My kids are 22 and 18 years old, respectively. That means that they're well beyond the age where "what's the hottest toy at Christmas" is even considered in our house.

The hot toys this year include any and everything Star Wars, hoverboards, drones, Guitar Hero, all sorts of electronic gizmos, and of course Lego stuff.
