Trendy Holiday Toys

News

Robots are a trendy toy for the whole family this year.

Star Wars fans love the BB-8 droid. It reacts to your voice and learns about you the more you play. The droid can work with apps on your phone. Robot animals are on the list for those who want pets, without the mess. The Wowee Chip lets you roll a smartball that it will catch and bring back to you. It charges on a smartbed and can learn tricks when you give it rewards by tapping a button on a wristband. The Anki Cozmo uses facial recognition to know who it’s talking to. The robot has its own personality and a knack for playing games.

All of the robots are appropriate for kids ages 8 and up, but most need apps to work.

Awkward Christmas gifts are also a talker this year. An annual survey by Careerbuilder showed the most unusual presents people have gotten are from their colleagues. Two left handed gloves, a coconut bra, a jar of gravy, a fake lottery ticket and a stuffed duck are all on the list.
