  11. Robo Fish

    Robo Fish

    from Zuru

    •  3+

    Pet fish are a lot of fun, but there's one problem: they don't live very long. But with Robo Fish, kids can have all the fun of a pet fish without having to worry about keeping the water temperature in the fish bowl just right, feeding the fish, or mourning the death of Fishy. Robo Fish are electronic fish that swim just like a real fish thanks to their lifelike tail fin motion. These fish have a water-activated swimming mechanism. Just place a Robo Fish in water and it automatically turns on. To turn off Robo Fish, take it out of the water and dry it with a soft, clean cloth.

    Robo Fish are sold individually for about $9.99. There are eight styles. Each comes with a display stand.

    You can also purchase the Robo Fish Fish Bowl, which retails for $19.99 and comes with a shark Robo Fish. The Fish Bowl can hold up to four liters of water. Just fill it with water and let the fish swim.

  12. Tagamoto Enforcer Road Set

    Tagamoto Enforcer Road Set

    from Innovation First

    •  4+

    Tagamoto is an interactive and customizable motorized vehicle line from Innovation First, the company behind Hexbugs. Tagamoto cars zoom around the customizable track, as lights, sounds, and vehicle movements are activated by codes placed on the track pieces. Kids can modify their track layout and the placement of the codes so that the Tagamoto driving experience is different every time. Tagamoto motorized vehicles are powered by patented Hexbug Nano technology. There are 26 unique Tagamoto cars to collect, along with different sets to build your own track into a sprawling city landscape.

    The Enforcer Road Set includes a red car called Blaze, a police car called Enforcer, and more than 65 easy-to-connect pieces, including parking spaces, a toll booth, and a stop sign. Both cars have real working headlights and taillights as well as more than 15 different sound effects, including an engine revving, car horn, and sirens. There are three different modes of play.

    When you first turn on the cars, they are in Roads & Codes mode and will react to codes placed on the road. Codes might make a car turn on its headlights, stop, play a beatbox melody, or go a certain speed limit.

    To turn the cars to Off Road mode, press the orange button on the underside of the cars for four seconds. In this mode, the cars can drive on any smooth surface without stopping to read codes.

    For Free Roll mode, snap down the wheels so that the car rolls freely for non-motorized creative play.
