Hot Toys for the Holidays

Now that November is here, I know many people have already started their holiday shopping.  Whether you're that person or the one who will start soon, here's a list of hot holiday toys that your kids will love:

Pull it, swing it and fling it like a pro with the Helix Power Swing from YULU. Thanks to its unique “hyper spin,” the football-shaped Power Swing can launch over 350 feet! Helix Power Swing is designed to help kids unleash their ultimate throwing power. Defy new challenges like the Apollo Shot, Helix Ring Shot, Power Catch Challenge and others. It's the toy that will get them on their feet and moving.

The world’s most poop-ular Emoji just got wee bit stickier! Meet Sticky the Poo from Hog Wild. This poo sticks to the floors, the walls, even the ceiling. It’s super squishy, sticky surface and moldable middle let it “splat” and stick to just about any flat surface. Then pull it off and start all over again. And if Sticky Poo gets dirty, just wash it with water and it returns to its original sticky surface. Available in three different faces, collect and “splat” them all!

Whether you love sushi or not - Flying Sushi Kitchen is sure to cause a ruckus at kitchen tables  everywhere. Flying Sushi Kitchen puts your competitive skills to the test as you pluck pieces of floating sushi rolls from mid-air. It's a mad dash scramble to fill your sushi order and rack up enough tickets to beat the competition. With kid friendly chopsticks even younger kids will enjoy this sushi filled adventure!

Continuing with the squish craze comes a new Smooshy Mushy line is full of exciting, super S-Q-U-I-S-H-Y, slow-rise surprises! From pets and besties to Bentos and Frozen Delights to the new Smooshy Mushy BABIES! And let's be honest, what could be cuter than a squishy Smooshy Mushy Baby?

Grab your friends and put your skills to the test with Cut the Wire from YULU. Players compete to see who cuts the right wire, defuses the device, and saves the day. Use secret clues for hints to help figure out how to avoid cutting the wrong wire and losing the game. It’s the ultimate race to see who can defuse or lose... before it’s too late!

With the success of the Spy Code games of 2017, YULU expands this spy line with the introduction of Hackathon.  One player, the operator, is trapped in a virtual room trying to hack into a top secret government hard drive.  The other players are the "Experts" who must give the hacking instructions to break through the eight different modules by deciphering the information found in the instruction manuals.  But there's a catch: the experts can't see the hard drive and the operator can't see the manuals.  So everyone will need to talk it out, and fast!

Get ready to race the pace or face the shock with Pacemaker Extreme, new from YULU.  In this adult party game, players try to outwit their opponents by thinking quick and keeping the pace.  Players need to pay close attention to how many times the other players are tapping their paddles since that will set the pace of the pulse.  Tap your paddle once and the pulse moves to the next player; Tap twice to reverse the pulse and tap three times to skip the next player.  Be careful: If you tap when it's not your turn, you get shocked and your'e out!

There's a monster under your bed!  Get ready to create more animated movies with Stikbot Monsters and Stikbot Mega Monsters, new from Zing!  With over 360 million views on YouTube, Stikbot continues to turn kids into creative stop-motion animation moviemakers.  Stikbot Monsters are easy-to-pose figures, built with suction cup hands and feet, which can stick to almost any flat surface.  With the free Skikbot Studio app, available on iOS and Android, kids can snap individual photos and stitch them together into a film, complete with built-in music and effect options. 
Do any of the toys on this list seem like something your kids would like?
