The Racing Track of the Future

The Racing Track of the Future

Lucky for you Amazon has a great deal on one of the coolest & most popular toys of the year, Anki Overdrive. This race track can be built in eight different configurations and the cars are controlled via smartphone/tablet apps. Playing solo? There’s even a mode that allows your kid to race an AI controlled 2nd car. The starter pack is 20% off right now and if your kids get into it (and, of course they will) the available expansion packs for additional track pieces and more muscular cars make gift-giving for future holidays and birthdays a breeze. We can pretty much guarantee you’ll love playing with it almost as much as they do.

20 Gifts for Your “Other Kids”

Admit it. This is where your “guilt” money gets spent. Those pets were once considered your children until the real ones came along. Now you inexplicably carry guilt that you don’t give your pet the attention you used to. We’re not saying buying your pet something will make you feel better but, hey, they’ll look good.

May The Socks Be With You – Star Wars

Just in case you didn’t hear a cute little crowd-funded indie flick opens tomorrow. Just kidding, it’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and it’s probably already the biggest movie of all time and you are probably going this weekend. Go in style with these Star Wars socks from Stance. We know you won’t get them for the premiere but who are you kidding man, you are seeing this thing 4-5 times minimum. Han shot first.

Limited Edition Coloring Books are Something You Need in Your Life

Limited Edition Coloring Books are Something You Need in Your Life

Once your kids graduate from dollar store coloring books and grow tired of the augmented reality coloring pages/apps but are still too young for the crazy intense adult coloring books that are topping the Amazon charts, there’s only one place to turn to: Doodl Club. Each month a new artist “creates a zine-format coloring book that is addressed & delivered to your favorite kid.” The first issue was by artist Jim Stoten and Issue 2 (shipping now) was drawn by Scott Teplin. It’s a great screen-free activity that supports artists and will bring a smile to your kid’s face when each new issue shows up. Because snail mail still rocks.
