NZ’s Hottest Products this Christmas

NZ’s Hottest Products this Christmas

Media Release - 4th December 2015

Each year PriceMe tracks and releases the hottest search terms on their comparison shopping site, to help shoppers with ideas of what might be popular to buy the family this Christmas.

The most popular computer game this Christmas is Fallout 4. Kiwi Fallout fans have patiently waited around six years since the previous version was released. This game is an ideal Christmas gift for adults with Playstation 4 or Xbox One consoles, and it's also a great game to play on a PC. Parents should take note that this is a violent game with a restricted 18+ age rating.

Fitbit wearable activity trackers are one of the most searched-for products recently in New Zealand. It helps you keep track of your activity levels, making them ideal gifts for those looking to improve their health and fitness over summer.

The Lego brand and range of products continues to grow. Lego Dimensions starter-pack for Xbox One consists of Lego minifigures and a toy pad portal. The minifgures are placed on the toy pad portal to be used in the game.

Blenders and food extractors both top the charts this year. It seems Kiwis are becoming more interested in eating natural healthy food things, and these compact and easy-to-use little appliances deliver tasty and nutrious whole food that’s easily digestible and packed with vitamins and essential elements. The Nutri Ninja and Nutribullet will no doubt end up in many Christmas stockings this year.

Parents relax ! The Jumping Sumo drone by Parrot doesn't fly like most other mini drones, but rather jumps over obstacles instead. It's a fun toy that’s controlled using a mobile app (available for both Android and iOS), with the control range being around 50 metres using a Wifi connection. It has a front-facing camera that records and streams what it sees, so this gadget is useful for reconnaissance purposes. The Jumping Sumo's sibling is the Rolling Spider mini-quadcopter.

Young people love to take their music with them, so there's little surprise that portable wireless speakers are in demand this season. The designs of many new speakers are stunning, and bluetooth ensures easy connectivity with your electrical devices like smartphones etc. The most popular speaker is Logitech's UE Boom.
