If you've ever wanted to know what it feels like to compete for the Glitterball trophy then the new Strictly Come Dancing board game will take you as close as possible to the action.

The Strictly Come Dancing Board Game, which is out now, is one of Amazon's top 10 picks for Christmas toys this year.

Made for groups of three to six players, the game pairs players with a pro-dancer where they'll go on a journey answering trivia questions, completing challenges and even taking part in mini dance-offs.

The team that make it to the game's 'live final show', where they can chose between performing a dance to one of the six tunes on the revolving glitterball speaker, or taking on the finger Cha Cha challenge.

The opposing teams will then vote, and the score will be given by the voice of actual Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood!

Another of Amazon's top picks is the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Set.

With this, fans will be able to build the Hogwarts Express train set and Platform 9¾, no magic necessary.

The set features a railway bridge with a clock and steps leading to Platform 9¾, a moving brick wall entrance, Wanted poster and Daily Prophet newspapers, plus a four-seater carriage, a removable side panel and roof as well as a Trolley Witch with sweets trolley.

If that's not enough, the set also includes mini-figures of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Remus Lupin, as well as a Dementor and Scabbers the rat, so you can recreate fantasy scenes from the Harry Potter movies.
