Glux – Because You Really Do Need It

by Julie

I guess it all started with Play-Doh, then we had modeling clay, then came the ultimate moldable time killer, Silly Putty. I used to spend hours making it bounce, pressing it into the Sunday funnies and stretching out all the faces and then, well, that was about it. We have had a few interesting new compounds, but nothing that could kill a Sunday like Silly Putty. Until now… Enter the …

Triops – Move Over Sea Monkeys!

by Julie

Remember Sea-Monkeys? I couldn’t wait to set up my little plastic tank and hatch my own little sea monkey family, and teach them all the tricks listed on the box, and feed them, and take them places, and I would have done all those things too… if I ever got to see the suckers. I know they were there, little tiny pinpoints spotted in the sunlight, but they were so …

Computer Engineer Barbie – Does Barbie like Windows?

by Julie

I have to admit that as a kid I was never a Barbie fan, and all that Ken business, I for one was glad when they broke-up. I always wondered why they never made “perfect divorce Barbie” She could have come with the Dream House, the Corvette and most of Ken’s stuff, including half his paycheck,   but no, they made baby-sitter Barbie, ballerina Barbie and dog groomer Barbie, dolls …

Fijit Friends – Robots for Girls

by Julie

It’s no surprise that kids flock towards interactive toys. I remember when the closest thing I had to interactive toy was a my Rock Flowers doll, she would attach to the top of a little yellow record that every doll came with, and she would spin on top of your record player for as long as you left the darn thing on. I would dance with “Lilac” for hours. Forget …

I know it’s the dead of winter and it’s hard to remember what it’s like every summer, when the weather is beautiful and the sun is shining and you’re outside with the grill going and the kids are throwing around some water balloons and… MOMMY!

Treefies – Play the Game, Save the Planet

by Julie

Every toy these days seems to have an on-line world where you can design a room, change outfits and plant a pumpkin, but I’m not sure anyone is learning anything.

KidZui – The Internet for Kids

by Julie

I came home today to have my 8 year old daughter tell me she was on youtube.com and watched a naked man with his stuff  jiggling. I tried to appear unconcerned, while my face flushed with color and I considered my options. Luckily I asked her to show it to me, and the “stuff” to which she had referred was his enormous unclothed belly, which prevented you from being able …
