Majority of my nieces, nephews, and godchildren are between the ages of 8-12. At this age range, kids start to be picky about their toys. Some don't like childish stuff but teen toys may not be appropriate for them either. I've noticed that they are observant of the toy trends since they spend a lot of time watching Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon shows. What do you think are the hottest toys this year? I would like to give something meaningful that will last longer, but I am also looking for trendy items.
