With 2007 now behind us I thought it would be a great idea to reflect on some of last year’s best selling gifts for children. These gifts were particularly hot during the Christmas season, but I believe they will continue to be favorite gift items for birthdays and special occasions. Here are the top 5 best sellers.
Floating Duck Radio
All kids love rubber ducks or bath toys. This floating duck is no ordinary duck, it is also a radio with two frequencies – AM and FM. The frequencies and channels can be adjusted by twisting the duck’s tail. The radio switches on and off by turning the duck’s head clockwise and anti-clockwise. This is truly an ingenious way to keep your kids entertained in the bath and for the adult to enjoy their favorite radio station at the same time. It is an inexpensive gift with amazing sound quality.
Remote Controlled Bumper Cars
I remember loving these bumper car rides at the amusement park and now you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home! Imagine all the fun without the knocks and bangs that you would experience behind the wheel. These remote control bumper cars race along a smooth surface. The realistic movements of the cars make crazy turns in an attempt to hit one of their opponent’s 3 sensors. Hit all 3 to disable the opponent’s car and win the game.
Certain 3D puzzles were extremely popular over the Christmas season. The Sudocube was a best seller. It combines the challenge of the popular sudoku puzzle and the fun of a rubik’s design. The sudocube is not only fun, it is also educational and a great way to stimulate and motivate both kids and adults alike.
Slingshot Flying Monkey and Frog
These relatively inexpensive and fun toys were best sellers all year round. There must be something about screaming monkeys and frogs making croaking noises when hoisted in the air! Whatever the reason, the slingshot flying monkey and frog are absolutely hilarious, fun and a must have. The flying monkey is dressed mysteriously in a cape and mask just like a super hero. Both the frog and monkey can fly and travel 50 feet – just put two fingers in the hand pockets, pull back it’s strong elastic arms and let go.
Imported from the UK, and currently not available anywhere in the US, is the award winning Gelli Baff! Kids simply can’t get enough of Gelli Baff. Simply run your bath 2 or 3 inches deep, turn off the tap, add Gelli Baff and watch in amazement as your boring bath water magically turns into a fun thick goo!
