Do you need ideas for Great Christmas Toys and Games? 

If you are looking for good ideas for children's Christmas gifts and toys, then today's announcement from the Toy Retailer's Association may help you along.  Gadgets and techno toys are expected to feature highly on every child's Christmas List - many inspired by the small and big screen such as the Transformers Movie and Dr Who. 

From their list we've already had a chance to review Eternity II and Flytech Dragonfly and we'll be bringing you more toy and game reviews in the run up to Christmas. 

From the Toy Retailer's Association predictions of this year's Christmas best-sellers, here are the gadgets and games that look most interesting:

  • Are You Smarter Than a 10 Year Old? (Hasbro RRP £19.99) A board game based on the Noel Edmonds TV programme
  • Doctor Who Dalek Sec Hybrid Voice Changer Mask (Character Options  RRP £29.95)
  • Golden Balls  (Vivid Imaginations RRP £19.99) - board game
  • Puppy Grows and Knows Your Name (Mattel RRP £44.99)
  • Transformers Movie Leader: Optimus Prime (Hasbro RRP £39.99)
  • Creator - Monster Dino (Lego RRP £69.95)

  • Monopoly Here & Now UK Edition (Hasbro RRP £19.99)
  • Rubiks Revo (Drummond Park RRP £14.99)

Of course, the Toy Retailers Association don't have the last say on the best kids gadgets and games out there, so we'll be reviewing lots of others.

With so many recalls this holiday season make sure you pick a great toy or kit that will inspire your preschooler. Loving2Learn kits are teacher approved and kids love them because they are easy to use with the pop in  DVD's and children feel successful.  Pick from Sounds and Symbols of the ABC's Kit, Writing the ABC's Kit, and  the Math Mania kit. Go directly to www.loving2learn.com and check out these great and safe kits!

Another gift idea: TyGirlz! They are the new toy from the makers of the Beanie Baby, each with their own unique style and personality. I work with Ty Inc., and it looks like the Girlz will be a hit this holiday season. You can meet all of the dolls at www.tygirlz.com.
