It's an important job, but someone's got to do it.

Reliable and hard-working youngsters are being sought by a Sunderland shopping centre to test out the "must have" toys this Christmas.

The chosen few will trial the toys stocked by the centre's leading retailers - and, as a reward, will get a £50 voucher to spend on toys for themselves afterwards.

If you're aged between 5 and 9, love toys and want to help this Christmas, the centre wants you.

To enter, you must send a video of no more than one minute long, showing your favourite toy and explaining why they like it.

If you're one of the winners, you will be invited to a special session at the Bridges to try our this season's hottest toys, and vote for their favourites.

Andy Bradley, centre director, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to find out what youngsters want this Christmas and for them to test out the toys in advance. It also means we get to know what are likely to be the best sellers.

“Hopefully it will also help families decide what to buy for their children, knowing that it’s got the seal of approval from a group of youngsters.”

If you want to take part, email your video to You need to include contact details and parental consent for taking part.

The closing date is November 2.
