Toys R Us has releaed its annual hot toy list for 2011, also known as the "Fabulous 15." This is a list of toys expected to be the most popular during the holiday season. The toys on the list range in price from $20 to $100.
Parents, whatever you do, don't let your kids seen this list. Kids, print this list out for your parents in triplicate, so they have no excuses come December.
At number one is the Air Hogs Hyper Actives from Spin Master, while coming in at number two is the Air Swimmers eXtreme from Animal Planet.
Number three is the Lalaloopsy Silly Hair Dolls from MGA Entertainment and at number four is the LeapPad Explorer Tablet by LeapFrog (below).
Further down the list is the Sesame Street Let's Rock! Elmo which sells for under $60 at Amazon (video below). Elmo comes with a microphone, tambourine, drums, and instructions. If only earplugs were included for poor suffering parents, it would be perfect.
The list continues with a FIJIT Interactive creature that has voice recognition and beat detection capabilities to move to music. It also includes more than 100 catch phrases and jokes. Again, sadly, this toy does not come with earplugs for parents.
One of the cooler toys is the Nerf Vortex Vigilon, a disc-shooting gun for only $16. This may bring back memroies of 'A Christmas Story' when Ralphie wanted a BB gun, but his parents warned, "You'll shoot your eye out."
