Christmas Toy Ideas

With so many different toys out there to choose from, those letters to Santa can be quite useful in giving you an idea what the kids might be hoping for. If however, you’re stuck for Christmas ideas because you haven’t been told to tell Santa what’s at the top of your child’s wish list this year, then here is some festive inspiration based on the 2009 dream toys list (from the Toy retailer association).

GO GO Pets Hamsters, Character Options (RRP £9.99 play.com)

Go go pets are excellent. They are small, fury, realistic looking hamsters that have been given artificial intelligence so that they squeak and move around their habitat. Each hamster has it’s own unique personality and sounds. When you team one of the hamsters up with a Go Go Hamster accessory they will instinctively know if it’s a hamster ball, or skateboard etc. What’s even better is that these pets don’t need cleaning out or feeding (except with the occasional new battery), so if your kids have been going on about wanting a pet this could be the ideal solution!
