Retro Toys That Interact With Apps Set to be Christmas 2013 Most Wanted.

Published 28 Nov 2013 by Paul Turner




Toys that have app add-ons are set to become the big successes of the 2013 Christmas Season, with robotic pets topping the list.

Furby Boom, the latest incarnation of the incredibly popular critter is predicted to smash all previous Furby Christmas records; no small achievement given that an astonishing 27million Furby’s were sold in their introductory year. So what’s so special about the youngest Furby; the Furby Boom? Available in six designs: Waves, Polka Dots, Stripes, Zig Zags and Peacock, the furry beings have had a digital overhaul and now interact with iPhone and iPad apps which can translate their strange language, and ‘feed’ them.

The Teksta Puppy is another robotic pet offering. Lacking the soft fur and sandy puppy smell, the Teksta is a glossy white plastic robot dog which barks, cries and whimpers and will play tunes downloaded via an iPad.

At Gadgeo we're all for the renovation of old classics. We will be eagerly awaiting our own mechanical pets for the festivities no doubt!
