The Sphero Force Band controls BB-8 with the wave of your hand

by Caitlyn

When you watched Star Wars for the first time, how badly did you wish you could use the Force? While it is more complicated than simple telekinesis, that part is the one we all hone in on. For kids, that is amplified by a thousand, and they will pretend they have it and wave their arms around like mad regardless of whether or not they actually affect anything in the tangible world.

The Ice Meister Slicer All-Season Sled works on snow or dead grass

by Caitlyn

As someone who grew up in a place with real seasons, it’s pretty heart-breaking to move to a place that is dry and desert-like. You would never think you’d miss a rainstorm, but when it only rains in California about once every 3 months, it’s a noticeable thing to miss. That being said, the concept of winter here is a pretty laughable ordeal as you might only need a light sweater at the worst of it.

Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game: all the action, minus the sweat

by Edwin

advanced-nfl-electric-gameFootball — each season will bring with it new stories of triumph as well as defeat, joy and tragedy. Above all, it brings everyone together (as long as you support the same team, that is) regardless of one’s background, with the will of the fans sometimes helping the athletes to go beyond what they normally are able to in order to push onward to victory. Well, football has gotten smarter over the years for the casual player with the likes of the Wilson X Connected Football, but here we are with something that will let you pit your entire team against another — without dropping a bead of sweat. I am referring to the $149.95 Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game.

The Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game hails from Tudor Games, the very same company that invented the original all the way back in 1949. It will deliver a 36″ x 18″ field that is preferred by tournament players, and this updated model provides each side with the option of equipping its 11 included players with different bases. There will be speed “cleats” that enable backs or receivers to race down field, and strength cleats allow linemen to open holes. Where defense is concerned, the different bases grant pass-rushing speed to linemen and run-stopping power to linebackers. Each set comprises of 22 generic players, a couple of quarterbacks that run, pass, or kick, and two sets of uniform numbers to identify your favorite players, 70 NFL team end zone stickers, and all the relevant accessories (six felt footballs, two yard stick markers, and a ball marker) to get started right out of the box.

Proto Man Buster Replica has everything but cannot shoot

by Edwin

proto-man-blasterIf you think that Mega Man’s Mega Buster is the weapon of choice when it comes to getting rid of enemy robots and the ilk, think again. Mega Man is not the only name in town to own a buster, and here we are with the $79.99 Proto Man Buster Replica. Yes, I know, the name of it gives the game away right from the get go, but that is no reason to get upset. It is not as though other Mega Man Buster options in the market will actually create a hole in the wall when fired.

What about the Proto Man Buster Replica? Do not be surprised, but it is actually a full-sized replica of Proto Man’s plasma arm cannon, sporting two trigger-activated, light and sound effects: with one single shot while the other being a charged shot. Certainly you can put your imagination to good use with this, and to make things all the more realistic, the Proto Man Buster Replica comes with power up and down light/sound effects. Before someone brushes you off for purchasing a fake product, do be proud that this is an officially-licensed Capcom product and can fit either left or right hands. Powered by a trio of AA batteries, if you are going to spend plenty of time fooling around with this during Halloween, it would be in your best interest to rely on rechargeable batteries.

Webcaster Gun turns you into a Spiderman

by Edwin

webcaster-gunWhen you were growing up, or even if you are an adult now, just which particular superhero do you wish to be? If you have answered Spiderman, did you ever willingly get bitten by a spider, hoping that it has been irradiated enough so that you gain Peter Parker’s arachnid powers? Unfortunately, the world does not work this way, and rather than come up with your own web shooters, you might want to consider picking up the Webcaster Gun.

The Webcaster Gun is the perfect tool to spruce up any Halloween party as the season comes upon us again. It will be able to spray 1.5 pounds of webbing in an hour, and will hook up to most shop vacuums without missing a beat. This innovative product allows you to decorate inside and out with cobwebs, and is perfect for just about anyone with a love of Halloween or spooky parties. The refill packs will include 20 sticks, and the Webcaster ships with 1 stick to help you get started right out of the box.

Warcraft – Horde Strongbox shows off which faction you support

by Edwin

warcraft_faction_bundle_horde_chestSo, you happen to grow up on a steady diet of Blizzard Entertainment’s digital fare, and have thoroughly enjoyed the likes of franchises such as Diablo, Starcraft and of course, Warcraft. For those Warcraft fans out there, if you are one who is for the Horde, then you would do well to adorn your home with the $39.99 Warcraft – Horde Strongbox. After all, this is one limited edition chest of goodies that will celebrate your Warcraft faction, with only 2,500 of these produced per faction as a ThinkGeek creation and exclusive.

It will come with its fair share of real-world loot, allowing you to drink your favorite hot beverage (cold ones will do just fine as well) for the Horde, or perhaps to swipe your badge for the Horde, and to seal all of the envelopes with a classy Crush Your Enemies wax seal — kisses not required. The 12 oz. Horde mug, a snap-closure Horde wristguard that measures 17″ long, a repeat-print lanyard with quick-release clip and swivel clip, a two-sided metal keychain with split ring, a huge “Crush Your Enemies” wax seal stamp and one stick of red sealing wax will make up the Warcraft – Horde Strongbox.

Brick Yourself by entering the world of Lego

by Edwin

brick-yourselfIf you have been scratching your head wondering what you would like to get for your girlfriend or wife during her upcoming birthday (or any other special occasion for that matter), perhaps it might be best to look away from jewelry shops and the like. How about taking the road less traveled? I am referring to a more personalized gift, such as the £29.99 Brick Yourself. All that you need to do is to provide some background information such as facts, likes, hobbies and typical outfit suggestions, and then a miniature toy version of that description will be worked on.

Not only that, the Brick Yourself idea will arrive framed with an accompanying quote of your choice. It will do away with that overly complicated human body for a simple yellow one, and everyone will look the same in terms of the body shape and size, so anyone who is way too gangly thin or obese might want to give this a miss. As for the text underneath, you can add up to two lines of text with 30 characters on each. Needless to say, you will be able to take it out and play with it when you want to with other Lego bits and pieces.

NeoBear AR Globe is a children’s toy that is set for an international release

by Edwin

neobearChildren these days have a wealth of toys to choose from, where they are able to enjoy the different kinds of gaming options unlike our younger days where the only console to pick from was the Atari 2600, and most of the time we would make good use of our imagination as opposed to forming suggestions for other people’s imaginations like today. Still, Augmented Reality (AR) is an area that is fast expanding into everyday life like vacuum cleaners, so it is not surprising at all that AR will also target children and their toys. NeoBear is all set to release the AR Globe, an AR toy for the little ones some time later this month.
