Will You Be Buying the "It" Toy This Year?

Will You Be Buying the "It" Toy This Year?

Every year there seems to be one toy that parents will get in a frenzy over to get for their tots. Remember the Tickle Me Elmo or the Nintendo Wii for 2007? This year Elmo is hot again with Elmo Live. This lifelike doll is flying off the shelves this holiday season. Will you be buying it?

No, but not because it's over-priced, but because it's not really age appropriate for my son. He's too young to care about that stuff. I'll probably buy him some wood block that he'll end up throwing around the house lol and a small fish tank with a pretty fish or two. He loves watching them at our friends house so I thought we'd get one for home. :)

No. I had no idea it was the hot toy this year either. But the other Elmos drove me nucking futs so I doubt I'll ever buy another.

That thing would drive me insane. In general we don't do toys that require batteries--my husband and I would much rather encourage using your imagination.

The big thing we got our daughter was the Dora dollhouse. Way overpriced, but I think it's something she'll play with for awhile. And hey I guess I've done my part for the economy.

I bought this last month online during a prebuy sale. My daughter saw it in the store last week and didn't want to put it down! So I think she will love it!
