A TOY question for all the Lounge smarties....
Since you know, DU'ers know everything... :)

A friend of mine is looking for the following:

"Here we go... (my son) saw a commercial with some type of car
I think it is remote control
It appears to be silver
The front wheels possible (and front of the car) possibly rotate (to flip the car or upright it if it flips)
I saw one nanosecond of the commercial and he hasn't stopped asking for it and he asked Santa for it!"

Anybody know what this toy is?!

Thanks!! I'll ask her to keep an eye on this thread!

4. Tell the kid there's no such thing as Santa.
Problem solved.

8. LOL
Actually, I know plenty of people (us included) who aren't making a big deal of the "santa" aspect of Christmas... I know too many adults who have vivid memories of learning that Santa wasn't real, and how painful it was for them.

6. I know exactly what she's talking about
but I can't remember the name of it. I'll ask my son when he gets home from school. He might know.
