The independent toy retailer says this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for toy fans to get their hands on and play with 10 of this year’s most sought-after toys.

The fun toy testing session will take place during an out-of-hours, exclusive in-store experience at the toyshop’s Derbion store on the morning of Saturday, December 9, 2023.

After testing a selection of this year’s most-wanted Christmas toys, the winners will be tasked with completing a festive form to provide their expert opinion on each product for Santa, before he delivers thousands of toys to children across the world on Christmas Eve. 

The Entertainer’s elves will then hand deliver the valuable feedback to the North Pole and as a thank you for the toy testers' expertise, Father Christmas will send a personal reply to them both.

As well as winning the opportunity to become Santa’s toy tester, the lucky children will also receive a £50 gift card to spend in-store or online.

They will also be gifted a jam-packed festive goodie bag, which will feature a variety of toys that are set to be at the top of every child’s wish list this Christmas.

Santa's trusted toy testers!

Vikky Congiu, manager at The Entertainer’s Derbion store said: “Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. We are thrilled to be launching this incredible opportunity for two children from Derby to become Santa’s very own trusted toy testers.

“At The Entertainer, we’re committed to spreading festive cheer and creating special memories. What’s more special than helping Father Christmas choose the perfect toys for children around the world?
