It may only be the first week in October but the countdown to Christmas 2017 has already begun.
In fact, there are 82 shopping days left until the big day.
Not surprisingly, those festive folk at Smyths are already on the case – and they’ve unveiled their list of the top toys for the 2017 market.
This year it’s all about robots such as the sold-out artificial intelligence doll Luvabella.
But Irish parents should be warned – this lot could seriously break the bank as Luvabella with its human-like traits costs €114.99 and it’s not even the most expensive toy on the list.
The Cozmo by Anki is the most pricey and will set you back a whopping €239.99. The cheapest toy on the list is the Toilet Trouble Game which costs €19.99.
Commenting on this year’s top toys selection, Sinead Byrne, Joint Head of Marketing at Smyths Toys said: “We are excited about our unique
selection of this year’s hottest toys.
“In addition to some familiar classics including LEGO, NERF and Our Generation, it is great to see some new innovative products feature this year such as Cosmo from Anki and Tyler the Playful Tiger.”
To coincide with their top toys selection, Smyths Toys and Sunway are offering one lucky family the chance to meet Santa Claus and all eight of his reindeer in his Arctic homeland in the North Pole.
The winner and their family will get to meet Santa Claus in addition to experiencing a host of traditional Arctic activities such as a classic sleigh ride pulled by huskies and reindeer.
