Action figures are always popular with boys and girls. Hot this year is the WWE’s set of action figures. With these collectible items, kids can re-create their favourite matches from TV or the can even create their own. If you’re not familiar with the popularity of WWE wrestling entertainment, you might be surprised when you see the huge collection of action figures they have available.
Perhaps the best selling of all action figures this year are those from the Transformer movies. These have particular appeal not only from the motion pictures, but because these action figures actually change shapes from people into vehicles. Like most things, there are some adults who are seriously into collecting these.
Toys and Games
Toy retailers are reporting that board games are making resurgence, becoming a popular family pastime (again). This means that the traditional games like Monopoly, Life, Scrabble, Yahtzee, and others will have new life.
You’ve probably heard about the mechanical hamster that is popular this year. This toy rodent is part of the Zhu Zhu Pets line by Cepia. This toy has created a huge end of year demand and is destined to be the top toy of the year.
Learning toys are good for kids, especially for the younger children who aren’t so keen on toy fads. Still, parents are up on the latest and greatest “must haves,” so you should take time out to find out what’s hot. A good place to start is with Vtech whose Nitro Web Notebook product gets young kids safely online for a learning experience that mimics adult behaviour.
May not be trendy, but they might help get children outside playing (and exercising) rather than flopped in front of the television set. Consider traditional items like bicycles and wagons then see what other cool outdoor toys you can find.
