What Do Your Kids Want For Christmas

Furby Boom


What do your kids want for Christmas?

Lots of retail­ers come out with “hot toy” lists every hol­i­day sea­son, but this year Wal-Mart decided to try some­thing dif­fer­ent: let kids rate their favorite toys.

In a first, about 1,000 boys and girls aged 18 months to 10 years spent time over a three-day week­end in August in Dal­las play­ing with 50-plus toys and choos­ing their favorites. The result is a top 20 list of kid-approved toys, out Thurs­day, that includes a new robotic pet Furby, a hug­ging Elmo and a Bar­bie dream house.
