Toy Testers 2011 kicks off soon - Here's a preview

Toy Testers 2011 kicks off Monday, Nov. 14! Watch each morning and night as Lauren Keith and dozens of Heartland children test toys before you buy them!

From a flying fish you control to the latest in spy camera gear, we have more than three dozen toys sure to fit most age groups. We also have the latest toys from Vtech and Leap Frog, which includes a popular new tablet.

Also, we have this year's spin on the Fisher Price Kid Tough See Yourself Camera. We have toys for 2 and 3 year olds as well as older elementary students. See if the newest laser pointer can direct a car that flips and see if a new jewelry boutique is something your little Princess needs.

We put the toys in local classrooms for more than a week, and then returned to find out what's sitting in a corner and what's still very popular.

Meantime, local teachers weigh in on what's the best value for gift givers this holiday season.

Be sure to watch Toy Testers Monday-Friday on the Breakfast Show and Heartland News at 10 starting Nov. 14 through 18, only on KFVS12 and kfvs12.com!   All video will be posted to this site.  Feel free to write your review if you've tried a certain toy, too!

    The consensus was clear in Ms. Beers' third grade class at Jefferson Elementary, the Fingerlings baby monkey is a toy they want.
