Teksta is a little cute robotic dog. Designed in blue (male) and pink (female). These puppies are designed to behave exactly like living puppies. They will instantly respond to your call, a wave and sound as well as a ray of light. They have the ability to cry, bark, whimper and back-flip. They are programmable and so they can be made to fall asleep. This is one cute puppy.
The newest version of this owl-like toy can be connected to your laptop, iphone, ipad or Android device. Furby Boom can now give birth when connected. Your kids will now be able to use their laptop or smart-phones to take of Furby. She will be available in several colorful shades from October 2013.

Planes Wing Control Dusty
This plane would be loved by children because of the innovative remote control wings. The wings are worn on the child’s wrist and then used to control the movement of the toy plane.

This plane made the Argos top toys 2013 list, although it will be released in October 2013.
