The holiday season is a magical time for little ones. In Elite Traveler’s gift guide for kids, we bring a selection of incredible toys that are sure to make this year one they will remember forever.
It has been almost 20 years since Sony first introduced Aibo to the world and their adorable robot puppy has returned better than ever just in time for the holiday season. Its leading-edge artificial intelligence engine allows each Aibo to recognise up to 100 faces. Over time, it adapts its behaviour to their owner’s personality, meaning no two are ever the same.
A stunning replica of the mythical Aquarama Special speedboat, this exceptional object is entire handmade from mahogany wood and made to an exact scale of 1/7. Only 100 have been made, making it as elusive as the Aquarama Special itself.
This is the largest and most detailed model of the Millennium Falcon that Lego has ever produced. The incredibly detailed replica will be appreciated by Star Wars fans of all ages and, boasting 7,500 pieces, would be the perfect family project for the holiday season – just read the instructions first!
A slim satchel that doubles up as a backpack, this delightful creation from Burberry will give kids a reason to be excited for their first day back at school. Along with the vintage check design, the bag is decorated with a leather monster motif.
Do you have a little one dreaming of a trip to the Serengeti? You can bring the safari to their bedroom with a lifelike, eight-foot giraffe. Renowned for producing the plushest of hand-crafted stuffed animals, Hansa also makes sure their artists work in a socially and environmentally responsible studio.
We may not have the hoverboards that Back to the Future promised us just yet, but this top-of-the-line electric skateboard is about as close you can get to feeling like Marty McFly. With a top speed of 26mph and a range of 31 miles, this is certainly better suited for the wild child in your life.
