big_footWhen I think of BigFoot, cute and cuddly is not typically what comes to mind, but the new BigFoot the Monster toy may be changing that.  This new Fisher Price toy is topping wish lists for the eight and under set this year.  It’s a toy that works with remote control and can do everything from tossing a ball to taking a nap. 

This BigFoot monster is emotional, too, and comes smart enough to say “Excuse Me” after he burps.  The four year old boy down the street from me loves that–the burping part–while is mom is a fan of the manners.  His three year old sister is a bit afraid of this BigFoot , but I honestly think that probably makes her brother like it even more. 

Maybe your travels are taking you to places known for other legends and you can use a toy like this as an opportunity to talk about topics such as Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster.  Or maybe you just appreciate the fact that it’ll keep your child happy for hours while you’re stuck in the car (or airport).  Either way, if you have a little guy on your list to buy for this holiday season, you may want to consider this.  Heck, even my five year old daughter would like it if I put a bow in its hair (and you know BigFoot has to have hair!).  The only down side is the price, which is close to a hundred dollars.
