I'm laying down a marker here: the toy that every child will want this Christmas and that parents will be desperately hunting for through stores on December 24 is the Teddytaur. It's half teddy bear and half centaur. Rocket News 24 reports that this stuffed animal by the German toymaker Steiff measures 30 inches tall and sells online for about $410. And it's worth every penny!
Don't go after cheap substitutes, like a merfish doll (half mermaid, half fish) or harpoach (half harpy, half roach). When your child opens the gifts under the tree, you'd better make sure that a Teddytaur is there.
