‘Tis the season… to buy your kids a whole boat-load of new toys, only to watch dejectedly as they ignore them in favor of playing spaceship in the empty boxes.
To make sure you get your kids something they’ll really want this holiday season, you might want to do a little research into the most popular toys out there, according to Twitter.
MediaMiser took a look at the Twitter buzz surrounding this holiday’s top toys in the infographic below. Using the Toys R Us hot toys list and other lists, the media monitoring company has pinpointed the most sought-after toys.
