X BOX ONE was just released and they can not be found anywhere now.....I hope the company gets stuck with withholding them from the public....the company should be QUITE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES for doing such. This happened with the other game consoles as well....Nintendo did the same thing many years ago when my children were young. Sad that children see the advertisements and then the parents can NOT find them.

Maybe some budget-constricted hacker will hack into Norad's Santa Tracker to slow him down and cause Santa to officially arrive a few days late, so everyone can take advantage of all the after Christmas sales!!!

Take them to the zoo, art museum or some other activity then dinner. they will remember that more than a imported toy. The advantage is that would that you would put someone to work the money stays here and maybe more than one person not looking for your job. And also part of it will go back into taxes.

sorry forgot my kid, nieces and nephews loved it. they still talk about when uncle ronnie took us to the circus or a disney on ice. And never had to worry that one would complain that someone got a better gift all of them were equal

If you live in Saint Louis you can take them to these places for free! Our Zoo and museums are free for all and the Zoo is the #1 zoo in the USA! Plus there are no taxes on the cool stuff you can buy in the gift shops from all over the world.

Agree with St. Louis comments. We do have the best zoo, and Forest Park is a treasure. I travel a lot and visit lots of zoos, and ours is truly one of the top 2 or three in the world!

Russ, I think these were all banned because they could put someone's eye out:)

I liked that one too and I'm an old lady. Benefits of an aquarium with no mess or dead fish to flush!

They are probably made in China and painted with lead paint. No thanks, I'll just keep giving to their college funds.

Not one of these toys has a name or a description. Makes it difficult to see if I would want to buy it for my grandchildren.

There is a name of the toy at the bottom of the black box in the left corner. I agree though it is not user friendly or shopper friendly.

Four gift rule:
1 thing they want
1 thing they need
1 thing to wear
1 thing to read
Even better if at least one of those things is homemade.
