Last night at Sweet Suite was a fun night of treats and a sneak peek of many of the toys that will be arriving on shelves this fall! There were so many great toy brands, it’s hard to know where to start! It’s always fun getting to check out the new toys that will be hitting the shelves this fall and for the holiday season. We arrived at 4:30, and the first stop was the Kidz Bop table, where the group was singing and signing autographs.
After making our way into the main room, it was pure toy craziness. I thought I would share some of my favorite finds and brands. I love that Leap Frog is introducing a new activity tracker watch for kids and an interactive gaming system (think Wii Fit for younger kids). There will be a ton of games featuring popular characters for the age group including Sofia the First and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I love that this system not only stresses activity, but learning as well. It will be available for pre-order in September.
Another super cool product was the Boogie Board LCD writing tablet that offer hours of drawing and redrawing–sort of like your modern-day Etch a Sketch. These would be awesome for note taking in school or a budding artist. There is also a model with Bluetooth capabilities, so that you can download notes and drawing onto your computer.
We love the Smartmax building toys in our house, and I was excited to see a new set coming out that will work with the older version. Smartmax also had a TON of super cool travel games and puzzles that would be perfect for travel!
For those of you with Hex Bugs fans in your house, you will be very excited to see new Hex Bugs coming out this fall. You will be able to build your own large bugs that can be controlled and programmed via remote control. These Hex Bugs were a really remarkable interactive toy that lets your child be creative while learning some rudimentary programming!
Sweet Suite 2014 was a blast, and I will be sharing more of these toys in the fall as we approach the holiday season! There were so many great new additions to share–I wish I could write about all of them, but this post would turn into a novel! 🙂
