Holiday hot toy list released

Sesame street's 'let's rock! Elmo' not only made the Toys R Us holiday hot toy list, but also what the retailer calls its 'fabulous 15'.

Other top picks include Figit Friends, radio controlled miniature racing cars called Air Hog Hyper Actives and the Nerf Vortex Vigilon foam dart gun.

36 Toys are on the store's holiday hot toy list this year.  That includes stuffed animals that play off the popular smart phone app  angry birds.

Analysts say the holiday season accounts for about 40% of a toy seller's annual profit.
