Top Christmas Toys 2013

Over at Top Ten Christmas Ideas we are reviewing this year’s top selling toys for Christmas 2013. The holiday season will be upon us before we know it and it is time to start to shop. The hot selling toys tend to sell out early.

Tablets for Kids

Part of today’s society is tablets for adults, for teens, for children, and even for toddlers. Children want to emulate their adults and when they see Mom and Dad using their cell phones, their tablets, and their computers they want to be included. The toy manufactures have come up with some very clever copies of these devices.

Construction Toys

Under most Christmas trees, you will find a set of Lego. This has been one of the most enduring construction items for generations. Every year Lego brings out new sets based on popular events. Several years ago they developed sets that were colored to appeal to girls. As well as having pink and turquoise bricks the sets were themed around girl’s interests. For this year you will find the following hot selling Lego sets:
For Boys: Lego Chima – The Lion CHI Temple
For Girls: Lego Friends Dolphin Cruiser

Popular Characters

The toy manufactures are quick to pick up on all the popular characters to which children are exposed. The prime source of these figures is usually TV shows or movies. As a result there are stuffed animals, interactive figures, and games, all based on these shows. For Christmas 2013 the top selling popular figures are:
Big Hugs Elmo
Sofia the First talking sofia and Animal Friends
Doc McStuffins
Despicable Me 2

Active Toys

I think that we are all looking for ways to make sure that our children are very active. Playing outside is a very important part of child development and in this day of TV, tablets, computers, etc we all need to have equipment available for outdoor use. Although so far the only thing that is showing up on the most want toy Christmas 2013 is a Razor Crazy Cart, we think that some of the more traditional items should be considered. To see our reviews of these outdoor items check out:
Razor Crazy Cart
Cozy Coupe
Diamondback Octane 20 Mountain Bike
Mongoose Girls Maxim Full Suspension Bike
Razor Kick Scooters
Radio Flyer Classic Dual Deck Tricycle

For Girls

How many different dolls are on the market? Every year there are new ones and Christmas 2013 is no different. This year one of the most sought after doll is the Flutterbye Flying Fairy. For our review of this flying magic check here:

For Boys

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 Blaster is the hot selling toy for boys. It seems it appeals to their dads too.

Top Holiday Toy List 2013
In making decisions for your children this year it is desirable if possible to give gifts that will be lasting. In the past we have found some of the most touted toys are one use wonders. They are cute and they catch the imagination of the child but they are quickly discarded. As you shop keep this in mind.
Shop early, as supplies are limited. We have become great fans of buying at Amazon.com. We find they often have stock when other sources are sold out, many items are shipped free, and their customer service is terrific.
