    Hello everyone, I am a bit early this week with the new HubMob topic, I hope no one minds.  First of all I want to thank all the HubMobsters who contributed to the Thanksgiving HubMob.  So far we have 20 great hubs on the topic.  Thank you HubMobsters! 

    Time is passing by very fast and soon we are going to be celebrating another Christmas and as I heard most Americans do their Christmas shopping right after thanksgiving day then why not start writing about all the entertaining toys that we have tried and tested; our most favourite toys ever or the toys that we always wanted and never had.  Let's hub about all the toys that parents might want to buy this year for their little ones. 

    Some ideas for a HubMob hub on toys are:

    Your favourite childhood toys
    Action Figures
    Arts & Crafts
    Baby Toys
    Bath Toys
    Bikes
    Building Blocks
    Costumes & Dress Up
    Dolls & Doll Houses
    Dominoes
    Educational Toys
    Electronic toys
    Flying Toys & Rockets
    Handheld Games
    Inflatable toys
    Light-Up & Glow in the Dark Toys
    Magnets & Magnetic Toys
    Miniature Cars, Motorcycles, & Trucks
    Puppets & Finger Puppets
    Radio Controlled & Remote Controlled toys
    Skates & Skateboards
    Stuffed Animals & Teddy Bears
    Tents & Tunnels
    Tops & Spinning Toys
    Vintage Toys
    Water Toys & Boats

    To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:

    1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the Answer the Request green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines, AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    3. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/23439/hubm … ew&rss

    4. Add the HubMob graphic to your hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    5. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.  Take advantage of the free publicity!


    If you are still not sure about what is a HubMob and the benefits of taking part in one I created this guide http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-HubMo … o-join-one  please feel free to come up with any questions if you have any doubts left.

      This is my first ever hubmob, hadn't even heard about them until about 4 days ago.

      Here's mine, written straight from the heart, it's a true story of a great toy that I wanted ... and still don't actually have.  Although now I don't have the space for one... but one day, one day, one of these WILL be mine!

      Enjoy!

      You have to start HubMob hubs with the link, "answering" Princessa's "question". See #1 above.  sad

      No, sorry.  You have to go through the 'Answer this request' link that is in Princessa's original post.  Otherwise, you do not show up in the HubMob feed.

      Maybe reslant it for a new hub?

    The roundup hub is live.  Not sure why but HubMerc is not showing up in the feed.  It's in his hub, though.

    I intentionally did not give the hub a Christmas or holiday slant, hoping that people will read for birthdays, etc. as well.

    Here is mine.  I wrote about model rockets.  This was a toy that I loved to play with when I was a kid.  I found that it is still pretty inexpensive to do.  It is a good toy for girls and boys, and something that you can do with your kids.  I am going to try it again, I have a couple of grand kids that would like to try it.

    Please do keep the HUbMob going, you are all doing a great job creating awesome hubs!  Do not forget to keep us all updated about any "first page" that you make or any high traffic reports to your hubmob hubs.  We all like to hear about Your success.

    I think Soni is right!  On Monday, I thought I would have nothing to offer on Toys.  I must be a real dolt.  It took me a day to realize I actually know LOTS about toys, just not the high tech kind.

    I'm not doing this but I did come across a keyword for My first toys and thought it would be a good idea for some of you. Maybe you could add wooden rocking horses and rocking toys to it. There is lots of scope. Good luck everyone and one day I will join in when I feel I have gained a little more experience. Oh and I thought maybe a hub on toys to invest in like vintage and the real old fashioned rocking horses.

    I followed all the instructions - answered the question etc but the RSS feed (although it works when in edit mode) then comes up as invalid after I have published - help me someone!!!

    Also the hubmob graphic which displays in edit mode disappears after I publish. 

    I have done a hubmob before and didn't have this problem.  What is the matter with me now?  Why won't it work?
