Parents will need to start saving now as the cheapest item on the list is £33 for a flamingo toy that sits on its own toilet – yep, you read that right.

We’ve taken a closer look at the toys to see if the prices are as good as they seem.

Remember, when comparing costs, sites such as Pricespy.co.uk and Google Shopping will be able to tell you if you can buy goods cheaper elsewhere.

Meanwhile, price monitoring site PriceHistory.co.uk will be able to let you know if Argos has ever stocked the same toys for less to give you an indication of when is the best time to buy.

The toys that have already launched are available to buy in store and online – you can find your nearest branch on the Argos website.

If you’re ordering online, you’ll need to factor in delivery charges too.

It costs £3.95 for a fast track same day delivery option, or you can click and collect in store for free.

Here’s what Argos is recommending for your kids this Christmas:
