With all the toys out there little ones seem easy to buy for for Christmas but from experience that isn’t always the case. When I look for a toy for little ones I seek out interactive educational toys to get them excited about play time.
This year #HolidayGifts2014 is sharing the newest interactive toys for toddlers and kids under 10.
InnoTab® MAX is the fastest 7″ kids’ tablet that gives your child the best of both learning worlds with a unique combination of our educator-supported learning library and carefully selected educational Android apps for years of learning fun! VTech’s 4th generation kids’ learning tablet has a variety of great new features including a multi-touch screen with a high-resolution display, kid-safe Wi-Fi and AndroidTM operating system. Its adaptable design with tough, kid-friendly cover can be easily removed for a more grown-up feel. Plus, the InnoTab® MAX has a huge library of expert-supported curricula with more than 500 age-appropriate apps including hundreds of hand-picked Android learning apps that are perfect for kids of all ages. It comes with 18 apps including My Magic Beanstalk, Movie Maker, Art Studio, Wonder Cam Max and two free apps of your choice that can be downloaded from VTech’s Learning LodgeTM. Plus, when you register the InnoTab® MAX you’ll also be able to choose between two Toca Boca apps, Toca Lab or Toca Pet Doctor! InnoTab® MAX is also compatible with most titles in the InnoTab Cartridge Library. Using a Wi-Fi connection, the web browser lets kids explore online games, videos and websites that have been preselected by VTech or parent approved. Plus, there’s the VTech Kid ConnectTM app. In addition to being able to exchange text and voice messages, photos, drawings and fun stickers with smart phones, VTech Kid Connect has been enhanced with new features such as group chat and family bulletin*. Family Bulletin* allows family members to post messages, photos, greeting cards and more.

Be the first to spill the meatballs and you lose. The updated Fisher-PriceTM classic comes with two game levels to enhance game play. Each level grows with your child challenging them as they get older and encourage thinking, problem solving, sharing and cooperation. The game includes a wobbling dish and base, 16 strands of s’getti, three meatballs and a parent guide with extended play and learning ideas.
