Historic London toy store Hamleys unveiled its top 10 gift picks for children this Christmas. Its list includes a magic set, a whipped cream pie in the face game, a dancing robot, a remote controlled Darth Vader, flying Star Wars drones and a child-sized BMW. SOUNDBITE: Natalie Riley, Hamleys' senior buyer, saying (English): "The top 10 this year is really led by social interaction. What we're really loving is that it is about spending quality time with your family and friends rather than potentially having your head in the screen, being overrun by modern technology. It's great that tech complements the product but this time it is about good old fun, which we love." The store says it's expecting a bumper year with the weak pound attracting high-spending customers. Hamleys, where Queen Elizabeth bought toys for her children, opened its first toy shop in 1760 and is now in 23 countries around the world.
