As prices dramatically drop left, right and centre on Black Friday, it obviously seems a convenient time to get some truly special Christmas presents for your little one. The following tech toys look set to be in especially strong demand among children this year, so keep an eagle eye out for them tomorrow…
The AppleMagazine choice for Best Toy of 2015
Even before the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens next month, everyone already seems to have a favorite droid from the film: cute little BB-8! You can already, in a sense, buy him; Sphero has made a tennis ball sized version of BB-8, who makes authentic sounds and you can control through Bluetooth from the toy’s iOS app.
KiiToys X10 Quadcopter Drone
If your child is aged at least eight, they shouldn’t struggle to operate this toy drone, one of the smallest that you can buy. It measures only 1.5 by 1.5 inches, but comes with flashing LED lights that can allow for quite an enjoyable light show when the drone is airborne.
If playing racing games on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One delights your offspring, you could take their experiences a further step towards realism with Anki OVERDRIVE remote control toy cars. These cars actually use artificial intelligence to largely drive themselves, but it’s also possible to use the Anki OVERDRIVE app on an iOS device to change lanes and speed and even fire virtual weapons.
