Prima’s Top Toys for Festive Season 2018
The Festive Season is around the corner. And this year, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles will not only be spoilt for choice, they’ll probably remember some of the toys from their own childhood. Nostalgia toys continue to make a serious comeback, together with collectibles and toys that incorporate robotics and technology.
This Festive Season there is something for everyone and for all ages from toddler to tween to teenager. There is also a wide range of classic and new games that adults can enjoy.
The theme for 2018 is Let them explore. It’s about letting children enjoy and explore their world through play. It’s about giving them the opportunity to discover new things, new play patterns, new technology and more. With the array of toys that will be available in stores from now until the end of the year, children of all ages will have the opportunity and the excitement of exploring new ranges.
Below is the official Prima Top Toys list for boys… Girls and toddlers list to follow soon.
Ben 10 is still at the top of the list in terms of boy’s toys. Benjamin Tennyson moonlights as Ben 10, a superhero with special powers that he discovered from a young age when his signature Omnitrix device miraculously attached itself to his wrist. The Ben 10 range features all the alien figurines in various sizes ad movement capabilities. There are also exciting playsets including the Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber and the Transform & Battle playset.
New to the range is Ben 10 Action Projection Omnitrix, the Omni Launcher which includes 2 figurines, the deluxe Transforming figure and the Alien Creation Chamber.
Catch Ben 10 on Cartoon Network and on SABC 2.
Big Hero 6
The toys in this range are based on the animated superhero series of the same name. The series is about a young robotics prodigy who forms a superhero team to combat a masked villain. Now fans can collect and display their favourite characters from Big Hero 6: the series which is now showing on Disney XD. Toys in the range include Micro Chibi figures, action figures, feature figures, Armoured Up Baymax and Blast Flying Baymax. Available September.
Especially for boys who love to hunt for treasure, Treasure X is a new toy that engages the senses as children scratch, dig and unearth the lost bounty. Like any good treasure hunt, Treasure X is about more than just what you find, it’s about the fun of finding it too. Hidden somewhere inside the Treasure X brick are a collectible skeleton figure and a treasure chest which contains a gold treasure.
Children can hunt for the buried goodies using the plastic X-cavator to chisel away at the soft rock of the brick. Even after excavation, the discovery isn’t over as the pieces of the figure need to be snapped together to reveal its themed character. Add water to the chest to trigger a fizzy reaction to find out if the treasure is gold.
With 24 figures to collect and the potential for gold in each box, boys will keep wanting to dig for Treasure X. Available September.
StretchMini Stretch Justice League Figures are just some of the fantastic toys available in the Stretch range. Each toy can stretch up to 5 times its original size, it then slowly shapes back, ready to be pulled and twisted all over again. Look out for Mini Stretch X-Ray and Mini Stretch VacMan, Stretch Batman and introducing Disney Pixar Mini Stretch Mrs Incredibles.
