Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces Its 2016 Toy Collection

New York, NY, December 6, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer announces a wide assortment of toys that ensure unique entertainment for children of all ages.

"From award-winning activity sets to interactive plush animals, our toys engage, challenge, and delight children the way parents and grandparents expect," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

One of the season's most sought-after remote control toys, The Auto Return Live Video Camera Drone-which can be seen hanging from the ceiling at Hammacher Schlemmer's landmark New York store in midtown Manhattan-sends live HD video back to its operator from up to one-half mile away.

In anticipation of the upcoming movie that will feature the on-screen space duels that inspired them, The Battling X-Wing And Tie Fighter Drones enable two players to vie for galactic supremacy by flying their craft and tagging the other with an infrared "laser."

When Winter's chill compels indoor recreation, The World's Lightest Toe Tap Piano still enables children to spend restless energy while tapping out a melody on this 28'-long piano's pressure-sensitive keys, while The Avengers Virtual Reality Battle challenges a would-be superhero to defeat the villainous Ultron within a virtual headset-and-blaster-powered universe.

Part of the Electronic Learning category, The Storytelling Bear reads bedtime classics such as Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the Three Bears to children, providing a quiet companion that shuts himself off after five minutes of inactivity.
