Here at Dad Does we are no strangers to remote control (RC) toys. In addition to writing endless reviews of RC planes, cars and helicopters, we actually have an entire playlist on YouTube just for RC toys. Okay, I just read that last statement and that is pretty sad, clearly we need to get a life, or a hobby or a pet… Wait, a pet, that’s it. No not a pet you actually need to feed and take care of, remember we have RC toys to play, no we will go with Botti, the brand new remote controlled pet!
Say Hello to Bopsy-Bot Our New Pet Botti
As grizzled veterans of all things RC toys, not much surprises us anymore, but Botti, well it cast a spell on us! The Botti bots from Blip Toys are sort of like a mix of Muppets, Gremlins, plush toys and a super cool RC car. Why are we even trying to describe the Botti, you need to see our new pet, Bopsy-Bot, to appreciate the fun of Botti -

Kids like planes that can fit in your pocket and high flying foam rockets. Kids like darts that go faster and high powered water blasters. No, we are not writing the next great children’s book, we are simply describing the new Zoom Zooka from Zing Toys. The Zoom Zooka is a 4-In-1 blaster that can fire foam planes, rockets and darts. An air blaster that fires different foam projectiles is fine, but not groundbreaking. No, what makes the Zoom Zooka super cool is the 4th feature, the ability to work as a high powered water blaster as well!

Spring has sprung! Summer is right around the corner. The days are getting longer…and if the kids don’t get out of the house soon, our tempers will be getting shorter. Enough playing video games and hacking away at tablets, it is time to get the kids playing outside. Do the kids need a little [...]
As any parent of young kids can tell you, the idea of a fun family bike ride is often just that…an idea. Sure, in concept, you all go out, have a beautiful ride and enjoy the day. In reality, the 5 year old can’t keep up on his training wheels, so you end up walking [...]

Mother’s Day is like a big fat pitch, right over the center of the plate, waiting for a Dad Blogger to smash it out of Hallmark park.

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to be the third wheel. The Urban Dictionary defines Third Wheel as “One who deters the socialization of a couple, perhaps when being invited out of pitty or through a feeling of duty“. Yikes, nothing good could possible come from a third wheel…unless…what if you added that third wheel [...]
