This Year’s Christmas Toys – level 2

12-10-2018 15:00

A London toy store is predicting popular Christmas toys for this year with many types of toys.

Fuggler is a doll with an unusual head and teeth; kids like its imperfection theme. Gravitrax is a building toy that teaches about building tracks. Monopoly has a version of its board game for cheaters.

These toys are from £8 to £80 and some British parents spend over £150 on their children at Christmas.

Difficult words: predict (to try to tell what will happen), imperfection (when something is not perfect), theme (the main idea about something), cheater (a person who cheats – does not play fair).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
