Update: Hot Toys

A front runner hasn’t emerged in the toy-of-the-season race reports The Chicago Tribune.

But there are some contenders. Something called Squinkies tops the list.

The “soft and squishy figures” can be worn as jewelry, put on top pencils or collected. But more importantly–they’re cheap.

Industry experts say inexpensive collectibles are one sector of the toy industry that has fared quite well in the recession. Zoobles and Sing-a-ma-jigs are also expected to do well.
