Novelty and Interactive Toys

Children of the 90’s, rejoice! Bandai is re-introducing the Original Tamagotchi to our Tamagotchi deprived hands. I remember begging my mother for a Tamagotchi when I first started High School, I was a rebel! I loved toys then, and I love them now. I didn’t care! I rocked my Tamagotchi on my Jansport loop like I was hot stuff, and took care of my pet and showed everyone his poop; yes, this was the original poop emoji on a DOT Matrix screen. This 2018 version is not a re-do, but more a reboot, and will include 16 different styles and will run exactly like the original Tamagotchi from 1997, although the Japanese version was released a bit before the US release. Your kiddo eight years and up will love this, and for $19.99, it’s the perfect addition to a gift for the holidays, to round out a birthday gift, or just because you know your loved one loves picking up digital poop. The Original Tamagotchi will be enjoyed for its entertaining tasks to nurture your little blob to descriptive pet. Parents will marvel about how this tiny toy was so ahead of its time and be so nostalgic about it that the whole family will get one! Choose from generation one or generation two!

Massive Monster Mayhem toys are sure to impress your monster fighting kiddo! If you're familiar with this American Gladiator style show that looks like 90's Power Rangers, then you know you what I'm talking about! Get the blow up helmet and huge blow up fists set for $14.99. Complete your gear with the mace for $9.99. Exclusive to Target, there is also the massive mega ball moon available at $49.99, which is pretty steep, hence why I suggested the first two options! 

I just love these Tiny Arcades by Super Impulse! They are the perfect conversation starter, perfect for gameplay, and for role play! I plan to pair them with our favorite action figures! Seriously, they are the coolest smallest arcades ever! Small in size, big on fun your kiddo or big kiddo at heart will appreciate that you can play your favorite retro arcade games like Pac-Man, Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and my all-time favorite, Frogger! You can grab it for $19.99 (sometimes they are $24.99), but also be on the lookout for series one versions that are little as $16 sometimes! You really do get the best bang for your buck this toy. The mini figures are big on fun!

The perfect gift to show off your yo-yo skills would be with Bandai’s Hyper Cluster Starter Pack! The Hyper Cluster almost looks like a fidget style toy in that you can manipulate the yo-yo in different directions, and adjust speeds based on the type of skin you put on. You don’t even need to be an expert at yo-yoing! You can customize your Hyper Cluster by changing the skin with an arrangement of fun colors and designs! It’s simple to remove, and satisfying to attach with the crank sound - CRANK IT YOUR WAY! Perfect for kids ages eight and up, at the price of $14.99, you can’t beat it!

With three adorable characters to choose from, your little ones will be totally smitten with these cuties! They are sold at Walmart, Target, Amazon for just $14.99.

Lil Gleemerz are the latest interactive plush toy by Mattel featuring sensors and touch points that activate a world of color in these cuties. Watch as their tails light up like a Christmas tree, and press their noses to activate a light show. Four sensor touch points around the doll allow for it to make funny sounds like fart noises, say funny phrases, growl, purr, and more.

More 90’s nostalgia comin’ at ya with Mattel’s re-boot of Polly Pocket. Choose from one of three small worlds like Snowmazing Surprise, Flamingo Floatie, and Cake-tastrophe. Each world has tiny little elements that I know kids will love exploring. I love the Snowmazing Surprise globe with the small toilet in the water closet. The micro dolls are slightly poseable in that they can sit and drink a cup of cocoa, go for a sled ride, or even sit on the toilet! For youngsters as small as four years old, your kiddo will delight in getting immersed in the world of Polly Pocket.

Gifts for Babies, Toddlers, Pre-Schoolers

I love small toys that provide a lot of play time, so toy phones are really the best size for my bag and for my kiddo’s hands. Leap Frog's Chat and Count Emoji Phone is the best get up and go toy for your kiddo.

A child’s first two years of life is so important when it comes to language that 100 Word books are necessary, but when you have a kiddo that literally eats through their books and you’ve gone through two 100 Word Books already it gets to be kind of expensive to support his book-eating habit. When I saw Learning Friends 100 Words Book by LeapFrog at The Toy Insider’s HoliDAY of Play event, I went ballistic. Not only does it talk, teach, sing, read, explain, and is bi-lingual (English and Spanish), the price point is fantastic. My son is one and loves to pretend to read already, and he loves this book so much. You don’t always have to keep it powered on, which is what I do, I let him hear the words in my voice, then I turn it on for him to explore. With options for reading, identification, songs and even animal sounds, this immersive 100 Words book will be sure to add plenty of new words and sounds to your toddler’s vocabulary.
