The Sesame Street PAL (play and learning) system uses peoples existing tablets (such as iPads) and turns them into a hands on learning experience. Designed for toddlers and young children, its interactive format helps you to educate and entertain your kids.

Made by Hasbro along with Sesame Workshop (a non-profit educational organization) it will be launched along side a whole new range of Sesame Street products. The PAL system features a case, which the tablet can be inserted into making it safe and fun. Simply buy the case and download the app and then let your children explore a world full of exciting and informative videos and games.

 

Who would buy the Sesame Street PAL?

The new Sesame Street PAL is aimed at young children and pre-schoolers so would be a great buy for anyone with young children. If you want to give them something that helps them to learn while they explore and play.

Things we like about the Sesame Street PAL

Its safety case to enclose the tablet is great for protecting your tablet, with rubber-protected corners and a stand. It can also be used to hide the menu button so your child can’t acidently get onto other apps or programs. There are also two different cases you can buy depending on which tablet you have.

Things we don’t like about the Sesame Street PAL

Due to the fact that it’s not yet been released, it’s hard to say what the individual features are like. One downside so far, is the fact that all the accessories, which make the games more interactive, are all sold separately. The other, is that it only works with a tablet or iPad, so if you don’t own one you can’t use the system. Also the app is only available on android and iOS.

Guarantee?

Again, due to the fact it’s still not on sale it’s unknown at this time what the guarantee will be on the PAL system.

Is the Sesame Street PAL worth the money?

When it comes to your child’s education this is a great tool to helping them learn while they play. It’s also a great way just to keep them occupied if you have something like a long car journey as the PAL and your tablet are portable.

Where can I buy the Sesame Street PAL?

The PAL will be available on leading online stores, such as Amazon.com. It will also be available in most major children’s toy stores.

Customer reviews of the Sesame Street PAL

Since it has not yet been released there are no reviews from people who have tried the Sesame Street PAL. That being said however there are lots of people talking about the PAL, and other new Hasbro Sesame Street collections, and they are eagerly awaiting their arrival.

Watch our video review here:

Sesame Street has contributed some of the most lasting and memorable children’s characters in modern history. For over 40 years, the show has continued promoting basic ideals and teaching kids fundamental skills that serve them well into their adult years and numerous related toys have spawned as a result. The Cookie Monster Food Train, available in the fall of 2013, is set to be one part of the latest incarnation of those toys.

Product price and more details can be found here.

Let’s take a look at some of the features
The Cookie Monster Food Train is one part of the Sesame Street Roads and Rails collection. It is a train set that can operate as a stand-alone toy, or it can connect to the larger Elmo Junction. The set has children pushing Cookie Monster as he drives a food train across the rails and talks about his favorite foods. The attachable rail car can attach to the Elmo Junction train set, and it includes a removable crate of bananas so kids can feel like they’re really hauling something.

While the set can be used separately, it is intended as an attachment to the main Elmo Junction set.

Things We Like About Cookie Monster Food Train
Kids love collecting sets, and the Cookie Monster Food Train feeds that desire. Children who get the food train will want to continue the collection with Elmo Junction and the other segments. The included crate of bananas and the soundtracks that play as the train is pushed across the track demonstrate that Cookie Monster has branched out his eating habits to include more natural sweets instead of his traditional cookie-gobbling.

Things We Did Not Like About Cookie Monster Food Train
The fact that Cookie Monster Food Train is part of a set could potentially be a drawback as parents might not want the potential commitment of purchasing the entire series.

Who Would Buy Cookie Monster Food Train?
Parents with kids who love trains (which is pretty much every parent) will love Cookie Monster’s latest vehicle.

Guarantee?
The set is being produced and released by Hasbro, a company with a longstanding dedication to quality and reliability. While no official guarantees have been released as of yet, consumers can rest assured it will have a thorough one.

Where Can I Buy Cookie Monster Food Train?
All major retailers, both physical and online at amazon, that currently sell Sesame Street and other Hasbro products will have the food train.

Princess Twilight Sparkly Toy Review

My Little Pony has been a hugely popular series since the 1980s. In recent days, the series has picked up a whole new crop of followers and fans of all ages. The show features a varied cast of unique, adorable ponies, one of whom is Twilight Sparkle. She is one of the show’s main protagonists and has evolved from a regular magical pony to an Alicorn, a demigod combination of a Pegasus and unicorn. While her evolution was initially met with some apprehension from the fan community, the majority has come to accept her new role and status, and Hasbro is releasing the Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy in honor of her transformation.

Those interested can get this toy by clicking here.

Let’s take a look at some of the features
The Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy matches her transformed appearance in the show. She is mainly purple with blue Pegasus wings and a golden crown. The toy stands about a foot tall and has a series of sophisticated sensors covering her. She responds to various stimuli, singing and cooing when her hair is brushed, or when she is stroked, for instance. Her wings flap and light up when stroked or when her hooves are pulled across the ground.

Things We Like About Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy

With the Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy, Hasbro is truly paying tribute to the undying fans of the series. She matches the in-show character both in appearance, sound, and action. Technically, the toy is fairly nifty, containing a large number of varied responses that apply to numerous interactions.

Things We Did Not Like About Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy
It would be nice to have Twilight Sparkle’s wings flap when actually being flown around and not just being dragged on the ground. Flight is supposed to take place in the air, after all, and the current version is kind of the opposite of that.

Who Would Buy Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy?
Both adult and children fans of the show will likely be waiting in line for Princess Twilight Sparkle’s release!

Guarantee?
Hasbro covers all their products with a comprehensive warranty protecting against any defects in workmanship or components.

Where Can I Buy Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy?
She will be available from all major toy retailers, department stores, and online retailers such as Amazon, as well as from smaller specialty toy shops.

More Customer Reviews for Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy
Even though some fans initially met Twilight Sparkle’s transformation with shock and apprehension, most have accepted it and are eagerly awaiting her addition to their collections!

Boom Boom Balloon Review

Boom Boom Balloon Review

Kids have long been huge fans of activity games – that is, games that operate outside the traditional board game style and have completely unique game play devices, like Janga, for instance. At the same time, all kids love balloons, but what many of them love even more than mere balloons is popping balloons. The Boom Boom Balloon game, as one might assume from the name, combines those two loves into a fun, tension filled (no pun intended) game!

To get boom boom balloon, click here.

Let’s take a look at some of the features

Boom Boom Balloon operates on a very simple concept. The game comes with 10 balloons, several sticks, and a frame. Users blow up one of the balloons inside the frame and tie it off, and then insert all of the sticks into the holes in the frame. Players then roll the 6-sided die and push a stick or sticks of their choice in, depending upon their roll. As the sticks go further in, the surface tension is increased on the balloon, and the loser is the one that makes it pop! The game is very simple and easy to understand.

Things We Like About Boom Boom Balloon
The game is rated for children ages 8 and up, but the concept is so simple, nearly any age can understand it, though younger children may be put off by the loud burst. Even adults can have fun waiting with baited breath for the strained balloon to finally burst. The frame includes a very handy tie-off system that relieves players of tying tiny, awkward knots, and all of the included parts are sturdy and well made.

Things We Did Not Like About Boom Boom Balloon
While Boom Boom Balloon is undoubtedly a fun and simple concept, the only drawback is that merely 10 balloons are included. Certainly, replacement balloons are very inexpensive and can be purchased almost anywhere, but it would have been nice to have had more included.

Who Would Buy Boom Boom Balloon?
Boom Boom Balloon is a game the whole family can play together, and nearly everyone loves popping balloons!

Guarantee?
It is unknown if the game has an official warranty, though it likely protects against workmanship defects and similar issues.

Where Can I Buy Boom Boom Balloon?
Boom Boom Balloon has not yet been fully released but will likely be available from all major retailers when it is. Online retailers like Amazon as well as major chain stores like Walmart and Target will likely carry this product as well.

More Customer Reviews for Boom Boom Balloon
Even though the game has not been widely released yet, game players across the country are eagerly waiting to set the game up and to get popping their own balloons!
