Now that it’s fall and school has started back it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. Did you know it’s now less than 3 months away? I can’t believe it will be here so soon. I personally like to start my Christmas shopping early. I don’t like to wait till it’s December and then scramble to get all my gifts bought. Now that I’m thinking Christmas, it’s time to get a game plan on.
I researched the top “hot toys” for the year. I think it’s fun to see what’s predicted to be popular among the kids. Here’s the list of top toys:
Nintendo 3DS~ available in aqua blue, cosmo black, and flame red. Retails for $169 – $195 on Amazon
Beyblades~ come in a wide variety from individual “tops” to complete sets.

If you see something on this list that you’ve thought about getting you may consider purchasing it before the Christmas Rush begins. These items will be the first to sell out since they’re on the hot list.
