We’ve been waiting months to bring home Disney’s latest animated feature (and third highest grossing ever!) Big Hero 6. It’s a refreshing change from Frozen for the dude Disney fans out there… but don’t get me wrong, boys and girls thoroughly enjoy Baymax and his cohorts. But some of us take comfort in the lack of songs.
Big Hero 6 is a great superhero tale about a boy and his robot, who team up with his four friends to defeat a mysterious supervillain. You’ll fall in love immediately with Baymax, our unconventional healthcare companion. Click below for my review.
K’Nex is producing some great sets and nabbing some hot licenses. I stopped by to see them because my son got the big 500 piece bucket for Christmas and loves playing with it frequently.

Here check out the 3D version.
My six year old loves building and transforming these new Transformer Constructbots. The big feature here is you build and can customize your Transformer character, and then transform it without having to take it apart. You can mix and match pieces to make your own creation, and then transform that. Check out our video. Also, these are all on sale right now at Toys R Us.
