Things to make life easier and better for you.

1 Kidizoom Twist, £49.99.

Budding photographers will love to get their hands on this kids’ camera. The twisting lens makes using it child’s play and you can also shoot videos too. Buy it in blue or pink.

2 Doggie Doo, £22.99.

It might not sound so appealing, but feed the cute Dachshund the Plasticine, press the lead and watch him poop it out. At the very least it will teach your children the basics of being a responsible dog owner.

3 Fijit Friends, £54.99.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without the latest interactive toy release. This little chap will chat with you using more than 150 phrases and will dance to music with its hilariously fidgety body. Great for hours of entertainment and made from a squishy, oh-so-huggable, material.

4 Fireman Sam Pontypandy Rescue Set, £29.99.

Everyone loves Fireman Sam – the eternally-young firefighter from the Welsh valleys.

The rescue set includes 15 pieces, including figures and accessories. Help Fireman Sam on his rescue adventures, from cooker fires, to cats up trees.

5 Monster High Lagoona’s Hydration Station, £39.99.

You might not of heard of Monster High – but there’s a good chance your children know it well. These American fashion dolls are like Barbie – with attitude. You get the Lagoona Blue doll and a ‘hydration station’ which lights up.

6 Moshling Treehouse, £18.99.

Got the Moshi Monsters? All you need now is somewhere to keep them and this treehouse is the perfect place. There’s a working lift and it’s a bright, colourful and attractive piece of kit.

7 Ninjago Fire Temple, £91.99.

There’s so much Lego to choose from it can be bewildering and this set is far from the cheapest. But the Ninjago Fire Temple is a pretty impressive sight to behold.

As the temple splits into two, the fearsome Fire Dragon emerges to protect the sword by spitting fire at Lord Garmadon.

8 Let’s Rock Elmo, £69.99.

This retro toy is back and you don’t need to be a Sesame Street fan to fall in love with Elmo. Cuddly Elmo will sing and dance – plus there’s instruments to add in future.

9 Star Wars Ultimate Force Tech Lightsaber, £39.99.

Big boys and little boys will love this one. It glows, hums and feels just like the real thing.

10 Milky the Bunny, £59.99.

Pet lovers can escape the hassle of owning the real thing with this interactive toy rabbit. Milky moves his ears, nose and feet, eats his carrot and snores.
