Amazon has kicked off the festive season by revealing the top ten toys list on amazon.co.uk for Christmas 2021. For the first time, Amazon are celebrating the list with a one-of-a-kind ‘Trending Machine’ which will dispense free toys to passersby in four UK cities and local hospitals.

“It is always an exciting time of year when we release the top ten toys and we hope that this Christmas more families will be able to reunite to enjoy them together,” said Matthew Redfearn, Toys Category Manager at Amazon.co.uk.

“As we look forward to spending more time with loved ones, we at Amazon are doing everything we can to spread a little festive cheer. The Trending Machine has been brought to life to help us deliver smiles and make Christmas extra special, not only for passersby, but also for children in hospitals over Christmas.”

Rachel Riley tests the ‘Trending Machine’

The ‘Trending Machine’ launched today in London’s Southbank, where TV presenter Rachel Riley and her daughter Maven were first to try it out. Visitors to Southbank today will be in with a chance of walking away with one of this year’s must-have Christmas toys, and then the Top Ten Toys ‘Trending Machine’ will move on to three more cities. The ‘Trending Machine’ will also be visiting local hospitals to share some early festive cheer with patients, including Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and University College Hospital.
