When it comes to helping your little one learn the ways of this world – at least from the academic point of view, there are many different methods as well as routes that one is able to take. However, since we live in an extremely technologically sophisticated environment, it might be prudent to go with the times – and this is where the $99.95 Illuminated Learning Blocks come in handy. These happen to be award winning learning blocks, where they will actually boast of the ability to light up as well as teach toddlers about shapes and colors, while being relevant to the older children as well when it comes to the likes of reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Each purchase of the Illuminated Learning Blocks will comprise of a pegboard as well as three dozen 1″ blocks that will emit a colorful glow or mesmerizing flash whenever it is plugged into the board or another block. There will be a dozen displays of shapes, numbers, and basic mathematical signs; while there will be another that shows off the letters of the alphabet; and the final dozen will come emblazoned with simple words such as “red”, “dog”, and “big”. Toddlers are able to stack up these blocks into towers before “graduating” to counting and reciting their ABCs, whereas older children will have the chance to compose sentences, practice their times tables, or even solve basic equations. Each set can be used to play 39 different games,tic-tac-toe and checkers included, and the board itself functions as a storage container for added functionality. The Illuminated Learning Blocks will be powered by a trio of AA batteries.

When it comes to being fun and imaginative, there is no need to pile on the work. After all, wasn’t it Jack who ended up being a dull boy after having nothing else to do but work? Having said that, too much play on the other end of the extreme is not too good, either. The $29.99 Hoverkraft Levitating Construction Challenge offers not only a good learning experience, it is also a futuristic building and balancing game.
You will be able to play with it alone – which makes it great for those with just one child in the family, and it is also good for two players – hence siblings will have yet another avenue to exhibit their rivalry. Regardless, just make sure that the child(ren) are aged 8 and above. This particular purchase would update and old-school building game by providing a twist, as players take turns to stack pieces on a platform. The catch is, this particular platform would levitate via magnetic repulsion, and the winner would be the last player to place a block without causing the platform to tumble. Not only that, this is a fast game – better than Candy Crush, as it takes anywhere from 30 seconds, all the way to 5 minutes.
Games with an updated twist like Space Invaders Jenga are always well worth the effort to check it out.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, or so the saying goes. Well, since we are familiar with that particular saying, when was the last time you actually dropped by a store in order to pick up a toy for your beloved son or daughter? While your children have looked on at you in envy with your collection of Nerf guns and Nerf sessions with your mates, how about giving them some shooting toys of their own? Enter the $19.99 Spider Glove Launcher, which is a wristband that will be able to hold up to a quartet of darts for quick reloading.
This particular Spider Glove Launcher would feature a squeeze and fire mechanism, and adults who wished that they too, could get in on the fun will need to give it a pass, since this particular model is strictly meant for kids only. It is cool in its own right, and each time the wearer’s hand squeezes into a fist, the dart will fire away. It does not require any kind of battery to run – which is a good thing for our earth and landfills, while it is accompanied by half a dozen 6 foam darts (3 suction cup tipped, 3 hook-and-loop tipped). Now, if only they could come up with an adult sized version…

I am quite sure that many of us are already looking forward to what the next installment of Star Wars would be able to offer in the near future, and it is not a coincidence at all for a slew of Star Wars merchandise being pushed out at the moment to make sure that you are subtly being drawn into the hype of the space opera. Star Wars is definitely one franchise that does not look as though it can be fully milked, even in the coming generations, and one of the most endearing aspects of it would be the classic lightsaber battles. How about getting a lightsaber of your own without having to actually find the crystal bits and build it yourself? That is made possible thanks to the $169.99 Star Wars Force FX Removable Blade Lightsaber.
The Star Wars Force FX Removable Blade Lightsabers are touted to be the most perfect lightsaber toy to date, where the blade is easily and quickly removed in order to change from a fighting stance to being placed on your belt – taking just a few seconds for that to happen. Apart from that, you can also save your saliva since it can be ignited using authentic power up/down effects, which will also be further accompanied by motion-activated sound effects, now how about that? Each purchase is an authentic lightsaber that has been licensed by LucasFilm, so purchase it without any worries.

Sure, children these days do have a whole lot more choices than we adults did much earlier on in our lives when it comes to entertaining themselves, taking into consideration the sheer number of TV channels that are available (and yet we still hear the age old complaint of “there’s nothing to watch on TV!”), not to mention the amount of video game titles that are in circulation at the moment. Getting them to engage in a little bit of outdoor activity could prove to be rather difficult, but what if you had the assistance of the $59.95 Long Range Laser Blaster Set?
The Long Range Laser Blaster Set happens to be a laser tag set which enables a couple of players to target one another from a distance of up to 100’ away. Each blaster would be able to send pulses of harmless infrared light which can be detected by the opposing player’s visor, and in turn will emit flashing LEDs to indicate nearby opponents, as well as incoming fire from 360 degrees. There is a long-range mode which enables players to engage each other up to the maximum range, where it will require a manual “reload” between shots. A single push of a button would turn the barrel’s bottom into a vertical forward grip, letting you engage in some Rambo-style rapid fire mode albeit at a reduced range. Seems to be the perfect gift to help your young ones get some fresh air!

It does not take too much to capture the attention of a young child, and all you need would be to have something cute, and they are good to go. For those who are still running around while adoring you as their all in all, there is nothing quite like having a butterfly or ladybird show off the cuter side of them, as it appeals to just about anyone. The $149.95 Plush Buddy Bouncer is one such unique offering that sports a plush cover that has been shaped like a ladybug or racecar, being a mini trampoline that will be able to deliver countless hours of indoor exercise and entertainment for the little ones – perfect whenever the weather is foul on the outside.
This smiling toy would be extremely inviting for young trampolinists to help them burn off some energy as they bounce and jump around, making it a whole lot easier to tuck them in at the end of a long day. Of course, with first time parents, there will also be an element of risk, but fret not as the Plush Buddy Bouncer will sport a practical design that ensures safety. It will also feature a sturdy steel frame that will not rock or shake, while the 30 springs come completely covered so that one’s foot will not be able to slip through, and the platform itself stands only 81/2″ off the ground. The two big-eyed buddies can be detached to become cuddly pillows, so that you remove the rest of the fabric exterior for washing. Some assembly is required, so dads who aren’t good with DIY, please call the Avengers!

When it comes to the TV series Doctor Who, you can be sure that you will run into fans of all different age groups as well as gender, and that does not matter. The more, the merrier, but when it comes to actually identifying the different kinds of Doctor Who collectibles that will be able to resonate with you, that can be a little bit more tricky. Case in point, if the little princess in your home too, has picked up the nuances of Doctor Who and would like to parade her passion for this particular TV series, what can you get here that suits her age? Enter the $15.99 TARDIS Light-Up Headband of course.
Wearing this would obviously turn her into a TARDIS with an attitude, as it arrives in the form of an adorable light up headband. Not only that, there is also an on-off switch that is located on the side of the lamp housing to help you get started, and it will be powered by a pair of LR41 batteries. You can rest assured in the knowledge that this is an officially licensed Doctor Who merchandise, allowing you to shake off accusations of purchasing bootleg products with consummate ease. This blue headband comes with a smooth underside, and it is made out of plastic. This is definitely one of the more docile TARDIS collectible that we have come across.

Our brain is pretty much like a puzzle – the more we make use of it, the more efficient it becomes as we hone the thought process to sharpen the dull parts. Having said that, with all of the passive entertainment that one goes through each day in this day and age through the movies and at home in front of the TV, how about playing a more pro-active role instead? This is where the $29.99 Gravity Maze comes in handy, being one of the more recent puzzle games to make an appearance.
While Gravity Maze happens to be meant for just a single player only, there is also the fun factor as one approaches the challenges as a team. Meant for those aged eight and above, the Gravity Maze will require one to construct a path which will be able to carry a marble from the start position all the way to the target tower. Here is a tip – try not to lose your marbles or tear your hair out along the way, especially when you have not been using your grey matter that seriously for way too many years already. This puzzle game will target children aged 8 and above, where it will teach them the physics of the real world within the real world itself, and there are 60 different puzzle cards to choose from that deliver escalating difficulty levels.

Them crazy Rabbids are bad enough (in a good way) in the world of video games, but to see it make its way into some sort of real life device? That is surely nuts to say the least, but for fans of the cuckoo gaming character, you would definitely not hesitate too much about picking up the $21.99 Rabbids Super Plunger Sound Blaster.
There are three modes for you to choose from and drive the rest of your friends and colleagues crazy – Bwaaah, Fart, and Prank. With this, as long as there is enough battery power within, you will be able to fire off crazy Rabbid sounds with this sound effects blaster. After all, Rabbids are well known to make funny noises, so you might as well join in on the craziness at the moment without having to wait until March. The Bwaaah Mode will trigger regular sound effects, while Fart Mode is pretty much self explanatory (you might want to “counter” this with the Fart Detector though). In Prank Mode, you will hold the trigger down for 5 seconds, before you place the Rabbids Super Plunger Sound Blaster in a strategic location. 20 seconds later, the Blaster will then begin to play random Rabbids sounds.

Forget about getting hold of a simulator when it comes to driving a vehicle around – the graphics might be super realistic and the sound pounds out from various channels to deliver the most authentic experience possible, but nothing is still able to beat the real thing. If you think that your little one has the potential to actually make it big on the race tracks in the future, then you might want to consider keeping a keen eye out for the $269.95 All Terrain Buggy Racer.
This All Terrain Buggy Racer is touted to get the adrenaline pumping, although there will not be any kind of major thrills and spills that we see on the TV during a live race telecast. In fact, it is a pedal racer that will offer young drivers a taste of off-roading while they remain within the safe confines of your neighborhood. Thanks to Kettler, Germany’s premier maker of ride-on vehicles, the All Terrain Buggy Racer will feature a durable powder-coated tubular steel frame as well as rubber-clad plastic tires which will enable racers to pedal up and down mild grades or across a lawn or beach. The buggy ensures the driver remains just 12″ off the ground, resulting in a low center of gravity so that there will be better stability to handle them treacherous hairpin turns.
