News 12’s toy test is asking the experts, kids, to test the newest toys and tell us what they like best. The 3&4 year olds tell 12 On Your Side which toys they want for Christmas.
Christmas did come early at the Little World of Learning Day Care in Augusta. We dropped off about 65 of the most popular new toys there all at once including Dancing Dora. When the shock wore off, the kids tried all of them and here are some of the favorites.
Race cars on a race track are as popular as ever this year. With the Fisher Price Shake and Go Speedway all you do is shake the cars and let them go. Infrared technology lets a recorded announcer call the action.
The Dress and Dance Dora Doll was a sensation with the girls.
Anticipation games kept kids on the edge of their seats in the pre-kindergarten room, like Bukcaroo which flips off stacked game pieces after a set amount of time.
And kids have to hurry to fit the pieces in place before time runs out on Poppin Puzzlers.
The kids also spent time with the Teacher Teddy Bear game and the Winnie the Pooh card set.
The Crawlerpiller looked like fun, but although it was meant for this age group it was just a little too small for most of the kids.
