Amazon reveals its top 12 toys for Christmas including a Star Wars baby Yoda and Present Pets

AMAZON has revealed its top 12 must-have toys for Christmas, including a Star Wars Baby Yoda doll and Present Pets.

Prices start at a reasonable £16 for a family game of Uno Showdown and range up to a hefty £119.99 for a Lego Star Wars set.

We've compared the current prices to other retailers to see if you can get a better deal elsewhere – and in some cases we found you can.

It's worth keeping an eye out on Amazon though because prices may drop on the retailer's Prime Day, which this year takes place from October 13 to October 14.

To take advantage of the discounts you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member, which costs £79 a year or £7.99 a month.

Before splashing your cash on these toys, remember to check sites such as Price Spy and Idealo to find out if you can buy items cheaper at another store.

Free online price trackers like Price History and CamelCamelCamel will also give you an idea of whether you can save cash by buying it later in the year.

Here are the top toys Amazon reckons your children will want under the tree this year, in price order starting with the cheapest. 

Uno Showdown

  • £16 – buy now

Everyone knows the rules, but the showdown version sets a timer for when you have to make your move, making the game harder, faster and whole lot more fun.

It's the cheapest item on Amazon's Christmas list and we couldn't finder the game being sold for less anywhere else.

The next best offer was £19.98 from Very, The Hut and Smyths.

Playmobil Back to the Future DeLorean

  • £39.99 – buy now

Take a trip back to the 1950s with Doc's DeLorean, which comes with 64 pieces for you to put together yourself.

The wheels fold in and the doors actually open, and it comes with a Marty McFly and Doc figurine to sit in the time machine.

You won't find the toy cheaper anywhere else – it's £10 more expensive at Very and JD Williams where it costs £49.99.
