Nothing says Christmas more than a child eagerly unwrapping a Christmas gift with the biggest smile on her face. If you are looking for a great Christmas gift for a child ranging in age from three to four years, rest assured that Christmas 2009 has a lot to offer. It really does not take much to find a great gift that will unwrap a great smile and the warmest ''thank you''.

Perhaps the most important factor to keep into consideration is ensuring that the gift is age appropriate. Fortunately, most toys are required to report the suitable age on their box. This should be the first thing to glance over even before checking the price tag. Another thing to consider is that the toy is not a duplicate or close to something the child already has. Nothing is more aggravating than receiving a toy that a child already has played with! Following are some great gift suggestions for the hottest Christmas 2009 toys.

-FuReal Butterscotch Pony

Raise your hand if as a child you dreamed of owning your own pony. Today, you do not need to spend a fortune to buy a horse nor will you need to have a barn. Featuring Fur Real the first virtual pony that mimics a real pony so well, that your child will likely exhibit tears of joy! The pony indeed moves its head, swishes its tail, blinks and responds to touch. The toy is not for children under the age of three. The recommended age is between 4-10 years.

-Fur Real Biscuit My Loving Pup

Next in the list comes Fur Real's Biscuit, a loving pup for all those children that have always wished for a puppy but parents do not think they are ready for it. The cure mutt will teach children proper care. It will obey to six distinct voice commands, it will give its paw, wag its tail and bark to announce that playtime is near. Because of small parts this toy is not suitable for children under the age of three.

-Fur Real White Kitty

While on one side there are those wishing for a pony or a dog, there are those that want a nice kitten to cuddle with. For those households with allergy sufferers or that simply feel their child is not ready for caring for a cat, a virtual kitty can make the perfect present. As most Fur Real toys, this white kitty will move its head ,ears and tail and will also purr when caressed. One word of caution however, as any ordinary cat, this kitty will hiss if its tail is pulled! As other Fur Real toys this toy is not suitable for children under the age of three.

-Zhu Zhu Pets Mr Squiggles

Some children love hamsters so a Mr. Squiggles will make them happy without having to worry about cleaning up messes, being bit or feeding. This cute furry friend will scoot and scamper across the floor providing lots of entertainment. Each hamster comes with its unique personality. Listen it chatter or watch it play as several items may be added to its habitat. This toy is not suitable for children under the age of three..

-Baby Alive Learns to Potty

While many children enjoy pets, there are some that instead enjoy playing the role of mommy and therefore they will certainly enjoy taking care of this special baby that must be woken up and fed by mixing her special food. To make things even more ''real'' this baby will announce when it is potty time and its best to place her on her toilet otherwise an ''uh-ho! will be heard and the baby will go on her diaper or worse-all over you! This doll is not suitable for children under the age of three and balloons should be kept away from children under the age of eight.

As seen , there are several gift choices for this age group. These gifts are not your ordinary gifts so expect to watch your child's eyes glow from the amazement. What better way to instill the Christmas spirit than watching a child unwrap a toy and the biggest smile under a Christmas tree?

Watch this amazing pony in action!
