Top of the tree - this year's hottest Christmas presents

Bitterwallet - Ben 10: Alien Force - whoop!It's not like the old days is it, when you'd be happy to get an apple, an orange and a cap gun under the tree? Balls. Whatever your parents told you, they were as pissed off as you would be to get a handful of fruit for Christmas. Transformers, an AT-AT and a Raleigh Grifter - now that's a Christmas. But what are the kiddie-winkles expecting this year?

We're not sure if the Toy Retailers Association's official prediction of Christmas best-sellers has been determined by children or manufacturers, but it's good to see Transformers still there, 25 years later. The new ones are bobbins, mind. Ben 10 is the best kids cartoon is years, but they're still flogging Sylvanian Families?
