According to Argos, 2018 is the “year of the unicorn” with four toys based on the mythical steed included on its list this year, from the My Lovely Unicorn Electric Ride-On to the quirkier Poopsie unicorn who poos glitter. Juliet Ward, head of toy buying at Argos, said she believes this is a sign that “social media trends are influencing toys more than ever before”.
Collectibles continue to be popular too, with a range of dinosaur-themed Fingerlings and LOL Surprise Under Wraps also on the list, while TV stars Paw Patrol return with the new Rescue Fire Truck Playset.
