Christmas is right around the corner and Toys R Us has released its hot toys list.
Apparently the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are hot again (what, 25 years later?).
I’ll take the Wii U, Santa.
Anyway, from the Associated Press:
Toys R Us has come out with its annual “hot toy” list that includes tablets for kids, fashion dolls in the likeness of boy-band sensation One Direction, and even retro hits like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Furby.
There’s no indication yet of a runaway success like 2009’s Zhu Zhu Pets stuffed hamsters and last year’s Leapfrog LeapPad tablet. But Toys R Us executives are betting that if there is, it is on their list.
Here are the top 15 toys on Toys R Us’ list. The complete list of 50 can be found at toysrus.com/hottoys. See it after the break here.
