RUSS Shining Stars friends are a great chance to get your favorite little one a stuffed animal with a special bonus. This stuffed animal comes with a chance to go to the international star registry and name your very own star. Stuffed animal wise, this company offers a variety of options like dragons, dogs and others. The stuffed animal is not the best for the money, but the addition of the star registry is great. I personally love to get these for friends and family, and most will find it to be a unique and fun gift. Pre-teens will love the toy and even boys will love the star they can name all their own, along with the website having loads of fun interactive games to go with the toy. Get to the stores fast, these will be hot toys this year that everyone will want for the holiday season. Overall, a fun gift that is unique and cool enough for a variety of people!
