Barely October: Toys ‘R’ Us Announces 2009 Holiday Toy List, Christmas Trees Up at Home Depot

According to Toy ‘R’ Us, Quality and Value matter: Value has two components: what consumers pay for an item and what they get for that price. Toys that last for years to come and provide open-ended play are among the most sought-after items during the holiday season. With thousands of toys to choose from, Toys”R”Us stores have the best and broadest assortment of products that offer both quality AND value.

The top toy company, which unfortunately closed their store in Arlington Heights a few years ago, has introduced two toy lists for the upcoming holiday and Christmas season: The ‘Fabulous 15’ and the ‘THE TOYS”R”US 2009 HOLIDAY HOT TOY LIST’ — 36 news toys that offer outstanding quality price and play.
