furbyWalmart kicked off holiday shopping this week with a list of the seaon’s hottest toys.

The mega-chain brought together 1,000 kids ages 18 months to 10 years to test, play with, and help select the top toys for the season and rolled back the prices on some of the items.

The top toys list features newcomers and classic favorites. New toys topping the list include the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Train Station Playset, Sofia the First Talking Doll and Animal Friends and the Flutterbye Flying Fairy Doll.

A Furby product made the list for the second consecutive year. And, Elmo returns to the list with the new Big Hugs toy.

When it comes to the classics, the Barbie Dreamhouse is expected to be a favorite among girls, marking the fifth straight year a Barbie product has landed on Walmart’s top toy list.

“We are taking the guesswork out of customers’ holiday toy shopping by turning to kids to tell us what the real top toys are,” said Scott McCall, senior vice president of toys and seasonal at Walmart U.S. “Kids told us they want interactive toys as well as classic brands. After hearing this feedback, we did what we do best. We made price investments to offer absolutely great savings on these holiday toys and more for our customers.”
