Christmas Comes Early: LeapPad2 Backed For Xmas Top Slot
A leading supermarket has been criticised for having a Santa's Grotto already, but Christmas is never too far away and William Hill are also getting in the festive spirit.
Hills are betting on what will be the most asked for present by the children on Santa's knee. Hot on the back of last year's best selling Kidizoom camera, Hills think technology will be at the top of every child's wishlist and make the Leap Pad 2 their 3/1 favourite.
Cabbage Patch Kids and Subbuteo feature in Hamley's top toys list at 5/1 and 20/1 respectively. Also traditional favourites, Mickey Mouse and Barbie also feature at 9/1 and 12/1.
"There are a number of runners and riders for this year's Christmas number one toy, but we think the updated and more streamlined LeapPad2 will be top of every young child's wishlist," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
