Holy Cow! Only a couple of days until Christmas....it almost seems surreal to me right now - how did a year slip by so quickly? If you are anything like me there are always a couple of last minute gifts to pick up, you know when your child's friend drops off a gift and you weren't expecting it.
Bandai has a couple of great suggestions! And, here is the best part these toys are available at your local neighbourhood stores, such as Zellers, Loblaws, Wal-Mart and Home Hardware. (check your store for availability)
The Tamagotchi family is growing...new for the holiday season is TamaTown and six new Gotchi friends.
Tamagotchi is the one and only virtual pet. TamaTown is the newest sensation, it includes the original nurturing play pattern and character customization.
Tamagotchi is geared towards children ages 6 - 10, which (in my opinion) is sometimes pretty difficult to buy for.
Ben 10 Ultimate Alien
Another great holiday release are a couple of new Ben 10 toys. I knew Ben 10 would be a favourite around our home, since my son (who is 7) loves watching Ben 10 on tv. He got an early Christmas gift when he was given the opportunity to review two new Ben 10 Ultimate Alien toys.
This is Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Comic, as well as, Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Vuescope Ultimatrix.
Matt is having such a good time with the Vuescope Ultrimatrix, he can pop the top and watch as the image of any of 12 different aliens appears on the Ultrimatrix. This toy needs batteries, which were included.
Then of course he is loving the Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Figures. He is always a fan of carrying around small toys such as these, so these were right up his ally. Plus, he loved the comic book!
Both of the Ben 10 toys we checked out are priced at the affordable price point of $16.99, and I think either would make any boy happy in the age range of 6 - 10. And, the best part is they should be pretty easy to find and pick up at neighbourhood stores.
