It’s June so we are obviously thinking about what to buy the kids at Christmas, right?

Argos has released a list of the most highly anticipated toys for 2018, including fantasy, technology, construction and discovery.

The list features 13 new and exciting toys that are very likely to be on your child’s list to Santa this year.

According to Argos, 2018 is the "year of the unicorn" with four toys based on the mythical steed included on its list this year, from the My Lovely Unicorn Electric Ride-On to the quirkier Poopsie unicorn who poos glitter.

Juliet Ward, head of toy buying at Argos, said: "The list shows how toys are continuing to progress with interactive items amongst the most popular.

"We're also seeing the modernisation of more classic and traditional toys resulting in a varied and extensive list - everything from Boxer the mischievous robot to the Tiny Treasures Doll which looks and smells just like a real baby.

"Social media trends are influencing toys more than ever before, such as the unicorn craze which has inspired great products like the Vtech Fantasy Unicorn and the My Lovely Unicorn Electric Ride-On.

"The pocket-money-friendly collectibles craze also continues to evolve and succeed with LOL Surprise, Fingerlings and the Treasure X 3-Pack Chest all must-have toys for this year."
