We have been posting tons of videos of the cool toys we saw at Toy Fair. Videos are great for capturing things that fly, smash, crash, shoot and explode. The thing is, Toy Fair is filled with plenty of cool games, puzzles and toys that don’t fly around…but still are insanely fun. So, today we shine the spotlight of fun on battery free toys and games that are coming in 2014.
Toss the batteries, survive a blackout and have some fun…
The Magic School Bus Math Explosion
How in the world do you make math fun? By adding explosions of course! You compete to get the most math facts right…for one simple reason…so you can add your baking soda to the vinegar volcano and make it explode. Okay, maybe there are other reasons why you might want to actually learn your math facts, but still, who doesn’t love a baking soda and vinegar reaction?
Last week we posted a video recap of some of the cool toys we saw on display at Toy Fair 2014. As it has now been nearly a week since that post, the world is clearly ready for a sequel! Here we provide more videos of some of the cooler toys we saw being demoed at Toy Fair 2014. Of course most of these toys are still in prototype form, so only time will tell if they translate into winners for our precious little kids. Once the finished toys start to hit the market we will of course do full reviews of the toys because, really, who wouldn’t want to play with toys all day?
Toy Fair 2014 in New York City was a great event…except for the food and drinks. Look, I know soda is bad for me and is rotting away my teeth, filling my body with empty calories and somehow responsible for global warming. So I feel bad enough when I enjoy my sweet, caffeine laced treat – but to pay $5 for my evil swill?? That is just some crazy Javits Center cruelty. Don’t get me started on the $5 slice of pizza…

I have just finished walking (okay, by day three it was more like half-dead wandering) the entire International Toy Fair in New York City. Over 7 football fields of show space showcasing over 150,000 toys, games and both grumpy and happy cats. Over 150,000 toys and games under one roof. I had representative after [...]
Can I find new love on Valentine’s Day? Is bigger really better? Is being able to go for days on end without needing a break to recharge, really the key to a successful relationship? Today, Valentine’s Day, I come clean and make a major announcement. For the past 7 days I have been unfaithful [...]
Has it really come to this? Are college students now so lazy that the idea of washing their sheets, after they have soiled them, really too much of an effort? Is the solution to spilling beer in your bed, ripping off a layer of your sheets and throwing it away? Is peel away underwear next? [...]
As a responsible Dad, I have to be prepared for any family emergencies that come my way. Of course I have the First Aid kit in the car and an escape ladder in the closet in case there is a fire, but what if there is a real emergency? You might want to be [...]
