WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Today, we kick off our Hot Holiday Toy segments with a look at the toys your kids will love this season.

Even before the holidays, kids have been going loony for looming.

And they can get real creativewith theCra-Z-Art Shimmer 'N Sparkle Cra-Z-Loom bracelet maker. You use the loom to weave the rubber bands into all sorts of creations you can wear. They can do single, double, triple links, even add charms and bracelets. The price is fantastic, $14.99 for ages 8 and up.

And, for your little one, there's the VTECH Roll & Learn Activity Suitcase. It is portable. It's got all kinds of fun interactive things you can do with your small child. Sing songs, work on fine motor skills, you can open the suitcase, and store the pieces. Kids from 12 to 36 months will get a kick out this. It's $36.99.

This year, most of the toy companies donated two of each of these toys so that when they are donated to the Marines' Toys For Tots campaign, the children will get the chance to open the toy on their own!
