For the 17th consecutive year, students at HISD have made their picks for the best toys this holiday season.

The fifth-graders from Longfellow Elementary School announced video games and Easy-Bake Ovens are tops for 2016.

Play-Doh came in #3 for the girls.

Video games were #1 for boys.

"The annual toy survey allows students to interact with younger grade levels by getting their classmates' opinion on this holiday season's most wanted toys," said program organizer and first-grade teacher Danica Kasner in a news release.
