Age: 8 and up

Why buy: Brian the Brain asks a child a series of questions, then becomes a fully interactive artificial buddy. This toy comes with a full Encyclopedia Britannica, a dictionary, a world-history timeline and a calculator. He also has jokes, trivia, a digital clock, a schedule planner and a calendar. Brian can make phone calls, serve as a MP3 player speaker and guard a room with his motion sensor. This has to be the coolest high-tech educational item ever! (Amazon, $144)
