This holiday season, shop like it’s 1999 — FURBY is back. The lovable and/or creepy robotic creature was a smash from 1998-2000, and this year, it’s bound to be on wish lists yet again. These funky-colored creatures are back again for children to chat with, play with, and take care of. One tip for the kids: how they treat their furry friend will determine how it treats them back.
This hand-held gaming console comes with a touch screen, front and back cameras, 5 apps and several levels of reading. The LeapPad 2 can email parents tips based on the child’s progress and lets them share achievements online.
Power Wheels Dune Racer
At Toys R Us, shoppers have been using layaway plans as a way to store “big gift” items like this one, according to Katie Reczek, a Toys R Us spokesperson. Toddlers can drive this in two speeds – 2.5 and 5 miles per hour, and also reverse. The two-seater also has power lock brakes. It features a steel frame, chrome accents, and pretend seatbelts. Get yours while they last — retailers say the racer is zipping out of stores this season.
