The Futurist: Hottest tech toys of 2012

Love gadgets and electronics? Here are the hottest tech toys of 2012:

It's a magical time of year for children all over the world, but today’s kids wouldn't be happy with yesterday’s toys. 

When it comes to unwrapping a robot in 2012, kids have to have the disco-robo. This boppin’ buddy would put Michael Jackson to shame, boogying to everything on the playlist.  The tiny robo dancer is one of the hottest tech toys this Christmas and it’s modestly priced around $40.

Did you know back in the 1974 G.I. Joe was the first toy to invent the Kung Fu grip. Back then that was high tech.

Today kid’s don’t want to manually do things with their toys. They want the new Parrot AR Drone that flies like the real thing while capturing HD photos and videos that are streamed directly to their smartphone. With a single touch, kids can control their AR Drone from take-off, to landing, to even hover and flip.

Finally the season’s most highly anticipated toy for boys and girls is the hit Christmas toy from 1998. 

Furby is back and he’s more high-tech than ever. The more you interact, the more he comes to life. He can sing, dance, and communicate with your smart phone.

Santa's got robotic reindeer and a hybrid sleigh as he brings this season’s high tech toys on the Futurist.
