The latest models can tell stories and sing songs, and utilize apps and augmented reality.

Manufacturers of smart toys in China are steering R&D efforts toward interactivity and connectivity by launching units that converse with users and pair with mobile devices.

A number of products can teach and speak English, sing songs, and tell stories, providing not only entertainment for children, but also interactive learning. One toy wraps around the finger and makes different reactions via sensors. Another doubles as a speaker and a night light.

Suppliers are also releasing app-enabled units. A device in this gallery, for instance, pairs with smartphones via a QR code, bringing physical objects to a virtual environment. It also teaches words in 13 different languages. A miniature candy claw machine that plays music while being operated is included as well.

The products below were selected by our China-based Market Analyst for representing current trends in smart toys.
