If you have little girl, it’s likely that you remember Zhu-Zhu pets. Those cutey little motorized hamsters that were all the rage a few Christmases ago. Well, Cepia, the company that allowed you the privilege of standing on line to buy those furry critters, is doing it again…
Check out Happys, the only line of interactive puppy and kitty plush pets that you can play with, train to perform tricks and make more than 25 silly sounds. Kids can play “keep away” or simply roll The Happy’s ball and watch them chase after it. Hold the Happy’s treat and they’ll come running.
Each different treat will prompt your pet to perform a different trick like beg, pounce, follow, chase tail or spin, and all Happy’s treats work with any Happy’s pet – so the more treats, the more tricks the Happy’s will do!
Four sweet and silly characters compose The Happy’s litter, including 3 dogs and a kitty, each with its own name, treat, and unique personality. Rest assured there will be plenty of playsets and accessories, including beds, vehicles and fashion carriers.. Happy’s will be arriving this spring, just in time for Easter. No word yet on price, but do yourself a favor and get them quick, so I won’t have to say “I told you so”

Any parent can acknowledge that your arms are perpetually going to be tired if you have a kid. Children are often the most comfortable being in the embrace of their parents, and for babies, they don’t really have a choice in the matter. As we are only human, having a rocking chair for your little one to hang out in for a while does everyone a bit of good.
If you like having the best of the best for…everything, then the rockaRoo might be a good option for a rocking chair. This is a low to the ground, self-rocking seat with a mobile that has removable toys to distract your little bundle of joy. If that isn’t enough, there’s also the option to plug in your smartphone and let them ‘rock’ out to some tunes. Even though it has five rocking speeds, try to stay away from any form of metal (it probably couldn’t keep up).
The fabric on the seat is easy to remove, and is thankfully machine washable. You only need to plug this in for it to start rocking away, and it can support children up to 25 pounds. This will only be relevant until your child can sit up without help though, so it does make this $180 purchase something you’ll have to think over. If this was also a phone dock, that would make this closer to being worth the price, and also kind of hilarious. Should you need it, there’s also a newborn insert for when you have a teeny-tiny tot.
Available for preorder on shop4moms, found via cnet

A child’s imagination is truly something worth admiring, that is for sure. The thing is, we adults sometimes work to stifle such imagination, but here is one particular toy that you might just be interested in – the $89.95 Children’s Animating/Projecting Camera from the folks over at Hammacher. This is no ordinary camera by itself, no sir. This particular shooter will allow kids to apply colorful, zany animations to pictures, before these images are then projected onto a wall. Prior to pressing the shutter button, kids will have the ability to line up shots thanks to the 1.75” LCD display, where they have a choice of one of 50 animated effects that are provided by the camera’s built-in editing software.
Among these would include seven overlay scenes, where among them would be a flying superhero, a gyrating disco dancer, or a goal-scoring soccer star. Not only that, children also have the ability to apply for other effects, where among them are an elephant trunk and ears, a viking hat, or even a mohawk. All it takes is a flip of a lever in order to convert the camera into a projector, and when you turn off the lights and hold the camera 24″ from a wall, it will show off a child’s show, where before that there will be the drawback of animated curtains and applause from the integrated speaker. Capable of stashing up to 1,000 JPEG images, the Children’s Animating/Projecting Camera will be powered by a quartet of AA batteries.

A child is one who has plenty of imagination, so much so that when you hand him or her a normal cardboard box, they will be able to turn it into a spaceship, a time machine, a race car, the list goes on and on. Having said that, how about a specially manufactured piece of cardboard that will literally add some color and light to your child’s life? We are talking about the £39.99 Cardboard Rocket, where it is a snap to assemble, not to mention ready to be painted as well as decorated. Oh yeah, and the trees of the hills will undoubtedly be relaxed, since the Cardboard Rocket itself is made out of environmentally friendly cardboard.
The Cardboard Rocket will be avaialble in white (all the easier for you to paint it with afterwards), and comes in a sturdy corrugated cardboard outer for storage when not in use. Following in the footsteps of furniture giant IKEA when it comes to its packaging, the Cardboard Rocket would be flat-packed, measuring around 113cm x 105cm x 5.5cm. Once it has been fully assembled and constructed, it will measure around 90cm x 162cm x 90cm. Needless to say, at such dimensions, adults are strictly prohibited from joining in the adventures of your child’s imagination.

I remember being a kid and having a little wooden cigar box in which to keep all my treasures. I would have given anything if that little box could have locked. There was something magical about being able to keep your secrets safe. I still have a little memento box, and I think they could be cute gifts for any little girl.
Check out the Girl Tech Keepsake Box, a modern spin on a centuries old tradition, this box happens to be the ultimate password-protected keepsake box for all of a girl’s private things. Once you set up, and lock this cute little pink box, it will only open to its owners voice and only if the secret password is spoken, can it be opened to reveal her treasures.
The Keepsake box comes with special digital memory tagging stickers and matching keys to help her “catalog” some of her special trinkets,ensuring she will never forget the stories behind each item. Adding to the excitement, she will find hidden within the box, an extra secret compartment for top secret, or special items that will require a second password in order to open.
So if you have a little girl, who might enjoy a remembrance box with some added security against pesky brothers, or little sisters. This might be the perfect gift. It’s available on amazon.com for under 35 bucks batteries not included, and if you still need help figuring out your Christmas lists, don’t forget to check out our coolest-gadgets.com gift guides.

Fictional billionaire Tony Stark is notoriously known to be extremely poor when it comes to choosing and giving gifts, at least this is what we have gathered from the Iron Man movies on the silver screen so far. This does not mean that you should emulate him in this matter, and if your other half has a huge love and admiration for this all-too-human superhero from the Marvel Universe, then you might want to get them the $44.99 Marvel Iron Man 3 LED Arc Reactor Ring.
The Marvel Iron Man 3 LED Arc Reactor Ring will not be able to power up an entire building with green energy, but it will still be able to light up thanks to its built-in batteries. Made out of solid metal alloy and accompanied by an enameled metallic finish, all you need to do is give it a tap, and it will begin to glow in a bright white manner. This particular accessory will glow for a full minute after being tapped, but unfortunately, it is unable to shoot repulsor beams – which is a good thing too, actually, since you might never know what kind of havoc can happen if that were to be a feature in the Marvel Iron Man 3 LED Arc Reactor Ring.

It’s no secret that kids these days love their technology. It’s not unusual to find kids glued to their phones or computers. There aren’t to many little gizmos out there that actually encourage kids to connect and interact with their buddies, especially younger kids. It would be nice to have a little gadget gift for the elementary school set.
Well, here it is, check out Hallmark’s Text Bands, cute little watch-like bands that help your little ones swap messages, words, or secrets, and inside jokes by wearing one of these fashionable bands and then bumping fists, shaking hands, high-fiving, or a half a dozen other ways we haven’t even thought of.
Simply choose a starter band, that comes equipped with a text module, and that’s where the fun begins. When your kids see other kids wearing a Text Band, they can instantly transfer their messages from band to band. Bands themselves can also be changed and traded, with many colors and themes available.
Set up is easy, simply enter up to 10 characters into the screen on the band , and swap them with a fist bump or hand shake. The bands light up as the message transfers from band to band and your Text Band holds up to 24 messages at a time, giving kids the perfect excuse to connect with their friends again and again. A great stocking stuffer, for under 10 bucks, at amazon.com.

The wild, wild west has always been the bedrock of many an interesting yarn to listen to, and even until today, there are young and impressionable kids out there who would love to live out the life of a sheriff, hunting down outlaws and making sure that those who practice a life of crime will not be able to reap the temporary rewards that accompany it. For that young one of yours who does seem to have a penchant for guns, the £14.99 Stixtoy Gun might be a reasonable purchase for the coming holiday season.
With it, you are more than free to come up with your very own rubberband toy gun, and it would be interesting to see dads fight with their kids for ownership of this puppy. I say, why not get two of these bad boys and run riot around the home? Those who can remember how in their younger days, they used rubberbands with twigs and branches to create their own “gun”, but why not let someone do all the work for you while you start to device your next “stick-up”? Who knows, it could very well be a raid on the kitchen for that prized cookie jar and its contents.

When you were a wee lad, what kind of toys did you have? Most of us who were not all that well off had to settle for some pieces of crayons and perhaps a few sheets of paper, while others had nothing but a cardboard box which could be turned into a spaceship, a pirate’s ship, or even a castle, and how about one of those Formula 1 race cars? In this day and age, imagination among kids seem to have died somewhat, as special effects has made watching movies a whole lot more passive. Lord of the Rings fans will find the $129.99 Hobbit Sting FX Sword something worth purchasing, where in the books (and movies), each time an orc is detected, Sting would start to glow to alert the wielder.
Well, with the Hobbit Sting FX Sword, you no longer need to pretend with a wooden sword that it glows when your neighbor’s kids are around, where all you need to do is twist the sword, and it will begin to glow. Of course, no Middle Earth magic is involved here, just a pair of good old AA batteries would get the job done. Don’t expect this to be a guaranteed way of detecting the presence of orcs, much less your boss!
