Toys, toys, toys!
Popular toys are often like comets across the sky, drawing attention quickly and fading just as fast. “A good fad is about eight months from explosion to collapse,” Mr. Gottlieb said. While few toys outlast the initial hype, the ones he listed have endured as cherished memories from childhood and helped shape play time expectations long after they left the shelves.
With Santa Claus coming to town, you know what that means…you better start your holiday, shopping engines. We rounded up some suggestions for Cool Yule Toys.
