HOUSTON, TX – Children take toys very seriously. No need to go knock on the door of the White House or the Pentagon to get a toy update for these holidays. Fifth-grade students at Longfellow Elementary School in Houston will do the job just fine.

From classroom straight to Congress. Wait and see. These kids knew their stuff and how to deal with the media.  It’s a jammed packed press conference when the experts presented their survey.  The students included in the list of top-ten hottest toys items that wouldn’t be a financial burden for their parents and focus on finding various toys that are both desired by kids and priced under $50. The winners for 2012 are:

  1. Legos
  2. Crayon Explosion Globe.
  3. Moon Dough.
  4. Nerf Gun 10 Blaster.
  5. Figit Friends.
  6. Leapfrog.
  7. Bikes.
  8. Action Figures (examples: The Avengers, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Transformers).
  9. Monster High Dolls.
  10. Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

So, dear Santa, now you know: before you pack your bag and hit the skies, please read the polls. These kids didn’t do all this hard work just for you to go with your gut.  These are competitive times and good customer service is the key to keeping your job.  Otherwise, children will have to replace you with their parents.
