UK stores always seem more willing to make a guess on what some of the must have toys for Christmas could be. Without a clear Elmo or Toy Story must have, and in these crazy and weird times. Many stores instead prefer to mention a few trending toys and popular products, so that they can hedge their bets and aim to keep online stock levels good for all.
I do enjoy a browse or visit to John Lewis some stuff is a little higher but the exclusive buys especially on Lego deals only they have, and some great tech price matched, keeps me coming back. And for those friends and family abroad, I can send items internationally without any issues.
