This year has presented us with a ton of great toys. There are so many toys that have become top sellers, but what are some of the top toys of 2006? There have been some pretty great toys released for the 2006 holiday season and some are simply amazing. Some of these toys go above and beyond the regular laughing stuffed animal and board games. These toys are worth begging for and believe me, kids will be begging for these toys. Here is just a small sample of some of the top toys of 2006.
T.M.X. Elmo: When it comes to top toys for 2006, this toy takes the cake. The T.M.X. Elmo flew off the shelves when it was first released this fall. Kids will love this Elmo. Elmo doesn’t simply laugh anymore. Oh no. Elmo now bends over and laughs, falls on the floor and beats his hand on the ground, and even picks himself back up. It’s no wonder that this is one of the top toys for 2006 and it’s no wonder that most places are still sold out. While the T.M.X. Elmo was released for $39.99, it is now selling for around $70 on EBay and Amazon’s Marketplace.
PS3: People have literally gone crazy for this gaming console. This is another top toy that flew off the shelves. Is it any wonder? This gaming console is something to be reckoned with. Supposedly the PS3 is the most powerful gaming console ever released. This toy easily made the list of top toys of 2006, even though it was released in mid November. While the devoted fans waited in line and paid $499 and $599 for the systems, others have been forced to shell out $2000 to $3000 for this powerful gaming system.
Here and Now Monopoly: Long gone are the days when property was $200, so why should Monopoly players still be paying those prices? Why not make the game more realistic by having the players pay $600,000 for pieces of property? And who wants to be stuck playing a thimble? With this top toy you will have the choice of playing a cell phone, laptop, box of fries, or one of the other popular pieces of merchandise. This top toy really captures the world of 2006. This top toy is a steal costing only $15.
Nintendo Wii: Electronics always make popular toys and this gaming console is no different. People of all ages will love playing games on this console and that’s just what Nintendo intended for them to do. Nintendo designed this system to be fun for everyone, even Grandma. The new controller makes it easy for anyone to play. You can hold the controller like a sword and you can even swing it like a bat. Everyone will love playing with this top toy, long after 2006. Unfortunately this toy may have been too popular because it has disappeared from the shelves of stores and is now being sold for around $800, about $300 more than it originally cost.
Spongebob Monopoly: Spongebob is one of the most popular themes for kids and the toys are even more popular. Kids love Spongebob and for 2006 kids want the Spongebob edition of Monopoly. You won’t buy houses and hotels; instead you will buy Krusty Krab franchises. Also there are very detailed playing pieces including Spongebob, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, and other popular characters. This is yet another top toy that cannot be kept in stock. If you can find it you can expect to pay around $30 for it.
Don’t miss out on these top toys for 2006.
