Holiday Gift Guide: Favorite Toys for Children – Thundercats, Transformers, Star Wars, Ben 10 & More
The Holiday season is here. To help you with some last minute shopping, we’ve identified seven great toy lines that will delight your children, including: Thundercats, Transformers, Stars Wars: The Clone Wars, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, and My Little Pony.
Up first we have Thundercats, adapted from the new cartoon series from Warner Bros Animation. As one of the best new animated series of 2011, this series is a fan favorite. Toys come in both 4″ and 6″ varieties.
Kre-O Transfromers (including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream and Megatron)
Hasbro enters the building blocks arena with Kre-O Transformers. If your child liked Transformers: Dark of the Moon, then he or she will enjoy this new set of building blocks. Your children can build their favorite Autobot or Decepticon in either robot or vehicle form.
Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
Ben 10: Ultimate Alien continues to be a favorite at BuzzFocus. This year, Bandai added a few new role-play toys to its roster of Ben 10 items. The Ben 10 Tech Blaster will make you feel like you’re Kevin Levin going through Plumber Training. New Hyperalien toys come with even more points of articulation. Bandai did a great job with adding detail to these alien transformations and they’re great to check out.
My Little Pony
My Little Pony will be a hit with girls this season. The new animated series has garnered a massive audience and the toys do a great job of bringing the Pony excitement home. These toys have hair and grooming kits which will give your girls loads of playful enjoyment.
Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars
When it comes to delivering awesome building goodness, nothing compares to the tried-and-true Lego sets. Their Clone Wars line is a meditative experience as you build some of Star Wars’ greatest spacecrafts from scratch.
If Star Wars isn’t your thing, Lego also has several awesomeHarry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean sets.
Typically, we focus on licensed toys. However, Nerf has been a favorite since we were kids so we’re always checking out the latest in “Nerf or nothing.” This year, Nerf’s new disc blasters have drawn the attention of children ages eight and up. Each blaster shoots Nerf’s soft foam discs so that no one gets hurt, while children are out having fun. Just keep in mind that these toys require several batteries which are NOT included.
