  • ‘The Game of Life: Pets Edition’ Makes Pets Addition

    ‘The Game of Life: Pets Edition’ Makes Pets Addition

    I played a lot of The Game of Life as a kid, but today I mostly think of it as what I call “theoretical fun” along with Scrabble and Mad Libs. Still, the folks at Hasbro have updated the game for notoriously animal-loving millennials, and the result is called The Game of Life: Pets Edition. The Game of Life: Pets […]

  • ‘Music from The Transformers': Soundtrack Available for First Time

    ‘Music from The Transformers': Soundtrack Available for First Time

    It’s safe to say that the 1980s Transformers toy line has been a resounding success. There’ve been TV shows, movies, and toys, toys, toys, but for one reason or another there’s never been a proper soundtrack release for the music from the original TV series. So it’s pretty cool that Hasbro has announced a new Music […]

  • Monopoly Cheaters Edition Encourages Bad Behavior

    Monopoly Cheaters Edition Encourages Bad Behavior

    When classic board game Monopoly was developed back in the 1930s, it was intended as a not-so-subtle critique of capitalism during the Great Depression. But it’s 2018 now, and it’s more than time for that critique to have its barbs resharpened – and so, we now have the Monopoly Cheaters Edition. As anyone who’s ever played a game […]

    ‘Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters’ Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    Stretch Armstrong has been around for decades, but it’s been a while since anyone has heard from him. It seems he’s coming back to Netflix (an always popular way for half-forgotten characters to make their returns), but he’s now a teenaged superhero with a few superpowered teenaged friends. The name of the series is Stretch […]

  • ‘Transformers: The Last Knight': Second Trailer Arrives (Video)

    ‘Transformers: The Last Knight': Second Trailer Arrives (Video)

    It looks like Michael Bay is finally getting to make his Beyond Thunderdome, with a Transformers sequel that has a little kid for a main character. I know that because I just watched the new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight, which recently, uh, landed (?) online. Don’t worry, fans of Mark Wahlberg: He’s in […]

  • Nerf Nitro Blasters: Speed, Not Violence

    Nerf Nitro Blasters: Speed, Not Violence

    There are probably a lot of sensitive parents out there who would rather their children not play with Nerf guns on the grounds that they encourage a propensity towards violence with more destructive projectiles than foam darts. But now, even these sheltered children can enjoy the sensation of firing a Nerf product thanks to Nerf […]

    Vote Monopoly: Vote on the Next ‘Monopoly’ Tokens

    Shoe. Top Hat. Racecar. TURTLE?? That’s right, the folks at Hasbro are once again trying to update their classic board game Monopoly, and this time they need the help of us, the voting public. On a new website Vote Monopoly, you can select eight new possible tokens from a whole mansion full of them—and yes, […]

  • Wonky Mr. Potato Head: Limited Edition Toy Made to Fight Food Waste

    Wonky Mr. Potato Head: Limited Edition Toy Made to Fight Food Waste

    Mr. Potato Head has been the de facto spokesperson for eating your vegetables for generations now, even though some would classify potatoes as a starch. Now, Hasbro has joined forces with FareShare, a UK anti-hunger charity organization to create a limited edition Wonky Mr. Potato Head toy, in order to celebrate the sometimes-wasted misshapen vegetables […]

  • Nerf Fall 2016 Blasters: Unprecedented Foampower

    Nerf Fall 2016 Blasters: Unprecedented Foampower

    The people at Nerf, evidently galvanized by increasingly violent and dangerous conditions across the globe, are really kicking things into a new level for the upcoming fall season. The Nerf fall 2016 Blasters offer Nerf users the 70 mile-per-hour firing power of previous Nerf Blasters, but with a little added perk: Automatic rapid-fire. The Nerf […]
