages due to a lack of delivery drivers and backlogs at manufacturers, buyers will have to “act quickly” as retailers “are already selling,” said The sun.
We’re taking a look at the 12 best toys of 2021, in alphabetical order, and also picking out some other must-have gifts for kids this Christmas.
