Your favourite Christmas toys from days gone by

Your favourite Christmas toys from days gone by

There was nothing quite like going to bed on Christmas Eve as a child, anxious to see if Santa was bringing you more than a lump of coal.

Year on year, there would be one toy that Kris Kringle just had to bring or Christmas would be cancelled and the world would end.

At least until you opened your other presents and realised they were more than enough to keep you entertained, well at least until Hogmanay.

Those must-have toys might have cost your parents an arm and a leg, not to mention a whole lot of time, but they’ve been etched in your memories forever, judging by the response we got.

Not one of you chose any of the toys that Debenhams listed as their top ten best sellers of the past 50 years, including Cabbage Patch Dolls, Rubiks cube, Monopoly, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures and Buzz Lightyear.

Here's the most popular over the past few decades from the House of Fraser.
