Anyone who has a 3-8 year old probably knows the hottest toy this Christmas is the Fingerling . It’s an interactive monkey, small enough to grasp onto a tiny finger. It does tricks, follows voice commands and speaks. This holiday almost every child wants one but they’re hard to find in stock. Amazon has them now for around $15.
Interactive toys like the Fingerlings are all the rage this year and if you can’t get your hands on a Fingerling,
Here are a couple of options that’ll light up Christmas morning:
Most parents played with Play-Doh for hours on end as kids and Play-Doh Touch hopes to keep its pliable dough relevant by bringing the old-school toy into the 21st century.
A child (oh you’ll be playing it too) creates a design or uses one of over 2 dozen cookie cutters. You place the character on a plastic table of sorts and the Play-Doh Touch scans the design and an animated version shows up on an iPhone, iPad or Android device that’s running the app. On the device whatever the child created shows up within the cartoon interacting with the animated background on screen. The child can make their character or design jump, run, climb and giggle. Kids can create multiple characters that will interact with each other on the screen. The Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio is $25.
Spin Tales is another interactive gift that’s not only a toy but a duvet for the bed and a rug for the floor in their bedroom. The duvet and rug are made of a special material and artwork that comes alive when a child points a smartphone or iPad camera at it. As a bedtime story is read the animated storybook comes alive on the screen through augmented reality. A child can watch as a Little Red Riding Hood character moves throughout the story, playing it out next to them. The child can see real toys and themselves displayed in the animation in real time. It’s amazing to see in person. The rug and duvet are $70 each.
