LeapTV Educational Gaming System
Another one of our super hot toys Christmas 2014. It’s funny. Among us older folks, when we talk about the games people play, we still refer to the good, old-fashioned games we used to love. It’s a little embarrassing to be admitting this to the kids because for them it is all about gizmos, innovative gadgets and high-tech devices and systems, the names of which we can’t even seem to make any sense of. X Box one? Wii? PlayStation 4?
You’d think these were code words coined for a Martian invasion! Seriously though, while the very young ones may not yet be into these, they certainly are no strangers to them. So that surely, you won’t see them groping when they’re introduced to LEAP FROG TV.
Leap Frog TV
Leap Frog TV is one of the latest gaming systems geared towards kids 3-8 years old with a definite stress on getting them to learn new things. It’s got a 3-part system, consisting of : 1) the gaming console, 2) the controller and 3) the sensitive camera that can sense motions and movements. These are the three key components you need to play the game in 3 distinct, different ways.
3 Fun-filled Ways to Play Leap Frog TV
1. The Body Motion : Here’s how it works. Your kid can hop, jump, kick, parry or do karate chops which will control the action on the screen … and he’ll see himself on TV!
2. Pointer Play : Using the controller as a pointer and allowing your kid to have this serve like a sword, baseball bat or rope with which to swing on, (depends on what game he’s playing) your kid can move, turn or twist it like never before and enjoy the games’ motion-controlled fun.
3. Classic Control : Your kid can shake and tilt the controller for a fast moving game play and some super-charged thrilling action.
Leap Frog TV Features and descriptions
The entire system has a color scheme : mostly white with some contrasting green highlights. The console which is about 7 inches in diameter and has a 1.5 inch thickness looks like a small dinner plate. You can lay this flat on a surface or prop it up, using a stand that comes with the system.
In its front, the console has a slot into which the gaming cartridges are inserted. On each side of this slot, you’ll see a power button and a jack for the head phones. On its back is a USB port to connect the camera into and there’s an HDMI-out port for connecting the console to your TV. The HDMI cable, likewise comes with the package.
The controller’s top portion is rounded. At its base are 2 handles convertible to a pointer when you press a button on its left side and twist it upwards. It will connect to the camera and the console without wires via Bluetooth.
The motion-sensitive camera is equipped with an adjustable mounting device you can clip onto the top portion of your TV, adjusted to capture the action-moves of you kid. It’s a color camera with 640 by 480 resolution.
The Game Cartridges
It is from these games the kids will get all their thrills and opportunities to learn. These includes, a sled game where the kids are prompted to look for alphabet letters, while a karate game steers him towards the correct identification of shapes.
Mother Knows Best
All of these modern high-tech gizmos and gaming systems, (not to mention smart phones tablets and androids) have reportedly, sort of “alienated” parents from kids, who are so caught up with these hard-to-stay-away-from devices. Among certain groups or communities, their relevance has spawned some debate. Mom who knows her kids best is key to resolving this issue as it affects her family.
MIP Balancing Robot
This is a pretty cool balancing robot created by WowWee. It runs on 4 AA batteries stands about 8 inches tall but the really amazing thing about it is the self-balancing abilities with a ton of personality.
It has an App and also a gesture controlled and sound controlled IR sensors which are just some of the fun features available.
One of the really cool features on the MIP robot is the gesture control. There is a blue light sensor at the front of the robot and by doing certain hand gestures in front of that sensor the robot will respond in a number of specific ways.
For example, if you want MIP to roll backwards all you have to do is move your hand towards its face. It will sense your movement and proceed to roll backwards all on its own.
So with your hand gestures the robot can move forwards, backwards, left and right. Real easy.
MIP Robot modes
MIP has many different modes and to choose which mode to use all you have to do is turn the right wheel. As you turn the wheel the color of the robot’s chest sensor will change to indicate what mode it is in.
For example, if you choose “roaming” the sensor on the robot’s chest will turn yellow. Then you just place the robot on the ground and it will self-balance and begin to roam around independently.
Due to its sensors MIP will not bump into things. If it gets too close to an object it will sense that and just switch directions.
You can put MIP into dance mode and it will begin to play music and dance away all on its own. With the special app the robot will be able to dance to the music you play through your iPhone.
There is a fun little game in “cage” mode where the robot needs to try to escape from your hand gestures that keep it within a certain boundary. If the robot escapes it sounds off with, “Oh yeh!”
If you put MIP into “trick” mode you can program a bunch of movements for the robot to do in one session. Once you have programmed the hand gestures into the robot, (just by moving your hand), you just clap your hands twice and MIP will then execute the commands you just programmed.
You can program up to 50 commands in one go. So you could essentially program the robot to go deliver something with its tray….such as a glass of water to your friend…..as long as they were not too far away and not up or down any stairs.
MIP robot app
The MIP Robot app will open up a whole different world of playing. The extra modes are:
- Drive Mode: By using your iPhone via the app you can remote control the robot.
- Cans Mode: The app allows you to feed the robot all different kinds of cans which are the robots food. The cans can be sleepy, happy, angry, etc. Once you feed your robot via your app the robot will respond to the commands within the can.
So if you add a “sleep” can the robot will begin to snore and then suddenly fall on its back as if it is totally exhausted. That is very cool and fun to watch.
That is just one of many fun cans to feed your MIP.
- Dance Mode: Will allow MIP to dance to different music played off of your iPhone.
- Battle Mode: You need two MIPs for this. So with more than one robot you could have fun battles.
- Boxing Mode: Again you will need more than one robot for this.
- Path Mode: All you do is draw a path on your iPhone screen and MIP will follow it in real life.
- Stack Mode: This is a fun stacking game where you try to stack as much as you can on MIP before the time runs out.
MIP is your personal servant
There is a small tray that comes with the robot. If you attach this tray to the front of MIP it will be able to carry stuff on it.
Just for fun you can put all kinds of things on the tray and watch how MIP tries to re-balance itself so it does not topple over.
A quick look at MIP, the interactive robot friend. It is going to be a hit with its many features and functions including all the mini games, IR sensors, it makes sounds, it has its own language, it follows commands and much more.

Digibirds Interactive Toy Birds
Basically what these cute little birds can do is sing 20 different songs and the way you can get them to sing those songs is by whistling. However, you can also use the special ring whistle that comes in the pack, to command your bird.
The Digibirds also have a bunch of fun movements that are pretty lifelike and blend with the songs. When you put more than one of these birds together they will sing in a chorus.

Max Tow Truck Vehicle
Max Tow Truck
The Max Tow Truck really can pull up to 200 pounds in weight….it has been proven! Now that is pretty amazing for such a small toy truck. Let’s go over some of the tow truck’s features. It is a very interesting truck because it does a lot more than it looks like it would do.
So how does the truck get its traction? Well, when you first glance at the tires it looks like they need to be pumped full of air. In actual fact that having airless tires is one of the keys to its traction because the low amount of air inside allows for getting good traction.
Turn on the truck from a button at the back and immediately it greets you with the phrase, “Hey buddy”. This is just one of 50 different phrases.
You can hear the truck engine ticking over as it waits for your choice of commands. There are a number of different modes available. You can push the siren on the roof of the truck which will put it in climb mode. To get the truck moving just shift the gear stick at the back of the toy truck.
By pressing the bumper at the front you will put the truck in push mode. This toy tow truck is pretty big and solid and it also comes with a chain which allows the Max Tow Truck to pull stuff.
You just attach the chain to the back of the truck and the clip at the end of the chain can be clipped onto whatever you want to pull.

Yes, this toy tow truck comes with an app for your iPhone or tablet. You can play a bunch of games on it and generally have a lot of fun with it.
In virtual play mode you get a virtual tow truck that you can drive around on any background that you choose to view within your real-time environment.
This truck will push, pull and climb. It runs on 6 C batteries so you don’t have to constantly be recharging.
Zoomer Zuppies – Scarlet
Let’s first check out some of the basics of this hot Christmas toy for 2014.
Inside the Zoomer box you get a training guide, some stickers / tattoos and Zuppie Scarlet. The Zuppie takes three AAA batteries and you will need a Phillips screwdriver to open the battery compartment which is located underneath the toy.
Zuppies Scarlet Design
- Scarlet has dual LED eyes which show all the modes and expressions.
- The top of the head has touch sensors where you can tap or rub for different responses.
- The nose can be pressed to make sounds or to confirm activity selections.
- There are chest sensors that detect hand movements.
- There is a back button used to go through different modes and to check happiness level.

Getting the Zoomer Zuppie Started
The on and off switch is located at the bottom. Once you turn the pet robot on you can tap the head to get some really fun responses such as barking or panting from little Scarlet.
If you press the back button you can check the happiness level of Zoomer. An image shows up on the eye screens which will tell you whether the robot is happy, sad, angry, etc. Use the booklet that comes with the toy to decipher what each of the images mean.
To go to activity mode push the back button and simply swipe the head to scroll through the activity games; much like scrolling with a computer mouse.

Hot Wheels Street Hawk Remote Control Flying Car
This Street Hawk from Mattel is a toy that is exciting as it is innovative. There is so much to really like about this Hot Wheels flying car.
Right out of the box it is about as easy as it can be to get going. You need to install 6 AA batteries into the controller, (batteries not included), then plug it into the vehicle to charge it up.
Charging takes around 40 minutes for the initial charge and then you will see the lights turn from red to green meaning the flying car is fully charged and ready to go.
The connection between the controller and the car is real easy too. You switch on the car and switch on the controller and they will be paired up automatically.
You can drive the toy like a traditional RC car by clicking the selector switch on the car to the correct position. If you want to fly the car you need to switch to flight mode. When you do this as soon as the car begins to accelerate it will take off and fly.
Taxing and taking off for the car was so easy to control. This is an extraordinary feat of design that will make you the envy of the park or the neighborhood when you get this Hot Wheels flying car into the air.
There are a couple of things to be aware of. The flying range is incredible at 200 feet and it has an advanced 2.4 gigahertz transmitter that will allow up to 6 vehicles to be operated together.
It does take about 40 minutes for the initial charge and with that you will get 5 to 6 minutes of run time. When the car starts to get a little sluggish plug it in and charge it up and you will be back in business more quickly.
When flying give yourself plenty of space. While the controls are very easy to use especially compared to other RC vehicles this does need a lot of room to fly. The learning curve on this is a fraction of what you will find on other flying RC toys.
Frozen-Themed Gifts For Kids
Hollywood movies have always had an impact on our lives.
Disney’s animated feature film FROZEN is one monster hit that has captivated the hearts of kids around the world. It tells of a story of Snow Queen Elsa and her courageous sister Anna’s and rugged outdoor man-friend Kristoff’s search for her to end an icy spell.

A few of these are :
Frozen : A Sister More Like Me
This enchanting picture book brings to life in wondrous colors, the original story of the two royal sisters, Princess Elsa and Anna from the wintry kingdom of Arendelle. What may be an added interest is the fact that all the illustrations in the book were done by one of the artists involved in the film-making.
Sparkling in their Frozen movie look-alike colorful costumes, young girls who’ve experienced the magic of the movie would surely enjoy shuffling the pieces and getting them all together again and again.
Disney Frozen Sparkle Kristoff Doll
Naturally inspired by the box office hit, Frozen, this doll has got Kristoff garbed in rugged mountain clothes for another fascinating adventure. His rough-hewn gray pants, striking blue shirt and a thick long vest suggest it’s going to be a long rough search for Princess Elsa.

Razor Crazy Cart
The Razor Crazy Cart is so much fun you won’t even believe it until you have a go on it!
Razor Cart Basics
The cart has a top speed of 12 mph which is really fast considering how low you are to the ground when you sit in this thing. This thing really moves!
At the back of the cart is the mini engine where the on/off switch is as well as the charging plug. There is a lever to the right which lifts up the back of the cart to create the crazy stunts.
There is of course a gas pedal and a small steering wheel used to control the crazy cart.
The 5 Main Features
Ok, so there are five main features of the Razor Crazy Cart that you need to be familiar with before you get driving around in it.
The first three of these main features are the steering wheel, the front drive wheel and the gas pedal. These are all found on the front half of the Crazy Cart and control the carts drive.
To make things easier when steering there is an arrow on the steering wheel. Wherever the arrow points that is the direction the cart will go in.
The gas pedal is variable speed so the harder you push it the faster you will go.
In the back half of the cart you will find the last two features. There is a drift handlebar to the right of the cart and the seat. The drift bar will control the carts drift.
How to Drive a Razor Crazy Cart
The cart has two modes. The first mode is called go-cart mode. The drift bar will be pushed down and all wheels will be pointing forward so that you can drive in a straight line; much like a go-cart.
What makes this cart different from any other go-cart is Crazy Cart mode. All you need to do is lift up the drift bar while driving forward which will make the cart rotate.
There are countless different moves you could try out while in the “crazy” mode but there are three basic moves you are going to need to learn right away.
Those three moves are “Spinning in place” “Driving in reverse” and most importantly, “Learning how to stop”.
Spinning in place
One of the best features about this hot 2014 Christmas toy is its ability to spin in place so that you are never stuck in a dead-end. The cart’s steering wheel allows you to spin in place with ease.
Driving in reverse
To drive in reverse all you have to do is point the arrow on the steering wheel back at yourself and at the same time pull the drift bar upwards. Hit the gas pedal and off you go…backwards.
Learning how to stop
Like skies or a snowboard the Crazy Cart does not have a break but that does not mean you cannot stop safely. The trick to safe stopping is to redirect your momentum so you can slow down to a stop.
To stop, you first remove your foot from the accelerator, turn the steering to the right or to the left and then pull up the drift bar so that you spin to a stop.
Generally when learning how to ride the cart you don’t need to be going fast. Practice going slow first and learn when to use the drift bar at the right moments.

Quick Dry Design Station – Moose Toys
Beados are basically all different colored beads that you can put together using different templates. You spray them with water and when they dry they will be stuck together in your chosen design.
Firstly, the difference between this new set and the older “starter set” version is that this product actually dries the design for you so you don’t have to wait around for too long.
This set is for ages 4 and up and includes 500 beads. The set does need batteries so make sure you have 2 AA batteries available.
Inside the Beados box
You get the Beados Quick Dry instruction manual which is very easy to follow. You get the actual Beados machine and the batteries are super easy to install.
Instead of a pen that came with the starter set this particular set comes with the Beados tweezers, a couple of design trays and a few design templates to use. You also get a nice Beados tray so your beads don’t get lost or roll anywhere and some mini suction cups where you can place your finished designs to be viewed.
You get 500 beads and the colors are yellow, purple, black, red, white, pink and blue. You also get a tiny spray bottle that you can fill with water. When you are done creating your design all you need to do is spray it several times with the water and then the beads will fuse together. Once the beads dry off they become one piece.
Making your Beados design
First place a design template in on of the holders. Then use your tweezers to pick up the beads one at a time and place them in the correct position in the template to create your design. Then spray a little water on the beads.
Slide the holder underneath the fan and then turn the fan on. Keep the fan on for about 15 minutes.
Little Live Pets Tweet Talking Birds – Moose Toys
This interactive talking bird is just one of a collection of 8 different birds that come to life when you play with them.
Turn a bird on and you will hear 30 different calls. The bird can also whistle several classic songs such as London Bridge, Yankee Doodle or Bingo.
You can also record your own voice and have the interactive pet bird play it back to you. Just press the button and speak into the bird’s sensor which is located on its chest.
With a touch of the button you can play what you said back to you but the bird also may just decide to randomly repeat your phrase as you play with it.
To nurture your bird hold it in your hand and stroke its head and back. The bird will respond to your touch. These Little Live Pet Birds are adorable collectable pet birds that are fun to play with or just listen to.
These birds are sold separately or they are also available as a single bird in its own little colorful birdcage. The cage will allow you to put two birds together so as you build your collection there is even more fun.
This is basic interactive fun in a collection of cute and colorful characters designed for kids ages 5 and up.
Keep an eye out for the Little Live Pets Bird Cage: My Love Birds 2 Pack Romeo & Juliet. This little team of lovebirds are bound to be a hot hit this Christmas 2014.
Xeno Monster Toy
Xeno, Your Marvelous, High-Tech Interactive Friend
Decades ago, there were those beautiful dolls which were flaunted on display windows and show cases of department stores and toy shops that had young girls fussing and doting over them.
They had big blue eyes that fluttered like a debutante in her coming-out party and it sometimes, even cried. They came with a set of dresses or wigs with which the kids played around to suit her up for any special occasion. And then came XENO.
XENO, An Inter-Active Pet That Looks Like Nothing You Have Ever Seen
XENO is one of the most inter-active “friend-toys” to come out of those high-technology-minded toy makers. It’s neither a doll nor a robot but rather, an innovative, modern, high-tech “pet-friend”, boys and girls would most likely hug the minute they see him.
Made from non-toxic material that’s elastic, Xeno is soft to the touch and feel, which makes him just about the cutest, nearest thing to having a live pet or friend.
What Xeno Does
Xeno has been specially designed and built to have his body moving in practically all directions.
Like pets, he wiggles and wags, raises his ears like a rabbit, opens and closes his mouth, shakes his head from left to right, moves his paws every which way and a whole lot more you’ll discover as he gets closer to you.
How Xeno Interacts
Xeno has got 8 sensors. You can touch any of these to inter-act with him. These are found in his head, mouth, tummy, his right and left arms, his left paw, tail and snout.
You’ll simply have to press any of these body parts, depending on what Xeno may need or ask for at a particular play time. For instance, when he’s feeling a bit down or under the weather, he’d start crying and wailing “ Oh, oh… bwah wah!”.
You’ll then need to probe and press any of the sensors to know which part of his body is aching. When he’s hungry, he’ll grouch and say “ Uhh, uhh … hungry!”. You then can feed him by putting your finger into his open mouth.
Treat Xeno Like a Pet
Xeno is like an amazing pet. You can play with him, cuddle him, care for him when he’s feeling low, you can tickle his ribs, blow his nose and try to get into what’s making him mad, sad or happy.
You can even bring in some music and if he fancies it and likes it … wow! he’ll dance! Xeno is incredible. You can even play 5 exciting mini-games with him … and he’ll start it off with his cute little voice ..”Wanna play?” So, you think that’s all?
No. If you happen to have 2 Xenos and you place them near each other, they’ll chat in their own funny, private language.
How Does Xeno Look?
He is unbelievably adorable! You have got to see him. Xeno comes in 3 unique, lovable colors, even the older brats in the family is sure to love him. He comes in Ultra Violet, Pacific Blue and Burnt Orange.
So, Do We Take Him In Into Our Homes?
No doubt. Xeno’s going to be a big hit with kids who love pets. But don’t be surprised if mom gets to like him too.
My Friend Cayla
From our earliest years, when we were kids, our folks have always taught us, it was a lot of fun meeting new people and making friends. We should be friendly with the neighbors who just moved in or the kids in Sunday school or our own classmates and cousins when they make a visit or when we drop in on them.
And why not? Having kids our own age to play or chat with, or learn our lessons with or even walk our pet dogs with in the nearby park is always great fun. What could even be more interesting and lots more fun is meeting a new, “special friend”.
Meet My Friend Cayla
My friend Cayla is the very first inter-active doll in the world. She answers questions you might want to ask her about school, hobbies, animals or fruits or just about anything. She would understand what you’d be trying to tell her and chat with you. She can tell you stories and play games with you. You can play with her either off-line or on line.
Cayla is a pretty 18-inch, high tech, interactive doll with long blond hair, who loves wearing trendy clothes. She comes with a hair brush and a dainty mirror. Cayla, cute as she is, would be great to have around as a friend. She’s not only fun. She’s pretty smart too, to be able to answer almost anything you’d ask her.
How Does She Do That?
My friend Cayla has a built-in system that makes use of the Google software which transposes into text whatever question a little girl might ask her. This text then enables Cayla to search the web for the answer which Cayla then simply recites when it is found. Given this, Cayla can even answer questions on math, general information and anything related to weather.
This girl-wonder Cayla is also designed to sync with a tablet or a smart phone which enables her to recognize a little girl’s voice and speech and have simple conversations with her.
When off line, she still does a lot of things like story telling or playing games as sourced from her own data base.
Is It Safe To Have My Friend Cayla Around Kids?
Yes. Because Google’s Safe Search Technology is in place, when Cayla hears a “swear word” or something related to Race or body parts, she is programmed to say something like ..”I don’t know what you’re talking about” or “Let’s talk about something else.” or she may simply not respond.
Moreover, Mom or Dad can log on to the smart phone app that is placed-in to control Cayla and they can block whatever word or phrase they may regard as unsuitable for their kids.
Modern Technology Wins Out
You’ll have to tip your hats off to these creative toy manufacturers who exploit the potentials of ICT to create something that’s not only great fun for kids but introducing an interestingly new platform that allows them to learn things as they grow up.
