Toys "R" Us Fabulous 15 2009: Hot toys of the holiday season

When I think of the holidays, I think of "A Christmas Story" playing for 24 hours straight on TBS, mall Santas (Santae?) that smell a bit too much like gin for our comfort, pine needles showing up in the darnedest of places, and Toys "R" Us' Fabulous 15 List.

Even though it's way too early to think about Christmas shopping, the big toy retailer has unleashed it's prognostications about what it feels will be the must have toys of the upcoming holiday season. Parents should take heed: Toys "R" Us has had a good track record in this arena, so chances are Junior will be a screaming, tear-stained, runny-nosed mess if he doesn't find one or more of these toys under the tree / menorah / Festivus pole this year.

As the prices will fluctuate throughout the season, the list we've compiled is merely for reference purposes. Please check to find the best prices on these items throughout the holiday season!

Without further qualification, here are the "Fabulous 15":

And there you have it! All joking aside, with the list covering all ages / genders / tastes, there's simply NO reason why you can't buy something from this list for a child in your life. In fact, NOT buying them something from this list means you don't really love them enough. True story.
