If you live under the same roof with an adolescent boy, chances are you've heard the phrase Bakugan. It is the latest toy craze for boys and is felt around the globe. Bakugan started as a Japanese anime show and was eventually developed into a game by Sega Toys and Spin Master. It's a thought-provoking game combining skill and strategy. While battling opponents for their metal gate cards (the keys which unlock their inner warrior) themes of good and evil are explored by kids of all ages. Definitely one of the best gifts for boys this Christmas.
Another great toy this season is called Ucreate Music by Mattel. It's a very easy to use digital music-making system. This "toy" is very cool, for kids and adults. With it, you can create your own songs and mix them like a professional, then share them with your friends. It comes with access to a huge online library where you can download other music packs (tracks, loops, effects) for free. Not many companies are giving away free stuff these days. Thank you Mattel.
Hasbro's Electronic Hyperslide is another top toy for boys this Christmas. It involves the sweet simplicity of the table-top-paper-triangle football game played by boys for years, but mixed with a new tech twist. Like paper triangle football meets Bopit! And it's one of those games you can either play by yourself, or with others. It's harder than it looks so be prepared to have your dignity handed to you by your eight year-old.
These are some of the best gifts for boys this Christmas. If he's not nicer after receiving one of these, he never will be.
Did we mention these are the hottest toys of the season? Which means if you want your kids to have them, you'd better get them NOW.
