Quick Look At The Coolest Christmas Toys Of 2012

The best toys of 2012 blend traditional elements with new technology. However, conventional toys still offer great play value. Many people are already predicting the top selling toys for 2012. Some of the best toys include LeapPad 2, Web Shooting Spider-Man,and Twister Dance. However, most people think that Furby will be the hottest toy this year.

The brand new Furby toy is loaded with all the latest technology. He has returned with a complete digital makeover. The upgraded furry friend has LED eyes and can even work with the iPhone. The new one builds on the success of the original. The original toy was introduced in 1998 and went on to sell a lot of units in just 3 years. The new one has more believable emotions because of its eyes. Thanks to more sensors, he can even respond when he is tickled or fed. Each doll is capable of developing its own personality. One problem that we found with this toy is that it is very loud. You can't turn off your little furry friend. You have to take care of it. If you want it to be quiet, you actually have to place it in an area with no light. Children can also download an app that works with Furby. The app can be used to feed the toy. At first, Furby doesn't speak English but kids can use the Furbish to English dictionary to translate what he is saying.

The advanced technology is a big part of this toy's appeal. Many of the top toys for 2012 find new ways to implement technology. We are seeing a lot of old toys being updated with new technology. For example, the new Twister Dance is a twist on the old Twister game. In Twister Dance, the object is to move your feet on the correct spots. The game features music from Britney Spears. It also allows you to add your own music from your iPod. The only problem that we had with it was that the game doesn't actually keep score. Perhaps that is something that they can add next year in the next iteration.

While technology is helping to create newer and better toys, children will still play with their toys the way they did in the past. Kids will create their own new adventures and use their creativity in new ways. It's really about having fun. In the past couple of years we have seen technology become a large part of the toy world. The secret to a top selling toy is a toy that successfully blends traditional play with modern technology.

There is no doubt that technology is moving very fast. We are seeing the toy world mirror the tech world. In the tech world, every year we see a new iPad. In the toy world, every year we see a new LeapPad and InnoTab. Modern technology is influencing the toys that companies create. Toy companies are trying to create kid friendly versions of gadgets that adults normally play with. However, technology can still be used with older themes. Conventional toys will always be around. Building toys like Lego are still very popular with both teenagers and kids. Lego is not going to disappear anytime soon. In 2012, they are introducing two new lines. One line introduces Monsters to the Lego world. These sets contain glow in the dark pieces. There is also a new line for girls called Lego Friends. These sets are brightly colored and covered with pink and purple.

The toys that will remain popular are the ones that offer the best play value. Truth be told technology is only one component. The best toys of 2012 have something a little "extra." We have now to recognize that people want toys that offer the best play value for their money.
