The children are getting excited and will be busy writing their letters to Santa, because Christmas is coming very soon. Although they have been exposed all year to TV and magazine ads, they may be confused, and not know exactly what they want.
In the run up to Christmas, people naturally want to know what the best selling toys of that year are going to be. However, sometimes it is just best to go with the most popular selling toys that have stood the test of time – toys such as Monopoly, and Lionel trains. But, there are others as well.
Toy Story and Barbie have the prestige of being two of the most popular toy lines of all time.

Barbie turned 50 years old in 2009. To celebrate Mattel held a fashion show during Fashion Show Week, and a line of cosmetics from Stila. New products included Barbie Rocks fine jewelry, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Barbie doll, and My Favorite Barbie series.
Barbie dolls are a cultural icon, a classic toy whose popularity continues unabated. Kids today are still saying “Let’s play Barbies”, just like their parents and grandparents did before them. In fact, those parents and grandparents are likely to be still collecting Barbie dolls in order to pass them on to the next generation of Barbie lovers.
In 1995, Toy Story hit theaters and made a lasting impression. To this day, fans young and old still enjoy this great movie.
Since then, Toy Story has spawned two sequels: Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010).
The Toy Story Collection of definitive replicas includes among others, favorite characters Buzz Lightyear, Sheriff Woody, and Jessie Cowgirl. These should prove to be some of the most popular Christmas toys for 2010, emerging from the huge collection of Toy Story and gifts created over the years.
