Nouman Qureshi, Toys Category Manager at eBay UK, says: "With last Christmas not going ahead as planned, this year, customers are looking to spoil their loved ones more than ever. And with less than 100 days to go, we encourage everyone to plan ahead to ensure a stress-free festive season ahead."

Nouman goes on to add, "It's cars which are racing to the top of the toy charts this year given how versatile they are and they have such wonderfully immense playing power.

"We predict Hot Wheels and Scaletrix will make a comeback, alongside LEGO technic kits of legendary models and race cars which are speeding into wishlists. Diecast models of vehicles from the upcoming 25th Bond film will also prove a hit with the kids."

With that said, it's time to start planning for your family celebration. Here are 12 of the best toys as predicted by eBay UK.
