We may still be months away from 25 December but the battle for top toys has already begun. One toy however is expected to be at the top of every child’s wishlist in 2016, the bright green Pepe the Frog Dolly.
Parents are in for a seasonal headache as the must-have Pepe doll, the latest in a long line of Christmas toy crazes, is expected to sell out quickly.
Pepe the Frog is a cartoon frog immensely popular with children and adults alike and is expected to be pivotal in the eventual outcome of the US election. Many toy experts are suggesting that the Pepe doll may be the most popular Christmas toy since the Furby doll in 1998.
“Every child wants a Pepe,” says toy distributor Santa Claus, “he’s at the top of every list. But no-one gets a Pepe unless they are good girls and boys.”
It is believed presidential candidate and Pepe fan Donald Trump has already reserved several Pepe dolls for his grandchildren this Christmas.
