So “ugly” he is adorable, the Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet is the perfect dog. He will never chew up your slippers or soil the carpet, and your child or young adult has a choice of gray, brown or beige. Made by Moose Toys for children 6 years and up, the Ugglys Pug electronic pet hand puppets perform a wide array of funny and disgusting actions, and are definitely fun-oriented for those kids that find noisy bodily functions hilarious. Let’s slide our hand inside and see what makes them tick (and burp).

The Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet

Key Features of The Ugglys Pug Electronic Pets

  • requires 3 AAA batteries (not included)
  • Adoption certificate for proof of ownership
  • Makes more than 30 sounds
  • Hand puppet encourages creativity
  • Sounds are customizable

(Full features, details and customer reviews can be viewed here)

Are Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet Hand Puppets Worth a Purchase?

Weighing about 1 1/2 pounds, the Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet hand puppets are advertised to be mischievous and disgusting. So be forewarned, these are not for your kids if you don’t appreciate gross-out humor. But for in-you-face enjoyment for children and preteens, the dirty dog will probably be just the right purchase. Making over 30 different sounds including farts and burps, the putrid pug even snores when he is left alone, waiting for you to slip your hand inside and activate him.

A truly ugly, yet enthralling, hand puppet, this toy will definitely unlock the mischievous side in your child. And the ability to adjust the pitch either higher or lower by turning the dial on the dog’s collar will come in handy for adults who get tired of this puppet’s gaseous adventures.

When you slip your hand inside, the dog “wakes up”, and your Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet comes complete with an adoption certificate for proof of ownership. This toy hand puppet is more likely to appeal to young boys and male tweens rather than little girls, and will be perfect for extended fits of laughter in rowdy kids.

This is definitely a toy that you know you either must have or will not have for your children, and while some parents will find this pug repugnant, many will be just as tickled as their children with the animal’s rude but hilarious behavior. The pup-pet is very durably made in hardened but pliable plastic, and it looks very realistically like an actual pug. Measuring 8.2 x 8.2 x 7.4 inches in size, the Ugglys Pug Electronic Pet is ugly and attractive at the same time, and is definitely made for a rambunctious and raucous playtime.

The Razor Crazy Cart is one of the many mobile creations from the company that makes scooters, go carts and mopeds. The Crazy Cart earns the crazy in its name because it looks like a study go-kart, but it offers full 360 degree steering. Built for children ages 9 and up, your child can use the unique drive system to go in directions that traditional go-karts and toy cars cannot manage. Let us pop the hood on the children’s Razor Crazy Cart and get to know a little bit more about this multi-directional motorized toy.

The Razor Crazy Cart

Key Features of The Razor Crazy Cart

* Has standard go-kart and multi-directional Crazy Cart modes
* Reaches speeds of up to 12 mph
* Supports riders up to 132 pounds in weight
* Up to 40 minutes of drive time from a single charge
* Variable speed foot pedal
* Drift Bar helps you control rear-end drifts

(full features, details and reviews can be found here)

Is the Razor Crazy Cart Right For My Child?

Also known as the Razor Crazy Drift Cart, the stubby little go-kart can go pretty fast, so parents should be sure that safety gear like a helmet, shoulder pads and knee pads are worn. There is a protective seat belt, but there are no sides or roof, so this is probably not the right car for younger or smaller children. The unique drift bar allows you to control back-end sway and drift, and the little machine can attain speeds of up to 12 miles per hour.

With 360 degree turning capability, as well as being able to drive forward, reverse, diagonally and even sideways, Crazy Cart is the appropriate name for this powerful little vehicle. The battery powering the cart is rechargeable and sealed, and the dual 12 V batteries charge in about 12 hours. After that charge your child can get anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes of drive time in real world use.

One nice feature that is not always found on the other kids go-karts and motorized toys is the variable speed foot pedal. Your child can learn to regulate his speed by lowering and raising his foot, just like he would in a real automobile. This is not an inexpensive toy, and should be considered a starter vehicle for your child.

When first using you can let your child become comfortable in the standard go-kart mode, stepping up to the crazy cart option when he feels comfortable. Like many children’s go-carts, there is no brake pedal, and your child must slow down and stop by easing off the accelerator pedal. Some assembly is required, and the product does weigh 72 pounds, but the unique multi-directional steering system of the Razor Crazy Cart will definitely justify its higher-level price tag with years of enjoyment.

Are the Despicable Me Minion Collector’s Edition Pieces Worth a Purchase?

If your child, or you, enjoyed the Despicable Me 2 movie and the adorable little stars Dave, Agnes and Gru, these limited edition collectors’ figures put the movie’s stars right in your hand. The clothing they wear is identical to what was shown in the film, and a Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each piece.

Through interaction, Dave, Agnes and Gru all speak 30 to 40 Minion sayings, many from the movie, in their original voice. Dave measures just over 9 inches tall, Agnes is approximately 11 inches tall, and the hulking Gru stands a full 14 inches in height.

Each of the three Despicable Me 2 characters comes equipped with batteries, and offers a different visual gag. Agnes sings the Unicorn song when you press her T-shirt twice, pressing Dave’s chin two times delivers a Minion song and all three pieces are outfitted in well-stitched fabric. The threesome also understands when you raise your voice, and they respond accordingly!

And these “intelligent” collectors item film replicas really do look just like the characters in the movie, and can be kept inside the transparent packaging for collectors item value or played with just like any normal plush toy. Gru is clothed in the familiar fabric jacket, with scarf and pants, Agnes wears a fabric shirt, and both she and Dave are outfitted in authentic jeans overalls includes display stand

The original movie voices are very accurate, as are every aspect of the facial and physical characteristics and costume on each figure. Dave, Gru and Agnes are all have moving head, eyes and mouth, and you can pose them as well. A nice collectible or play toy for younger and older fans of the movie.

The variety and the difference in skill levels should keep any puzzle enthusiast no matter how old or young engaged and active with this cube. There are also developer tools coming out in early 2013 that will allow anyone to code their own games into the Futuro Cube. We also like the fact that the device has many motion trackers on it and that it can also play sound and voice clips, which are very high quality as well!

Things we did not like about the Futuro Cube:

While the Futuro Cube is definitely a very nice and feature-packed device, the price of the item is a bit on the high side. While we did note the upcoming developer tools as a positive, it’s a negative based on the fact that there have been a couple of delays on the release of developer tools for this device.

You can watch our video review here:

The new Barbie Digital Dress Doll is the newest Barbie to come off the ‘runway’ with all the usual features that are expect from her but with one big twist. Her dress uses the latest LED and touch screen technology. It has 114 tri-coloured LED lights built into her dress and allows the user to choose between three different functions:

  • • The first function allows the user to choose from pre-set patterns such as hearts, and fireworks. By sliding a finger across the touch screen dress the user can brows through the different animated designs.
  • • The second allows the user to use the stylus to draw their own designs onto the dress. They can do this by first selecting a colour and then using the stylus to draw their design onto the dress.
  • • The third heart makes the LED’s respond to sound and music. This means when a child talks to their doll or plays music the graphics on the dress move according to the sounds in the room.

Updated price and more product specs can be found here.

Made by world famous toy brand Mattel this new doll complete with the 4.5 inch touch screed and LED lights is thought to become one of the most popular fashion dolls.

The original Barbie was created by Ruth and Elliot Handler back in 1959, and since then they have remained popular with girls all over the world. This new doll is another in a long line of dolls that will continue to be loved by millions of girls.

Who would buy the Barbie Digital Dress Doll?

Aimed at young girls aged 6 and up, and although the dolls programmable features may seem complicated they are in fact simple to use. It would make a great present for any young girl especially ones who like to draw and design. Girls who already love Barbie and even some who don’t are sure to be fans of this new interactive Digital Dress Barbie.

Although aimed at young girls there are even adults expressing an interest to have a play with the Barbie Digital Dress doll.

Things we like about the Barbie Digital Dress Doll

Barbie’s dress has been taken to a whole new level this time around and its new interactive features are amazing. The settings are changed by clicking on one of the three different hearts on her necklace. Allowing the child to easily choose which function they want to use. She also has articulated limbs including elbows and wrists meaning the child can pose her in different positions.

The feature that allows the user to draw their own designs is fantastic. They can use multiple colours is the one design and it really allows children the ability to create and design.

The idea of the LED lights on the dress is also something that has been seen on real fashion runways. So yet again Barbie is keeping up with real world fashion and allowing tech-savvy youngsters to keep up too.

Things we didn’t like about the Barbie Digital Dress Doll

The only downside to this doll is that if children play rough with the doll they may be capable of breaking the LED’s or the touch screen. With this being said as long as children are careful these shouldn’t be any problems.

Another point worth mentioning is that unlike the traditional Barbie where children can undress and dress her however they like. This new doll so far only comes with the one interactive dress.

Guarantee

Due to the fact that its still a long way off the release date there is no information yet on whether it will come with any sort of guarantee.

Is the Barbie Digital Dress Doll worth the money?

This provides hours of entertainment and fun. Children are less likely to get bored with this doll as they are able to constantly redesign her dress and come up with new ideas.

Where can I buy the Barbie Digital Dress Doll?

When release in August 2013 the Barbie Digital Dress should be available in all major toy stores like Toys R Us and Walmart as well as online retailers like Amazon. It will also be available online on shop websites as well as Mattel’s website.

In this day and age of hyperactivity and excessive violence in kid’s toys, it’s refreshing to find a plush toy series that promotes important values instead. The Stuffies series of plush animals offers a total of 11 choices, including Bravo the Bear, Stomper the Dino, and Muddzie the Pig. In addition to the unique pockets each Stuffie has, from whence the series derives its name, each member promotes a specific value, such as perseverance, helpfulness, patience, and more, and includes a related storybook.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Let’s take a look at some of the features
Stuffies are the ideal children’s plush toy for a number of reasons. On the surface, they are supersized, incredibly soft, adorable animals. Stuffies proceed on the notion that “it’s what inside that counts” however, so the outward appearance is just the beginning. Each Stuffie has 7 top-secret pockets of varying sizes so kids can hide treasures for safe keeping, bring additional toys on road trips, and more. Additionally, each one includes a special surprise gift and an interactive storybook that relates to the individual Stuffie’s value.

Product price and more feedbacks can be found here.

Things We Like About Stuffies
That they are not mere plush animals is what makes Stuffies truly shine. Certainly, they are huge, soft, and incredibly cute, but in addition to those, each Stuffie teaches kids the importance of a variety of values. And on top of each Stuffie’s stated value, children also learn organizational skills as they studiously decide which valuables to put in which secret pocket.

Things We Did Not Like About Stuffies
While Stuffies go on sale with relative frequency, the suggested retail price might be off-putting to some, more frugal parents.

Who Would Buy Stuffies?
Parents of kids of any age will love Stuffies! They have no small parts for younger children to put in their mouths, and they include the pockets and storybooks for older kids.

Guarantee?
Stuffies include a full 60-day money back guarantee.

Are Stuffies Worth the Money?
Stuffies are durable, easy to clean, and great for all ages. Kids can learn about valuable life skills while playing with an adorable plush bumblebee or dinosaur and filling their unique pockets. It’s hard to find a better value for your money.

Where Can I Buy Stuffies?
Consumers can purchase Stuffies from the company’s main website as well as reputable online stores, such as Amazon.com.

More Customer Reviews for Stuffies
In addition to the plethora of individuals who have purchased Stuffies and absolutely fell in love, the series has won The National Parenting Center’s 2012 Seal.

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.
