"Star Wars" Electronic R2D2 and a new spin on Hasbro's popular "Pie Face" game both made the retailer's top 25 toys list, as chosen by kids. Perennial favorites Barbie and Nerf also earned a nod, with the Rainbow Cove Princess Castle Playset and N-Strike Elite HyperFire Blaster, respectively. Paw Patrol, My Little Pony and Hot Wheels also made the list again.
Hundreds of kids between 18 months and 12 years selected their favorite toys. Six of the retailer's 400-plus exclusives made the cut, including "Pie Face Showdown," which will be sold only at Wal-Mart for a limited time.
The original version of that game was one of the most popular toys last holiday, selling out from many retailers' shelves. This year's take allows two players to face off against one another. Whoever is slower at repeatedly punching a button is slammed in the face with whipped cream.
