TOSY Toop Motorized Spinning Tops Battle Beyblades

Tosy Toop

It turns out that Beyblades are not the only top in town when it comes to spinning top toys.  New from Toy Fair 2012 is the TOSY Toop – Motorized Spinning Top.  What makes the TOOP so special is that fact that it can spin for hours!  In fact the Toop set a world record for longest spinning top.

The Toop Tops Are All About Power and Lights

To appreciate the TOSY Toops, you really need to see them in action.  Here is a great video review of TOSY Toops from DadDoes.Com .  Check out how the tops keep spinning, even when they get bumped.  This is a very different type of game than with Beyblades.

In the review, there was one big negative to the TOSY Toops – they use 4 triple A batteries.  In addition, the top will only run for 2 hours on one set of batteries.  It would seem like a very wise idea to use rechargeable batteries with the TOSY Toop Motorized Spinning tops.

I think I will try a battle TOSY Toop vs. Beyblades – I wonder who will win :)

Recon Rover by SmartLab Toys

Recently the Recon Rover Toy Robot was reviewed by DadDoes.Com . For those who are not familiar with the Recon Rover, it is a programmable toy robot rover that is made by SmartLab toys.  No computer is required, you simply enter commands, one line at a time, directly on the Rover.  You use things like – move forward 2 feet, turn 90 degrees, play a sound, return to home.

The Recon Rover was shown at Toy Fair 2012 and it is now starting to appear in YouTube videos and hands-on reviews.  Here is a video review of the Recon Rover Toy Robot that is popular on YouTube.

The Big Question, Is the Recon Rover Worth $70?

At $70, the Recon Rover is a fairly expensive toy.  After reading the full review of the Recon Rover over at DadDoes.Com, it does look like it is money well spent.  The Rover is very fun to play with and it is also teaching kids math, problem solving, programming and mapping skills.

Stay tuned for additional toy reviews and information from Toy Fair 2012.
