Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Reuters is reporting that Toys R Us Inc is betting on variety to hit its sales targets this holiday season, with toys ranging from Mattel’s $13 plush toys that sing in perfect harmony with every squeeze, to a $110 remote-controlled monster “Bigfoot.”

The world’s largest dedicated toy retailer is also offering more exclusives and opening more temporary stores to win shoppers this year.

Its holiday hot toy list, to be officially unveiled on Tuesday, features 36 new items, including squishy pencil-toppers called “Squinkies,” “Disney Princess & Me” dolls from Jakks Pacific (JAKK.O) and a Lego board game that dares kids to wade through a tricky maze to reach a hidden temple.

The top picks also include educational toys like “Leapster Explorer,” a $70 handheld gaming device that could double as an e-reader and even a photo-and-video recorder for kids.

Toys R Us’ “Fabulous 15″ top picks includes Monster High dolls, offsprings to famous monster characters, and Hasbro’s Cuponk, a game that challenges players to master ball-and-cup tricks using a wall.

“Our list has a wide range of prices on it,” Harnisch said. “So depending on parents and gift-givers’ budgets, we do have gifts for every … giver.”
