  • Pokéball Collection Candy Cases From Bandai

    Pokéball Collection Candy Cases From Bandai

    When I was a little kid I was obsessed with cartoon objects existing in the real world—big wedges of Swiss cheese were a particular fixation.  And I still have a soft spot for stuff like the new Pokéball collection of candy cases from Bandai, thanks to its strong attention to detail in bringing the Pokémon equipment […]

  • Tamagotchi: Original 90s Virtual Pet Gets Re-Release (Video)

    Tamagotchi: Original 90s Virtual Pet Gets Re-Release (Video)

    One of the signature items of any 90s kid ensemble is the Tamagotchi, the digital pet that fit in your pocket and provided a pleasant distraction from schoolwork in the days before 24/7 social media contact with friends and enemies. Now, the original 90s model from Bandai is reportedly coming back, just like Seinfeld, The […]

    Nimuno Loops: Tape That Can Make Anything LEGO Compatible

    It’s possible, if unlikely, that you have one or two prized possessions that are not LEGO related. This can be a drag when you try to incorporate your all-consuming love of LEGO building bricks into, say, your passion for framed Godzilla movie posters or plush Nintendo toys. But now, there’s Nimuno Loops. Nimuno Loops is […]

  • ‘Hot Wheels Nightmare’ Shows a Hot Wheels Car’s POV (Video)

    ‘Hot Wheels Nightmare’ Shows a Hot Wheels Car’s POV (Video)

    Camera technology has finally advanced to the point of being able to capture what it would actually feel like to sit behind the wheel of a Hot Wheels car as it races along its track. But for 5MadMovieMakers, the YouTube channel behind Hot Wheels Nightmare, that wasn’t quite enough, so they added some extra visual […]

  • ‘Seinfeld’ Set Replica: The Model About Nothing

    ‘Seinfeld’ Set Replica: The Model About Nothing

    I’m a pretty big fan of Seinfeld, but I admit I don’t really have a clue what the toy/collectible scene out there is like with regards to the show. So when I say that the product descriptively known as the Seinfeld Set Replica must be the top of the line, take it with the proverbial […]

    The Magic iPod: Create Your Own Early 2000s Mashups

    Everyone knows that the early 2000s was a golden age for popular music. A new website lets you mash up the hits from that glorious era just like Girl Talk does, but without any of the technical expertise those mashups usually require. It’s called The Magic iPod. Also like Girl Talk, The Magic iPod specializes […]

  • Brick Burger: LEGO-Shaped Burgers, No Assembly Required

    Brick Burger: LEGO-Shaped Burgers, No Assembly Required

    LEGO building bricks are bright, colorful, and adaptable to almost any mode of creative play, but their harsh angles and sharp points make them kind of unappetizing, even as building toys go. Still, you can now come as close as one healthily can to eating LEGO bricks at a burger joint in the Philippines called Brick […]

  • 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 […]

  • The Xbox Puzzle Solved by FLEB (Video)

    The Xbox Puzzle Solved by FLEB (Video)

    Buckle up folks, because this is going to get confusing. First things first, despite what you may have reasonably assumed by the title, The Xbox Puzzle has nothing to do with the Microsoft video game console of the same name. Actually, it’s an extremely complex puzzle box, the solution to which was recently posted by […]

  • LEGO Nerf Maverick REV-6: A Functional Nerf Gun Made From LEGO (Video)

    LEGO Nerf Maverick REV-6: A Functional Nerf Gun Made From LEGO (Video)

    LEGO and Nerf, at first glance anyway, would seem to be fairly polar from one another thematically. LEGO is based on the creativity and imagination of building, while Nerf is all about pretending to kill your little brother with low-speed soft projectiles. The man behind Astonishing Studios has gone and combined them, though, and the […]
