Ugglys; $34.99

I haven't met a kid yet who didn't find bathroom humor absolutely hilarious. So it's no surprise that everyone loved a dog that burps and farts.

Six-year-old Evan declared it "awesome," and was begging to take it home, but I had to check with his mom first. She found it almost as funny -- hey, she has three boys at home.

The toy is made of a rubbery plastic, and its rear end is open so you can put your hand in it -- akin to a puppet. The dog even comes with its own adoption certificate, so there's more to it than just the 30-some gross noises. A definite hit.

Wow most of these are stupid expensive. Not very practical if you have more than one child to buy for.

Adamat- I have to agree. Aside from the xbox, these aren't really group pay toys, and would probably cause a lot of fights in a house like mine. I have 4 kids, all close in age. They would all want turns all at once, and the things would probably be broken in a week

Some of those toys are creepy to me & I would never buy them no matter how much my kids wanted them.  About 3/4 of those toys cost a lot more than I am willing to spend on one toy.  I did like the crayon melter, but would never spend $50, more like $20 or $25 at the most.  The ballon toy is just a redone verson of a game they had in the 70's when I was a kid.  Luckily we celebrate Hanukkah & I did my shopping long ago.

All of these toys are revamped 90s toys.... Skydancers treasure trolls the crayon melting thing, ugly dog looks like a crude version of the DOGG toys I had. The monkey fur realz toy looks like Monchichi form the 80s. Legos are classic, remote control planes, nerf guns (I love those) the tablet is a glorified pixter lol the balloon game thing is from the 80s I believe or similar to one. The Xbox one is just like my old super Nintendo I got for Xmas one year. My point is I can't afford half of this so I'm going to the goodwill to buy the same thing anyway. :) my kids will loveit just as much if not more.......now does anyone know where I can buy a poochi :)

Yeah, what happened to reasobably priced toys? My whole budget is about $100 per kid, im not going to blow it on a crayon maker and a pillow.. Like instead of the fairy, which she wan5ed, , I found a 2 foot tall very pretty fairy doll at walmart for my daughter for $10. You can find alternatives to the expensive stuff. And $500 for an xbox? People are losing their minds if they are buying that. I was on the fence of buying the disney infinity for my kids and it was $60. But theres 3 of them so they can share
