sorry..this one i can't help as much. i feel like i answered a tv question a long time ago that dealt this this topic, but i think it may have been in the community section or something. at the time i was searching for tv, so i had a better idea of the ideas. anyways..
720p vs 1080p: the higher the number, the better, generally. keep in mind that if you want 1080p, sometimes you don't really even see the difference unless you purchase a tv that's about 37" or larger. if you go smaller than that..then it might not be worth it go upgrade to the 1080p.
Plasma/LED/LCD: they all have their own pros/cons. plasma started the thin tv craze back in the day and it was very popular, however according to people, technology has improved with LED and LCD. also battery life sucked. plasma used to get about 5 years, and you'd have to replace it, whereas LCD could get up to 10 years, but you could replace the bulbs. this is old data, though. nowadays they say that battery life is pretty comparable, so that shouldn't be an issue anymore.
sorry..some of my data may not be current anymore, nor accurate for that matter. just trying to go off of what i recall.
as for popular deals..electronics are usually pretty big. 3D tvs are in..but i prefer the wi-fi tvs. on DP, i think any deal is sought after. a deal's a deal. as for kid toys..i guess that depends on age range. lots of new stuff with consoles..i mean the new xbox, the red wii, the big dsi..cool stuff..
there is a section of posts for toys under "games" or for kids under "other." hope this helps.

Yeah typically a 32" tv you will be fine with 720p anything larger than that it would be wise to go with a 1080p tv. It really depends how far away from the tv your seating is. The closer you are the more you will see pixels. As far as what it means. 720 and 1080 just means how many lines of pixels the display will have.
In most regads Plasma and LED tvs have better contrast than an a standard flourescent lit LCD. LED tvs are still and LCD but are obviously lit with LEDs instead of flourescent. Plasma uses more power but has better viewing angles and better video motion. If want bang for the buck DLP tv's offer giant screen sizes for a fraction of the price of LCD or Plasma and they arent the same old big heavy projection tvs of the past. My Mitsubishi weighs in about 70 lbs for a 65" screen. My old Olevia 42" LCD weighs almost that much.

bowers the LG I just submitted is great bang for the buck. Free shipping and only $539 for a 42" 1080P LG which is top 3 best manufacturers. From a very reputable dealer. That same TV is $711 on Amazon. https://www.dealsplus.com/product/lg-42ld520-42-inch-1080p-120hz-hd-lcd-tv2
