It may be October, but with a potential toy shortage on the horizon, we should probably start thinking about this year's Christmas presents and, when it comes to kids, that means it's time for the top 10 Christmas toys for 2021...

In all honesty, the world of toys is an absolute maze and, from Barbie to Batman, there's simply too much to choose from. Thankfully, the folks at Amazon know how overwhelming it can be picking out gifts to sit under the tree each year, so they've narrowed down our choice to only the top tier crème de la crème of presents.

With a selection for tots as little as six months up to big kids almost of secondary school age, and a range of price point starting at £22, there really is something for everyone here.

Plus, with kids looking to see gifts from their favourite TV shows in their Christmas stockings each year, parents can rest easy knowing Amazon has got them covered with the likes of Ryder from Paw Patrol, Marvel's Spiderman and even Harry Potter in this year's top Christmas toys for 2021.

So without further ado...

Little Live Pets Gotta Go Turdle

From the Baby Born Potty Training Doll to this 'Gotta Go Turdle', in recent years toy companies have started to bring potty training into the play sphere and, well, it's been a huge success. Kids love to put their toys through the same day-to-day tasks they do and, with 'Shelbert' the turtle, the rigmarole of potty training is certainly livened up! He wiggles his food down his long neck, singing as he does, and then poops out 'magical' crystals which then dry back to turtle food - it's quite the sight, really.Age: 6 months - 3 years

L.O.L Surprise! OMG Movie Magic Studios

L.O.L dolls aren't a new phenomenon by any means and it probably won't come as a surprise to well-versed parents that this toy WILL sell out this year (in fact Amazon have only got nine of them left in stock ud83dude33). You may need to be quick to get hold of this one, but you'll soon understand why... With a whopping 12 dolls, four movie stages and even a movie theatre green screen, this is undoubtedly a 'main-event' Christmas present and will keep kids entertained for hours. It's also not cheap, but with one L.O.L Surprise Doll coming in at around £10 without a pop up doll's house, we'd say the value for money works out.Age: 3-10
