Put a Great Spin on the Gift-Giving Season

Article excerpt

Not a holiday season goes by when we don't turn to the masters at SpinMaster for great gifts for the kids:

* Zoomer Marshall ($69.99, ages 3+). One of Paw Patrol's most beloved characters, Marshall now is more interactive than ever and ready to take kids on their own rescue adventures. With more than 150 real Paw Patrol sounds and phrases, over 80 interactive missions and tricks, and a transforming pup pack with launching water cannons, the living room becomes a real life Adventure Bay.

* Zoomer Chimp ($119.99, ages 5+). With lifelike movements and realistic chimp sounds, this Zoomer is the closest kids can get to having their very own Chimp. Combining all of the award-winning aspects of the Zoomer family, it can follow, stand up on its own, and recognize voice commands. It loves to perform tricks like "Stand," "Sit," "Go Bananas," "Do a flip," and more. However, its most-impressive feature is its personality. The more kids play with Zoomer Chimp, the more it evolves.

* Zoomer Hedgiez ($39.99, ages 4+). Through their wiggly noses, sweet sounds, sensors, and LED eyes, these adorable and interactive fantasy hedgehogs truly come to life. Hedgiez blow kisses, whistle, sneeze, and move on their own. Kids can pet them to perform tricks, like headstands, somersaults, and more.

* Meccano Meccasaur ($99.99, ages 10+). Combining engineering and robotics to create a three-foot-long T-rex, Meccano brings an interactive pet with a huge personality to life. Easily programmable via the Meccabrain on its back, kids can control things like Meccasaur's direction, attack, and roar, while understanding its mood based on the color-changing LED eyes.

* Meccano Micronoid ($39.99, ages 8+). Introducing the pocket-sized robot friend that offers big-time fun. Taking the programming of larger-scale Meccanoid to a more accessible level in both price and building, the Micronoids tell jokes, laugh, and move, even interacting with each other. With easy direction controls, L.I.M. programming, and responsiveness to yes/no questions and music, it's never been easier for kids to call a robot their own.

* Air Hogs-Star Wars Remote Control Millennium Falcon XL Drone ($109.99, ages 14+). Experience the most iconic spacecraft in the Star Wars universe. This colossal 27" x 20" drone features a light-up cockpit complete with detailed Han Solo and Chewie figures, LED subspace hyper drive, and realistic lights and sounds fans know from films.
