CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today VTech® and LeapFrog® announced their KidiZoom® PrintCam™ and LeapFrog® Choppin' Fun Learning Pot™ were named to the TTPM Holiday Most Wanted List, predicting the hottest toys of the year. This year's list was divided into four categories, with VTech and LeapFrog being selected for the Learning & Developmental Play Hot Dozen™ list by TTPM, a leading video product reviewer for toys, baby and pet gear.
"With so many new toys available every year, it's an honor to be recognized as 'Most Wanted' by TTPM," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Our KidiZoom PrintCam offers the on-trend technology kids want in a digital camera that prints instantly, with the pennies-per-print value parents will love. And, our Choppin' Fun Learning Pot combines playtime and learning, with food pieces that are 85% plant-based plastic made from renewable sources, contributing to our ongoing sustainability goals."
VTech's KidiZoom PrintCam is a kid-friendly, age-appropriate digital camera that lets kids preview their photos on a color screen and instantly print regular or panoramic photos in black and white. Using cost-effective thermal paper, kids can also print games, and design and print their own greeting cards, play money, comic strips and more. There is a flip-up lens for selfies and three games to play too. Photos and videos can also be uploaded under adult supervision via the included USB cable.
LeapFrog's Choppin' Fun Learning Pot is an interactive cooking pot that comes with snap-apart veggies, utensils and a cutting board that all store in or on the pot. Kids can follow step-by-step recipes, chop the food and set the temperature, then watch the pot "boil." Hear the pot respond with encouraging phrases and realistic cooking sounds, count to 10 and talk about colors as kids prepare the recipes.
"VTech and LeapFrog hit the right balance of what kids want and what parents are looking for again, whether it's the coolest age-appropriate tech or a trendy pretend kitchen appliance that offers learning fun," said Jim Silver, CEO, TTPM. "We think the KidiZoom PrintCam and Choppin' Fun Learning Pot both deserved a spot in our Hot Dozen."
