Top 5 Toy Picks Of 2004

By

The holiday season is here bringing in its wake a flurry of activity and excitement. Out of all the gifts exchanged, toys are the most prominent. Every year new toys come into the market. Some create a splash, while some of them exit with hardly a ripple. And every year the old stalwarts withstand yet another round of competition, to emerge as winners. Talking of winners, let’s jump right in, and take a look at 2004’s top favorite toys, brought to you by your guide at About.com.

1) Robosapien

This latest hitech toy robot from Wow Wee International Toys is fascinating to say the least! It can do a number of functions including bend forward, and backwards, dance, give a hi-five, make sounds, and even pick things up. This robot does not come without its limitations though & reminds us that we are still a long way from the space age robots which function without a hitch. The Robosapien's movements may be jerky, and it is rather a complicated toy to operate.
