UNDATED (WKZO) -- Retro toys are among this season's hottest holiday gifts, if you are looking for a last minute gift. Toy expert Adrienne O'Hara says "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and other 80s favorites are making a huge comeback this year.

Disney's "Doc McStuffins," "Precious Preschool Pals," "Kid-Friendly Tablets" and "Light F/X" also make the list of hot toys for younger children.

O'Hara says items that offer fun, light-up features like the "Illumivor R/C Shark" from Sky Rocket and Minnie Mouse Bow-tique from Fisher Price are among the top sellers for 2012.

Not-so-retro gifts are also hot this holiday season, especially if they are iPads, iPods and iPhones.The Nielsen study reveals Apple devices continue to dominate the list of most-wanted gifts among American children ages six-through-12. Pollsters say it continues a trend seen over the last few years.

About half of the children surveyed wanted a full-sized iPad. Just over a third expressed an interest in the new iPad mini. Young consumers also favored the iPod Touch and iPhone for gifts this holiday season.

According to Nielsen, kids are also likely to ask for gaming systems this holiday. Nearly 40 percent want Nintendo's latest game console, Wii U. Just under a third indicated they want a Nintendo DS. Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 proved appealing to about one-fourth of the children with high definition gaming consoles on their wish lists.
