It’s definitely not too early to begin getting organised for the gift-giving that’s on it’s way and the toy aisle is generally the first stop. But what exactly should we be putting in our trolleys for kids this year?

Shane Carter, Head of Kids Universe at BIG W says research is key when it comes to knowing what will top a child’s toy wish list.

“We’re always researching the latest trends, fads and fashions for kids and listening to our customers to ensure we have the best range on offer,” he says.

And we parents are researching too. With so many toys on the market, we want to make sure that our hard earned dollars are going to be spent on toys that are not only educational and practical, we want toys that the kids will actually play with!

Fortunately 2019 has seen some pretty epic entries onto the toy scene, and we’ve rounded up some of our favourites in the gallery below.
