The 3 Hottest Toys of All Time

Updated on October 14, 2015

Thinking of gifts to give to children for any special occasion, or even on ordinary days is taxing. We could give them anything that we think is attractive for us – be it clothes, cookies, expensive chocolates, or toys. But for me, the greatest gift that is much appreciated and excite the kids are the toys. If you are the godparent, be sure to ask the parents what your godchild’s favorite toys. Or, if you want something different and when in doubt what’s best, why not give the kid an educational toy—something that you think interests him/her, or stimulates and challenges his mind?

This hub lists down some of the best/hottest toys of all time for kids of all ages. No more discrimination! Boys' toys can be played now by girls and vice versa. Remember the tweet of a mom that got a lot of reactions in Twitter and re-tweets? Her daughter wanted the toy so much that is displayed in the boy’s section of the toy store and this made both the mother and daughter squirmed upon reading the label above the shelf that read, “For Boys Only.”

LeapFrog Tag Junior Book Explorer

As soon as your kid starts having interest on story books and flipping through pages randomly ,LeapFrog Tag Junior Book Explorer is the best toy to give.

The animal-shaped Book Pal, which is the reader, is designed for easy grip of your toddler’s tiny hand and for as long as he has already developed fine motor skills.

By simply touching the words on the book with the base of the book pal, where the optical reader is located, the toddler can hear the words read aloud by it. He can also hear different responses like open-ended questions, interesting sound effects and amusing sentences if the reader touches the same spot on the book. The variety and randomness of the responses will pique his interests more and will explore the book over and over again.

In the box is one LeapFrog Junior Book Pal and its USB cable, one LeapFrog Tag Junior Book, and Instruction book.

Book Pal can store up to five books. By using the LeapFrog Connect application, connect it to the computer using USB cable to download audio.

Appropriate for kids ages 2 to 4

One of the reviews says that this toy is awesome since it performs well on any surfaces-- hard floor, concrete ground, or even on carpeted floor with medium thickness.

Mindflex Game

Mattel's new Mindflex toy is designed to let your brainwaves control the toy. To play this game put on the headset that's replete with brainwave sensors. You can navigate the ball through the game's series of obstacles with only your brain power. The more you concentrate while wearing the headset the higher the ball will go.

    What you said is true. Most kids nowadays are hooked up to computer games (virtual world) and even some of their studies have been compromised and it cannot replace the building of camaraderie between playmates in the real sense of playing games.

    Thanks for dropping by, MikeNV.

    It's so hard to keep up, each generation has their own unique desires. We didn't really have TV in our house growing up so we did play with a lot of the old classic games and spent a lot of time "playing outside". Today kids watch so much TV they are bombarded with everything electric. Nice to see this wasn't just a list of video games, but instead real toys.

    Thanks for the suggestions. All are good choices. I think I like Elmo's tickle hands to play with my kids. How much budget do I have? Hmmm.

    Good hub. My grandson wants the Mindflex for Christmas. I don't think I'd have enough brain power to lift the ball!
