Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Once again, the folks at WowWee have created some of the hottest toys for the holidays. At the top of lots of lists are what are called Fingerlings….electronic animals that respond to sound, motion and touch. Who knew something so small could be so much fun. And that’s made them tough to find! Also new from WowWee is Chippette…a scaled down robotic dog that can interact with ChiP…the full sized version. For kids who love Despicable Me….there’s a new Minion Turbo Dave robot that can even get kids started on coding. Product Manager Sydney Wiseman says there’s also a new high tech DigiLoom that lets kids create using an app to help design….
“And you design anything that you want on this app, in the form of a bracelet, and you send it to the machine and it prints exactly what you want, totally custom.”
The starter kits sells for about 40 dollars.
