Halloween has come and gone, which only means that the holiday season is approaching—AH!! If you're one of those early-November Christmas shoppers, then you'll be happy to know that Google has released their top lists of trending toys from coast to coast. From returning toys, like My Little Pony and ty Beanie Boos, to newer favourites, like Peppa Pig and Max Steel, some of these trending toys may (or may not) surprise you.

The top toy search in Canada was for Bumblebee—the yellow Camaro/robot from the Transformers series. The latest film in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, was released in June of this year, and surprisingly, Bumblebee beat out other all-around classics, like Barbie, Spiderman and LEGO toys.

Here are the top trending toy searches across Canada:
