Like any well built robot, Transformers are the toys that refuse to die. Transformers first started making their way under Christmas trees in 1984 and they are still going strong. New for 2013 are the Transformers Construct Bots from Hasbro. The line includes a number of different Transformers that you construct, transform and customize.
Please watch out video review of the Transformers Construct Bots -

Today, December 3rd, 2013, is #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a National Day of giving that counters Black Friday and Cyber Monday and shows that we can give as good as we get. Started in 2012 by the United Nations Foundation and the 92nd Street Y, #GivingTuesday is a call to action, for all of us to give to charities, non-profits and positive causes.
Charities Give Every Day Of The Year, We Are So Glad to Give A Little Back Today
Charities and non-profits are filled with incredible people who are giving so much, every single day, to make the world a better place. We were so excited to work with Lenovo this year to find a local charity and give something back to them for a change. While local charities have no shortage of incredibly dedicated and motivated workers and volunteers, many local charities just don’t have the budget to go out and buy all the latest tablets, technologies and gadgets. For all these reasons, we were thrilled to donate a Lenovo Yoga Tablet to the Cancer Connection in Northampton, MA.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fine if you are looking to get a deal on some gifts for the holiday. The thing is, while 30-50% off is nice, we are much more into 100% off. Just has a much better ring to it. Tack on helping people in need and link it up with #GivingTuesday and now we have something to get excited about.
Tablets are taking over the world, resistance is futile. Tablets provide an easy way for us Dads and Moms to read, research, play and create…that is, if we could actually pry our tablet out of the kid’s hands. The love affair kids have with tablets provides all types of challenges for us parents. How do [...]
Really, when you get right down to it, what do you want out of your blaster? Ask any 9 year old and he will tell you, “you need speed and distance.” The problem is, blasters are usually built to favor one attribute – either speed OR distance. Not anymore. The new Nerf N-Strike Elite RapidStrike [...]
Let’s be honest for a second. Ever since the release of the first iPad, there has been very little in the way of innovation in the tablet world. Yes, they absolutely have gotten thinner, lighter and faster – but in terms of form, they are all just flat rectangular slates. Tablets today generally look the [...]
We just can not get enough of the toys! A few days ago we started with our Guide To The Top Toys of 2013, but it was getting so long we need to break it into two parts. Here is Part 2 of Our Top Toys of 2013 Guide, but even this is not really [...]
By Noelle, Librarian Extraordinaire We already know how terrific HEXBUGs are. How much fun it is to build the tracks into different configurations, have them amble up ramps and ride down ziplines. But the first version of Nano bugs pales beside HexBugs Nano V2. We knew they were coming, but when HEXBUG sent us a [...]
Man, November came up on us quick. We basically spend the whole year doing real world product reviews and toy reviews, yet we still have more to do. Still, it looks like our petition to move Christmas to January 25th is not getting many signatures, so I guess we better get this Guide to The [...]
When I was a kid, I was told that flying cars and robots would be common by the time I was grown up. I never liked the idea of growing-up, but I figured I would at least have my robot by my side, driving my flying car, while I complained about something. Well, turns out [...]
