• LEGO Bringing Ghostbusters to Life this June

    LEGO Bringing Ghostbusters to Life this June

    Somehow I rationalize this story as related to tech; perhaps it’s my inner-child making its way out… If you are a fan of Ghostbusters (and honestly, who isn’t?), then you’ll be happy to know that LEGO has come up with an official set just for you. With the LEGO Movie still number one at the box office, the company is tapping historical classics with LEGO Ghostbusters, set to release in June for $50. The set will include a new and improved Ecto01 model, with the four mini-busters alongside. The real story here is how exactly LEGO plans on recreating Slime–but for that answer, you’ll have to wait until I pick up the set in June…for my son, of course.

  • Swann Security Tickles our Fancy with the New Bubble Bomber RC Heli

    Swann Security Tickles our Fancy with the New Bubble Bomber RC Heli

    While the rest of the world knows Swann for its excellent line of home security and surveillance products, those of us with maturity issues like to think of Swann Security as the company that puts out all of those cool RC helicopters. Today. my not-so-inner child is all smiles, as Swann has introduced its latest flyer…and this one drops bubble bombs!! You read that right. The appropriately named Bubble Bomber may look like your average mini RC copter, but once airborne, the Bubble Bomber is actually able to drop “bubble bombs” with a mere flick of its 2.4GHz wireless remote, thanks to an on-board bubble reservoir. As far as the rest of the copter, Swann’s built-in gyro should keep the BB steady, and the rechargeable Lipo battery is good for an impressive 7 minutes of continuous flying. We’ll have our full review (all in the name of science, of course) once […]

  • New Monopoly For Kids Ends “Neverending Games”

    New Monopoly For Kids Ends “Neverending Games”

    Hasbro has launched a brand new Monopoly game with one really distinct feature: It can be played in under 30 minutes. The newly launched children’s version uses a “first-past-the-post” system–which means a player can win by simply collecting a certain number of assets, as opposed to forcing other players into bankruptcy. While Monopoly purists may  balk at the new version of the game, anyone who has ever been a part of an endless game of Monopoly with their children is sure to be cheering right now. Hasbro vice president of marketing Jonathan Berkowitz says the new Monopoly was a result of feedback from parents and children, who say “they want a quick in-and-out, frictionless gaming experience.” We have 2 words for you Hasbro: Thank you.
