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!
