Whether you’re a parent who is buying a toy for your own little boy or girl, or you’re buying for someone else’s child this year, you want to know what the hottest trends are in the toy department so that your gift recipient is sure to enjoy it.
#1 – Hunger Games Toys
This November, the second Hunger Games movie is scheduled for release in movie theaters nationwide. That means Katniss and her accessories are going to play an important role.
One great toy is the Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow that lets them pretend they’re the star of the second movie in the series – Catching Fire. This toy has foam darts that blast up to 75 feet away.
#2 – Barbie’s New Digital Dress
This item is what every little girl wishes her future was like. With the simple push of a button, your child can change Barbie’s outfit. It’s a neat LED dress and your daughter can choose a built in graphic design or customize it using her own creativity.
The dress’s graphic design can move to music – or even your child’s voice. She can use her finger or a stylus to set the design up and then watch as it lights up and matches Barbie’s always-perfect accessories, too.
#3 – Furreal Friends Cuddles My Giggle Monkey
When it comes to lovable fake animals that we give our kids, nothing will beat out the Furreal Friends Cuddles My Giggle Monkey this year. It’s an interactive monkey that’s really cute.
Not only is she responsive to your child, but she’s very giggly – and that’s contagious for your kids! When your child makes her go upside down, the monkey senses it and responds. When it’s put to bed, it closes its eyes and goes to sleep. This is a toy that will be at the top of many lists for Santa Claus this year!
#4 – The FirstBIKE Street Bike
The FirstBIKE Street Bike is a different kind of first bicycle for kids – and it’s a perfect present to be left out under the tree this Christmas! This is the bike kids need to learn to ride on.
You can adjust the height so it grows with your child. It’s a bike with no training wheels – so this is the version they use before they get on a real bike and learn how to ride it.
#5 -Laser Maze Logic Game
Kids love laser games – and this is an awesome new board game made with lasers that challenges your child’s brain. It has levels from beginner all the way to expert stats.
This is a single player game where you pick a challenge card based on difficulty. Then you set up the board as shown on the card and try to position the token so that the laser lights it up correctly. There are tokens that include the laser, checkpoints, targets, mirrors, splitters, and more.
