What are 2022’s most popular toys?

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Another year, another Pokemon game! This year it’s Scarlet and Violet, two of the most anticipated games in the series in recent years. You might be thinking, what’s the difference between Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? As always, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are basically the same game, only with slight differences in what Pokemon and characters you interact with throughout the game. But the gameplay is virtually all the same, so unless your child is a hardcore Pokemon fan we’re sure they’ll not mind too much which colour they get. But… it’s always better to sneakily ask them first. Just in case.
