Pinkfong Baby Shark Song Puppet (Ages 2 and Above)
We all adored Baby Shark as kids and now it's time to let your kids enjoy the Baby Shark song too. Let your little ones sing along with Pinkfong Baby Shark Song Puppet and have fun. To engage the toy, move it in a wave-like pattern and you’ll hear him splash and sing. Even cooler, the faster you move him, the faster he sings. Alternatively, moving him slowly also slows down the song. What’s more, with the new technology, watch as his fins light up when you shake him and blow kisses.
Lego Hidden Side School (Ages 7 and Above)
Let your kids learn to build and have fun while at it. The Lego Hidden Side School is an innovative and interactive game integrated with augmented reality experience. When your kids are done building the physical LEGO structure, scanning it into the app brings the set to life. From there, they can explore the Hidden Side, find virtual keys, solve mysteries, capture the ghosts to stop haunting, and defeat all the boss ghosts. This creative toy set has 1,474 pieces in total. While one hand is busy fighting ghosts on the screen, the other hand has to move pieces in the physical LEGO set to solve puzzles. And get this, the app responds in real-time making it a super cool gift for your kids. Let them battle the ghosts and restore the world back to normal.
Barbie Travel Dream Plane (Ages 3 and Above)
All aboard! Barbie Travel Dream Plane will take you wherever you want to go. Open the top of the plane and you’ll find space enough to seat three dolls. Just like on a real plane, you can buckle up the dolls and get on with your journey. As Barbie turns 60 this year, this is the perfect toy to get your kids for Christmas. The set comes with fun accessories like dining cart, suitcase storage, and food pieces to take Barbie for adventures on a mystery island.
Movin’ & Chat Max (Ages 3 and Above)
From the popular movie ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2', meet Max, the dog who loves his Busy Bee toy. Movin’ & Chat Max is an interactive toy set to keep your kids busy and happy. You can use the Busy Bee to make Max do almost anything from dancing, talking, barking, and moving around. To make it more fun, Max will beg for his toy if he doesn't have it.
FurReal Mighty Simba Roar
Inspired by Disney’s ‘The Lion King’, this life-like Simba toy brings the movie to your doorsteps. FurReal Mighty Simba Roar is a creative and interactive toy that responds to lines from the movie. On top of that, your kids can challenge Simba to a roaring contest and test their vocal power. Simba also reacts when you pat his forehead or feed him his favorite snacks – slimy grubs – just like in the movie.
