Start paying attention to the toy commercials that you start seeing now because it is sometimes indicative of what will be hot for the Christmas season.

This is not just your average Clown Fish – Nemo would be jealous. There is also an inflatable Shark that Flys.
Air Swimmers Remote Control Flying Clownfish
Fun remote controlled clownfish for indoor family fun. Moves up, down, full 360 degrees up to 40 feet away.
Made from a durable nylon and simply bounces off of walls and other items it bumps into. Doesn’t break!
Needs to be filled with helium. Can be reinflated over and over. Stays inflated for up to two weeks. Requires 4 AAA batteries. Measures 57 inches long and 36 inches tall. Great fun for the office, family get togethers, kids indoor parties.
Another rumored Hot Toy is an Elmo Toy! Now, thankfully we are past our Elmo days but I have to say they sure do build Elmo to last. Hokey Pokey Elmo and Chicken Dance Elmo still come out and perform when we have play dates with our younger friends. This year’s Let’s Rock Elmo comes with a choice of two instruments to play!
Elmo comes with his very own microphone and two instruments (tambourine and a drum set).
Preschoolers can choose which instrument Elmo plays, and he “magically” recognizes which one you give him.
For even more rockin? fun, Elmo also interacts with other LET?S ROCK instruments (each sold separately); he knows when you?re playing the LET?S ROCK Guitar, Keyboard or Microphone and plays along with you!
The LET?S ROCK Elmo toy sings six rockin? songs, so grab an instrument and join Elmo?s band
