Holiday Hits From Time to Play Toy Showcase

Last week, I got a sneak peek at the newest toys for Holiday 2011 at the Time to Play Toy Showcase in New York. Over the next few posts, as we gear up for the holiday gift buying – ready or not – I’ll highlight the latest and greatest products that are sure to wind up on wish lists everywhere. The first two are the Voice Rockrz™ Mic that lets your child be a rock star, and Annoying Orange, the YouTube sensation now in real life coming to Toys’R’Us this holiday.

Voice Rockrz™ Mic

Tap into the magic of Voice Rockrz™ Mic from First Act. Much more than a microphone, the Voice Rockrz™ Mic transforms performances, propelling any show from the living room to the stage. The interactive microphone ‘magically’ changes a child’s voice as they perform with just a tap of the included accessories – a ring and bracelet – to the Mic target zone. Kids can sound like stars and elevate their performances to new heights with the Mic’s incredible voice effects. Tap the ring to the Mic to activate the Hi-Note voice effect; tap the bracelet to the Mic to change up the show with the Echo-Tastic voice effect; or tap the ring and bracelet in succession to uncover the Robot-Riffic voice effect.

A rock extravaganza wouldn’t be complete without concert sound effects like audience applause or a crescendo-ing drumroll. Kids can cycle through these sounds with the simple press of the FX button on the Voice Rockrz Mic. By plugging in any MP3 player into the 1/8th” jack (MP3 player not included), they can rock on by singing along to their favorite songs using the magical Voice Rockrz voice effects. Available in pink with flower ring and cute skull bracelet, and blue with skull ring and zipper bracelet. For ages 4-10, this engaging toy retails for $24.99. For information, visit

Annoying Orange

The viral hit known as Annoying Orange is now available as a toy. The popular orange and its sidekicks will be on Toys’R’Us shelves this holiday. Annoying or funny, this is a great gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list. Each orange has an exclusive online code. For information, visit, and on Facebook and Twitter.
