Top Holiday Toys for the High-Tech Kids

The holidays are just around the corner, and everyone is already busy with their Christmas shopping shenanigans. I love to shop, but since I am due to pop anytime soon, I am already too big, and my tummy has become too heavy, it would be impossible for me join in the chaotic holiday shopping.

Lucky for me, I was able to get ahold of Best Buy’s Holiday Toy catalog! With it, I can easily look for toys that I can give to the kids of my friends as well as to my goddaughters and godsons back home! Before I think catalog shopping can get boring but as I was browsing their catalog, I can’t help but be impressed with the wide selection of toys that they offer.

Best Buy Holiday ToysPIN IT!

Best Buy has every toy imaginable– from classic toys (like dolls and cars) to educational toys (like puzzles and board games) and even, tech toys (you should see their robot collection!). Among all the toys I’ve seen, here are some that I plan on buying for the holidays:

Anki CozmoPIN IT! 1. Anki Cozmo This small robot can be your child’s first best friend! Perfect for both girls and boys aged 3 and above, Anki is like a real-life friend as he can play games, express his emotions and explore his surroundings—all thanks to artificial intelligence. Any child will surely like to have a friend like him!

Hasbro DropmixPIN IT! 2. Hasbro Dropmix Do you love music? Do you want your child to cultivate a passion for it too? That is what Hasbro Dropmix is for! The Hasbro Dropmix Music Gaming System contains a DropMix Board and 60 Dropmix cards that can let the child mix up to 5 songs! It can also be used in clash mode or party mode. Either way, this board will surely be the life of the party!

Parker the Augmented Reality BearPIN IT! 3. Parker the Augmented Reality Bear This cute teddy bear makes learning more fun for kids. The bear along with the toy doctor tools are designed for a pretend doctor to play. You can also activate its AR effects for a more interactive learning experience!

Favorite Pick: Hatchimals Surprise Egg

I chose this as my favorite pick because I am a little biased—I know that my little one will love it when he grows up a bit! After all, who could resist a stuffed toy, right?

Inside the box, you will find a colorful egg. When its rainbow eyes appear, the egg will hatch anytime soon. Once it is hatched, the stuffed toy inside will be your child’s pet—it can play with him, talk to him and even, learn new tricks!

When it comes to holiday gifting, nothing can beat the assortment of toys that you can get at Thanks to their catalog, I don’t have to worry about Christmas shopping anymore!
