The UK has started to look for the best Christmas toys in 2014 that take advantage of Android and iOS devices. While stores like Toys R Us and Smyths are offering up must-have toys for Christmas in the UK, it’s the mobile integrated toys some households want Santa to bring their children.
Our personal list of the best tech-focused Christmas toys includes those that primarily need an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Android device. You might be amazed at how many teenagers and much younger children, even babies, have these devices right now.
Furby Boom Crystal with apps – this is certainly one of the hottest toys for younger children in the UK and maybe USA as well. We’ve already looked at how UK prices compare along with a detailed look at the Furby Boom Crystal app. You can see a number of videos that offer a visual review within this article, or take a look at the Smyths, Argos, and Tesco prices.
Best tech toys for Christmas 2014 – this is just a quick highlight of the best toys new for 2014, or very popular for this year, which focus on toys working well with our tech-gadgets.
The six other products we want to feature that fit the bill include VTech’s Kiddizoom Smart Watch, Barbie’s Colour Changing Handbag, Scalextric ARC One, N-Strike Elite Nerf Cam ECS-12 Blaster, LEGO Fusion, and Sphero Ollie.
You can find the Scalextric GT Cars with Racing Control App at Argos for £99. You can see a video below for the US slot car race control system version titled, “Scalextric ARC ONE”. This is very similar and gives you a better understanding of how it works with phones.
The Barbie Glamtastic Colour Change Bag is currently selling at Argos UK for a third off, so around £20. You can see a closer look within the second video below, which gets hands-on with this Glam Bag at Hamleys.
VTech’s Kiddizoom Smart Watch can be seen in the photo below and is selling for around £30 in the UK. There’s also a review from a kids perspective in the third video below.
Feel free to get a closer look at LEGO Fusion on the official website, or N-Strike Elite Nerf Cam ECS-12 Blaster (£75 to £90) and Sphero Ollie (£80) in the videos below as well.
Are you planning on purchasing any of these tech toys with app integration and if not, have you seen anything better that works with apps?
