With Christmas approaching it's time to start getting the Christmas list together. My son of course being three wants everything he sees on every commercial. My daughter however, has a good idea of the things she wants since she is a little older. A couple of the things my daughter wants are extremely expensive so Santa won't be able to get those items. I need some more ideas for the kids this year. Can you tell me some good toys that are out this year within a reasonable price?

Yes, my kids love books too. I'm definitely going to get some of them. Thanks for your response.

I don't think that there are any inexpensive "it" toys this year. I think that the WII is going to be hard to find again this year. My daughter is 8 and she wants a Hannah Montana guitar hero game. I was hoping to find some flat screen tv's at a good price on Black Friday, but it looks like I won't be able to find one under $200 and I wanted to buy 2 of them. I have no idea what I am getting my daughter as her big gift this year.

I know what you mean. They're all expensive. The one toy my daughter wanted was the big stuffed dog "Biscuit" that barks and hands over his paw. I can't hand over $179 for a stuffed animal.

Something my boys have been asking for is that new rock band game. My boys are a little older so they don't get as many toys as they used to. That is really the only toy they have wanted. Everything else is moovies, cd's and stuff.

I think the Wii is poular again but expensive. The games are highly priced too. My Life Portable Console - Virtual Life Simulator looks good around $80 and comes in a nice pink colour it seems very popular. High School Musical Dance Mat is under $50 and is on the top ten list too. Hannah Montanna items are on my daughters wish list this year also. Cameras are poplular with my older daughters.
