Bronx mom and blogger Geanine Cilenti has created a list of the top toys she says will be flying off the shelves this Black Friday and holiday season.
If you've got a techy kid, first up is "The Leapfrog Epic." It has all different kinds of educational games, apps and eBooks for ages 3-8, and even comes with a rear-facing camera.
If it's a new video game console you are looking for, Cilenti says it would have to be the Nintendo 3DS XL, which retails around $200. 
And if you are not looking to break the bank, Cilenti says the Vtech Smart Watch is a cool option for just $65.
Cilenti predicts "Lilly" by Furreal Friends is also going to be a hit this holiday season. 
She says "Frozen" merchandise is still hot, like the new sing-all-day Singalong Elsa, which retails for around $40.
Another voice every parent knows well, a brand new Play With Me Elmo has 150 responses and eight games ready to go. 
And for the kids who are creative, how about letting them make their own stop-motion movies with Disney's "Imagincadium Story Mation Studio." Children can make their own characters out of clay, use paper cutouts of Mickey and Minnie, choose their own background and then with an app from their tablet, record different scenes. The item retails for $30.
