NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The independent consumer organization, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, announces their list of the Best High-Tech Toys for 2010 on their website www.toyportfolio.com.
"The good news for consumers is that the cost of technology is coming down," notes co-founder Joanne Oppenheim. "Toy makers know they need to be competitive this season so we've seen the prices really coming down for the holidays. One of the emerging trends is video camera equipment for every age group. Our list includes everything from a Barbie with a camera to an RC Helicopter that can capture images while it flies. Creepy bugs of all kinds also made their way to our high tech list this year."
According to the Oppenheims, the most innovative toy of the year is Kinect from Microsoft. Co-founder Stephanie Oppenheim tells parents: "Say goodbye to all of those hand-held controllers; they will soon go the way of the 8 track player. Now your body is the controller!"
