We start our Christmas Shopping December 26th, that being said it is about to get nuts! Time to start hunting down those must have toys for Santa to put under the tree. Christmas time gets crazy and those hot new toys will become scarce. Who wants to relive the LeapPad hunt we had last year? Not me.
Toys’R’Us has put out their 2012 Holiday Hot Toy List and is taking reservations for these items. You will have the option to reserve these toys at TRU if you choose to. I can tell you know I know several items that will be on my hunt list. Wheather you’re into reserving the toys and paying *gulp* full full price or you’re wanting to taken on the challenge of the hunt, keep in mind that Amazon can be your best friend.
Consider adding these items to your Amazon Wish List and watching the prices. You can sign up for Amazon Prime and enjoy the Two Day Shipping that comes along with it. As you know Amazon prices can be crazy low or ridiculously high. All depending on the demand for the item. You’ll see this with the first hot toy from Disney listed below.
If you’re planning to purchase from Toys’R’Us, you’ll want to check out the 2 Day Shipping Offer they have through ShopRunner. This operates pretty much the same as that of Amazon, however, you have the option of using this service through several other popular online retailers. Check it out HERE.
Here is the list of the Top 15 Hottest Toys for the 2012 Holiday Season. Note that I have included the price from Toys’R’Us as well so you can better judge when the Amazon price is rockin’.
