Toys"R"Us, Announces 2012 Holiday Hot Toy List

Giants from Skylands, an Angry Bird Luke Skywalker, sewer turtles and unique monsters are amoung the toys expected to top kids' wish lists this holiday season!

TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Each holiday season, parents attempt to awaken their inner child as they scour the aisles for toys and games that will bring squeals of delight from kids as they rip off the wrapping paper.  To provide Canadian gift-givers and parents with a starting point to create their shopping checklists, Toys"R"Us,  Canada today unveiled its annual Holiday Hot Toy List packed with 15 new items that offer exceptional value in quality, price, and maximized Pay-Per-Use (PPU) .  As the world's leading dedicated toy retailer, Toys"R"Us spends the year tracking trends and new product releases worldwide to discover the best toys to include on its Holiday Hot Toy List.

For Baby's First Holidays and new parents needing helpful gadgets to make life a bit easier, Babies"R"Us, Canada today unveiled a Top Baby Gift List to complement the Holiday Hot Toy list.

"The Toys"R"Us Holiday Hot Toy List and Babies"R"Us Top Baby Gift List showcase the items that our experts anticipate will be the most sought after items this holiday season- the gifts that will bring smiles and laughs to the faces of little ones across the country," said Liz MacDonald, vice president, marketing, Toys"R"Us, Canada.  "To ensure all the toys and baby products listed will make the most impact on the toy and baby scene this holiday season, they have also been reviewed, tested and approved by Julianne Bisnaire, our 13-year-old Chief Play Officer and Karin McPherson, our Babies"R"Us spokesMOM."

Julianne has also developed 15 videos, that can be found at www.toysrus.ca/toyvideos, which showcase just how cool the toys on the Hot Toy List really are and to help gift givers choose between them. Thanks to the Toys"R"Us Chief Play Officer, parents and gift givers alike can now become toy experts before their kids even open their gifts.

With 72 Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us retail locations across Canada, more than 40 Toys"R"Us Express stores and a full breadth of products on its e-commerce sites, Toysrus.ca and Babiesrus.ca, the toy retailer is the hub for all things fun. As Canada's Greatest Toy Store, Toys"R"Us offers a truly unique experience for gift-givers, including:

Toys"R"Us' Toy Book Launching tomorrow, this 64-page book is jam-packed with exclusive deals, amazing savings and every plaything your child could dream of receiving this holiday season. The Toy Book features an unbeatable selection of the hottest toys complete with an easy-to-use 'toy finder' navigation system, which categorizes toys based on colour-coded themes, such as Preschool, Toddler, Imagine, Create, Impulse, Construction, Learning, Girls, Boys, Board games, Outdoor & Vehicles, Music & Electronics and Video games.

Toys"R"Us Price Match: In addition to the 'Everyday Low Prices', Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us also offer Canadians a 'Price Match' policy, to ensure its consumers are getting the absolute best value possible.  With this policy, Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us retail locations will match any advertised price, and as an extra bonus during the holidays, provide the consumer with 10 per cent of the difference back, via gift card.

Toys"R"Us Express Stores:  While smaller than full-size stores, Toys"R"Us Express locations carry many of the same products.  These Express stores, many of which are located in areas without a full Toys"R"Us store nearby, provide local residents with easy access to the latest toys, games and more throughout the holiday season. With greater accessibility to the toys kids want, customers can discover the joy of play easier than ever.  Shoppers can visit the Store Locator on Toysrus.ca for the Toys"R"Us Express Store in their neighborhood.

Online Wish Lists: To help grant gifts the easy way this holiday season, Toys"R"Us offers an online gift registry called " Wish List" Using Wish List, parents and kids together can create a tailored list of toys based not only on what the child wants, but on his or her age, interests and abilities. Simply email the Wish List to family, parents and gift givers and it becomes a great resource in their quest for the perfect present. Additionally, Toys"R"Us is running a 'Wish It and Win It' Sweepstakes this holiday season where customers can enter to win a $1,000 Toys"R"Us gift card and dozens of instant win prizes of $25 gift cards ! Customers can create a wish list and enter for their chance to win at Toysrus.ca/wishlist .
