Still wondering about what toys to get as gifts? Well, there is a special list that names the hottest toys for this holiday season. Let’s check it out.

While quite a few retailers already did show their expectation, this list is made by the Associated Press. It’s not a list of the expectations of retailers, but a list made by trends and desires from consumers.

The list has been separated in three main categories: Star Wars, Robotic Pets and Fast and Furious. The last one is not about the movie, but features several other famous franchises as well.
