NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Barbie has held onto her crown as queen of girls' holiday wish lists for the fifth year but boys are going more high-tech, according to a poll of must-have toys.
The poll of 7,982 U.S. consumers by the company BIGresearch showed Barbie remained the most sought after toy for girls, with the rival Bratz dolls in second place, generic dolls in third place followed by Dora the Explorer and Disney Princess.
But for boys there was a bit of a shake-up in the annual list with last year's favorite, TMX Elmo, losing out to Transformers, the autobots made popular by the movie of the same name.
Transformers are now making a big hit and even that Christmas is coming, toy shelves of all toy store in Manila are now beginning to restock. Just like yesterday, Tons of Barricade and Bumble Bee pop outs last Wednesday and fans went to their nearest toy store just to grab some and complete their collection. I really believe that the Transformers toy will be the number 1 top wish list for boys and adults, One from the local toy store attendant said "Mommies are now looking and asking for Transformers toys for their kids, and now they ask where to find more of the Leader Class and Voyager class toys."
Transfomers toys attract boys because of its hi-tech design and it is one of the most treasured toy of all time. As an adult during I write these, Transformers are still one of my child hood wish list and now I fully understand today why these transforming vehicles to robots are one best seller and make kids go hyper everytime they see a robot.
Having 2 toys for a price of one is a great deal for parents. And kids can play the toy either in robot form or in their vehicle alternate mode. But these toys are not suitable for a very young age like 6 yrs old below, because projectile weapons are harmful to them, but for a responsible buyer and a parent, it will be better to take out the projectile and keep it away from them. Even me I used to remove the projectile weapons and keep it in my box, because sometimes people like to play my toys and unaware of the projectile thing popping out from their weapons.
"Christmas for me is early, just bought lots of new Transformers toys and other toy lines." Mark Cerbo, Transformers Philippines founder told me that last night.
