Toy Industry going bankrupt in few years

I've seen all the really low prices on toys, because they're no longer fashionable! Here are what children want these days.

The top 10 toys for Christmas 2010, according to the report are:
1.) iPhone 4 (14%)
2.) iPod touch (13%)
3.) iPad (12%)
4.) Kinect for Xbox (6%)
5.) Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters / Kung Zhu Hamsters (5%)
6.) Flip Video camera (4%)
7.) Toy Story 3 Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear (4%)
8.) PlayStation Move (4%)

What’s more amazing is that 39 percent of children in all age categories surveyed wanted Apple products, while 17% of 5-8 yeaer old’s wanted something from Apple, 50% of 9-12 year olds wanted an Apple product and 13-16 years olds requested Apple products 66% of the time.

With 2,138 children polled the numbers should be a pretty accurate demographic for U.S. Children.

You know what? This toy industry going bankrupt thing was already predicted in a videogame called Syberia from 2002 and it got 9.1. I came across it reading Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition and Monkey Island LeChuck's Revenge Special Edition. I do not own the Xbox version.
