Xeno Blue Toy similar to Furby

Xeno Interactive Toy

Xeno is an alternative to the ever-popular Furbys which have been dominating the last few Christmas toy seasons. So if Furbys freaked you out a little too much perhaps a Xeno may fit the bill. To me if it is a cross between a Furby/Doll and a huge Koosh Ball style as it has so many strands in just the same way that Koosh did from my Childhood.

  • Cute interactive Monster offering a play experience unlike any other.
  • Range of movements and emotions with LCD-based graphic eyes with over 40 different expressions.
  • Eight touch sensors and audio inputs.
  • Multiple Xeno’/Child minigames.
  • Xeno’ can communicate with his Xeno’ friends.

Teksta T-Rex is the follow-up to the hugely successful Teksta Robotic Puppy which was a sell out and hard to find toy last Christmas season.

The Teksta T-Rex the bone crushing dino! Should appeal to more boys this time round, but in my experience girls often more than boys like a good dinosaur or enjoy a dinosaurs phase and just like his puppy friend T-Rex responds to your voice, lights and sounds with expressive eye patterns to share his feelings.
