If your toddler has seemingly endless energy, as most toddlers do, then an Alex Little Jumpers Trampoline might just be the perfect solution. This little trampoline from Alex Toys has been designed with the energetic toddler in mind. It can provide exercise and fun in one great toy.
This brightly colored little trampoline will keep kids entertained for hours, or until they fall asleep exhausted. Perfect for rainy days when all they want to do is be outdoors running around, this trampoline will help get rid of some of that excess energy inside. Kids love jumping on it to music, or while they are watching their favorite television show.
Sometimes it can be a bit hard to come up with some effective active play. The Little Jumpers Trampoline promotes both exercise and active play at the same time. If it is time to get your little one up and moving, then having a trampoline inside, such as this one, is a great idea. Not only that, but when they feel like having a jump themselves, they can very independently climb on and off as and when they want to.
The Alex Little Jumpers Trampoline is fully padded around the outside to catch any falls that may occur. The handle is also padded, making it easy for little hands to grip and hold onto. The colors are lovely and bright and will quickly attract most toddler’s attention almost immediately.
Assembly of the trampoline is extremely easy. The legs are spring loaded so all that is required is to open the legs and attach the bungee cords. Then place padding on and your child is off and jumping.
This is not a huge trampoline. It is set low so that children can get on and off it easily. At 34.5 inches wide by 34.5 inches deep, it won’t overcrowd your room either. It can hold up to 80 pounds, so it will suit quite a few growing children of different shapes and sizes.
Kids being kids, have come up with lots of other uses for the Little Jumpers Trampoline. It is really nice to just lay about on if they are not feeling energetic and maybe do some reading or quiet play. It has also become a useful part of fort construction as it can provide two levels, one underneath and one above.
Alex have been producing toys since 1986, and are continuing to expand their lines every year. They have won numerous awards and honors in the toy industry for their quality toys. From this, you can be assured that you are buying quality in the Alex Little Jumpers Trampoline.
The idea isn’t necessarily new but Ontel Products has made it great with the creation of Pillow Pets. The idea of course is combining the security of a stuff animal with the function of a pillow. We all know kids love to cuddle, and Pillow Pets allows them to do that while they sleep because these pets are also a pillow.
Anytime a child has to lay down, Pillow Pets are there as foldable creatures ready for a good cuddle. It can be during playtime, naptime, or of course, bedtime. Children can quickly convert an 18 inch fuzzy friend from a pillow to a stuffed animal just by opening or closing a Velcro strap that is set across the animal’s belly.
And you’re not limited to just a couple of cuddly friends to choose from. There are dozens of different pets on the market, and that means it will be easy for you to find one your child will love. Does your child love wild animals? You can pick from lions, tigers, bears, giraffes and more. There’s puppies and ladybugs, and even unicorns. Cuddling up with a stuffed animal is one way children feel safe and secure. Cuddling up with an animal they love that they can also sleep on makes it even better.
One of the more popular Pillow Pets is the lavender unicorn. Pleasant dreams await as your child snuggles up with the soft cuddly fur. And parents will love the fact that the super soft chenille material is machine washable in a gentle cycle. However remember not to put your pillow pet into the dryer.
Another kids favorite is the Pillow Pets Panda. Like most of these animals, it measures 18 inches and has the Velcro closure.
And remember that Pillow Pets don’t have to be used only in the home. In fact, they are absolutely great for traveling. Think about how useful it will be in the car on a long road trip. Your child will have his favorite animal to keep him company on the journey, and then have a pillow that they can use when you reach your destination. And they are great for use on airplanes for those same reasons.
And if your son or daughter sometimes has a hard time falling asleep at night, Pillow Pets can be helpful there too. If a child is afraid of the night, having their pillow animal with them will help them feel more secure as they get under the covers.
I’m sure you remember the character Linus from the Peanuts comic strip. Linus always carried around his favorite blanket. Well children still do that with a favorite stuffed animal or blanket. You can expect your child’s Pillow Pets to become that security blanket.
And just like Beanie Babies and Webkinz before, look for Pillow Pets to possibly become collectible items. They will likely become more collectible every year and some parents have already started purchasing them for themselves.
It’s pretty easy to see why Pillow Pets will be a hot item this Christmas. In fact they will likely remain hot throughout the year. Anything that children love and helps them feel secure is always a big seller.
It should come as no surprise that Fisher Price found a way for small hands to realize the excitement that is digital camera. The Fisher Price Kid Tough digital camera is a great digital camera for kids. The name itself implies that this is a quality camera that can stand up to the abuse children are capable of dishing out. And the camera lives up to those claims.
I realize this is a toy website, but understand that this is not exactly a toy. What you have here is a completely functional digital camera. It’s just made for kids to use.
And when I say completely functional that means features like a large built in memory capable of keeping over 1000 pictures. How many other kid’s camera can do that?
But there are other features that make this a perfect digital camera for kids. Thing like a 4x digital zoom and enhanced low light performance for poor lighting conditions are the type of things you would expect to find on cameras designed for adults. But this camera also has child friendly controls that are large and easy to identify. And a large viewfinder that also is simple to use.
Taking the controls further you can download video software on to your PC. This will allow you (or your child) to manipulate the images. You can put in special effects like frames or other things that will make the photos even more unique.
Give a child this camera and you will be opening up a whole new world for them. They’ll be clicking photos constantly, and seeing the world from a whole new vantage point. It’s like experiencing freedom; the freedom to take photos anytime and anywhere. You may even find yourself with a budding photographer.
Your child will certainly feel like an adult with a camera. The viewing window allows them to see what they’ve captured immediately. Then they can decide to keep the picture or re-shoot it. And parents will love it because it is completely operational yet small and compact. And better still, it’s from a trusted company at a very reasonable price.
If you’re looking for a digital camera for kids, the Fisher Price Kid Tough digital should be high on your list. It has everything a child needs to help them develop a deep interest in photography. And new world will open up and they will fall in love with it. They will be experiencing things typically only enjoyed by grownups. They will take the camera everywhere. They’ll probably have it even when you don’t have yours. And that’s something that will surely come in handy at some point in the future.
We don’t need to tell you how popular the Disney princess line is. And we don’t need to tell you how beautiful these princesses are. What we do want to tell you about is the new Disney Princess & Me Dolls by JAKKS Pacific. These five extremely well crafted dolls capture all of the amazing features of the princesses in an 18 inch package. These wonderful reproductions allow your young princess enthusiast (recommended ages 3 to eight) to imagine the wonderful royal adventures of Belle, Aurora, Cinderella, Tiana, and Ariel.
And with five great dolls to choose from, your young girl can pick the one she identifies with most. From there it’s a world of tea parties, daydreams and other royal activities.
These aren’t some quickly thrown together reproductions either. They are works of art. You’ll get it all from the tiaras and signature gowns to gentle sweet faces and silky hair.
And if you really want your daughter to feel like the princess that she is, you can even get a matching dress for her. Matching dresses and sleepwear are sold separately allowing your child to look just like her princess doll. You can even get a matching ball gown so she can attend the princess ball. And all five dolls come with an invitation, giving your little girl a chance to become a member of the Princess & Me royal family.
Check out the Cinderella doll and you’ll see a dress that is incredibly well designed with three layers. The under skirt is satin and has a glitter print peplum sparkle organza print. Then there is the bodice. It is velveteen and has two tone organza on the sleeves. The front panel features intricate ruching.
But it’s not just about the stunning clothes. The doll has Macor eyes, the highest grade of glass. Look closely at the iris and your see those wonderful blue eyes have four different shades. The hair is imported from Japan and is made of the finest rooted hair. Her tiara is dazzling. It has rhinestones accenting a high gloss metallic finish. And Cinderella’s skin is a beautiful matte porcelain finish.
We use Cinderella as an example, but all the dolls are equally finely detailed. An official trust mark of the Disney Princess & Me line is imnprinted on the foot. And while the recommended ages are 3 to 8, older girls who are into fashion will also love them. Your young daughter will surely love them too.
The Minotaurus Lego Game combines two of kids favorite games. We all know how kids love to build things, and Lego bricks have helped kids create an unbelievable array of unique structures over the years. They never seem to grow tired of it. Now take that same building experience and combine it with a game of hide and seek, another childhood favorite, and you have a sure winner on your hands.
That’s what Lego Games has done. In these game you build and play, then change things up and build and play again. This is taking those great old blocks to a new level.
The Minotaurus Lego Game features a powerful mythical creature. Minotaur protects and guards a secret temple deep inside the labyrinth where he lives. Your child’s job here is to lead a group of heroes safely to the temple through various corridors and mazes. It sounds easy but it really isn’t, especially since you have opponents working hard to keep you from reaching the goal. They can do things like collapse the walls to block your way to unleashing the mighty Minotaur.
Everything you need to bring this exciting adventure to life is included. You’ll get a buildable Lego die, 12 Lego microfigures, a building instruction book and of course the rules. Just add the players and you’re set to go.
The Minotaurus Lego Game is recommended for kids 7 years and up, but that may be too limiting. If a younger child can understand the goal, he can probably play. Even adults will have fun with this one because of the plotting and scheming intricacies. In short, this is a game for the whole family, perfect for your family game night.
Of course all you have to do is look at the name Lego and you’ll know kids will love it. You probably played with Lego block when you were young, and kids today love them as well. Those blocks have a way of unleashing all of your creativity. Now it’s just not about being creative, it’s about being adventurous as well.
What makes this game unique is that once the game is over you can move the walls around. Now you get to be creative again and redesign your own set up. This means the game is different every time you play it. A complete game only takes about 30 minutes so even a child with a short attention span will not get bored on the quest. In fact, they’ll probably be ready to start another one once the first one is complete.
Children will look forward to playing the Minotaurus Lego Game over and over. It’s not a game that gets played once then gets placed at the bottom of the toy box. Instead it is a game that will have them ready for their next adventure.
Hi and welcome to Top 10 Toys For Christmas. Our name tells some of what we are about, but we are about much more than a list of popular toys.
We are, at this writing, at the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. So our first ten posts on this blog are indeed about the current most popular toys, the ones that are drawing a lot of interest from parents and of course kids. But as you know, things change rapidly. In a weeks time someone could announce the release of a new toy that comes out of nowhere and catches on like wildfire. When that does, we’ll be sure to tell you about it, and we’ll show you where to get it so you don’t miss out.
In the days before online shopping I remember our daughter decided at the last minute that she had to have a P.J. Sparkles doll. Remember them? You may not, They didn’t last very long. The problem was at the last minute they were impossible to find. And we called every store and toy retailer within a two hour drive. It’s amazing what we’ll do for our kids. Of course nobody had them. Some stores would tell us that they would have a new truck arriving overnight, but they had no way of knowing if the doll was on the truck. So the next morning, well before the stores opened I would go to one store with an overnight delivery, my wife would go to another, and we would wait until the store opened and the truck was completely unloaded. The bad news is that we never did get the doll, although we did end up with a pretty close clone. And since she was still very young, it made her happy. Man I wish there was good online shopping back then.
Which brings us back to this site. Our plans are to add at least one hot selling toy to the website every day. We’ll tell you a little bit about the toy so you can hopefully make an informed decision. And we’ll show you where to get it at a good price. We won’t be reviewing the toys per se since obviously we don’t have them all, but we will let you know what they are all about and what they do. And we’ll be doing this right up to Christmas day and a little bit beyond probably.
We recommend you subscribe to our feed in an RSS reader so you’ll know exactly when we add info on a new toy. That way you can check it out and see if it’s something your child (or you) might like.
We hope you find Top 10 Toys For Christmas a useful website. We certainly plan to make it one.
Update: As of August 11, 2011, we are going to make some changes. You see, Top 10 Toys for Christmas has become more popular than we ever expected. People don’t just stop by during the Christmas season, we find we are getting visitors year round. It seems many of you rely on us for great toy information.
So here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re not changing our name. Our primary focus is still Christmas toys. But we won’t be updating and posting reviews during the holiday season. Actually, we’ll probably be posting them year round. As many as 10 a month. We know that will mean this website will grow. So be sure to use the search function to see if we’ve written about a toy you’re interested in. Or just browse the pages to find the perfect toy for your child.
