Toys R Us recently put out its Fabulous 15 list, which are the toys the company thinks are going to be the top sellers of the season. 

Here are a few from the list:

Sofia the First Royal Talking Vanity. It's over three feet tall, has a drawer, mirror and a secret compartment. It also talks. This one is a Toys R Us exclusive, currently priced at $79.99.

The Ever After High Royal & Rebel Dolls. These dolls are the next generation of fantasy characters. For example, there's the daughter of Sleeping Beauty and the daughter of the Mad Hatter, currently priced at $19.99 each. 

Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave, Agnes and Gru Collector's Edition Figures. They talk, and move their eyes, head and mouth. They even respond to you when you talk. I kinda want the minion for myself. I was playing with one last weekend. These are also exclusive to Toys R Us, currently priced at $54.99 to $69.99.

LeapPad Ultra for ages 4 through 9. It's an educational seven-inch tablet with eight GB of memory. It comes in green or purple and has a camera. It also has a built in mp3 player and ten free apps. It's currently priced at $149.99.

Skylander SWAP Force starter kit for Nintendo Wii. Currently priced at $74.99.

According to dealnews.com, waiting longer than Black Friday will get you the better deal. In a recent article, it stated that shoppers who bypass Black Friday toy shopping can save up to 37 percent. And, last year, nearly all of the toys on the Fabulous 15 list saw further price cuts in the first two weeks of December.
