In the 15 years I worked at Toys “R” Us, I sometimes leaked information about video game sales and posted them on message boards. I even took games home early to try them and then post impressions, which was very much against the rules. I did this because I’ve always been excited about video games and because,…
We’re not seeing a lot of new Yoda toys this Force Friday, and that’s probably because we all remember the character dying during The Return of the Jedi. There is one, though, and with its intense set of animated eyes it will stare deep, and uncomfortably, into your soul.

The Emperors at Disney and Lucasfilm have declared that all Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys are only to be revealed during ‘Force Friday’ events on September 4. But apparently the stock people at a British Columbia Toys “R” Us didn’t get that memo.

We thought it was just the Technic sets that Toys R Us put up on their online store, but after much searching on their page, they have also listed nearly the entire line of Creator sets for 2015. Another whoops advance view of what is to come in 2015.
As the collector's market for action figures has grown, it's been unsurprising to see the rise of toys based on 'adult' properties - almost everything has action figures these days.

So starting October 1st, every child's favorite store will start selling a seven-inch, $150 Android device called the Tabeo (Tabby-oh? Tabe-e-oh?) targeted at younger users.
One more US retailer could scoop up the iPad 2, if a leaked photo can be trusted. While online shipping time is now less than a month, retailers are still finding that stock flies out of their shelves faster than they can keep them stocked. If Apple can get more stock in from Taiwan, this rumored partnership with Toys…
It's important to use a good laser to sight your rifle—nearly as important as teaching your infant how to shoot. The Accudot 300 gets the job done. And it's available now at Toys 'R' Us. It's giraffe season!
