These Takara Tomy toys serve a range of different purposes, providing everything from entertainment to snacks and companionship.

Some of the fun high-tech toys that you can get from the Japanese toymaker include robot dogs that you can control with your smartphone, micro-sized 3D cameras and bots that will relay your tweet notifications. When it's time to take a break from technology and fuel up with a snack, Takara Tomy's toys can take you right through from dinner to dessert, letting you recreate the experience of a sushi conveyor belt at a restaurant on a small scale in your own home, then create a pudding dessert using only an egg and a small hand-powered crank.
