1. Attacknids

attacknids

They put ‘Attack’ in the name for a reason!

What more could any boy want than a fighting spider battle robot? The new Attacknids are just that, remote controlled spider robots that even blast disks or balls about 35 feet. With fully synchronised walking actions, these things really do scutter around like their arachnid brothers.

They were originally designed by inventor Jamie Mantzel from Vermont, who had a dream of making fighting robots. After failing to gain any luck with American toy companies, it wasn’t long until the British toy company ‘Wow! Stuff’ hooked up with Jamie to produce these Combat Creatures.

2. Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle

ImaginextA major trend in kid’s toys is combining electronic features with real world toys. Many toy manufacturers have taken notice of the exploding tablet market and have designed toys to incorporate them. The results are some of the most immersive and fun toys for children ever released.

The Imaginext Eagle Talon Castle is one such toy that connects to iPads (compatibility with other tablet types has not been announced yet) and uses it to create a medieval world for the child to explore.

Kids can roam around the castle halls, visit with the king, fight orcs and trolls, fly on their own dragon over the mountains of the kingdom, and even engage in two-player duels with friends and family. The connected app is still in relatively early development but already has a wealth of games and places to explore, and it’s a sure bet that Fisher Price will keep expanding them.

 

 

 

3. Zoomer

Zoomer Robotic Dog

Meet Zoomer, the 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 fully articulated and highly interactive. With its fully articulated limbs, Zoomer has a large range of motion, and with its ‘ball paws’ it can 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. BattroBorg

BattroBorg

You have to move to make these BattroBorg Robots fight it out in the ring!

The easiest way to explain what these BattroBorg Battling Robots are, is to say that they are some sort of cross between “Rock ‘em, Sock ‘em” and a Wii. These boxing robots are very similar to previous battling robots but with one major difference. Rather than controlling them with buttons or levers, these little guys work with a Wii style nun chuck controller. So if the player wants their robot to punch, they have to throw a punch.

The controller registers the player’s punch and the robot will immediately copy the same move. It can be great exercise and well as lots of fun to ‘battle’ with these little robots.

And there you have it, the Top Five Toys for Boys for Christmas 2013.
