Electronic toys as their name suggests are first and foremost toys designed to provide children with tons of fun. However there are also electronic toys that provide more than just fun. These are the electronic learning toys.
Electronic learning toys are designed with a threefold purpose. First they provide your children with entertainment. But at the same time they help your child learn something of the world about them. Finally they allow you to monitor your child’s learning skills.
During the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, electronic toys made their way into dolls and stuffed animals. Teddy Ruxpin was one of the more popular electronic dolls throughout this era. This was a cute teddy bear-like doll that was approximately one foot tall and furry. The novelty of Teddy Ruxpin was that there was a cassette tape inserted into its back and the lips would move as the cassette tape was played. It appeared as if he was speaking. Other advancements were made in other dolls. The My Buddy doll was innovative because it spoke and the legs also moved to make it appear as if it was walking. In recent years, more advancements have been made to make dolls appear much more lifelike.
