Where can you get the Top 20 toys Chosen by Kids for Christmas? At Walmart of course! They are the only retailer who went out and asked the folks who know best–kids themselves! Back in October hundreds of kids ages 18mo-12 years old got the opportunity to try out the newest toys and give their opinion on what were the hottest and most fun toys. Walmart used that information to choose the Top 20 Chosen by Kids toys for the 2014 Holiday!
As a Walmart Mom I have the fun opportunity to try out 5 of the top toys myself and share the experience with you. So far I’ve played with a creative toy–the Sew Cool Threadless Sewing machine, a remote controlled toy–the Disney Princess Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin and a ride on/active toy–the Razor A Kick Scooter. This time I got to check out a fun, interactive toy–the Zoomer Interactive Dino Boomer.
Interactive toys are hot–and this super cool dino is super hot! I have to admit, this is one of the toys I was most excited about playing with. This dino is more than a remote control toy–it actually reacts to the user! If you tease him and pull his tail he gets angry–his eyes glow red, he chomps and spins around. You can “teach” him tricks, make him dance and tell his various moods by the color of his eyes (Green is happy and red is angry. His eyes turn blue when he senses your hand and purple when he is learning). He roars and even burps and farts (oh joy). I enjoyed using the little remote pod and running him around the living room.
- Incredible Zoomer Dino battery operated toy that only you can tame
- Real dinosaur movements, sounds and incredible dino-sense abilities
- Boomer can detect when you’re nearby and interacting with him
- Zoomer Dino Toy can get angry, spin around, chomp and roar
- Using True Balance Technology, Boomer perfectly balances on 2 wheels as he roams freely, exploring your home
- Use hands or included controller to tame his Dino nature and build your friendship
- He might even let out dino-sized burps and farts
- Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included with this kids toy)
This fun toy is great for a slightly older child–I could see a really young one getting a bit frustrated at first. Boys and girls alike enjoy having this “pet” who never has to be fed and never has an accident on your rug!
Here are some other great interactive toys available at your local Walmart this year:
