The Harry Potter Colouring Book (Studio Press) has made it into the top 10 "most wished for presents of the year", according to Amazon.co.uk.

The 10 items is a reflection of how frequently products available from the online retailer appeared on customers' "Wish Lists" since 1st October 2015.

It shows Amazon shoppers are also looking forward to new release films, videogames, tablets and streaming media players this Christmas, with the most-wanted present topping the Amazon "Wish List" chart the DVD Jurassic World.

The Harry Potter Colouring Book, which sold more than 50,000 copies in its first two weeks and sold out on Amazon appeared at number six.

“Wish Lists offer a real-time insight into what people up and down the country would like to receive on Christmas morning,” said Alison Forrestal, media director at Amazon.co.uk. “This year, blockbuster film releases such as Jurassic World and Inside Out are hotly anticipated and it seems you also can’t go wrong with colouring books, family games and kitchen gadgets.”
