EDISON - Good news for Santa's helpers: Toys R Us has released its list of the hottest toys for this season, and a few old favorites are popular again.

Many stores say they're already selling out of the hottest items, including Legos, the Leap Pad 2, Tabeo and Monster High. Stores say they are continuing to receive shipments of these popular items, however.

Some older toys making a comeback include the new and improved Furby, along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and G.I. Joe.

Another hot trend in footwear is 'Stompies' slippers, which look like little animals whose ears stick up when the wearer stomps.
