London, England United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 11, 2008 -- Christmas is always a difficult time for parents who want to buy the latest and hottest toys for their children. Every year there are new 'must have' toys and games, and knowing what the current ones to buy is a headache for many families. This year Littlewoods Direct has sought to make things a bit easier for parents by providing a What's hot for Christmas section to their site to provide some much needed inspiration.
The Littlewoods Direct Whatâs hot for Christmas section provides several top ten toys [http://www.littlewoodsdirect.com/rf/lxd/navigation/spreadDsbs.do?categoryId=7944158] lists split into gifts for boys, gifts for girls, as well as providing ideas for what to get mums and dads. Gift ideas can also be filtered by price or TV show.
Toys and games [http://www.littlewoodsdirect.com/images/ptools/lwd_new/pages/toys-and-games/landing.html] always come out top as presents for kids or all ages at Christmas, and this year the number one kids' toy is the High School Musical plug and play karaoke which allows children to simply plug the microphone into the TV and then Sing-along with 10 High School Musical songs.
For girls the X Factor board game, which takes players through the journey of an X Factor contestant, passing through Auditions, Boot Camp, the Judges Houses and all the way to the Final, is one of the most wanted gifts this year.
For boys the 49-piece JCB Durable Workbench is one of the most fun and engaging toys for Christmas, while the feature packed Star Wars Millennium Falcon is sure to be one of the most sought after gifts for older boys, although dads may have to stop playing with it first.
For younger children the Sesame Street Elmo Live is the one of the most talked about soft toys [http://www.littlewoodsdirect.com/images/ptools/lwd_new/pages/soft-toys/landing.html] this year. For the first time ever, Elmo seems to actually be speaking as his mouth opens and closes just like the real muppet, Elmo from Sesame Street. He waves his arms, sits and stands, even crosses his legs all the while telling stories and jokes, singing songs and playing games.
For slightly older kids, the Nintendo DS Lite [http://www.littlewoodsdirect.com/images/ptools/lwd_new/pages/nintendo-ds-lite/landing.html] is again for the third year, the number one 'must have' console for both boys and girls.
With so many 'must have' Christmas gift ideas, Littlewoods Direct want to ensure that everyone gets what they really want this year.
