The Top ‘Must-Have’ Toys For Christmas 2012
As the festive season approaches once again, it’s about time we unleash the official list of the top must-have children’s toys for Christmas 2012, which this year features a grand total of thirteen technologically inspired, up-to-the-minute bundles of fun. Chosen by the Toy Retailers Association (who know their stuff), the list is a heady combination of old play-time favourites revamped for the techno-generation along with altogether new and super high-tech children’s gadgets.
One such techy gadget is the InnoTab 2, a touch-screen tablet for kids with superb learning and educational benefits. Download apps which help children to improve their maths, logic, spelling and creativity with fun games, activities and e-books. The Moshi Monsters continue their global take-over and find their way off-screen and in to our living rooms with My Moshi Home, an offline toy-set which comes with a secret code for a limited edition, rare-breed Moshling online.
Old time-defying favourites include the enduring Cabbage Patch Kids, LEGO’s epic Lord of the Rings: The Mines of Moria set and Twister Dance, where disco divas world-wide can plug in their MP3 player, follow the spots and dance to their favourite beats.
The list also features our unshakable furry friend, the Furby. Just in case you thought you’d seen the back of him, he returns in hyper-Furby form, packed-out with transistors and a ton of additional furry features, including LED eyes, an iPhone app increasing interactivity, and even the capacity to react to, and ‘learn’, human words.
