Toys “R” US publishes a list of what it perceives to be its best toys to give to children during the coming holiday season (think Thanksgiving and Christmas).
To that end, Toys “R” US spends an entire year looking at new toy product lines, playing and testing out the newest toy creations so that it can select the “best” of the best for its yearly list. This list is intended to give parents, grandparents and anyone wanting to buy a gift for children, a sort of guideline to aid them when buying presents.
