Every year there is "that" toy. The "Tickle Me Elmo" of whatever year it happens to be. I know the one that I had to sell my soul for many years ago was the Nintendo Wii when it first came out. It was the perfect toy for the age of my kids and it was the one thing they just had to have, and best intentions and good sense be damned I was going to get it for them.

Well you are in luck because this year I am going to give you this years "must have" gift. That's right I have decided to help you all out and get that gift for you. First things first, I had to find out what this year's hot item was, so I did a little research so I can go and stock up on them. You wouldn't believe what that toy is.


That's right according to the "New York Times", it just doesn't exist. Sure there are toys that are selling well, maybe better than most. Those would be the "Angry Birds" toys, Legos and something called Lalaloopsy Silly Hair Dolls. None of them however, have made it to the must have toy level.

Now I am just so upset. I hoped there would be something I could give you all but if nothing is the "all-in" toy, than nothing is what you will get. Perhaps next year we will get luckier, if I am still feeling this generous. You know what they say, "It's the thought that counts".

God Bless.
