Once I get school going at Granny's House and get the fall routine in place, and especially once there are a couple of crisp, cool days, my thoughts turn to the coming holidays. One of my fall rituals is checking the toy section of the Amazon Movers and Shakers list each day. Have you discovered this? It's a ranking of all the toys Amazon sells based on which ones have skyrocketed in popularity, and with 13 grandchildren to shop for it's become one of my fall friends!
If you watch this list, be careful...sometimes something has skyrocketed because it's got bad reviews and evidently Amazon needs to get rid of bajillions of them, so they mark it down ridiculously low. And since a lot of people "bite" at a low price, disregarding the customer warnings, it jumps up 30,000% overnight. But this IS the place to watch for specials and for new toys you might not have been aware of. If you see something on the list you think you'd like to purchase and the price is right, grab it...often the price goes up thirty minutes later and though it will still show up on the M&S list because of so many people buying it, the price will have returned to a level that doesn't make it worth buying.
