Are you ready to start your Christmas shopping for 2009? If you are ready to head out on black Friday or you are ready for online shopping, we have put together a list of the top toys for Christmas 2009.
ZHU ZHU Pets
ZHU ZHU Pets are the #1 toy for Christmas 2009. This small little hamster only costs $9.99, but good luck finding them. Each day the CEPIA company produces 220,000 of them and they are sold out before they are even produced. Shopping for ZHU ZHU Pets online is definitely better than in stores, but be ready to fork over $50 or more for one. So what’s the buzz all about? ZHU ZHU Pets simulate real pets. They require a couple AA batteries to work and they coo and make all sorts of loving noises. They are extremely soft and a lot of fun to play with. With over fifty new ZHU ZHU Pet designs coming out for 2010, these toys are going to be the hit toy for Christmas 2010 as well.
Crayola Crayon Town
If you have a child that absolutely loves to color, this is the toy for you. Crayola Crayon Town has two activities in one. Children can color and they can play at the same time. How does it work? There are different town settings like the zoo, a home, a horse ranch, an airport, and a construction set. They can color the towns before or after they put them together. The towns also include people, cars, and other structures that they can include to make the town come to life. Each town costs $20 and you can find them in practically ever retail store.
Here is another great toy for Christmas 2009. Printies are similar to Build-A-Bear because children can create their own stuffed animal. Head to MyPrinties.com to choose and customize a pet of your child. Once you are done, you simply print out the pet on special Printies Fabric sheets. There will be two sides that need to be printed out and then you need to use stuffing and seal it off to make the stuffed animal. A sewing machine is a great way to seal the stuffed animal but you can also do it with a simple needle and thread. The MyPrinties Design studio is $20 at Toys “R” Us.
Tickle Me Elmo Extreme TMX
Tickle Me Elmo is back and this time he has three different tickle points that cause him to giggle, roll over, and stand up to wait for more tickling. The chin, tummy, and toes are the three tickle points that children will delight in finding as they watch Elmo roll around with laughter. Each time you tickle Elmo, he gives you a different reaction, which makes this toy a lot of fun for more than just a day. It only costs $40 in retail stores to purchase Tickle Me Elmo Extreme TMX, but the high demand of Elmo is pushing the price upwards of $100. Shop online early to make sure you can get an Elmo before everyone else does.
