With Christmas just around the corner, Black Friday weekend is the perfect time to pick up some bargain presents.

With thousands of deals across some of the top online toy retailers, you’re sure to find something to suit everyone’s Christmas list (as long as it’s not a Hatchimal…)

This year's event will take place on Friday 24 November and Cyber Monday will follow on Monday 27 November. However, people can expect deals over the course of several days in what is set to be the biggest shopping event of the year - particularly at retailers such as Amazon, Currys and Argos.

Below we've taken a look at some of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday toy deals from 2016.
