From the Game Boy to the Furby, here are some sell out toys from Christmas’s past.
We all remember that one toy that we really wanted and asked Santa for, whether it was Star Wars toys, a Furby or Game Boy. It feels like most years there is a ‘must have’ toy, which sells out in record time. From the 1980s Cabbage Patch craze that inspired the Christmas film ‘Jingle All the Way’ to more recent additions, here we take a look at some of the most popular toys that we really wanted for Christmas thanks to data from Argos.
