With Christmas 17 weeks away, one big box store has already announced their top toys of the holidays.

Before you know it, the most wonderful time of the year will be here. Have you asked your kids what they want Santa to bring them? I have already started my holiday shopping and a new list has just been released to help you find that perfect gift this year. Walmart has put out the Toys of the Holidays list which is rated by the hardest critics around: kids.

There are three categories for toys: Interactive & Collectible, Make'em Move, and Life-Like Licenses. So what's the hot toy for 2017? In the Interactive & Collectible category, for the second year in a row, Hatchimals top the list. However, be careful Mom and Dad (and Santa) as a new version is coming out in October. Also making the Interactive & Collectible List:

In the Make'em Move category, the Frozen Sleigh (Walmart exclusive) wins the top spot (this thing looks freakin' awesome). It's like a Power Wheels vehicle, but looks like a sleigh covered in blue (of course). Also making the list:

And finally in the Life-Like Licenses (where kids can bring their favorite characters to life) the Imaginnext DC Super Friends Batman Batbox Xtreme. Ummmm that's a heck of a name for a toy. Here's more of the top toys in this category:

In the weeks to come, I'm sure we'll see plenty more lists and "top toys". But don't wait too long, or you'll be paying way more for the hot items (if you can find them at all). I mean, at least we have a head start and can plan and SAVE.

Let the countdown begin.
