We’re in a heatwave, during a pandemic, and we can’t bring ourselves to think about Christmas yet. And yet, here we are.

With just over four months to go until the big day, Argos has announced its highly anticipated top toy predictions for 2020.

According to research conducted by the toy retailer, the time we’ve been spent at home has generated a strong sense of nostalgia.

Half of parents reminisced about their old toys at some point during the nationwide lockdown, and as a result, more than one fifth plan to gift their child something that conjures memories of their own childhood this Christmas.

Little Live Gotta Go Flamingo, £33

This interactive flamingo wiggles and jiggles his neck – and repeats what you say. He even tells you he needs a “poop” after he’s fed. This definitely won’t get on parents’ nerves. Not at all.

Hatchimals Pixies Crystal Flyers, £35

Remember Hatchimals? There’s a new range on the block – and these are fairies that can fly. Launch them from the base or lift them into the air, then use your hands to guide them.

Design A Friend Doll, £35

These dolls love to dance – they have soft bodies but can also raise their arms and legs in “lifelike” positions. An upgrade on your average baby doll, for sure.
