Growing up, I wasn’t into RC cars. I actually didn’t like any toys that needed batteries, because it seemed they weren’t fun without batteries, and it seemed that batteries died a lot. Anyway, now that I’m reviewing toys all the time, I get to try out some sweet Remote Control toys.  Now some of the things I get most excited about at Toy Fair are the sweet RC vehicles.

Just a few days after we learned we were pregnant, I wanted to get a “baby raising 101” type book. However I didn’t like the look or tone of the common fatherhood books. Part of my macho side wanted a “manly” book. I eat bacon dammit. I love King Kong and 300, I drink beer, and I and I won’t give it all up for flowers and baby ducks because I’m a daddy.

I’m a big fan of playmobil. Most recently, I reviewed the entire playmobil Roman theme which is hitting stores now.
