Which new toys do kids like the most this holiday season? News 12’s toy test has the answers. We’ll show you what the older kids age 5-12 chose as the best of the bunch. 12 On Your Side has the results of our toy test.

What kid doesn't like playing dress up? And the after-school students at Little World of Learning especially enjoyed this Star Dressing Room. And it worked great with the accessories from another toy they tried, the Princess Dress-Up Game.

"They just love it, we only let so many go in, they don't want to come out when we tell them," said Charlesetta Newman, instructor.

Another Dora toy, Dora Candyland was one of the favorite board games.

AcceleRacers and the Acceledrome track can keep kids entertained for hours, although it takes some time to figure out how to set it up. This toy actually makes candy, so of course it was a sweet success with our testers.

"The candymaking they love - because it's candy,” said Judy Divine, instructor.

And if you think that toy looked messy, this is another to lay the newspaper down underneath, but it is fun, the Lite Brite Flash Art painter.

The Challenge 20-Q game was a fascinating toy for any age. Just think of something, anything, the toy has 20 questions to try and guess it. Usually it does. And the kids tested plenty of electronic games they liked this interactive baseball.

This Coleco video game pack comes with 12 games included and plugs right into the TV. It’s a lot simpler than a Playstation or X-box but it's definitely appropriate for all ages.

And on the low tech and traditional side, the Barbie's, this year with the Prince and Pegasus, are still favorites
