Hottest Christmas Toys 2011 – the Dream Toys List 2011
Much to our surprise when Techno Toys released their much wished for Toy List for Christmas 2011 some of last year’s favorites were still being touted as the most wished for Christmas toys for 2011. It may be a reflection of the uncertain economic times that we find ourselves in this year as toy manufacturers have opted for cheaper more affordable toys.
For those visiting our site from the UK you may find these toys by clicking on the banner below.
We advise everyone to shop early so as not to disappoint those expectant children on your list.
This Year’s Dream Dozen in alphabetical order are:
- Barbie Video Girl DollThe Barbie Video Girl Doll is another example of Mattel’s attempt to show Barbie as a functioning member of today’s society rather that just a glamour girl. The video doll allows children to become film directors and make up their own movie stories. With parents running around filming every movement of their child’s activities this Barbie allows children to create videos, upload them to computers and share them with friends. For little girls there are never enough Barbies and this is a wonderful one that promotes imagination while promoting both filming and computer skills.

Beyblade Metal Fusion Super Vortex Battle Set
This Beyblade Metal Fusion Battle Setis an amazing take on the idea of spinning tops battling with one another.

Boys love to battle and this is another option for the Pokemon lovers. With all the videos of battles on YouTube the boys will be quick to imitate the characters.
