Toys for Christmas 2004 - Big Kidz

When we say Big Kidz we think of men of course... Well they might not admit it, but dads often buy little Johnny’s train set remembering their own and hoping to get a chance to put their hands on the controls! Overall 19% of toys are bought by men with 38% investing in Vehicles and 27% for Building Sets. This year we won’t be short of new fads with the development of DVD games (new platform for your old board game), the extensive launch of magnetic construction (for the engineer deep inside you) or Robosapiens... For £79.99 he will impress your friends more than your i-pod or your i-mac if you catch it soon enough!

Technology, extreme action, and brain power make this 10 hit the spot for dads, lads, and girls too
