Toy Recommendations for Christmas 2010

Here are some of the newst, hottest toys for your Christmas/Hannukkah/Kwaanzaa/post-Festivus Feats of Strength shopping pleasure.


LEGO Harry Potter Sets– This is one I’ve personally invested in, and I have to say that the Hogwart’s Castle is absolutely one of the best LEGO playsets ever released.  And this is coming from a woman whose home contains probably a million LEGO pieces.  The smaller ones are wonderful, too.  Get ’em before they’re gone, because this is most likely the last time they’ll be produced.


XBOX 360 Kinect– Taking the Wii motion-sensing gameplay to the next level.  No equipment required, just step in front of the sensor and start playing!


Fisher Price Sing-a-ma-jigs This little plush toy sings it’s own song, and then when put next to other Sing-a-ma-jigs, they create great songs together.


Zhu-Zhu pets and accessories– These little guys are still going strong from last year, and if you’ve already got some, then it’s all about the playhouses, fun balls, and salons.  Yes, salons.


Fisher Price Dance Star Mickey– What would the holiday season be without some sort of dancing, animatronic figure?  This year Mickey is your go-to guy.


Paper Jamz musical instruments– Circuits embedded in paper create musical instruments with no strings needed.


LeapFrog Leapster Explorer– Before he got his DSi, my son absolutely loved his Leapster.  This is the next generation, and sure to be better than the original.


Nerf and Strike Stampede ECS– If your child takes his neighborhood Nerf gun wars as seriously as mine does, this one is for you.


Pillow Pets– Cute, soft, snuggly.  What’s not to like?


Squinkies– Haven’t heard of these teensy-sized toys and their fun dispensers?  I assure you your daughter has.

    How wrong is it that I am thinking of getting the Lego Hogwarts for myself? Hmmm…. My husband has all of the Lego Star Wars sets that were released with Episode I, I think I can justify a Hogwarts for me. It’s even got a Lego Basilisk fang!!!

    (I was denied Legos as a child, because when I was in hte prime Lego phase, my brother was in the prime swallow-anything-smaller-than-a-quarter phase. I’ve not recovered.)

    The Munchkin got Hogwarts Castle for his birthday, and it is the first set he has yet to dismantle. Usually he will build it to specs, and then rip it apart and do other stuff with it, but I have a feeling this will stay as is for a very long time. It is totally awesome and detailed and worth every penny.

    I say go for it!
