It's not even Halloween yet, but anyone with children is already thinking about their Christmas list to avoid missing out on this year's must-have toys.
According to MadeForMums, this year's essential gifts for under the tree include very intelligent robots, artificial snow and an elephant called Flappy from Enesco who plays peekaboo.
Flappy is a 35 cm animated cuddly toy elephant with big ears and when you press his feet, he plays peekaboo - hiding his eyes with his flappy ears - or sings (and flaps) to Do Your Ears Hang Low. He's beautifully soft, well made and has the cutest singing voice and ear-flap action.
The parenting site has announced the result of its annual toy awards, with winners in 36 categories being chosen by 250 child judges, five celebrity judges and parent testers over the course of six weeks.
Judges looked at toys for children of all ages, from learning toys for babies to scooters for older children.
