This year's Christmas stockings are set to brim with state-of-the-art technology which will have even the most savvy of parents reaching for the instructions, according to the annual Top Ten Toys list predicted by Hamleys. The London store's must-haves range from a doll named Cayla who uses speech-to-text Google software to look up answers to questions online, to the Doh Vinci 3D Deluxe Styler which mimics the principles of 3D printing. Here, we take a look at what Hamleys expect will be their top sellers this festive season.

Jayla Silva plays with a My Friend Cayla. Retailling at 75, Cayla can answer questions ranging from her likes and dislikes to general knowledge and sports results, thankfully only after she has been synced with a smartphone or tablet. Suitable for children aged four and over, she features Google's SafeSearch technology meaning there will be no experimenting with "bad words" and unsuitable content!
