Frederique Tutt concludes: “In the second week of December, our sales figures underlined the continued strong appeal of the L.O.L. Surprise! range. The “unboxing” toys are priced from £10 to £169 so there’s something in the selection to suit most budgets. The appearance of Dobble in the top 10 is an indicator that sales of Games & Puzzles will grow strongly in the run up to Christmas Day as families plan for quality time together. And if you’ve missed the trend for llamas in the toy sector over the last year, you may have been living on the moon! Boppi the llama will be shakin’ its booty in many homes over the festive period.”
