It might be early, but it's never too early for kids to start asking for things for Christmas. Have your kids mentioned anything yet? What do they want for Christmas? Toys"R"Us has put together its 2017 Hot Toy List, which notes 50 of the year's most-wanted toys. Toys"R"Us says that by releasing their list well in advance of the holiday season, they are able to provide parents with early shopping advice so they can be sure to get that "must-have" gift for their child.

There are a lot of the usual suspects on the list, like Barbie, Star Wars, Lego and Nerf, and some brand-new products that I had never heard of. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Toys "R" Us Hot Toy List. In celebration of the anniversary, they have also released "Geoffrey's Top 20," described as the "best of the best," toys from the Hot Toy List:
