Toys go hi-tech this Christmas

The annual battle for the UK's Christmas pound has begun.
Perennial favourite Barbie goes hi-tech with this MP3 player
The Toy Retailers Association has unveiled a list of 12 toys that it expects will dominate kids' Christmas lists this year.
Toymakers have largely played safe with old favourites and TV and movie tie-ins, but have given them a technological twist.The list includes a new version of perennial favourite Barbie that incorporates an MP3 player, a fluffy puppy that grows bigger the more it is petted by its owner, and Optimus Prime, the robot hero of this year's hit summer movie Transformers.
Though I have been considering the IgglePiggle that is on the TOP 12 list, however, the fact that Beauty has hundreds(I kid you not!) of other soft toys, I am still not convinced.
Sometimes we say the stupidest things without thinking.
Last night SnoWhite and I were watching the film Baby Boom and SnoWhite had not seen the start of the film and so she asked where the baby had come from and I said HER COUSIN LEFT IT TO HER IN HER WILL!
Well my only defense is that it made perfect sense to me when I said it!
SUGGESTION OF THE DAY-Alistair Darling , deal with those slugs, ask Gordon Brown who his beautician is!
Everyday this week when I have picked Beauty up from school she has said HELLO, perhaps the next step will be HELLO MAMA. Now that would be nice.
