Doing toy reviews can be tough, soul searching work. Sure, the idea of playing with toys all day probably sounds like fun to you, but every once in a while you run into a toy like the Razor Power Rider 360. The Power Rider 360 has me resenting the fact that I wasn’t born 8 years ago. I mean I thought I had a good childhood, but really how could I have, since this crazy fun electric 360 degree spinning ride on did not exist when I was a kid. Maybe I’m living a lie…you see how tough this work can be?
Okay, I did my deep breathing and I’m back now. While the Razor PowerRider 360 will make you wish you were a kid again, I’m assuming you probably have a few kids of your own running around who might be interested in a spinning, electric ride-on.

As parents, we all have precious kids who do incredibly talented and cute things. When our kids do said things, we all grab our iPhones and start shooting video. While iPhones, iPads and Android devices are great for capturing the video of the moment, they don’t do a great job of capturing the sounds of the moment.
Today we see if we can fix this problem with the iRig Mic from IK Multimedia. The iRig Mic is a professional quality handheld microphone that attaches to your iOS or Android device. Please watch our video review of the iRig Mic from IK Multimedia -
The iRig Mic, Made For Vocalist…And What Kid Isn’t Vocal?
Yeah, I am sure your dog or cat is very cute. Groover may have a great personality as well, but come on, for the most part he just sits there waiting for you to drop your food. On the other hand, MiP from WowWee toys – now that is a friend with some personality. MiP is the robot friend that can dance, speak, listen, change moods, battle, play games, roam freely, oh and did we mention that he does all this while balancing on two wheels? Put Groover on roller skates, make him stand on his hind legs and see how long he lasts!
Meet MiP Your New Robot Friend
We got our first look at MiP at CES 2014. We saw an impressive demo of MiP balancing, dancing and playing games – but it was just a demo. We have now had the chance to spend some time with a production model of MiP. Please watch our full video review of MiP The Self Balancing Robot -
As parents we have all broken into a cold sweat when we take the kids into a store filled with fragile gifts and we see the dreaded sign – “If You Break It, You Buy It!” I always found that policy a little strong and didn’t convey the best customer service. Now, General Mills has [...]
Disclosure: I received the Honeywell Thermostat in exchange for posting an honest review. I received no other compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It was bound to happen. My smartphone is clearly smarter than me. My kids, light years smarter than me. My cat, well he does get me to get up and [...]
When it comes to doing tricks and performing on a scooter, not everyone is equal. First and foremost, you need the skills to be able to perform and master the moves. In addition, if you are going to be the Chosen One, the one who rises to the top, you will also need the right [...]
This past weekend the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie opened in the US. As any parent can tell you, if there is a new super hero movie, you can bet the house that there will also be new super hero toys! Yep, sure enough, Hasbro has released some new Captain America toys…this [...]
The snow is finally melting, the sun is shining, people are slowing coming out of their shelters, the Arctic air is finally moving back to…well the Arctic I suppose. Yes, we are so excited for it to be prime Hurricane weather! No, not THAT type of hurricane, we are talking about the Interactive Toy Concepts [...]
Ivory soap is 99.44% pure. I love soap as much as the next guy, but if tomorrow they made it 99.54% pure I really doubt I wold notice the difference. On the other hand, when BlackBerry turns things up a tenth of a notch, you can absolutely tell the difference! A few weeks ago we [...]
There are many things that are in short supply in this world. Astatine (Google it), drinkable water and a good slice of pizza outside NYC immediately come to mind. What probably does not come to mind are computer tablets. It seems like everyday a new tablet is released and this is because…well, pretty much every [...]
