Fisher-Price and Mattel have their finger on the pulse of tech-obsessed tots — even those just starting out. Among the toys we can't wait to get our hands on is the Imaginext Apptivity Fortress ($40, available Fall 2013). The augmented reality toy has a Fortress case (complete with an attached cannon and sentry points) that serves as a backdrop to an app that loads different games depending on which character you're using. Tots interact with onscreen characters — a knight or a troll — to fend off trolls. They can even be knighted throughout the games. By using the iPad's camera, other toys (and friends) in the room become involved in your adventure.
