Only 2,000 are being produced, so preorder in early January 2011 (they'll be ready to ship by the end of the month). ($49.99; www.poparttoasterstore.com or www.disneystore.com)
From sushi-eating penguins to bunnies that know taekwondo, author Eileen Wacker casts memorable characters inspired by Asian culture in her new Fujimini Adventure Series.
