Dream Toys 2010

Yesterday saw the Toy Retailers Association announce it’s annual list of Dream Toys.

The TRA complied their predictions of the Top 12 toys in 7 different categories, and then the best from all the list were combined to create the Dream Dozen.

I was pleased to see plenty of my favourite products making it onto the Dream Dozen, like the Lego City Airport, Kidizoom Videocam, Moon Dough and the Paper Jamz Guitar.

I had a great time at the show, and as you can imagine was in my element playing with all the new toys and gadgets, I also got loads of new ideas for toys to cover in the future. So be prepared for a Toybuzz deluge, as it’s look like Dream Toys is going to keep me busy all the way up until the big day itself!

Doozers go it alone

Really early heads up here!

A new television series has recently been announced based on the lives of the workaholic Doozers from the popular 80’s children’s television series Fraggle Rock.

Also with talk of a new Fraggle Rock movie ,theres no doubt that we will be seeing an accompanying set of Fraggle Rock and Doozer toys.

The Doozers were always my favourite part of the show with their funny catchy songs usually about something boring like work, Doozer law or even knitting in one episode.

Always busily constructing structures out of Radish dust ,that the Fraggles just came along and ate either afterwards or often in the middle of them building. Although that was the point, they wanted the Fraggles to eat so they would have more space to build again.

There’s no mention on that the Fraggles will be in the new series, which begs the question what will happen when all the building space has gone?

Doozers need Fraggles, so we’ll have to see what happens.  The series is due to be aired in the U.S. in late 2010, so who knows when we in the U.K will be able to find out.
