The holiday season is here, and if you're already making your Christmas gift list, you might be planning to wait on some Black Friday deals.

That's not a bad strategy at all, but if you'd rather avoid camping out early, waiting in lines, and shoving through crowds, you could start seeing which of this season's hottest toys are on Amazon right now.

We found five of the toys kids will be asking Santa for this year and put together this handy list.

Oh, you thought the Baby Shark trend was long lost at sea? Think again! That song's been stuck your kid's head all year long, and they would flip if they unwrapped one of these little guys Christmas morning.

When it comes to Christmas gifts for the kids (and the young at heart), LEGO sets are a no-brainer. With so many options to choose from, your safe bet will be anything Marvel. The Avengers Quinjet builders set is one of the most sought-after LEGO toys this season.

Speaking of the Avengers, Tony Stark's Power Gauntlet would look great under the tree this year too. It's fully articulated, lights up, and just plain looks awesome. It may not be suitable for your younger kids, but kids 12 and up (and nerdy adults like myself) would appreciate it.

Let's face it - Pikachu ain't goin' anywhere. Chances are you played the first Pokemon game for the original GameBoy back in middle school, and now you've got kids of your own who love 'em. You'll both love interacting with this little guy.

Speaking of blasts from the past, there's a new Star Wars movie coming out this holiday season and it's bringing with it a new droid. I got a BB-8 remote control roller a few years ago and I still drive my cat crazy with it. I might have to pick one of these up, too. Your little Jedi will love it.
