Back To The Future Monopoly

www.firebox.com £34.99; www.amazon.co.uk from £29.99

You can get every type of Monopoly imaginable, from Game Of Thrones to Spongebob Squarepants, but top of our Christmas list this year is the Back To The Future version. Instead of Chance and Community Chest cards, you get Past and Future ones, and the places on the board encompass all the sites Marty McFly visited in the movies, from Doc’s Lab to the Clock Tower and Café 80s. Best of all, the pieces include the DeLorean and Marty’s famous self-tying sneaker!

Fantastic Beasts Pop Vinyl: Niffler

www.forbiddenplanet.com £10.99

Funko’s Pop Vinyl characters are all cute and collectable, but this Christmas’s must have for fans of JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is surely the adorable Niffler. Though a cute little Newt Scarmander would be nice, too…

Sing Soundtrack

www.amazon.co.uk £13.99

You won’t be able to see Sing the movie until it comes to cinemas on January 27th in the UK (December 21st in US), but the soundtrack is well worth buying in advance for some musical deliciousness. It’s released on December 9th in the UK, and December 16th in the US and features songs performed by stars Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Tori Kelly, and Taron Egerton.

Christmas DVDs

www.amazon.co.uk, prices vary

There have been some terrific movies in 2016 that are now on DVD and would make perfect gifts, from Kung Fu Panda 3 to Zootropolis, Eddie The Eagle, The Jungle Book and Finding Dory and you can find reviews of all of them at www.movies4kids.co.uk. If you have little ones in the house already counting the days until Santa comes, treat them to an early DVD treat – Danger Mouse Merry Christmouse, a DVD and digital download featuring seven episodes from the new Danger Mouse animated series, including a Christmas double episode called The Snowman Cometh.

Poppy Styling Troll

www.argos.co.uk £29.99

Little fans of the movie Trolls will love this Poppy doll that comes with hair combs and accessories so you can style her pink hair. And if you have a little one who is completely in love with Poppy, you can also get slippers, bedding, pyjamas and even in-line skates with her image on.

Moana Singing And Light Up Snow Globe

www.disneystore.co.uk £65

Disney Animation’s latest movie Moana arrives in cinemas on December 2nd with a host of toys including singing Moana and Maui dolls (we quite like the idea of squeezing The Rock in the belly and hearing him sing), cuddly toys and mugs. For collectors, however, the must-have tie-in is the Moana snow globe, featuring Moana, Maui, Pua the pig and chicken Hei Hei. The water lights up and the globe plays the song ‘We Know The Way’.

 

Prices correct at time of going to press.

For US readers, all items except Danger Mouse DVD are available for sale via Amazon.com.
