Hoping to get a head start on your holiday shopping? Retail giant, Walmart, released it second annual Chosen by Kids Top 20 Toys List – a list of toys predicted to be the hottest toys of the holiday season. The list was compiled after putting hundreds of kids between ages 18 months and 12 years old in a room to play with 80 toys and having them vote on their favorites.
