My son had a great time with this set as well. We liked how the game play is similar to the other Angry Birds (and Angry Birds Star Wars) games by Hasbro, but introduces something new with the launchers and cars.

It even has a convenient carry case. Click below to listen to me discuss this set with Magic 106.5 FM‘s Jack Logar, and see my full review. Read the rest of this entry »

My favorite booth, and often my very first Toy Fair appointment is at the Playmobil booth. I am a huge playmobil collector, and getting to see all the new stuff in person is my biggest thrill, plus the life-sized display figures are nice… we all joke but it’s true, after Playmobil’s appointment, I could probably go home. I’m spent.
The folks at playmobil were pretty glad to see me. I can’t take all the credit for their rising sales this past year, however I’ve been spreading the good word that playmobil is made in Germany, not China, for years, and now it’s paying off in droves.

In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day we put together this demo of how to make a simple pirate ship (perfect for the little scallywags) out of a refrigerator box. We’ve long been fans of Mr. McGroovey’s pirate ship plans (with box rivets), but we needed something we could build with one refrigerator box (get one for free from a local large appliance store) and a 12 pack of beer. So here is our streamlined “dinghy. ARRRRRRR BABY!
