Get ready for a new fun way to mobile game & have fun with your iPad. Yup, kids are still taking over your tablets. One of the hottest new trends this holiday season is App accessory toys for your iPhone, Android and iPad devices. Toy makers are getting in on the trend of kids interest in smart phones and tablets. They’re making toys more interactive through custom apps & features to make play more fun. By connecting compatible smart phone devices to the app accessory, you’re well on your way to an augmented reality gaming experience. One of the best features of app accessory toys is that you can have virtual gaming fun anywhere and at any time.
