Top Christmas toys for 2011

As we approach the most important weeks in the year for the retail industry, the Toy Retailers Association has released a list of the top twelve Christmas toys expected to be flying off the shelves this year.

Topping the list is a plastic dog that poops plasticine. Alan Simpson, from the TRA, commentated: "Kids like poo, but it's yellow, so it's OK. It's not a normal game, it's wacky." Hmmmm...

The list also includes some less-wacky old favourites like Fireman Sam, Elmo and even Star Wars.

But there's a strong emphasise on hi-tech products, with interactive cuddly toys, digital cameras and two computer tablets all making the top twelve.
