Toys for 2012 Part One

Here's a few to get you started: Click on the link to find out the appropriate age and find more details, as well as any additional things you can order with it. I just gave Amazon links asa a starter and you can Google from there or look in your local stores. 

Matchbox Big Boots Dino Adventure Squad for $29.74 on sale at Amazon. A huge hit with kids, This truck belongs to the Big Boots team who's mission is to capture the vicious T-Rex (included). Catch the dinosaur by launching, catapulting and grabbing the Big Boots figures. Since Big Boots figures always land on their feet, they are ready to spring into action as soon as they hit the ground. Trap the T-Rex and “lock” him in the dino cage. The Ambusher comes with one T-Rex figure and four Big Boots figures and can accommodate dozens more! Watch a little video on this one HERE.

Got a Bieber Fan? Animated stuffed Beaver sings Baby by Justin Beiber... on sale for $28 on Amazon.  Parents reviews say it sings very clearly and mouth even moves in synchronization! Only a few left in stock as of today so hurry or Google other toy stores if you want this!

Live where it's warm? How about this Soak n' Splash Water Limbo Sprinkler ONLY $8.95 on Amazon. Compatible with any standard hose,great for ages 4 and up. Just press the button to hear the Limbo song as the kids pass under the stream of water. After the kids pass underneath they adjust the height of the stream to make the game more challenging. If anyone touches the water, they are eliminated until the game starts again. Fun and great exercise for the kids.
Got an aspiring lil' golfer? On sale on Amazon for $17.99.  Each set comes with a bright colored golf club and a Sky Ball Golf Ball. When the golf club hits the Sky Ball - watch out….this ball will go flying... apparently 300 feet!


Or how about this  Grow-to-Pro golf set by Fischer Price? On sale for $26.52 on Amazon. Perfect for any Tiger Woods in training. Set includes a snap-together golf bag, driver, putter, tee, and five golf balls--all in sturdy, easy-to-clean plastic. When your little putter (and the future Masters champion) pushes down the lever on the bottom of the bag with the end of the club, one golf ball rolls into position on the tee. Next stop--peewee tour! Adult assembly required; no special tools or batteries needed.


I'm not big on guns but since I aim to please (pun intended) Nerf seems to be the softest way to deliver on this kind of toy. How about this: the Vortex Praxis on sale for $15.19 on Amazon.  It's all about distance... Pump-action power and a removable 10-disc clip make it a long-range blaster. You can modify your blaster with the removable shoulder stock and add accessories with the Tactical Rail System (Tactical Rail accessories sold separately) for maximum mobility or enhanced fire control. Comes with a removable stock, 10-disc magazine, 10 discs, and instructions.

Also by Nerf, the N-strike Elite Hail-fire Blaster on sale on Amazon for $25.  It's the highest capacity NERF blaster ever. The N-STRIKE ELITE HAIL-FIRE tops out at an astounding 144-dart capacity (with the purchase of additional clips and darts). It holds up to 8 clips, and delivers a semi-auto barrage of darts as fast as you can pull the trigger. When you've got the HAIL-FIRE, you've got the ultimate in high-capacity blasting!
