Skylanders and Wii U make the cut for Toys R Us' Fabulous 15

Skylanders Giants has made the Toys R Us 2012 Fabulous 15 Holiday Hot Toy List for the second year running and is joined by other game-related items like Nintendo's Wii U console and a Gears of War Erector Set.

Getting a much-coveted spot on the Toys R Us Holiday Hot Toy List can significantly boost the sales of a product leading into the Christmas season. The Fabulous 15 contains the 15 most highly recommended toys for the season as decided by the toy retailer, with an additional 35 toys and games making the overall Hot Toy List.

The Skylanders Giants Start Pack and Wii U console share the top spots with Furby, One Director Collector Dolls, and Doc McStuffins Time For Your Checkup Doll.
