It’s already almost Fall and the stores’ lists of the 10 hottest Christmas toys 2013 will be appearing right here! We’re expecting all of the following toys to make the list:
Furby is a toy that appeals to all ages and there are new models due out in the fall of 2013.
Following on from the huge hit 2012 Furbies, these new Furby 2013 style toys will respond to interaction from your iPhone or iPad. They have new multicolored fur designs and best of all, they can lay eggs virtually, on an app!
There’s a new version of this market leading tablet for kids out right now, and it’s sure to be a big seller for the holiday season.
You can also get a great deal on the
LeapPad 2 Power right now.
And if there’s a new LeapPad out, you can bet there’ll be a new Innotab too!
VTech have developed the Innotab 3, also out now and well positioned for Christmas sales.
Lego Friends was awarded Toy of the Year at the TOTY toy ceremony in New York, which is like the Oscars for toys.
As well as winning the overall top prize, it pulled in “Best Girl Toy” and “Activity Toy of the Year”.
So this is another surefire winner for the holiday season this year, or for any other occasion between now and December.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
And what about the best toys for boys?
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser pulled in the prize for “Boy Toy of the Year” and the Turtles also won “Specialty Toy of the Year” and “Property of the Year”. So a TMNT toy is likely to be a big hit with your boys!
Up to 8 Turtle action figures can fit inside the Shellraiser vehicle and it has entrances top, front and side for them to burst out into action! There’s a spring-loaded cannon and fold down battle ramps too.
Is your child too young for all of those? No problem.
Continuing the Turtle theme, the prize for the best baby toy 2013 was won by the Tranquil Turtle.
This restful-looking plush toy with a difference helps babies to sleep soundly with a nightlight and gentle music or wave sounds.
It’s a winner with parents too, who need all the help they can find getting baby to sleep!
