Every year there are a few toys that everyone must have, and this year is no different. Some of them are hot toys, that everyone just has to have, and some of them are just new and cool. Here’s our list of the top 10 toys for Christmas this year.
- Zhu Zhu Pets. By far the hottest Christmas toy this year. Zhu Zhu Pets are little battery operated hamsters that run around on the floor propelled by tiny wheels. Not only that, but they have a "loving mode" that allows kids to hold them and love them up, while the Zhu Zhu Pet coos and chatters back to them. Definitely the toy to have this Christmas.
- iCarly toys. iCarly is a mega-popular TV show that the kids just love. If you’ve got a pre-teen or teenage girl, you’re going to want to check out iCarly toys. Amazon.com is a great place to find iCarly toys. They have everything from CD’s, books and DVD’s to lunch boxes, sheet sets, and action figure dolls.
- Wii Sports Resort. If you’re shopping for anyone with a Wii (which is about half the people in the world!) you might want to check out Wii Sports Resort. The deluxe version of this game comes with 2 Wii motion plus adapters, which clip to the Wii remote and make it much more sensitive and accurate when you’re playing certain games. In addition, you’re going to want to get the 8-in-1 Sports Pack to go along with it.
- Fisher Price Smart Fit. The Smart Fit Playground is an all-in-one plug and play activity pad that encourages children to stay physically active while they learn. Kids can walk, run, jump and stomp while playing up to 8 different learning games and races. The Smart Fit Playground teaches letters, numbers, shapes, colors and more through active play. Lots of fun, especially if Mom has Wii Fit.
- Transformer Revenge of the Fallen Toys. For pre-teen boys that like bionichles and legos, Transformer Revenge of the Fallen Toys are sure to be a hit. These toys are mainly action figures and vehicles featured in the popular movie.
- Pictureka. Find it fast, find it first! Pictureka is the exciting game of visual hide and seek. Players compete to collect the most mission cards to win the game. Great for the whole family, and kids as young as six can play with older kids and parents.

- Leapfrog Zippity High-Energy Learning System. If your 3 to 5 year old likes to watch you workout to Wii Fit or watch your older daughter dance to Dance-Dance Revolution, this might be a great present for him or her. It’s a mat with a bopper that hooks to the TV and lets them stomp, swing, bop and march, driving the learning with their arms and legs. The Leapfrog Zippity High-Energy Learning System includes 8 built-in games featuring the popular Playhouse Disney characters. Lots of fun!
