2012 Hot Toy List (Buy Now If You Want To Ensure You Get One)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Toys R Us has just released the top 2012 toys for this holiday season.  When toys are on this list, they could easily become sought after, which makes it difficult to find them as we get closer to December.  I’ll share the list now, as well as some links and prices so that you can buy it now if you want it.   I remember the Leappad fiasco last year and would like to help some of you avoid that this year if I can!

One other thing to keep in mind in regards to these toys — many of them will not be on sale as they are on the hot list.  We “might” have a coupon on them come November, but more than likely no deals come Thanksgiving and beyond.
