This Year's Top Selling Toys, December, 2008 - Okay, baby boomers, for those of you that have kids or grand kids, and want to know what’s in and what’s not, here is a quick tip on two top selling stuffed animals of the season.
Care Bears are this year’s sensation since the Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the very popular Care Bear and Strawberry Shortcake TV cartoons from the 1980s will be returning to CBS. The Care Bears were originally created by American Greetings in 1981, and turned into stuffed Teddy bears in 1983 by Kenner toys. Care Bears are just one more 80s comeback that all our echo boomers will remember so well , and will make a great Christmas gift.

Also, popular as ever is Elmo. TV audiences got their first glimpse of this delicious little 3 1/2 year old red monster puppet in 1998, when PBS’s Sesame Street first introduced this adorable little creature. There are many variations of this children’s favorite from the classic “Tickle Me Elmo”, to the plain plush Elmos, and all are very popular on children’s wish lists.

Bathtub finger paints and crayons have been around for years, and still have held a captive bathtub audience. Bathtub art makes a child seem like they are not really even taking a bath, just playing around with paints and crayons, writing on the walls of the tub. These finger paints and crayons are relatively mess free, because they only show up on the tub or shower, and will wash off in seconds, meaning that your tub will be clean once bath time is finished!

There has been a few more rubber toys added to the rubber ducky tub toy. These toys include rubber frogs and rubber hippos! These toys can keep a child occupied for at least a half hour or so while in the bath tub! The frog can even suck up some water and be used as a little mini squirt gun of sorts, making bath time even more fun for your child!

Along with the usually toys, there are some also new toys that have been added such as bath stickers. Bath stickers have become increasingly popular over the recent years and parents and children are hooked on bath time! These stickers are made up of foam and when they get wet they can easily stick to the tub. When these stickers get dry, they will unpeel from the tub in a snap!

For a Particular Age There is a Particular Toy

By: Travis Olague

Toys don't only give excitement to the babies but benefit them by strengthening their fine motor skills, imagination and creative expression. Wonderful learning baby toys and games help babies and children to develop new skills as they play. High quality playthings support healthy growth-emotionally, socially, and cognitively. Children learn and develop more by imagining and doing. Speaking about toys and their magic effect on children it will be very unwise to ignore the age of the little minds, because every age stage needs its special toy.

First months
There are three things which are essential for newborns: delicious and nutritious mother's milk, calm and healthy sleep and a lovely, bright toy to entertain the little one when he or she is active. Though their eyesight is blurry, and they cannot focus on shapes quite well, bright colored moving objects can get a firm hold of their attention for a long time. And if you choose a toy with music it will become more attractive and fascinating. Rattles, squeaky toys or toys with music can have a soothing effect on your babies and create a calm feeling to them, Gentle music, for example can calm your baby before sleep or just when your little one is crying feeling nervous. A good toy can divert the baby's attention but for a while so you have a little time to guess the reason of crying and eliminate it.

ABC Roll & Go by Brainy Baby

Growing up
And of course there are toys with popular dancing music and songs which even can make your baby move to the music, wave his or her little hands or nod. As the baby grows up and can already hold toys somehow, well designed textured musical playthings will help to stimulate your baby's senses of sight, hearing, touch, as he or she begins to discover his or her new world.

Floor activities
Time is passing and your baby becomes more active and quick now he or she is ready for more energetic games. At the age of 6-9 months babies start to grip toys reaching for them, they enjoy playing with balls, cuddle-soft toys, bricks using their both hands. Pushing and pulling along baby toys will encourage walking and be very useful for balancing. It will make them interact with surroundings and encourage physical development as "chase and catch".

From 9 months to 1 year
So this is the time for interacting toys, like barking dogs and leaping frogs. Pressing buttons and winding up toys will not only entertain the babies but will also teach them about "causes and effects". It is also time for your toddlers to make an evolutionary step from crawling to walking. But do remember; do not try to rush your baby, you can only help him or her giving a ride-on toy to develop the muscles in his or her legs and arms improving the baby's coordination.

Do they really need toys?
In the first year of his or her little life a baby grows more now than at any other time, both physically and mentally, that is why it is extremely important to give your baby everything possible to improve his or her development.
Your babies like seeing your lovely face, listening to your sweet voice, laughing at you but their world is half empty without toys. Let's make their environment exciting.

Tips to find correct toy for your dog

There are many toys out there that your dog will love but finding one that he/she won't destroy in a couple minutes may be tough. There are several things that you'll want to consider before you make those major purchases. We all know those ropes that our dogs love to tug on. Well, they were the first company to come out with them. I believe that they first designed them as a perch in a bird cage. Nonetheless, they have been a great asset for us to have when playing with our dogs.

One of the first obvious considerations is the size of your dog.
Don't just buy anything cheap and small for them. Look for the quality pet toys products. Ropes come in all sizes and now even lots of different shapes. There are one knot with a handle, two knot, three knot and even larger ones. If I am buying ropes either to resell or for my own dog I look for quality.

I want something that is going to hold up for a while. So always look for a name brand. I mean they started the whole rope toy thing and only manufacture quality pet care products. No matter what type of dog toy you are looking at for your pet, always go for quality - they will always last a lot longer and in the long run - will save you money and make your pet happier.If your dog is a small dog then you can get them some dog supplies that are soft and easy to chew. That is unless your dog is the type to tear into everything.

Then, something sturdier comes to mind. There are several manufacturers that make several toys for the small dog that like to chew. Once again, when you buy quality you get more and more uses out of the dog toy and you save money in the long run.If you are looking for something to throw for your dog to retrieve or catch outside then the flying disc is the perfect toy for that.

They are light weight and they float. Great for any dog outside activity. So when you think about buying a new toy for your dog think about what your dog's needs and then think quality before you buy. Prioritize top notch quality for toys for your dog.Another trick to help you choose the correct toy for your dog is to purchase the right toy from a pet store online. Often, quality pet care products can be found online but it may be difficult to hand touch the pet care supplies. Since this is the case, look to see if dimensions are listed or if the toy is meant for a small, medium, or large dog. The same of course applies to aquarium supply, pet bird supplies, cat supplies, and other online pet supplies.Good luck finding the right dog toy for your special doggie.

Swing Sets

Swing sets are, perhaps, the ultimate aesthetic element to signify that a location is child-friendly. Whether it be a home yard or a school yard or a park, swing sets, in and of themselves, make for effective child-friendly statement. Imagine a housing project. Gray. Boring. Urban jungle-ish. Faceless. Nameless. Flavorless. Then, imagine the colorful swing set on the front common yard. Wouldn't that make your mind's eye view more refreshing?

There are countless of places where one can acquire swing sets. They're available online (but then again, so is everything else). Walk into some random store and you'll find some there too. Perhaps the singular, most important thing about a swing set is its safety. How do you make sure that the swing set would be able to withstand rowdy toddlers and occasional regressed adults without disintegrating into a pile of rubble nothingness? How can you make sure that the bolts, nuts and screws would hold? And how do you make sure that these same bolts, nuts and screws would not contribute to injury? How can you be assured of a safe, secure playtime for the kids?

Here are a couple of items you have to consider before you can decide on which swing set to acquire.

Material. There are a handful of materials available in the market. There's heavy molded plastic, wood, metal, alloy. My swing set when I was younger was even part cement! The most common material would be the redwood. Mainly because this sturdy wood is easier to manage and can withstand the harsh elements of nature that comes with being placed outdoors. It is relatively easy to bore a bolt hole through wood as opposed to metal. Also, there are coatings which are tested non-toxic which can be applied to the surface of the material to enhance its resilience against weathering and other elements.

The method as to how the parts attach to each other is as important. Bolts and screws are easy to attach, but there are hazards that come with it. If bolts and screws are not attached with child-safety considerations, they might end up injuring the children who are using the facility. Bolts and screws which stick out of the structures are major no-no's. These might catch children's elbows or arms or knees and cause accidental scrapes and punctures. These may also catch their clothing and cause nasty tears. There are assembly techniques which can be employed to significantly reduce the risks of these accidents. Sharp corners and edges are also to be considered. The less sharp edges and corners there are, the better. If there has to be corners and edges, they ought to be made as child-friendly as possible. The movable elements such as chains and ropes from where the swings hang from must be as sturdy as the elements which hold them in place. The kind of chain links and the kind of ropes used should be of high quality.Aesthetics. Children are not only attracted to bright colors, they practically thrive in them. A swing set should be complete with aesthetic elements to make it more attractive to the little kids who are to use them. With enough color, you can make little kids shriek with joy.

Playground Safety Tips

A day out at the playground can be just the thing to get your kids active and enjoying some fresh air. It doesn't take much to please children. Give them a slide and a few swings and they will be happy for hours. But don't make the mistake overlooking potential dangers at the playground. Some rules should be put in place in order to protect your kids from unnecessary harm.

Start out by ensuring that the playground your children play at is appropriate for both their age group and their size. Playgrounds come in all sizes and forms. Some of them really are not for toddlers and pose many risks. If you have very young children, seek out a park that has baby swings and a small slide rather than equipment designed for much older children. Likewise, some areas are even designed for teenagers rather than younger kids. Determine the proper level of play for your kids.

It's a good idea not to leave your kids alone at the playground. Of course this is up to the parent and varies based on things like age, distance and length of stay. Accidents can occur and it would be unfortunate for a child to get injured and be too far away from home to get proper help. If you must send kids without a parent, send them in groups. It is always much safer in a group.

Be certain that your children know how to deal with things like strange people or strange animals. Knowing how to deal with a potentially dangerous situation makes all the difference when it comes to getting out of it. Children should also be taught to use playground equipment properly. Most accidents occur because of improper use of something. If kids know how to use the playground equipment it will eliminate them from taking too many unnecessary risks.

If you plan to be spending a lot of time with your children at the playground, it certainly does not hurt to take a First Aid kit with you. Even a small cut or scrape can be taken care in just a few minutes with some cleansing material and bandages. A good thing to have in your kit is some kind of eye wash in case something gets into an eye.

Pay attention to who else likes to use the playground with your kids. The most incidences of bullying tend to occur at playground when there are no adults present. Children can be vicious at times so pay attention to the goings on around your child when they are at play. If you have any reason to believe that something is not right, make a point to find out if there is something going on that you don't know about.

The playground is something that some of us never really outgrow. Spend time there with your children. It's a great place to get some much needed exercise and get away from the electronics. Prep your kids for safety and they will be just fine.
