Every holiday season, certain toys become the hot toys for Christmas, and, of course, this year is no different from the rest. You may have seen the following toys on your kids' wish lists this Christmas, but if you haven't, maybe you'll get some gift inspiration from these hot toys for Christmas.
At the top of my four-year-old son's wish list is this hot toy for Christmas, the Mattel Matchbox Stinky The Garbage Truck
. The newest addition to the Matchbox Big Rig Buddies, Stinky talks, tells jokes, sings, eats, and even exercises. Similar to Rocky the Robot Truck
, Stinky has over 90 funny phrases and sounds. Featuring sound activation, motion sensor, direction sensor, container sensor, belly sensor, speakers, and motorized movement, Stinky will quickly become your child's best friend as he encourages cooperative play and friendship-building skills. Not only is Stinky a talking and moving friend, but he can also function as a free-wheeling garbage truck for push-around play. Stinky is a ton of fun for your kids to play with, but remember, it makes a lot of noise, so be prepared to hear lots from Stinky if you buy this hot toy for Christmas.
Another hot toy for Christmas, the Fisher-Price Sing-A-Ma-Jigs
are cuddly offbeat singing machines, and they love nothing more than singing together. Collect as many Sing-A-Ma-Jigs as you can for a giant chorus of harmonizing dolls that will set off lots of excitement and laughter every time they open their mouths. Since these dolls are more fun in a group, buying a bundle of several Sing-A-Ma-Jigs will save you a bit of money rather than buying them individually. With three modes of play, Sing-A-Ma-Jigs can chatter, sing in harmony, or sing their own songs, such as "It's Raining, It's Pouring" and "Oh, Susanna."
You can even find educational toys among the hot toys for Christmas, like the VTech MobiGo Touch Learning System
. Making learning fun, kids learn about colors, shapes, spelling, math, logic, and more as they play games featuring their favorite characters like Shrek, the Disney Princesses, Dora, and Lightning McQueen. With a touch-activated screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, your kids can tap, flick, drag, or pat their way through activities. Included with the system is one game, and you can purchase other games separately such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
, Super Hero Squad
, and Ben Ten Ultimate
for about $20 a game.
While looking through hot toys for Christmas for girls, my favorite pick are the Monster High dolls, like the ones in this Monster High Fashion Doll Two-Pack Value Bundle
. The latest craze in dolls, the Monster High franchise includes books by Lisi Harrison, a Nickelodeon TV special, and online webisodes. Set in a fictional high school where the entire student body and staff are made up of monsters and ghouls from various popular monster fiction, this value bundle includes two dolls of your choice from the four main characters: Draculaura, Clawdeen Wolf, Frankie Stein, and Lagoona Blue. Each doll can be posed in many different ways since they are fully articulated.
