Here is the list of Top Toys for Christmas 2013

1. Attacknids


They have ‘attack’ in the name for a reason!

Our number one recommendation is Attacknids Fighting Spider. What more could any boy want than a fighting spider battle robot? The new Attacknids are just that, remote controlled spider robots that blast disks or balls about 35 feet. With fully synchronized walking actions, these things really do scutter around like their arachnid namesakes.

Controlled by a handheld remote, they can scurry over rough terrain, shoot and attack. Perfect action toy for energetic little boys this Christmas.

2. Flutterbye Flying Fairies

Flutterbye Flying FairiesThese adorable flying fairies are already a big hit with young girls. They are ‘hovering’ fairies, flying right over your hand with sensors. Fun and cute!

Remote controlled cars, helicopters, and planes have long been the province of boys and men. They were designed to look manly and perform to the extreme, and finding girls interested in the area was something of a rarity. In line with the recent move to create feminine versions of popular toys to more closely align with traditional girls’ tastes, Spin Master has created the Flutterbye Flying Fairies, a remote controlled helicopter that is actually a fairy.

Buy Flutterbye Flying Fairies for your little girl this Christmas.

4. Zoomer

Zoomer Robotic Dog

Zoomer Robotic Dog

Zoomer is the new robotic dog from Spin Master that looks like a Dalmatian puppy. This is the most advanced robo-dog on the market today, they say. Zoomer is highly interactive, and with his fully articulated limbs, he has a large range of motion, and ‘ball paws’ to help him play on any surface.

Zoomer can also act and move just like a real playful puppy, wagging its tail, rolling around and crouching. He also has voice activated commands and can learn when he is played with. Zoomer will respond to “roll over,” “play dead” and “go pee.” And he is fast!

5. Furby Boom!

Furby Boom

Furby Boom! is already a huge hit this Christmas

This toy became very popular last year (2012), and is predicted to be very popular again this year. You can hatch and raise virtual Furblings with your Furby Boom, and play games together using the free Furby Boom app. Collect and hatch virtual Furblings to fill your city in the Furby Boom app, and try to get the golden Furblings egg.

Use the Furby Boom app to give your Furby Boom creature virtual food, checkups, showers and more. Furby Boom will remember the name you give it and the names of other Furby Boom friends it meets. This Furby has more than twice as many possible responses as the previous one, and how you treat Furby Boom will shape its personality.

6. Big Hugs Elmo

Kids love the interactive “Big Hugs Elmo”


The show Sesame Street and its furry characters have always been a favorite of children and adults alike. With many characters having been made into toys, the ever popular Elmo is given new upgrades each year to cope with this demand. Each new edition has seen Elmo become more and more interactive.

Taking this to a new level is Big Hugs Elmo, which has already become immensely popular. Big Hugs Elmo is 22” tall and made of delightfully cuddly soft plush fabric and he responds to hugs and cuddles. He is interactive enough to feel almost like the “real thing.” He sings several songs, including a lullaby when he’s being rocked to sleep, and can actively encourage the child’s imagination with different suggestions of pretend play.


7. Teksta Robotic Puppy

Teksta Robotic Puppy

Teksta Robotic Puppy

Our next toy suggestion for Christmas 2013 is the adorable new Teksta Robotic Puppy. Teksta is a life-like robotic puppy that responds to your voice, physical gestures, lights and sounds. Engineered with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence, Teksta can emulate many emotions… barking, crying, whimpering, and expressive eye patterns to share his feelings.

As your devoted companion, Teksta will fall asleep when the sun goes down and will wake up happy to greet you in the morning. Snuggle with him, or let him guard your door. With cutting edge hand gesture technology, you can not only command Teksta to stop and sit, but also teach him to perform his most spectacular trick of all, a back flip!

With over 100 physical and interactive play features, Teksta will excite and inspire children of all ages. Check him out at Amazon now…


8. Necomimi Brain Wave Cat Ears

Necomimi cat ears

Note: That’s NOT a microphone you see over her forehead. It is a Brain Wave Sensor!!

The high-tech Necomimi looks like a simple set of cat ears users wear on their heads. Behind this simple appearance, however, lies a very sophisticated system of sensors and motors. The sensors are placed in strategic locations on user’s foreheads and earlobes to accurately read and interpret their brain waves.

The motors engage to move the ears in response to the waves it senses. If the wearer is alert, the ears stand straight up. If excited, they wiggle around. And if relaxed, the ears lay down on top of the wearer’s head. The motions are intended to be reminiscent of an actual cat’s, and they succeed admirably in that ambition. Be one of the first to have a set of Necomimi Brain Wave Cat Ears!



9. The Lion CHI Temple Lego

Chima Lego Set

The Legend of Chima

Looking for cool Lego sets this year? The Lego Lion CHI Temple features a large CHI orb, waterfall, golden CHI, lion gate, drawbridge trap, hidden lion bikes, eagle fighter, cannon, tower, prison, and secret entrances! Aim the tower cannon and fire the shooter. Fold up the walls to store it.

Restore peace to Chima in a battle at The Lion CHI Temple! An epic battle for the CHI has begun at the majestic Lion CHI Temple.

Great little companion robot.





2. Attacknids Robot

attacknidsIf you’re looking for more of a combat robot, this is what you want to get. The Attacknids are like giant spiders with six legs, and several different ways of shooting things. They can navigate over rough terrain and have a battle with other robots or each other. Or you can use them to knock down a Lego tower, dominoes or other stuff. Plus they look really cool. These are controlled by an easy-to-use remote control. Great for shooting stuff. Has ‘attack’ in the name for a reason!

3. RoboMe Robot on Wheels

robome-toyRoboMe is a cute little robot with two arms, that moves around on a wheeled base. You put an iPod or smartphone on him for his head. You can program this little guy to do lots of things. He will ‘learn’ new things as you use him and interact with him. He has a fun and funny personality. Put him in ‘roam mode,’ and he will explore his environment and talk as he moves around.



4. Sphero the Robotic Ball

Sphero_GreenSphero is a great new robot toy ball you control with your smart phone. It’s about the size of a billiard ball, and you can make it roll fast or slow, left or right by tilting your smart phone. It has about 20 games and apps you can download. You can race it or do an obstacle course. It can even roll through water. It can also be used as a controller for video games and some other ways. A shout out to for helping me discover this one! It’s gonna be big this Christmas.



5. BattroBorg Battling Robots

battroburg-smallBattroBorg is another exciting robotic fighting game. Two motion-controlled robots slug it out in a ring, controlled by you using a Wii-like device. You win by hits to the face or a knock-down. You can battle against ‘targets’ for practice or against an automatic opponent, a drone. You have to move your hands to make the robots move and swing. People really get into this.




6. Robosapien Humanoid Robot

robosapien-humanoid-toy-robotThis guy can walk, which most of the others can’t. With your remote control, you can make your Robosapien Robot walk, turn, back up, talk, and swing a fist. He is 14″ tall and is pretty flexible and fast. Pretty tough, too; it would take a lot to break him. He knows kung fu moves, and can pick up and hold things in his ‘paddle’ grippers. He comes with 67 programmed responses, and can learn more. Since he’s remotely controlled, he’s not really, technically a robot, but he is very cool and most boys would love to have one!





7. Zoomer the Robotic Dog
