    Most Wanted / Top Children's Toys this Christmas?

    Has the list for the predicted most popular / most wanted children's Christmas 2009 toys been released yet?

    I have been trying to find it for a work colleague for the last couple of days but am having no luck!

    Just had a look at them, took me a while to work out that it is for a toy hamster and not a real one! I have never seen or heard of them before but Play.com seem to have loads.

    I saw the trailer for Toy Story 3D the other week and it looks brilliant - I am definitely seeing it!

    I was in Tesco earlier and they have loads of Toy Story stuff in at the moment.

    hannah montana, must be up near the top.

    Same here, they seem a bit weird and are definitely a fad but like you say, if they are must haves then everyone will want them.

    I was just thinking the same, especially the one in the hamster ball.

    BTW love you Avi, is it one of your cats? I have been looking for a Scottish Fold but they seem very hard to get hold of.

    Dam you, now I really want a Go Go Hamster - why I don't know......

    I have just reserved four at my local Argos - I want one of each colour (for my cats, honest) but Argos don't state which colour you get - boo!

    the peppa pig princess stuff will prob be big too as theres a new dvd out next month with new episodes on based on all the new toys.

    i predict a sad face xmas morning! LOLL

    ( i bet i will end up getting him a laptop!!, my intentions are good though and im going to try and stick to my guns..... ohh i feel such a bad mummy ! lol)

    Stick to your guns hun.
    Much better for him to be in the fresh air rather than sat in front of a laptop doing his eyes in

    havin said that, my son wants a laptop .... although he turned 17 on Wednesday so his attention has now turned to a car!!!!
    God help me :whistling:

    Aww don't feel bad hun...

    Remember when we were kids though, we got home from school just to dump stuff, grab food and to run outside to play.. My bike was part of my social life... lol

    So different for kids now, they plug in and tune out and that's where their head is.

    I reckon one more generation and babies will be born with an a/c connection straight into their cerebral cortex ;-)

    lmao!

    Betcha help him too.

    My deal to my son was If i buy the car he has to cover the insurance...

    You shoulda seen his face when he figured out how much the insurance would cost for the car he wanted :w00t:

    LOL, good on ya

    Unfortunately mine's wised up to the cost of insurance.
    His latest "brainwave" was that i could get the car (which he hasn't bought ... infact not even had a lesson yet) insured in MY name and have him as a named driver :w00t:

    The old ones are the best aren't they lol ;-)

    [QUOTE=ClarityofMind;6401619]lmao!

    Betcha help him too. QUOTE]

    Well im in 2 minds really.
    I've told him (numerous times according to him lol), that when i was at school/college, i was working 3 nights a week in Safeways and all day saturday.
    This meant that i could pay for ALL my driving lessons, test, car AND insurance myself. Something which i am still quite proud of now ... especially when i can quote that to him when he starts asking for lessons and cars lol.

    Ive said to him, i'm not gonna help him (and he shouldn't even think about it), until he gets a JOB.

    To be fair, he's doing a national diploma in football at college and footy does take up a lot of his time, traing and playing for his team) but his "full time" course consists of 15 hours a week so my argument is that leaves him plenty of time to get a job and work

    lol, Bless him.

    it's so much fun watching them figure these things out isnt it

    As parents of teens we have to take our enjoyment where we can get it ;-)

    I used the "get a job first" line too... besides i figured the longer i kept him off the road the safer he'd be, just being that liddle bit older and more patient.... To be fair he did get the job and then paid for all his own lessons, I figured he'd want a car for his birthday in August but he wanted a list of stuff from ebuyer so he got all that instead

    Wicked parent I am lol
