New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/12/2012 -- The 2012 holiday season is shaping up to be to filled with fun and clever toys. Dad Does, a product review blog, has been busy doing hands-on reviews of all the new toys that have been launched in 2012. This week they have added a number of new toy reviews which will help parents find the best toys for the 2012 holiday season.
When you think of Gears of War, you think of teens playing one of the most popular third person shooter video games of all time. When you think of Erector Sets, you think of a construction set that was featured in old black and white magazine ads before we had TVs. It may seem like a strange pairing then to see Gears of War and Erector Sets come together in the new Gears of War Erector Sets.
To test out the marriage of Gears of War and Erector, Dad Does reviewed the Erector Gears of War COG Centaur set. In the video review, they show how easy it was to follow the instructions and build the Centaur tank. In addition, Dad Does explains that the Centaur tank was fun to put together and is solid and a great project for Dads to do with their kids.
For families with younger kids, Dad Does recommends something a little less violent than the Centaur tank. One fun option is the Micro Chargers miniature race cars. The Micro Chargers are tiny race cars that can be charged up in under 10 seconds. Once you let the cars go off the chargers, they can travel at speeds of up to 600 MPH (scale speed).
“The Micro Chargers are super fast and super fun. We love how it only takes 10 seconds to charge them up. In addition, it is great that you can race them on standard Hot Wheels tracks, as almost any family with boys will have some Hot Wheels tracks lying around” states Dan Nessel of DadDoes.Com
For kids who like to be active, but still love gadgets, Dad Does recommends the Jakks Pacific Action Shot Digital Video Camera. The Action Shot camera is a POV (point of view) camera that kids can attach to their helmet, handlebars, skateboard or just hold in their hand.
The Action Shot camera is just $49.95 for the base model. If you want to upgrade, you can buy an LCD screen, waterproof case, shockproof case and more. Creating videos is easy and in just a few clicks kids can share their videos with all their friends.
Nessel states “The Action Shot Camera is going to be a hit with kids ages 8 and up. At $49.95, it is not as expensive as most video cameras and it is also durable and easy to use. We also love how you can buy accessories depending on how much you want to do.”
Dad Does will continue to focus on creating guides to the best toys of 2012, so parents can make informed buying decisions. Customers in learning more about the Dad Does review process are encouraged to visit DadDoes.Com .
