Toy Fair 2007 Round Up: Stupid Moving Toys (Happy Meal Nostalgia FTW)

Actually, these remote-controlled hopping lederhosen aren't that stupid. Pressing the button on the knockwurst remote [insert dick joke here] sends them into a convulsion of bouncing and yodelling for about 15 seconds, after which they shut off automatically. Okay, maybe they are kind of stupid. Sadly, I don't any… » 2/15/07 8:00am 2/15/07 8:00am

Sure, I might be a good decade and a half beyond their target market here, but I know what kids like. And they like accurate representation of their favorite… » 2/13/07 11:02am 2/13/07 11:02am

First Look: Lego Creator Monster Dino and Ferris Wheel

These use the same pieces and some of the sensors, gears and motors from the Mindstorms set, but don't require an engineering degree to put together or any software skill to operate.

Sea-Monkeygate: Triops Calls Out Sea-Monkeys, War Declared

Ladies and gentlemen, I present Sea-Monkeygate. While at the Toy Fair here in New York, I stumbled upon two products that essentially do the same thing (let you grow small animals in a small water tank): Sea-Monkeys and Triops. You've probably heard of Sea-Monekys, those weird things that come in packets and grow in… » 2/12/07 8:15am 2/12/07 8:15am
