Hot Holiday Toy and Gift Finds

Did you brave the Black Friday crowds or rush out when Thanksgiving dinner was still on the table to take advantage of the early Black Friday deals? Every year, I usually get most of my list taken care of on Black Friday. This year, I was sidetracked by none other than the common cold, which kept me from getting my list done. I did visit a couple of toy stores and, along with items I found at recent toy shows, found these hot holiday gifts:


A fun light show in the palm of your hand. Fun for any age (even adults) and at a great price for a gift or stocking stuffer. Find them at most major retailers, specialty stores and Toys ‘R’ Us and

What’s New from Cepia

Xia-Xia™ (from Cepia LLC) are new colorful, collectible hermit crabs. From a distant island, these crazy crustaceans live to dance and play because everyday is a celebration with Xia-Xia! Start the parade by pressing Xia-Xia’s claw and watch it do its wacky walk. Four loveable characters, each with their own little friend, compose the Xia-Xia crew. Xia-Xia characters and play sets available at Toys ‘R’ Us and Wal-Mart.


An award-winning toy that includes a Nintendo DS game, interactive website and webisodes, DaGeDar™ is the ultimate game of speed and skill. Kids love the Dag graphics, back story and racing. Mom’s like that kids have to use their imaginations to make their own rules, making this toy “hot” for holiday.

Stay tuned for more of my hot holiday picks!
