Cool toys for the holidays!

BY DAN NESSEL

T

he holidays are here! What would the holidays be without robots, blasters, plush pets
and games? Let's take a look at some of our
favorites.

Nerf + Laser Tag = Fun!

Tired of having those Nerf
darts all over the house? Get
the grandkids the new Nerf
Laser OPS Pro Blasters and say
goodbye to darts! The Nerf
Laser OPS Pro system brings the
fun of laser tag to the world of
Nerf. The Laser OPS Pro blasters
have lights and sounds to
indicate when you have been hit, have an impressive 225 foot range
and can work with or without a smartphone app.
Nerf Laser OPS Pro Blasters | Staring at $29

Pomsies, The Pet You Can Wear
CAP. Bot For A BuddY?

Toy robots, while technically sophisticated, can
often be complex, difficult to program and
intimidating for younger kids. This is not the
case with Boxer Bot from Spin Master. Boxer
is a bot filled with personality, that grandkids
from 6 and up will love. No assembly required,
right out of the box, Boxer plays games, zips
around, makes endless sounds and generally
acts as a fun-loving sidekick for your grandkid.

NOVEMBER DECEMBER 2018

Without fail, every year there is a new interactive
plush pet that the grandkids fall in love with. For
2018, there is an excellent chance that pet is
Pomsies from Skyrocket. These incredibly
cute pets can be worn by the grandkids, so
in addition to being fun, they are a fashion
statement as well. Pet them, shake them,
dance with them and watch their eyes
light up and listen to their happy song.
With 8 different Pomsies in the line, the
hardest part is picking which one to adopt.

When The Lights Go Out,
The Family Fun Begins

Looking to add a fun twist to family game night? Turn
out the lights! Shadows in the Forest by ThinkFun
is the first board game you play in the dark. One
player controls the lantern, the other players are
the Shadowlings. The lantern is trying to freeze the
Shadowlings with light, while the Shadowlings are
trying to all meet under one tree. It's like flashlight
tag...but on a tabletop. It's fun, and you save money
on your electric bill!
Shadows in the Forest by ThinkFun | $24.99
