If you’re considering an interactive toy for your child this Christmas, here is our guide to the most popular toys in this category for 2014.
Leapfrog Read & Write LeapPad
The Leapfrog LeapPad is currently one of the most popular reading games available on the market. Designed for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years, your little ones will be able to play, discover and learn through over 40 educational themes. The Leapfrog LeapPad is unique in the way that children can learn through hearing sounds, information and music as well as bring their favourite characters to life!
The LeapPad is very easy to use: children simply use the pen-style device to point at words and choose from characters such as Nemo or Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc.
Robotic dog: Zoomer Puppy
Robotic dogs will be at the top of Christmas lists this year! The name gives it away: Zoomer Puppy is a Dalmatian that runs around your house like a real dog! The Zoomer brand also retails a robotic dinosaur.
