The Hunger Games Jigsaw Puzzle

There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that there are going to be many gifts chosen this year from The Hunger Games book and movie franchise.

If you know someone who loves the books and movie who also enjoys working a jigsaw puzzle occasionally, we know they'll enjoy this The Hunger Games jigsaw puzzle based on artwork from the movie.

It's a TOP-RATED GIFT IDEA that is a little bit out of the ordinary.  I wouldn't mind finding it under my Christmas tree at all.

How about you? Would you enjoy working this 1000 piece Hunger Games puzzle?

Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse Pants Coffee Mugs By Disney

How cool is this Donald Duck pants coffee mug? Too cool, I'd say.  We love the Mickey Mouse pants coffee mug, too.

Each of these mugs, created for the Walt Disney Resort, is 6 ounce in size and measures about 4.5 inches in height.

One or the other or even both would make a TOP-RATED GIFT idea for any Disney fan.

Furby by Hasbro 2012

There's absolutely no question this time. My favorite Furby is the bright purple one. I love his varigated coat. I also love the teal one, he's just so bright and appealing. The white one is icy and cool...and the black one, well he's another sort of cool. Okay, so I really cannot pick a favorite Furby anymore than I could pick a favorite Cabbage Patch Kid in my last post.

The Furby is the second in a series of Hot Toys for 2012 and it is another retro-themed toy. The original Furby was a must-have toy in 1998, the year Furby sales exceeded 1.8 million units. 

It will come as no surprise that the new Hasbro Furby is going to surpass the old one in technological ability.   This little guy is said to be fairly unpredictable since he's going to evolve as you use him.


He will respond to all sorts of movements and he will recognize both music and voice. 

If you download the free Furby App, you will be able to feed him. No app? No problem, you can feed him with your finger.

You will also be able to use the app to translate Furbish to English.

Well, without further ado let me show you what the 2012 Furbies can do via this short Youtube video:

Pretty cute, don't you think? It looks like Hasbro's 2012 Furby could be a very successful interactive toy for individuals 6 years old and up.   He's definitely pretty cute and earns a place on my list of HOT toys for 2012.

Cabbage Patch Kids 2012

The iconic Cabbage Patch Kid doll was first created by Xavier Roberts in 1978.  At that time, the dolls were called Little People and sold at craft shows but the doll, who came with a numbered birth certificate, went on to become a huge fad of the 1980s and a  highly collectible doll.

Forecast to be once again one of the HOT toys for 2012, is the Cabbage Patch doll. We love how fresh and modern these kids look and the range of choices from light to dark skinned and from pretty to preppy or sporty.

Here's the 2012 Cabbage Patch kid advertisement for a peek into the collection:

Check out the 2012 Cabbage Patch dolls for yourself in our photo gallery, starting with the Cabbage Patch Kids Blonde Summertime Girl shown in the yellow and pink polka dot dress shown at the top of this page and then going on to the Cabbage Patch Kids African American Sporty Girl shown below:

And continuing on with the Cabbage Patch Kids Brunette Playground Girl:

And the Cabbage Patch Kid Blonde Preppy Girl:

And we love the fact that there are even BOY Cabbage Patch dolls.

Here's the Cabbage Patch Kids Brunette Hair Hispanic Skater Boy:

And the brunette Cabbage Patch Kid Preppy Boy:

If I had to pick a favorite from amongst the 2012 lineup of Cabbage Patch Kids, I'd be stumped because I really do love them all. How about you? Is there one that you find particularly appealing?
