Hot and Safe Toys

We haven't even made it through Thanksgiving yet and already shoppers are starting to check off their Christmas lists. But if you haven't started yet, or maybe don't know what to buy… We have some help for you.

Wal-Mart says the new Brat dolls look to be a hot one for girls…sort of Barbie's rival this season. If you're looking for a boy, you'll want to check out the new remote control Hummer.

But for parents it's not always about what's popular, they also want a toy that is safe. When choosing a gift for a child, make sure the toy doesn't have any small parts that could end up being a choking hazard. Also make sure the toy is age appropriate. Finally, pick a toy that will last. In other words check for sturdiness.
