Top Ten for Xmas 1999

 

The BATR measures a select list of members' sales at the end of November to compile this list. The list is only intended as a guide for media purposes and is not a definitive chart - that is done by NPD (01032 355580) and will only be available at the end of January 2000.

BATR chairman, David Fogel says, "Probably because there isn't a strong 'destination toy' this is a very open Christmas!" We have a joint Number One, but some items in the chart could rise or fall, and some could drop out of the frame as the customers make their choice.
