Luckily, we aren't quite at that stage yet - but nonetheless, it's the time of year when toy companies are putting the finishing touches on their Christmas ranges.
Here at Parentdish, we were lucky enough to get a chance to see (and play with) Hasbro's top toys for Christmas - and now we've put together a gallery of our favourites, giving you a head start on what you can expect to find on your child's letter to Santa Claus this year.
Younger children aren't left out either - check out the chunky Spiderman action figure with oversized plush fists (guaranteed not to hurt if you end up getting repeatedly bashed in the face with them by an overexcited toddler).
If you've got a budding artist in the family, the new Doh Vinci range lets them create designs with colourful malleable compounds, which can be left to harden overnight so they can keep their favourite trinkets.
Have a look at our picks, and let us know if any of these might be making an appearance under your tree come December 25.
