Whoa, Momma!

Where the toys are



Mom_kota The countdown is on! Every toymaker in the land is hoping that you will play Santa with their toys for your tots, tweens and teens. And with the gift card market a little shaky right now because of failing stores and the bitter economy, toys might be the way to go.

So, the Go Momma team has taken the guesswork out of gift giving by testing some of the holidays hottest toys. We liked a lot of what we saw but others should be left on the shelf. And check out why the real smackdown may be between a couple of million-year-old dinosaurs and a perpetual 3 1/2 Mom_spike year old.

Mom_elmolive_2 And while you're at it, check out what we had to say about toys from blockbuster summer movies, including Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull; Incredible Hulk; Clone Wars; and Iron Man.

So let your fingers do the clicking while you decide what should be in Santa's sleigh for your kids. And check out this list of toys that been recalled this year just in case they appear on the shelves.

If you have tried out some of these toys or tested others that our readers should hear about, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
