Race cars? Check. High intelligence tech? Check. Virtual shifting race track? Check. Basically, all of the components for an awesome, super-fun time. This is classic Hot Wheels with a digital spin—something for modern kiddos. Drivers use controls to race their corresponding cars around a real, lengthy track with virtual obstacles.
Tri-Strike is a 3-in-1 NERF blaster with 3 different sizes of foam darts: standard (10), MEGA (4), and SUPER MEGA (1). Each foam dart, depending on size, will come from one of three barrels, and the length varies. But most darts get a minimum of 60-feet in distance and accuracy.
Advent calendars are great ways to build the anticipation of Christmas, but Star Wars advent calendars are even better. This holiday-themed Star Wars set is out of this world. See what I did there? Heh. There are 24 days in December until Christmas. Ergo, 24 holiday-themed gifts behind 24 doors.
Cozmo is your kiddo’s new best friend, who just so happens to be a robo-boy. He moves around on smooth-rollin’ wheels, but his real talent is in emotions and reactions to situations and feelings. He learns about his new friend, then develops a unique personality to complement his companion’s moods.
One for the R/C fans out there – Air Hogs Thunder Trax arrives at #5 of the best toys for ten year old boys for 2017 and into 2017.
Thunder Trax is an all-terrain go-mobile. And I do mean any and all terrain. This gadget is remote-controlled and shifts positions from a tank to a boat. The tank has tough-traction wheels that become flippers when the boat shift happens.
Drones and video games together? You betcha! In real-time, kiddos will navigate their drone on missions through the skies. There are lots-a fun games and challenges. And the rewards are new tricks for the drone to perform mid-air. I would have to say that this is a little pilot-to-be’s dream.
One of my personal favorite releases for 2017 – Razor Hovertrax 2.0 is definitely ranked as one of the best toys for boys age 10.
Dubbed 2.0, this Hoverboard is a Razor revamp that is much safer and high-tech than the original. It boasts self-balanced technologies, making it easier to steer with subtle leans, without falling off. It does take some practice though. So don a helmet and pads before taking on this Hoverboard adventure
Probably the coolest toy I have ever seen. In my entire life. And that is saying something because I write toy reviews for you guys regularly. From the awesomeness of Star Trek, this toy is a buildable replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise (collector edition). Includes Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock!
The BB-8 is one you might recognize from Star Wars, but scaled-down a bit. This robot boasts high intelligence and response to verbal commands. Compatible with a smartphone or tablet, the BB-8 becomes totally aware of both surroundings and people, which is pretty cool for a gadget. Includes battle-worn exterior.
The E90 is a step up for Razor in terms of motorized scooters. With 50-percent more strength and power, this scooter comes with more safety features to ensure a comfortable, problem-free ride. The deck is low for a kick-off start, but the scooter can reach top speeds of 10 miles-per-hour.
