Yes those little dancing and singing and usually furry characters that blast out the Christmas hits (or not so festive tunes).

Musical Christmas novelty toys come in all guises from reindeer and mice to singing santas.

Many children cannot resist their engaging looks and quirky singing but some parents dread them making their annual appearance or avoid that shelf in the shop in the first place.

We want to know what you think and for those who have them - we want you to share your household’s festive novelty toys with us.

Send videos of the little creatures running through their routines. Tell us if you love or loath it, how long it’s been in the family, who it belongs to and have you given it a name.

Email your videos as mp4 attachments and don’t forget to include your name, address and daytime contact details. Send to: [email protected]
