Top tech toys this holiday season include minirobots, augmented reality
Wanna give a high tech toy, but worried it won't be a holiday hit?
Here's the coolest, kid-tested tech we could find.
The $35 fusion kits from fan favorite Lego offer a Minecraft-like touch.
Use your iPad to scan your Lego creations and add them to your virtual world, then complete missions to keep your Lego citizens happy.
With Ozobot, kids pick up coding skills as they play.
The $50 petite bot shoots along pre-made tracks, or you can draw your own on paper, or digitally.
Different colored sequences serve as commands.
Use green, red, green, red to make Ozobots spin.
The $55 moss band uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to recognize your movement.
Choose an activity on the Moth app and pretend you're a swashbuckler or a tennis pro.
With a touch screen and built-in camera, VTech's $50 Kiddie Zoom is a smart watch for kids.
They can play games, shoot videos.
And snap pictures with silly effects.
Our only gripe, the camera position makes it tough to take selfies.
The $50 PowerUp 3.0 kit adds extra zip to paper planes with a rudder and propeller.
A smart module clips onto the nose and let's you control the throttle from your smartphone.
You'll need a little flight practice, but that's part of the appeal.
And fortunately, it's pretty rugged.
The $40.00 Cyber Boxing Robots from RadioShack are a modern day reboot of Rock em Sock em Robots.
A fun feature of this remote control version, punch the chest and the head pops off.
That never gets old.
