It may only be June but last week we ate mince pies, sat under a Christmas tree and played with LOTS of toys!
Belle and I were on a press trip to Hamleys where they revealed their predictions for the Top Ten must have toys for Christmas 2013. Belle was impressed with a lot of the choices but I shall keep you in suspense a little longer by first sharing some snaps from the day...
Train Station...One of the highlights of the day for Belle!
Belle loved this Hollywood Pedal Car, featured as one of Hamleys "Exceptional Eight" gifts for Christmas RRP £250
Hello Kitty Heaven in Hamleys!
A quick visit to the baby section for Spike
In Hamleys Party Room
These 'Zelfs' (shown on Top Middle and Bottom Left) were one of Belle's favourite things and featured as one of Hamleys 'recommended toys' for Christmas. They are very similar to Trolls. RRP £9
I also have my eye on the Limited Edition Tutu (Top Right) by Luvley. Made with Swarovski RRP £250
Another find of the day which I am going to have to get for baby Spike is the new F1 Lotus Trunki RRP £65
One very happy girl full of Christmas spirit en route home!
Thanks for having us Hamleys!
And without further ado I give you Hamleys Top 10 Toys for Christmas 2013!

Doc McStuffins Doctor's Bag £26 - Let your little one become Doc McStuffin who 'fixes' toys with her glittery doctor's bag.
Teska Puppy £75 - A robotic puppy that responds to your voice, gestures, lights and sound. Teska can bark, cry, whimper and you can even teach Teska tricks!
