It’s been a great year for wannabe wizards. Kano’s kit (included elsewhere on this list) gets into the STEM side of the spell casting world, with motion-sensor equipped wands that are best for running wild and casting all the spells. When waved in one of 11 different Potter spell patterns, the wand lights up and makes noise. But the real fun comes when kids challenge one another to one of four different multiplayer modes. Our favorite: Wizard tag, which is basically laser tag but with wands.
