John Lewis reveals top 10 toys for Christmas – and it's a return to 80s and 90s favourites | The Sun

THERE are 141 days until Christmas and some parents will already be planning for the perfect presents for their little ones.

John Lewis has revealed the top 10 toys that will be top of childrens' Christmas lists this year.

Christmas shopping can be expensive and with the current cost of living crisis, even the price tags on presents are likely to be higher this year.

So it pays to start planning early – spreading the cost of the big day over the next few months mean you won't have to fork out hundreds extra come December.

While many of John Lewis's top gifts aren't available for sale yet, you can start stashing the pennies away for when it's time to buy.

If you are trawling the shops for the most popular pressies, make sure you shop around for the best price.

You may find the same toy in a different shop at a much cheaper price.
