As much as I support handmade, smart, unusual, eco-friendly toys, there's a part of me that's still 6 years old and can't wait each year for the Toys 'R' Us lookbook for the holiday season. I am fully aware that I'm a large child, but this year the trend might be coming to an end — though there is a giant radio controlled flying shark that could suck me back in. That's right. Giant. Flying. Radio. Controlled. Shark.
Before the Look Book that usually hits your Thanksgiving Day newspapers, Toys 'R' Us usually releases a list of the hottest toys earlier on. The list this year contains 3' tall dancing interactive robots, Legos, Leap Pad tablets and all sorts of things that will require batteries. Check out the full list below:
