Similar to Tinkerbell, Flutterbye Fairy is an enchanting toy. A UV LED light makes the fairy glow and sparkle as she flies around in her clear globe home, attached by unseen wires. She can speak to one's owner, dance to music and even sleep when the shades are turned down. A tap on her globe wakes her back up in the morning.
All indications is that this item is sold out online. Even Amazon does not have it in stock. (Update: The toy is now available here from Amazon.)

Devastator is the ultimate evil weapon in the Transformers battle of bad versus good. The massive action figure is made of six smaller construction vehicles known as The Constructicons. When combined, the resulting mega-robot boasts flashing lights and sounds from the 2009 movie.
Toys "R" Us toy expert Bob Friedland says the Devastator is, hands down, his favorite toy of the season. "It's a refreshed, totally revamped version of the classic Transformers toy." (Buy here.)
