Christmas will be upon us again before we know it, and for boys and girls of all ages, that means that the coolest toys of 2015 will be on display for all to goggle at. Who knows how the Christmas tradition of exchanging small gifts with one another has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry that brings out the need to purchase numerous toys once a year, but here we are. It is actually not all commercialized, however, as some of the favourite toys are now educational toys, and that is certainly good for all involved! No matter who you are, young or old, it is time to count down to Christmas and consider the must-have kids toys that are almost certain to make the lists of boys and girls across Canada, even if they are not quite on your own list yet. Consider the list of 7 toys below to get your own list started and get ready to go shopping!
Interactive Tracy Island
Who wouldn’t want to be a rescue commander when they grow up? Not only is it important to teach young people about the great outdoors, and the potential dangers that can manifest themselves if one is not careful, but it can also be great fun as well. The Interactive Tracy Island allows children to recreate their very own international rescue, with the illustrious John Tracy at the helm. In fact, once the communicator is turned on, Tracy himself begins a countdown at the end of which a cool Thunderbird vehicle will be launched as the latest rescue scenario begins to unfold right in front of the children’s eyes. This particular Tracy Island toy uses all of the latest technology to enable the various vehicles to interact with one another while on the island. It also encourages children to become creative and develop their very own Thunderbird story as well. This toy is rated as being suitable for any child 3 years old and up. For those of you looking to buy one of these must-have kids toys, it is important to note that the main game does not come with any Thunderbird vehicles, so you will want to purchase a few of those separately.
The Skating and Singing Elsa
The classic toys that Disney has developed through the years are certainly making a comeback. Another toy that is sure to make the list for the coolest toys in 2015 is the Skate and Sing Elsa. This figure will enable your children, and yourself as well, to relive their favourite moments from the movie over and over as they play with Elsa, who is easily controlled with a remote control. The controller is easy to use and enables children to glide and spin Elsa to simulate her actually skating. While she does that, she will be singing her hit song. It is great fun for any child older than 3.
