If it were up to me, there would be no mention of the toy-giving holidays until long after the Thanksgiving leftovers have been polished off. But, I’m human and intensely curious, so when Kmart invited me to the unveiling of the Fab 15 – the Hottest Must-Have Toys for the Holiday Season; I was powerless to resist.

And when I discovered that Kmart would be giving away these hot toys every day starting now and throughout the holiday season, I had to share this news with you (even if we’re not yet ready for the holiday spirit.)

Fab 15 Smile Guarantee

Rico Rodriquez, Kmart’s “Fun Ambassador” and Modern Family child star, hams it up as he reveals the Fab 15 in this video, but he’s serious about toys, “As a kid, there’s no greater excitement than to get to ‘test’ the toys that everyone will be talking about – and that’s what I get to do as Kmart’s ‘Fun Ambassador,’” said Rodriguez. “We played hard to narrow down the list to the top 15 toys on the market. Our goal was to make sure each entry on the list will bring a smile to every kid’s face on Christmas morning. You can take it from me when I say: Mission accomplished!”

Parents will appreciate that the list of hot toys this season includes many fun and educational toys at affordable ($29.99-$99.00) price points:

  1. Let’s Rock Elmo
  2. Fijit
  3. I am T-Pain Microphone
  4. Barbie Designable Hair Extensions and Doll
  5. Lite Sprites Lite Wand, Prisma and Pod
  6. Redakai Championship Battle Tin
  7. FurReal Friends Cookie My Playful Pup
  8. Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster
  9. Mini Lalaloopsy Treehouse Playset
  10. WWE Colossal Crashdown Arena
  11. Transformers Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime
  12. LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet
  13. Lazer Stunt Chaser R/C Vehicle
  14. Simon Flash
  15. Dora Fiesta Favorites Kitchen

Armed with with list, parents can take advantage of Kmart’s Layaway Plan, which allows shoppers to secure the top holiday gifts now before they are sold out later in the season. Who knows? Maybe eliminating some of the holiday stress will put a smile on parents’ faces too.

Chance To Win

And for the biggest smile – you can win toys and even a dream shopping spree! Kmart is also encouraging kids to share which specific toys on this year’s Fab 15 list will make them smile the most. Starting today and continuing throughout the holiday season, families can vote on their kids’ favorite Fab 15 toy. For every vote submitted, participants will be entered for a chance to win one of the Fab 15 toys, which will be given away every day.
