Selected by a panel of industry experts with unique insight into toy trends and the UK market, these 12 toys are guaranteed to sell like hot cakes this year.
We've collected the Dream Toys into a gallery (see below) so you can stay one step ahead of the crowd and avoid disappointment when the present-buying rush sets in. This year, there's tons of variety in the line-up, with something for boys and girls of all ages.
For Frozen fans, the standout is the Snow Glow Elsa, whose dress lights up as she belts out 'Let It Go'. And young Minecraft lovers will be thrilled by the new figurines of game characters like Steve and Zombie, bringing the online world to life.
Virtual pets are a reality this year, with the Little Live Pets parrot which can repeat what it hears, and - for kids who prefer something more rough 'n' tumble - the Zoomer Dino, whose roaring rampages must be contained before he can be tamed into a faithful friend.
Elsewhere, long-standing favourites like Nerf launchers and reaction-testing game Bop-It! retain their place in the top 12 with clever, modernised spins on their well-known formats.
