With Christmas right around the corner, most of us are looking for the most fun toys to get for that special child in our life.  Here are a few of  our current favorites, and what your child would love to find under the tree this year.

Big Hugs Elmo- this guy might be “The” hot toy of the year.  If you have a little one, Big Hugs Elmo is sure to please.  He is large (about the size of a one year old) and a whole lot of playful fun. Elmo loves getting and giving hugs, and will often ask for a bigger or tighter squeeze from your little cuddle bug. Elmo also asks to play ponies, jump like froggies, (and will comment along with appropriate noises) and dance, sing, nap, and more.  He raises his arms up and down, hugs back, and sings bedtime songs and snores when laid on his back.  You can find Big Hugs Elmo at http://www.toysrus.com or in physical stores near you for about $50- and if you want this toy, I think it will go fast, so get yours early.

If you are in the mood for Elmo, also take a look at Playskool Sesame Street Lullaby & Good Night Elmo by Hasbro.  This little guy is ready for bed, in his Dorothy the goldfish pajamas, and all set to comfort your peanut as he or she drifts off into dreamland.  Kids can snuggle up with Elmo and press Elmo’s tummy to hear a lullaby or one of a few bedtime phrases.  Take note that there is no “off” button, so the button may be pressed accidentally if your child is a restless sleeper.  Available at stores like Koh’ls or at http://www.hasbro.com for roughly $15.
