  • ‘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

    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)

    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 […]

  • Double Mountain Murder Mystery Town ‘Twin Peaks’ LEGO Set

    Double Mountain Murder Mystery Town ‘Twin Peaks’ LEGO Set

    David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, with its themes of sexual assault and lurking evil, may not seem like a natural fit for a LEGO playset, given that the building block toys are mostly marketed towards children and adults more interested in spaceships than surreal and disturbing moral inquiries. Citizen Brick is a LEGO customizer that exists […]

  • The Decision Coin: For Life’s Toughest Yes-or-No Questions

    The Decision Coin: For Life’s Toughest Yes-or-No Questions

    Should you stay or should you go now? In the field of binary decision making, that question can actually stand to be cut down to a much more efficient one: Should you stay? For yes-or-no questions like that, a coin flip is often called for, and The Decision Coin is made for just that purpose. […]
