Time to Play Holiday Most Wanted Toys

Every year around this time, Time to Play Magazine starts thinking about the hot holiday toys and invites bloggers to see their recommendations.  This was my first “Holiday Showcase,” and I loved having this chance to get hands-on with new toys. The people at Time to Play test every single toy, and they have created a list of the “Most Wanted” toys this holiday season. One of the most interesting things to see is how technology is invading toys, and at the same time the nostalgic feeling of seeing toys that I grew up with being reintroduced to our kids.

Predicted to be the most popular and best-selling toys of Holiday 2012, Time to Play’s Holiday 2012 Most Wanted Toys List is presented by ascending age.
