Like many other children of the 80’s who was a fan of Star Wars, I totally wanted to be Luke Skywalker. Sure, I liked the lightsaber, but what I really wanted to do was be able to levitate my brother out of my room when he was bothering me. We will never be Jedi, but Mattel is now shipping its cool Mindflex game that lets you levitate things with the power of your mind.
The Mindflex stuff is sure to be a big hit this holiday season, and at least for now Amazon has it in stock for $81. I am betting that as the holidays get closer we will see these things being sold on eBay for way more than they are actually worth.
The cool factor alone with this toy is enough to warrant the $81 asking price on Amazon. The game lets players compete in a mental marathon where they move a ball around various obstacles that can be reconfigured for different layouts at will. This is totally on my Christmas list.
