Fidget spinners may be the most useless item you can possibly imagine, but that’s part of their charm and there’s no denying that kids are going crazy for them. This one comes with a cool twist, with its bright LED feature meaning it looks cool in the daylight, and awesome at nighttime!
There’s no denying that nerf guns are, have been and always will be one of the coolest toys ever made. Even today, where everything is electronic and on-screen, there’s a huge gap in every kid’s life for some nerf. The Elite AccuStrike takes things to another level in terms of accuracy, wow factor and badassery. The only thing is you might need one or two to defend yourself from their attacks!
Drones have become a monstrously big market over the past few years, and you don’t wanna burn thousands of dollars on something your kid is likely to smash into a wall or group of trees! The Force1 is pretty cheap, but it still features an HD camera, altitude hold function and one-touch TOAL (take-off and landing), meaning it’s easy to fly straight out of the box.
The Shadows Over Innistrad box is basically an all-in-one solution for organising and storing all of your MTG cards and accessories. You wouldn’t send a soldier into war without any armour, so neither should you have your kid playing Magic without a suitable carrying solution for all their kit!
Drones aren’t just for filming outside as you fly down ski slopes – they have other, more indoors-friendly applications too. The flying ball helicopter toys from DG Kids hovers autonomously above your child’s hand, and will follow them around wherever they go! In the dark, you get a disco ball-type look with its multi-colored LED lighting!
Clocking up an impressive 25mph and the ability to navigate any off-road surface, the HOSIM all-terrain car is a superb example of radio-controlled engineering. It also looks badass. With a range of up to 260 feet, you can drive this car through forests, over wet beaches and just about anywhere you can think of – a great way to get your kid some fresh air in the outdoors!
A board game which gets your kids thinking, interested in medicine and, possibly, becoming the heroes which save the human race from extinction: Pandemic Board Game!
Pandemic is a game that’s all about strategic planning and teamwork. A bunch of deadly diseases have broken out and are spreading across the globe, and it’s up to you and your team to stop the pandemic and save the world from a repeat of the Black Plague! It’s fun, entertaining and there’s a healthy dollop of blame to share if things go wrong!
Codenamesis a game that will challenge your brain, your lateral thinking and, most probably, your relationships.
Don’t worry though – it’s great! You basically have to link a series of totally random words (like hat, pizza and dressage) using only a single word as the link. The more words you can link with a single term, the better your chances of winning! It’s a uniquely addictive game, perfect for small groups!
Your kids might not remember the epic TV game show Catchphrase, but with the Electronic Catch Phrase Game they’ll learn to play the 21st century version!
You play in teams: one of you holds the red catchphrase gadget and a word comes up on the screen – you have to describe it to your teammates as quickly as possible without rhyming or using any part of the word in your descriptions! Once time runs out, the person holding the box loses a point, making this a game of pace and tactics. It’s hialrious, care-free fun and is a perfect toy for kids around 13-15 years old.
