Air Hogs MotoFrenzy
Suggested retail price: $24.99
Maker: Spin Master
Age group: 8 and up
Air Hogs MotoFrenzy speaks to this year's miniature toy trend. Toymaker Spin Master claims it is the world's smallest remote-control motorbike. Measuring 3-1/4 inches in length and 2-1/4 inches in height, the bike comes with an action figure.

"It can ride any terrain, and do jumps," said Harold Chizick, vice president with Spin Master. "But the coolest innovation is the technology in it that allows the bike to do sharp turns without losing its balance."

"The 'wow' factor with this toy is that you can't believe it balances so many cool things at such a good price," said Chris Byrne, a toy industry analyst. "And, with MotoFrenzy, kids can play with it on the dining table or the kitchen floor."
