Top Toys To Buy For Christmas 2017 WORK
And we'd have to say we'd give this toy a ringing endorsement: it went down a STORM with all our child testers and 'scooped' (fnar) itself a Gold Award in the 2017 MadeForMums Toy Awards: just read what our testers had to say about it.

With The Last Jedi just about to hit cinemas, kids (and big kids) will be clamoring for Star Wars toys, and Sphero's app-controlled droids are right at the top of the wish list. This year's versions include BB-8's "evil twin" BB-9E, and the iconic R2-D2, in what we thought was the coolest toy version the little robot has ever seen.
Other highlights of the 2017 Lego catalog include a set honoring the influential women of NASA, the majestic Taj Mahal, and a reconstruction of the recently-opened Lego HQ building in Denmark, which itself was designed to look like it was made of the plastic bricks.
Think Lego on steroids! Same plastic pieces but with integrated hardware in it! Imagine a lego block that has a motor in it! Another one with a wifi adaptor or a receptor that triggers when you clap your hands. You can then unleash your master builder powers and craft interactive vehicles. There is only one problem, they are still raising funds on IndieGoGo and are scheduled to be released only in early 2017 so they cannot be bought for the upcoming Christmas :(
Recognising that many parents will be considering purchasing connected toys and other devices for their children, for Christmas 2017 the UK's Information Commissioner's Office issued a list of 12 guidelines for assessing products before purchasing. These include: research the product's security before buying; watch out for online shopping fraud; plan ahead to study the product's security and privacy options; change default user names and passwords; ensure your home router is security; use two-factor authentication wherever it's available; turn off remote viewing for web cameras unless you intend to use it; immediately change default GPS settings and location tracking and set strong, unique passwords; secure Bluetooth connections; discuss online safety and privacy with children; and send a message to retailers by not buying toys that raise questions about whether children's personal information will be kept safe. The ICO continues to work with manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers to encourage security by design through its Secure by Default project.
1. Read the reviews. Consumer organizations and others review connected devices and toys as part of their buying guides. Mozilla and Which? Both released buying guides for smart toys this holiday season.
Isn't life, in many ways, like Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy, children? We take impressive leaps forward, finding that sense of fulfilment and achievement that comes with developing the technology to visit billions of homes in a single night, hundreds of years before the enlightenment, in order to deliver toys to all the boys and girls, and then apparently that's not enough to "sustain a healthy relationship"!
