AW15 range highlights:

TECHNOLOGY

3D OLED TVs and wearable technology are expected to capture the imagination of gadget geeks this year.  The LG Smart 3D OLED TV is the perfect present for sport and movie lovers. The four colour pixel technology provides excellent blur-free motion that will totally immerse viewers in the action.

Irish people’s obsession with wearable technology continues to go from strength-to-strength with several key models on the market. Key must-haves include the Jawbone Up 3 for fitness fanatics with its multi-sensor technology; the FitBit Charge HR for its heart rate monitoring for everyday use, and the Withings Activite Pop Blue for its stylish look and smartphone interaction.

Much-loved technology brands Bush and Alba, exclusively available at Argos, have been updated for 2015 to help people get the most out of everyday technology. The Bush Eluma 10” 32GB Tablet & Keyboard is tipped to be a best-seller as people turn to devices that can offer work and pleasure on the go, while bargain hunters will love the Alba 2.8” mobile phone and Alba 7” Tablet.

TOYS

Top toys for Christmas this year are dominated by the big and small screen.  From Sing-A-Long Elsa, star of the mega hit Frozen, to an interactive Tracy Island from the newly re-mastered Thunderbirds, and Tumbling Stuart toy inspired by blockbuster movie Minions.

Chad Valley’s DesignaFriend doll range, exclusive to Argos, is expected to prove popular with youngsters, offering fashion-led accessories for five different dolls – each with their own personality.  Watch out for the Chad Valley DesignaFriend Wardrobe Chest, which has four different doll outfits – an essential gift for any doll lover.

Other hot toys include the Chad Valley 3 Storey Summer Winter Doll’s House, which comes complete with ten pieces of wooden furniture and the Chad Valley Wooden Farm Set, which comes with 50 pieces including a barn, shed and lots of animals.

Must-have family board games for Christmas include Loupin Louie, packed with chicken-chasing fun, and Pie Face² – which adults will love just as much as the kids!

VIDEO GAMING

With no new consoles on the horizon just yet, the focus is all on game play this Christmas. Lego Dimensions is set to catch the imagination of gamers across all console formats as they get to bring their Lego characters to life on the screen. Star Wars Battlefront is also set to take off alongside the film release later this year, and Guitar Hero Live makes a return after a five year absence.
