Find the perfect present for the Sega fan in your life with the best Sonic The Hedgehog toys of the year!
Sonic fever has gripped the world once again with the arrival of the Sonic the Hedgehog film back in 2020 and the Sonic 30th Anniversary celebrations.
Ah, who am I kidding. Sonic has been a tour de force ever since he came onto the scene back in 1991. The guy’s a hero and has rocked the video game world on pretty much every console going.

And, he’s the fastest character ever too.
