With Christmas fast approaching, the kids are preparing their lists and moms and das are already pondering what toys will be in demand this Christmas. If If your kids are 5 years or older then you have probably already experienced at least one mad dash trying to find the latest trend in toys. In the last few years we have seen parents desperately attempting to get their hands on the last Zhu Zhu pet, or Elmo or whichever toy was on the must have list that particular year. So the lesson learnt is purchase in advance to avoid disappointment. So what will you be buying this year?
For the babies in the house the Go Baby Go Stride to Ride Dino is the cutest walker ever. It also changes into a scooter when your baby gets a bit older. If you prefer to combine musical with adorable and collectible, Sing-A-Ma-Jigs is the answer. If your children love Mickey Mouse then you must get Disney Dance Star Mickey. It is amazing and the cutest thing ever especially when it moon walks.
Almost all little boys love trains and cars, so Lil Zoomers Spinnin’ Sounds Speedway will be an enormous hit with the babies. The cars are the rattlers and the track makes musical sounds to keep them amused for ages. For those aged four and up, the Tomica Hypercity Mega Station Set is on the hot toys for Christmas list this year, as is Imaginext Big Foot the Monster.
If your little boy is over 6 and into action toys, you should look at the Fast Lane Wild Fire Monster Truck. This is a huge toy as it stands over a foot tall and is truly realistic. You should buy a secondan additionalE battery though, as parents are dissatisfied that the first one only lasts 15 minutes when all the features like the noises, lights and flame effects are in use.
For boys that are older, the NERF N-Strike Stampede ECS Blaster is very popular this Christmas. If you dislike guns, Lego is also a top seller. in particular, ones that are Star Wars and Harry Potter themed. The Lego Harry Potter Hagrid’s Hut or Lego Hogwarts have already made the top 20 on the best seller list and are rising quickly. Lego Hogwarts is priced at just under $ 30, but will keep kids aged 8 and over amused for hours, particularly if they are infatuated with Harry Potter.
As you would expect for little girls, dolls and their houses are once again on the best sellers list. This year the top choice for girls aged between 3 and 8 is the Calico Critters Luxury Townhouse. You might have played with this range yourself when you were young. It was originally named the Sylvanian family and is as popular today as it was when you were young. There is an entire range of cute little figures to collect, and even clothes, furniture and cars to accompany the new house.
If it is a doll your little one would like then the Disney Princess and Me series is the one to look at. Additional suggestions are Best Friends Club Ink or Journey Girls. But don’t wait too long as these are certain to sell out prior to Christmas.
Usually, Christmas is a time for board games and Qwirkle and the Settlers of Catan are very much in demand. If you want something fun but somewhat different, then the Lego Minotaurus game is the best one to get this year.
