NEW YORK — Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) fired its first volley in the holiday pricing wars this week, slashing prices on toys and calling it an "aggressive move to lead the market on holiday savings."

That could be good news for consumers looking for deals but bad news for other retailers as Wal-Mart, the world's biggest retailer, tries to drive shoppers into its stores with ever lower prices this holiday.

"From the department stores on down, it's going to become a very price-conscious Christmas," said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst at The NPD Group.

Well seeing that nearly everything is made in China, I'd be careful buying toys. There are small stores that sell toys made in the US and other countries that are safer. Yes, more expensive, but lead free.

Wal-Mart is like Meth: many people get addicted to the former's prices-------even self styled Conservatives who preceive themselves to be true-blue Americans.
