While there were a few organizations that came out with lists for Top Christmas Toys in 2010 in July as they usually do, these may or may not actually be the toys that are hot this Christmas. As you know, it's a combination of advertising, marketing message, and children that make up the popular toys every year.
With long boring months of school vacation ahead, toys and other time-fillers become more important than ever. About.com parenting experts Terri Mauro (Parenting Special Needs), Catherine Holecko (Family Fitness), Susan Adcox (Grandparents) are joined by About.com's expert on Toys, Keriann Wilmot, to discuss new playthings, old favorites, and other fun things to use as distraction for your child during the long months off from school.
