Top toys

Barbie plays second fiddle this year

Every year, the National Retail Federation releases a list of the top toys for the holiday gift-giving season based on a consumer survey. And for the first time since the survey began 11 years ago, Barbie is not No. 1 for little girls. Instead, parents plan to buy Disney’s Frozen dolls. Whatever their little princesses desire… Here are the top five toys for boys and girls for 2014:



Cars and trucks

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Video games

Hot Wheels


Disney Frozen


Dolls (generic)

Monster High dolls

American Girl
