This is what Stuart Grant, The Entertainer’s buying director, had to say: “Interactive toys are very exciting for youngsters and stimulate their senses and imagination”.
“They pick up new technology in a flash and love getting their hands on the grown-up gadgets.
“Parents have cottoned on to the idea that they can use their children’s appetite for technology to boost their learning, which is what makes the tablets so popular.”
He also added “Blockbuster films have really inspired some of our choices this year”.
“Overall, it’s a very exciting collection for 2012 and we expect everything on the list to be high up a lot of young people’s Christmas lists.”
