PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, now that we've identified the hot - and I mean that literally - toy for Christmas this year, we're going to ask them what will be the must-have toy for Christmas 2016. But first let me tell you that support for NPR comes from NPR stations and Lumber Liquidators, a proud sponsor of NPR offering more than 400 styles, including hardwood, bamboo, laminate and vinyl with flooring specialists in hundreds of stores nationwide. More at lumberliquidators.com or 1-800-HARDWOOD. Lumosity, offering a 10-minute fit test to challenge memory, attention and problem solving with brain games to calculate baseline scores and build a personalized brain training program. Performance can be compared to global averages.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Tom Bodett.

TOM BODETT: Now that we have the Netflix socks, we're going the whole nine yards. We're going to go with the Netflix underpants. Stay tuned. Next Christmas, we'll tell you what they do.

BILL KURTIS: And if any of that happens, we'll tell you about it on WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME.
