Local News

Robots are all the rage this holiday season, especially ones that respond to touch and motion.

The $15 fingerlings, which have new characters this year, have sensors in the nose and head.

Learn the right gestures for the toys to react and make different noises, including kid favorite — farts!

The $80 Zoomer Playful Pup also responds to voice commands.

If you want to turn screen time into learning time, there’s Kano’s $99-dollar Harry Potter Coding Kit.

Aspiring wizards build a wand with the provided circuit board.

Kids can program their own spells with block coding or do iconic Harry Potter spells. 

If you got a Nintendo switch last year, you can transform the gaming experience with the Nintendo Labo kits, which cost around $60 to $70.

These DIY cardboard kits challenge kids and parents to build accessories for the controllers like a joystick, steering wheel and foot pedals.

And hit the track with the new hot wheels “zoom in” which retails for a dollar. You can mount a go pro hero session camera to see what it’s like from the driver’s seat. Go pro not included.
