Power House – Learning to “Go Green” before your teens

In our environmentally conscious society we need to start teaching kids the importance of doing their own part to ease the damage we’ve wrought upon ourselves and them. What better way to do that than make the lesson into a fun project you could all share?


Buy Your Kids a Porsche…Bobsled

It’s that time of year, the snow is coming and there’s no stopping it. That is, unless you live in some year round warm little place of heavenly sunshine. For adults the snow can be burdening and troublesome, but for kids it’s well… a winter wonderland.

The people of Porsche have designed a new sledge that’s good for kids and class. The Porshe Kinderbob comes with a silver base and red details. You’ll get handbars for a safe grip, damping, metal runners and even a horn! Those others kids with their wimpy plastic roll up sleds better watch out!


Tiny Toys Shopping Guide – Nightmare Before Christmas Little Taps and ChoroQ Qsteer R/C Racer

I’m not sure what the worlds obsession is with picturing things next to coins. I get that’s small when you use words like little, mini, tiny and micro… no visual necessary, but that’s just me. Anyway, here are two tiny toys that are just a bit bigger than a quarter, enjoy.

First up we have Jack from the Nightmare Before Christmas, now he’s not the only character this toy comes in but with the season so close he’s the featured toy right now. This Little Taps toy will sing and dance to songs from the show and should come across any other Little Taps they all interconnect and will sing and dance together. You can pick up Jack for just $14.99.


Mini Weapons – Miniature Bazooka and Samurai Weapons

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again: Girls love miniature things. However, this is one mini set I’d stay away from when picking out something for your sweetie, unless your sweetie is me, cause I think these are great!

If you love weapons and Halo 3 just isn’t enough of a fix for you, you might stop buy ThinkGeek and pick up one or both of these miniature weapons sets. The bazooka sets are a 1/6th scale replicas of a Panzer Faust3, RPG-7, FIM-43, M20A1, and SA-18. Each set ($8.99) only lets you pick out two, so you may end up with doubles of one when you buy the complete series. Each bazooka comes with its own stand for maximum display-ability.


Spy pen comes with Shredder

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to a secret message visible only by ultra violet light and then after words needed get rid of the evidence, but there wasn’t a convenient way to fully destroy said evidence so you had to eat it instead? Me too, I hate it when that happens. Anyway, now there is a pen that can help all us out in those hard times.


Hello Kitty – Has the Cat Gone too Far?

I never gave Hello Kitty much thought before today, but after what I’ve seen I must admit I’m a little afraid. Hello Kitty is slowly but surely taking over the world.

It started innocently enough, I’m sure, with DVD’s, clothes, etc… and even this item, the Hello Kitty Bicycle Tires, aren’t that bad. They have the cutesy little kitten’s face imprinted in the tread so wherever you go, Hello Kitty goes too. You can buy them for $20-$25 a piece. To be honest, I passed this item up my first time through. It was the next item that really caught my attention.


Dr. Who Gadgets – Sonic Screwdriver and R/C K9

I’m a big Dr. Who fan, so when I saw these items you can imagine my excitement. The Dr. Who R/C K9 and Sonic Screwdriver are the perfect gift for the Dr. Who buff in your life.

The R/C K9 Robot Dog is a throwback to the original series which came out in the 70’s. He was in a more recent episode so anyone who follows only the new series will recognize him. He speaks 7 different phrases and can move forwards and backwards and do turns. He also as an expendable Nose Blaster along with a few other tricks and surprises. K9 can be yours for just $59.99.


USB Toys – Homer Simpson Lamp and Hub

I don’t know anyone who can claim to be just “a Simpsons fan”, when it comes that family you’re either a fanatic or clueless. These two Simpsons themed USB toys are just the things to perk up your desk with the Springfield charm.


AntWorks Habitat

An ant farm is one of those childhood experiences that I never had, Sea Monkeys of course, but no ants. Lucky for me I now live next to a farm who introduced ants into their crop to keep other pests away and many of them find their way into my house. For those of you who are not as lucky as me there is the AntWorks.

Based on a NASA experiment this habitat makes ants cool in a way they never could be. It’s nutritious, yet homey, gel will satisfy all your ants needs, food and shelter. It comes complete with a LED illuminator and comes in blue or red. Each habitat comes with a magnifying glass, an ant catching/tunnel starting tool and an instruction booklet.


Electronic Bubble Wrap Keychain – just when you thought FedEx was Santa

If you, like me, have held on to the near-Christmas like event that getting something wrapped in bubble wrap is, well its just gotten that much better. Sure, the tactile feedback isn’t quite the same in an electronic version, but I have a feeling it will be equally pleasurable.

It’s also a bit of a stress reliever. Oh, and did I mention that you’ll have a new means of annoying those around you, but it will be right on your keychain? I love it.


The Exploding Piggy Bank

If you’re one that has a hard time saving those pennies this little bomb might help you out a bit. The bank isn’t just in the shape of a time bomb, it is one, and if you don’t pay up it explodes.


The Bog Monster to scare the piss out of your friends

Although it might be a little late for most to run out to the stores and snag a few more Halloween decorations before Wednesday, you could however snag them on discount the day after. For yet another cheap laugh get yourself one of these Bog Monsters.

The Bog Monster suction cups under the seat and inside the lid. Just don’t put one of these in the toilet during a drunken party, otherwise, you might notice the next day that your little monster smells a bit like urine.
