A mini-kitchen has been tipped by John Lewis to be its number one best selling toy this Christmas.
Retailing at £50, the John-Lewis branded wooden kitchen features an oven and hob and comes with two pots and pans, utensils and a tea towel.
The department store chain said: “The plethora of celebrity chefs has captured children’s culinary imaginations. We predict the Mini Kitchen to be a best seller, following last year’s record sales of the Big Kitchen.
“The Mini Kitchen is already proving to be a must-have for both young boys and girls who dream of being the next Nigella or Jamie, so expect some little hands helping with the turkey on Christmas day this year!”
The other predicted top four gifts are: John Lewis Spy Watch and Pen Set, Doc Mcstuffins doctors set, LEGO Creator Winter Village Cottage and Christmas Furby.
Ian Ellis, toy buyer at John Lewis said: “This year the toys assortment at John Lewis is bigger and better. With Furbys selling out in record time last year, we expect these furry friends to be another huge hit with parents and children.
“Taking tips from Britain’s favourite television shows such as ‘Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals’, the next generation are inspired to recreate these professions at home with creative and innovative play.”
