Remember the Cabbage Patch craze of Christmas 1983?

Cabbage Patch dolls made the top 100 list of all time best toys compiled by Time Magazine a few years ago.

The doll celebrates its 30-year anniversary this year, but parents won’t have to camp out overnight at stores to secure one.

This year, the Toy Retailers Association predicts the top toys of the season will be:

  • LeapPad Ultra
  • Monopoly Empire
  • Monster High 13 Wish Dolls
  • Nerf N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike  CS-18
  • RoboFish
  • Tekstra Robotic Puppy
  • City Coast Guard Lego Play Set
  • Doc McStuffins Doctor's Bag Playset
  • Flying Fairy by Flutterbye
  • Furby Boom!
  • The VTech InnoTab
