SLIDESHOW: 8 Hottest Holiday Toys of 2012
5. WWE Brawlin' Buddies
Before the season began, toy industry tracker Time to Play released its predictions of the most popular toys of the holidays. Included on that list was the WWE Brawlin' Buddies line of stuffed wrestling toys. And sure enough, Kmart tells us the Brawlin' Buddies -- essentially, small pillows shaped like pro wrestlers -- are among its four top sellers.
Kids ages 3 and older can body-slam and toss around the tiny wrestlers, and snuggle up to them at the end of the match if they're so inclined. They come in the likenesses of various WWE wrestlers, including John Cena and Rey Mysterio, and sell for $29.99 each. Some characters may be unavailable online, so you may have to check a few local stores to find your kid's favorite wrestler.
