Top Toys For Boys In 2013
So many toys, how do you even begin to know what to buy?
The Toy Tattler is here to help with a gentle, but comprehensive guide to the hottest toys for boys available in 2013.
Despicable Me Fart Gun
Finally the long wait for Despcicable Me is over, and this time there is a great toy line to accompay the movie. The talking and singing minions will be a massive hit, I’m sure, but I couldn’t resist posting this toy as my favourite.
Monsters University Imaginext Scare Factory
I love Imaginext toys as they are easy for little fingers to manipulate and are virtually indestructible (we have tested several sets vigorously).
Fisher Price have hooked up with Pixar to produce a line of Imaginext playsets inspired by this Summer’s Monsters University film.
LEGO Lone Ranger
LEGO have launced a line of new construction sets recreating scenes from the new Lone Ranger film.
Superman Man of Steel Action Figures
There’s a line of action figures for older children, and Playskool have added some new Superman sets to their Heroes line.
Transformers Beast Hunters
This new line of dragon-esque Transformers action figures are going to be huge – I’ve seen the predicted advertising spend in toy industry press, and it’s eye-watering.
Winner of TOTY eConnected Toy category, this 2nd installment of the Skylanders franchise is dominating video games sales. If you are thinking of buying one now, let me give you a gentle warning that the all new Skylanders Swap Force will be released in October.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser
This toy won the TOTY Boys category, in Febraury this year, and was a big hit over Christmas. TMNT fans can expect a fresh batch of toys around September time.
Toy Awards and Top Toy Lists have been all about the LeapPad 2, often overlooking the equally functional, but cheaper, and easier to hold Leapster GS.
When friends and family asked me what to buy my sons, my response is always the same ‘anything LEGO’. But you are probably hoping for a little more direction than that.
The Ninjago martial-arts inspired line is still going strong, but my new favourite is the Legends of Chima line – based around warring animal tribes.
The huge, and rather unwieldy Elite Hail-Fire was a must-have toy last Christmas. Since then Nerf have added new guns to the Elite line, including the substantial Elite Stryfe. For those who would like a break from retrieving little orange darts, should check out the Bad Bow.
