Top Ten "Must-Have" Christmas toy lists offer gift-givers an excellent edge to finding perfect presents as painlessly as possible.
West Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2009
While every year around this time there are a ton of Top Ten lists covering everything from the best ways to cook a Tom Turkey to the best ways of breaking up with that turkey named Tom, most Americans are on the hunt for the ones that really matter - those Top Ten “Must-Have” Christmas Gift Lists that can save them a ton of precious time in the stores this season. Since Black Friday, mall clocks have begun "officially" counting down the shopping days to Christmas and that means many consumers will rely on the most helpful "must-have" toy lists to gain a gift-giver's edge to finding perfect presents as painlessly as possible.
Inventors Know What’s Hot And What’s Not
If there’s one thing inventors have in common it’s that they’re all, well, really inventive. But inventors also share a creative driving force that gives them a special appreciation for what’s innovative as well as an eye for what’s exciting. Especially during this time of year, they can help shoppers plow through the multitudes of new toys that fill the stores and help point them toward those worthy of their time and money. That’s why when a friend emailed this writer about a “Top Ten Must-Have Toys for Christmas” list for kids of all ages posted at InventorSpot.com, he was all over that link like fleas on a reindeer.
A Horde Of Hamsters Or A Herd Of Elephants?
InventorSpot’s slogan is “Serious Fun for the Inventor in All of Us” and that’s what they deliver. Even fans of David Letterman’s Top Ten List would agree that Dave’s “Top Ten Pick Up Lines of Elves” pales when compared to what they'll find on InventorSpots Top Ten Christmas Toy List. Not only does it give some great gift ideas but a few of their toys could definitely out-do Dave’s best “Stupid Pet Tricks” and probably even handle a few guest interviews with a little help.
For example, take number nine on their “Must-Have” list, in fact, take five of number nine (known as a horde in hamster circles) because “Zhu Zhu Hamsters” (from Zhu Zhu Pets) are cute little robot rodents that come in five different characters. With a whole range of pet accessories from hamster-mobiles to spiral slides, InventorSpot says this cuddly line of robotic rodentia are “scurrying from store shelves as fast as retailers can stock them.” At Number Four and safe from being scared by the hamster horde is Electronic Pet’s robotic elephant, “Fureal Zambi,” a playful pachyderm packed with the latest animatronics so he can wiggle his ears, curl his trunk around a finger and even blow kisses.
Less Fur, More GRRRRR
For people with wish lists that call for robots with less fur and more “grrrrrr” then Number Eight, “Rocky the Robot Truck” (Matchbox Toys) could rock their gift world. A truck and a robot, Rocky tells jokes, dances and even snores when he goes to sleep. Snoring may be a big plus for a toy truck but what if Rocky falls asleep and accidently dumps his load on one of Zhu Zhu’s hamsters as it hotrods by in its hamster-mobile? That’s the perfect reason to definitely check out this next toy - a retainable robotic ambulance-chaser named “My Pet Lawyer” from Billable Hours Unlimited, Ltd.
According to InventorSpot, Los Angeles entrepreneur Nancy Gershwin invented this remote-controlled shark-pit-bull-barrister after discovering "she couldn’t make a move without talking to one of her lawyers." “My Pet Lawyer’s” eyes and mouth flash as he growls out up to nine preprogrammed phrases or he can be programmed to say or sing whatever a person wants – solo, or in a choir of attorneys. He can be retained as a private practitioner or in a 6-pack of lawyers (known as a firm in legal circles). After being called a “must-have toy” by the “American Bar Association Journal” and then chosen Best Creative Holiday Gift and Best Office Gift by “Baltimore Magazine,” featured in "Gotham" Magazine's "Perfect Presents" and on CNBC, “My Pet Lawyer” is anchoring the “Top Ten Must-Have Toys for Christmas” list at Number Ten along with other star toys including Star Wars Force Trainer” (#1) (Uncle Milton Industries), Disney’s New Buzz Lightyear (#2), Hasbro’s Nerf-N-Strike (#3), Nintento’s Wii Sports Resort (#5) and Hasbro’s Transformer Devastator (#6).
Ho-Ho-Hold On A Second. Something Is Missing.
As the song says, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and it’s also the busiest as shoppers deck the halls at super packed malls while working their Santa-playing time in around some sanity-restoring relaxation time. That’s why InventorSpot has definitely hit the G-spot (known as Gift Spot in gift-giver circles) with such a helpful list this year. Maybe this article is “one toy short of a full shelf” but most would agree that this is a season of loving and giving all wrapped in Christmas miracles including the “miracle” of a well-planned surprise gift on Christmas morning. Because surprises are fun, there's even one planted in this article which really is “one toy short of a full shelf.” A toy listed in InventorSpot’s Top Ten List has.intentionally been left out. Any reader who clicks over to InventorSpot’s “Top Ten Must-Have Toys for Christmas” list can find that mystery toy, have fun reading about the others and start having themselves a merry little Christmas today!
