Thanks to Walmart for partnering with me for today’s post on hot toys for 2014. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
I have been having such a blast covering the hottest toys of 2014. And my kids have REALLY been having a blast! If you’ve missed the previous posts, here are the reviews for the Sew Cool Sewing Machine, Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin and the Razor Scooter.
This week we are getting interactive! Let me introduce you to Zoomer’s Interactive Dino, one of the most beloved toys from the perspective of the kids who tested them out, and certainly one of the very hottest toys of the season.
This dino is actually a robot, or more specifically, a toy (a point I have had to make to Darah numerous times to keep her from climbing on top of the couch in fear every time the dino “gets mad”).
I think she was so scared at first because honestly, the dino’s moves are quite sophisticated. It’s not like any other “toy” I’ve ever seen. You really need to see it to understand. Check out this 1 minute video!
Darah seems to be the most interested in keeping this little dino happy. So she pets him a lot and plays sweetly with him. I think she has a very mild-mannered dino on her hands!
But when little sister gets a hold of the controls, she frequently pushes the “angry” button because she loves to see him spin out of control!
The remote control requires AAA batteries, so don’t forget those! And you do need to charge the dino through a USB cord. We just hook him up through the laptop, since that’s always out, anyway.
I think this toy will be a big hit with children who love to be a little bit wild, as well as with children who like the idea of training something. He’s $79.98 at Walmart, and that’s the best price I’ve seen anywhere for him! But guess what? If you download the FREE Walmart Savings Catcher App, you don’t have to worry about whether or not Walmart has the best deal in town: they will check for you! If they find an advertised better price in your area, they will refund you the difference in the form of a Walmart eGift card.
Take a moment to check out all the interactive toys at Walmart to see if there’s anything you need to round out your Christmas shopping list. In fact, you should check out the entire Chosen by Kids List!
