I know it is too early to even think about Christmas (but I am).. BUT I was trying to get a feel for what the hot toys for this year are or will be? It was this time last year that I was in AZ and was hearing about Zhu Zhu pets. Yes, I am nuts for thinking this early out but with 46 people we buy for (including 12 nieces and nephews), you have to start early! So any ideas on what is going to be big? I do know those silly rubber band things seem hot now and would make great stocking stuffers.

I dont think its too early. I usually have to buy for about 28 so I also like to think ahead. I bought a few things already for some of the kids earlier on this year when I can catch sales. Im not sure what the hot toys will be this year so far but I do think that Toysrus usually releases its list of predictions around September? If anyone knows, I would love to know as well. =)

I don't know if I'd get those animal bracelets just yet (they're actually rubber bands, but people wear them..) I only say wait on those because they're a fad and they might not be "cool" come Christmas time, if you know what I mean. ;)

Glad I am not the only one thinking about it. I also do 15 stockings so I am always grabbing small things when I see them! I know what you mean about the rubber band bracelets and waiting to buy them. I actually do hope they are a fad!

I have been hoping each day that this stupid fad will end myself.

Finally found it with the correct spelling.

Sing-A-Ma-Jigs

Get ready to meet The Sing-a-ma-jigs, the new free-spirited, offbeat characters that set off unexpected laughter and excitement with every interaction! The Sing-a-ma-jigs enjoy nothing more than singing together, and just to prove it, they harmonize with each other in perfect pitch every time. The more you collect, the larger the chorus! Their zany looks are unique to them, and when they sing you can't resist when their little mouths open wide for each note! Every Sing-a-ma-jig has three modes of play where they chatter, sing their own song, or sing in harmony with their other Sing-a-ma-jig friends!

The Ipad is the first think on MY list.. LOL! I need one before the kids. I am hoping they come out with some exciting Wii games or something the kids will really be interested in. (and not as hard to get as those dang hamsters last year!)

I think toy story stuff will be huge..especially because Im sure they will have it on dvd for the holidays! Also Imaginext just came out with big foot. Similiar to their huge spike. That could bee a big seller. I def agree with those sing a ma jigs being a hot toy. I am so ready for the holiday season already..teehee!

Ipad would be for me also. My oldest wants a new xbox360. The way he plays, might actually happen... Youngest has no clue yet, he just got a touch for his bday and has a laptop... Hope some good games come out for wii and ds for him....
