And that was the week that was! Toybox's first week has been quite a success - here's a round-up of our best material from the past 7 days.

Toybox is well on its way to its 300k US Uniques target for September, racking in 102k as of yesterday. It's a great start, and it's too early to rest on any laurels yet: but sincerely, thank you for reading, and I hope you'll to continue to do so over the next few months. We've looked a lot of things this week - from dodgy tie-in cutlery to the ways children are picking up languages through video games, from Persona 5's new hero to Star Trek papercraft. Let's look back, shall we?
