We’re a house full of tech fans. Toys for all ages – especially for the Star Wars fan (ME!) in our house – technology is at the top of everyone’s wish list this holiday season. To be honest, though I’ve been compensated for this post, Best Buy is our favorite place to shop for tech, especially during the holidays.
Best Buy has an awesome assortment of toys for all ages – yes, this means even the older kids (parents) on your list. Usually, I only shop online but they also have hot toy demos at select stores throughout the holiday season and beyond so we get a chance to see and play with the hottest toys before taking them home.
Remember being a kid and getting the big toy catalog in the mail? I would spend hours circling all the things I wanted to add to my list. The Best Buy catalog is just like that for my family! Except with more tech and more fun toys.
These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things At Best Buy
I’m probably most guilty of being a tech hoarder. I love to have the latest and most updated phone and my precious DSLR, but even beyond that, I get to spoil myself with the fun stuff this time of year and just blame it on getting swept up in the holiday spirit!
As a Star Wars fan, the Sphero R2-D2 App Enabled Droid is at the top of my list. It would pair nicely with my Sphero BB-8 and my Darkside Ollie. See? I told you I love my tech!
Any Star Wars fan will fall in love with the Sphero R2-D2. 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. With an integrated speaker on this Sphero R2-D2, you can hear him drop his famous ‘boop’ and ‘beep’ just like the real thing.
I’m also super excited about the Recoil Starter Set and having a hard time deciding whether this will be for the kids or for my husband and I.
Recoil lets you turn any area into a laser tag battlefield. The starter set includes two pistols and a Wi-Fi router that lets up to 16 players participate at a time. It uses a dedicated smartphone app that keeps track of ammo and other stats. The pistols of this Recoil starter set have three hit detectors for pinpoint accuracy.
Of course, most young girls are going nuts for Hatchimals and the new Hatchimals Surprise is a fun new twist on this super popular toy.
Inside Hatchimals Surprise is a set of twin Hatchimals, but which two you’ll get is the surprise! Kids get so thrilled with the anticipation of waiting for their egg to hatch. Interact with the speckled purple-and-teal egg, and then help with the hatching process to reveal what’s inside. The surprise of seeing which plush electronic pet you get is part of the magic of this Hatchimal toy.
There’s still time to head to Best Buy for this season’s hottest toys and tech! From Hasbro to Barbie to Lego, they have a huge selection both in store and online.
