Christmas 2009 is just weeks away. Knowing how close Christmas is here most parents start Christmas shopping about now. Before they start shopping the most famous question is “What are the Hottest Christmas Toys for 2009.” Being a parent of 3 small kids I know this year I will be spending less money due to this darn recession. Will I be able to buy some of the hottest Christmas toys for 2009 for my children? Yes, because many of the toy Companies are now making smaller and budget friendly ideas for kids that parents can actually afford rather than spending a few hundred dollars on one toy like the infamous Butterscotch Pony that was hot last year.
After doing my research and getting some toy advice from a Toy’s R Us coworker, here are the toys that are hot for Christmas 2009. Let’s see if your favorite Christmas toy made my list.
