Walmart Chosen by Kids Holiday Toy Top Picks

September 13, 2013 | Posted By: Heather Stephens | Categorized in: Shopping, Gift Ideas, Black Friday


Want to know what the top toys of the holiday season will be? Walmart has announced their "Chosen by Kids" top toy picks for the holidays! They gathered 1,000 kids between the ages of 1 1/2 to 10 years old to play with toys and vote on their favorites.

This list was a surprise, as we've been awaiting ToysRUs to announce their Fabulous 15 as they have in years past. Walmart beat them to the punch with this announcement. It will be interesting to see how the ToysRUs list compares when it is announced.

I definitely see some exciting things on this list for my almost 6 year old son. The Disney movie Planes was a big hit with him this summer, and the remote control plane Dusty Crophopper will be on his list for sure. We've all loved the Crayola Crayon Maker from a couple of years ago, so my guess is that the Crayola Marker Maker Kit will be another that makes the cut for my girls and son. And the HotWheels Triple Track Twister Track Set looks like so much fun...I bet my husband will be putting that one on the list.

Check out the entire list of Walmart Chosen by Kids top toy picks below! Remember to shop Walmart with Cash Back through FatWallet! They are currently in a cash back sale, offering 2.0% Cash Back (was 1.0%). Most of the toys have free shipping to the store!

We'll be sure to keep you updated with more Holiday Shopping and Black Friday announcements as they happen!

Which toys will be on your kids' lists this year?

Happy shopping & happy weekend!

:) Heather

    Oh, Heather, I usually enjoy your and the others' posts here, but please...!! Let us have a bit of fall and maybe even Halloween before we start the Christmas talk. (I'm saying that nicely, btw) I know people need to plan and save, but geez...isn't this just a bit too soon?

    Hi CPenn,

    Thanks for the comment. I really appreciate your feedback. We're just now getting into the homework routine in our house and I understand that the holidays keep getting earlier and earlier every year.

    My job here at FatWallet is to share great deals, great money-saving tips, and report on news in the shopping space. That including news from big merchants who are already laying the groundwork for the holiday season. We're sprinkling in the Black Friday/Holiday Shopping content as it comes in, but our main focus is on bringing you great blog posts for now as well.

    We had a fall family activity post last week. We've got lots of Halloween stuff coming up including a Halloween giveaway going on now! And I'm planning for a fun costume post to publish next week. Are there other topics would you like us to cover that interest you this time of year? Please feel free to share your ideas with me any time! (blog (at) fatwallet.com)
