The holiday season has begun and I’ve already started making my lists of awesome gift ideas for the kids. There are so great new technology toys out this season that I can’t wait to check out from Best Buy. The Holiday Toy Gift Guide just arrived at my door this week so I gave it to my kids to start circling so I know what they want for Christmas. 

First up on some of my favorite tech toys are the Star Wars Sphero droids. We already have BB-8 in our collection but now you can get R2-D2 and BB-9 from The Last Jedi. Sphero is the master of robotic toys and we love playing with BB-8. The kids will love having R2-D2 there to play as well. 

Delight the Star Wars fan in your family with this Sphero R2-D2 app-enabled droid. Made to resemble the iconic Star Wars character, this fun robot features authentic LEDs for realism and a motion sensor that detects your presence and reacts. An integrated speaker on this Sphero R2-D2 app-enabled droid lets him ‘boop’ and ‘beep’ in his own special language.

Next up on the list is all things OSMO! We LOVE the OSMO sets, and we continue to buy the new ones that come out because the girls love them. This year, OSMO came out with a few more great sets like the Pizza Co., Coding Game, Hot Wheels MindRacers, and the Creative Kit. Here are our review and video of the OSMO kit.


The Seedling Parker Augmented Reality Bear is one that we are putting on our wishlist for sure this holiday. This bear is adorable and has lots of great features. Seedling is one of those companies that makes fantastic kids products. Our favorites are the Disney Craft Sets, but this new bear is a step into the future of toys! 

Let your tot enjoy learning while caring for this Seedling Parker augmented reality bear. It activates AR effects on a mobile device via the Parker app for interactive doctor play, and it can also be played with on its own. This cuddly Seedling Parker augmented reality bear comes with toy doctor tools for exciting pretend play.Last on my list of awesome tech toys is the Anki Cosmo. Make friends with Anki’s Cozmo the robot, a fun-loving sidekick who evolves as he gets to know you. He knows your name and face, and he can express emotions, play games and explore his environment thanks to artificial intelligence. All you need to get started with Anki’s Cozmo the robot is an Android or iOS device and the Cozmo app. 

Best Buy has all the tech gifts you need for this holiday season! Keep your eyes peeled for the Holiday Toy Guide hitting your mailbox soon!
