For most of us, Christmas starts in December. But if you’re a parent who’s looking to buy their child the perfect gift, you might want to start looking for it right now.
With only 14 weeks to go until Christmas, many parents are scrambling to pick a decent toy for their children, knowing that if they wait for a month or two, most of the popular toys will be completely sold out.
Given the issues the UK is currently going through with its supply chains, this scramble to grab the hottest toy is only likely to get more frantic.
This is why it is a good idea to start looking for the right toy now. Fortunately, the Mirror has predicted which toys are going to be the first to fly off the shelves, so grab them quick.
