The Hottest Toys for the Holidays: Technology Will Rule

The end of summer means many things- the kids are going back to school, the leaves are changing colors and the air is getting cooler. It also means that retail experts are also gearing up for the holiday sales season. Before the stores are even done decorating their aisles for Halloween, the experts are making predictions about what is going to be the biggest, hottest sale item for the coming season, the crown jewel in most retail operations. In many stores, a poor performance during the holidays can make or break the rest of the year.

It should be no surprise whatsoever that the top predicted toys for this year are technology based and includes a tablet style computer that has a number of child safety features as well as an educational toy that is geared directly to the younger crowd. The Leap Frog, Leap Pad has an improved memory , better cameras in both the front and the back and allows a child to play with more than three hundred games and child friendly applications. It is also supposed to be family budget friendly with a price tag that is under one hundred dollars. The slightly higher priced option, the Tabeo tablet has a number of parental controls which can adapt its use to even younger children.

Vehicles, including remote control cars and others are always popular. The Hot Wheels Terrain Twister remote control car is supposed to be able to handle any kind of surface, even snow and ice. Toy giant, Fisher Price always make a good showing, especially at the holidays with a variety of play sets designed for different age groups.

Dolls and doll accessories are again expected to sell well but none are expected to cause the frenzy of the Cabbage Patch Kids of the 1980's. Barbie and her accessories are top sellers, even in down economies but is facing competition from not only Bratz but monster themed dolls like the Bratzilla dolls and the Monster High Dolls. Dolls based on real people are also popular and tend to be seasonal, based on who is most popular at the time. This year, experts are predicting that dolls based on the boy band, One Direction will sell incredibly well.

Furby, originally released in 1998, sold so well that some of the stores had to keep them away from the fighting crowds. The brightly colored, fur covered toy is once again coming back, this time with a slightly higher price tag but still expecting to boost retail sales numbers skyward.
