Posted on September 27, 2005

The annual picks of the top toys of 2005 have begun. Toys "R" Us has announced their list of the toys they think will "be the top choices of children this holiday season." Their list of the very best includes 14 different toys.

The list includes digital toys like the FLY Pentop Computer, Game Boy Micro, Iz from Zizzle and the upgraded Furby from Hasbro. Other items on Toys "R" Us' best list include LEGO Vikings Fortress, a 1,019 piece theme set where brave vikings try and defend their castle from the the Fafnir Dragon with a catapult and Bratz Rock Angelz Tour Bus, a tour bus for the Bratz dolls that includes a cruising lounge, primping station, smoothie bar, chill-out loft and a real-working Jacuzzi.

Some toys for very young kids also made the list including Giggles and Coos Baby Doll, Laugh & Learn Musical Learning Chair, Thomas & Friends Aquadoodle, Roll-A-Arounds Drop & Roar Dinosaur and Tumble Time Tigger.

Tumble Time Tigger is a plush toy that is sound activated and can perform some stunts as his name suggests. Toys R Us says the Tigger toy can tumble, cartwheel and perform handstands. He also utters several phrases, such as "Guess how many tumbles I'll do next" and "you look kind of funny from here." Tumble Time Tigger requires 6 AA batteries, which are inserted in his feet.

Update:: Tumble Time Tigger works best on hard floors. One of his tumbling songs is a variation on MC Hammer's monster hit, "U Can't Touch This." Take a look:

Note: The Tigger toy was discontinued in 2006 according to Mattel. The tumbling toy is now only available from third-party sellers on sites like Amazon and eBay.
