Our old friend Thomas the Train gets a high-tech update this year. Fill Thomas up with distilled water, then watch cool-to-the-touch steam rise from his smokestack as he chugs along with real train whistle sounds. He comes with a kid-friendly remote control to drive him forward, backward or activate his special spin moves.
The Tabeo tablet for kids, which features a 7-inch screen and a Wi-Fi connection, will be available at Toys R Us stores starting October 21 for $149.99.
