Top Toys 2008 - Get 'Em While You Can
Those fine upstanding types at the Toy Retailers Association have unveiled their Christmas 2008 ‘Dream Toys’ list – the twelve items that will inevitably be the subject of punch-ups in the aisles of Toys R Us as December rolls around.
Of course, there are two ways of looking at the list. If you’re a parent, it’ll act as a wake-up call to help you avoid those aforementioned December punch-ups. Or, if you’re an enthusiastic eBay trader, these are the toys you should probably be stocking up on, allowing you to make a filthy profit once the shelves are empty.
