Hot Christmas 2008 Toys

Today I’ll present this year’s hottest toys. Some of these toys are expected to make it to many children’s Christmas Wish Lists. Instead of making up the list I am using Toys R Us’s “Fabulous 15” Hot Holiday Toys since they obviously have more experience in that field. I linked to these toys so you can have an idea of what they look like. I don’t necessary suggest you buy them from Toys R Us, I’m simply linking to Toys R Us for you to get an idea of what these toys are.

Following are the Toys”R”Us “Fabulous 15,” representing the best new toys of the holiday season (listed in alphabetical order):

50’s Diner from Step2 – $169.9

    You can also visit http://www.todaysparent.com for the top toys list of 2008, its less biased since they don’t own the toy store.

    Chapters has a nice list as well 🙂

    Here’s the link for the Circus Tent from Chapters/Indigo, it’s the only chain store that sells Playmobil in Canada as far as I know…

    Health Canada has recalled thousands more toys that a recent Toronto Star investigation found contain dangerous levels of lead.

    The recall includes 7,000 toy guns and 35,000 packages of charms that snap into popular Croc shoes. Both products were sold in dollar stores nationwide.
