Holiday Hit List 2011
The goblins are now gone, and the elves are putting their finishing touches on a new batch of toys. Here at The Noise on Toys, our own little testing elves have had a tour of the workshop. Here’s what they say are the top and most noteworthy toys from over 500 new toys they play-tested this year.
Our kid-testers never tired of stuffing their favourite blue monster with cookies, and thought it hilarious when he burped and said excuse me. A very popular toy.
Easy to get on and off; fun to play in; and a lot snazzier than a dish towel. Our testers loved how it flaps when they run; parents loved that it hides dirt and withstands so many adventures.
A fast, and easy way for parents to set up treasure hunts. So much fun, our kid-testers didn’t even care if there was a “treat” at the end; it’s the hunt they loved – over and over again, all the while practicing simple word recognition.
A great set-up! Kids love that the extra height makes the cars go really fast; parents love that the track is off the floor and out of the way.
Everything you need to make eight pretty pastel-coloured snowflake ornaments. Our testers especially loved the facetted plastic opti-art dome that made their artwork pop with holiday magic.
