My son enjoys toys that respond to him and are interactive. I guess it makes him feel powerful being in control of something and giving it silly commands.
When we received the WowWee Elektrokidz toys, he was enchanted. He loved that their hair danced to music and would respond even when he spoke. He often plays music when he cleans his room so that he feels like he has company and a little bit of entertainment while he does so.
The batteries seem to last forever, so that is a bonus as we parents know what a hassle that can be! I like them because they remind me of the 80s style: whacky hair colors and funky sunglasses.
Here is the information from the WowWee website about Elektrokidz Tempo:
Elektrokidz are the first ever music–inspired collectables that dance to the beat of the music you are listening to!
Drop the Beat! The new Music Series of Elektrokidz have arrived with 6 ultra-cool new looks and groovy names like Tempo, Solo, and Dub! Elektrokidz are the only figures whose hair “dance” to the beat of the music you are listening to, and each come with their own pair of stylized shades.
