Are you crazy for the new Wii U or more of a Nintendo 3DS XL gal? Are you secretly hoping Santa will bring you a Furby too? Or are you nuts about the new Lego Hobbit sets — after all, that many pieces can buy a mom a lot of free time! Tell us what your favorite big-kid toy of 2012 is below, and if we left out your top pick, leave us a comment and let us know.
