Star Wars The Star Wars BB-8 Hero Droid!  This incredible droid first appeared in 2016 and looked to answer our wishes for an amazing, interactive, massive BB-8!  Since we first saw it, it’s had a few updates, the controller is different, it is now RF instead of IR, and the biggest difference is, we have a solid (ish) release date and a price!  $249, around August of this year!  I can’t say anything that the video isn’t already saying, so click play!  Then, scroll down and look at the pretty pictures!

Paw Patrol  To say that the litlgeeks is a Paw Patrol obsessed household is an understatement.  They are already going crazy over the pictures and video I showed them, and now you get to see it.  In 2017, the Pups get more new toys!  I massively enhanced Lookout Tower that stands about as tall as a 4 year old, with a spinning base that fits the Paw Patrol vehicles!  A boat!  A new truck!  The Pups in all new adventure gear!  

 

 

Hatchimals  Hatchimals ran away with the holiday season of 2016.  How do they top it?  Do they get bigger?  No actually, smaller!  Expect adorable Hatchimals that you have to do a little bit more manual work to hatch.  Expect more colors and patterns on the full sized Hatchimals, most of all, expect that you should be able to get your hands on them, we even saw some at Toys R Us this weekend!

Tech Deck  Tech Deck has some awesome decks for 2017!

Playmobil made huge waves at this years Toy Fair with their first ever entertainment licensed Playmobil sets.  By now most everyone has heard, Playmobil will be releasing a line of amazing Ghostbusters toys, as well as a line of How to Train Your Dragon toys!  Put that together with all of their other amazing toys, boats, Romans, Egyptian Pyramids, camping sets, grab and go play sets.  Playmobil wins at play in 2017!

Ghostbusters | How to Train Your Dragon | Playmobil sets

Ghostbusters Playmobil took up the Ghostbusters license and knocked it out of the park.  They covered a ton of great characters, Ecto-1 and the firehouse.  Attention to detail at every single turn here, and affordable.  The firehouse will come in at around $70, which is much less than many competing products.  So much to love here and if this is a sign of things to come for Playmobil, excitement is even further off the charts!  Ghostbusters sets hit shelves in May!

 

How to Train Your Dragon  The How To Train Your Dragon license probably didn’t know how good it could get, but at Playmobil, everything fits, everything works.  The Playsets are absolutely jaw dropping, the dragons look amazing given the Playmobil treatment.  The level of interactivity here is second to none.  Check it out, it’s huge! It’s Berk!! (for only $119!) Kids are absolutely going to love playing with this stuff, to the point that I’m a little sad stuff like this wasn’t around when I was a litlgeek!  How to Train Your Dragon Playmobil toys will be out in August!

Playmobil Sets  Playmobil offers fun at every turn with their expansive library of playsets.  Roman conquerors, Egyptian temples, picnic playsets, zip-line adventures, a not so little yacht!  Did you know, all of their boats, except the upcoming (pictured) giant yacht actually float!  Carry Cases are fantastic, whole playsets that close up and you can take them with you.  NHL figures too!

Tomy is taking over the world, one Pokemon at a time.  This year, Tomy has gone to great lengths to expand the Pokemon line just massively.  Adding to their portfolio, they are bringing Lightseekers to market in the fall of this year.  One of the most innovative Toys-To-Life packages we’ve ever seen!  Let’s have a look at all the great stuff coming from Tomy this year!

Lightseekers | Pokemon | Sonic The Hedgehog | John Deere | Little Folks

Lightseekers  Lightseekers, coming this fall is a marvel in connected play.  Figures run off of “Fusion Cores”, they interact with a tablet / phone app, they have accelerometers, and tons of sold separately accessories from weapons to flight packs and more.  Unlike other toys to life games where you place a toy on a pad or portal, these toys, you move them in the real world and watch them move in the game.  It’s amazing and fun, and I can’t wait for Fall!!

Pokemon  Pokemon has exploded all over again, and Tomy is making some awesome toys for you to bring the experience into the real world.  Articulated action figures are the bread and butter, and the litlgeeks have loved them and have a massive collection.  The role play toys though are fantastic, pouches, belts, Pokeballs!  This year though, Tomy is offering adorable little collectible playsets and Pokemon, check out the images to see what I’m talking about, because honestly I lack words for something this adorable.

 

Sonic The Hedgehog  Tomy expands the Sonic The Hedgehog line further in 2017, more figures, more toys, more more more!
