There's Already A Special Edition Of That New Devastator For Comic-Con

Nerf Hid A Surprisingly Capable Dart Gun In A Fashion Accessory

The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves. But instead of reaching for a bow and arrow, Nerf’s Rebelle line wants them to reach for its new Secret Shot that hides a four-shot blaster inside a useless, but arguably fashionable, accessory.


Test Your Strength Against Marvel Villains Using Thor's Mighty Hammer

If the comic books and movies are any indication, the fact that anyone besides Thor can lift his mighty Mjölnir hammer is reason enough to feel pretty great about yourself.

Our First Official Look At Mr Potato Head In His Ant-Man Costume

8 Popular Toys From The '80s That Are Back

The ’80s were arguably one of the greatest decades in history to be a kid with an allowance burning a hole in your pocket, and a free afternoon to spend at a toy store. And decades later toy companies have realised that all those kids buying the wonderful toys from the ’80s are all grown up now with plenty of disposable income and a penchant for nostalgia. So is it any surprise that so many toy lines from the ’80s are being resurrected? You won’t hear any complaints here.


Skip-It And Twister Now Work With A Kid-Friendly Fitness Tracker

Remember Skip-It, the toy kids shackled and spun around their ankles in an attempt to rack up the high score on its built-in counter? It’s back, and now packing some legitimate technology in the form of a kid-friendly wearable fitness tracker that remembers their high score, as well as other fitness-related metrics.


The Best Stuff At Toy Fair 2015

Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids — or themselves — when the holidays roll around again. And once again we grabbed our cameras, put ourselves in the mind of a child (that was the easy part), and set out to find the most exciting new toys that will be hitting store shelves this year.


The Gigantic New Devastator Towers Over All Other Transformers

When the Transformers finally reached North America back in the ’80s, Devastator was the first set where multiple robots could join forces to assemble into an even larger figure.

Chomping T-Rex And Velociraptor Hand Puppets Are The Best Gloves

Briefly: It’s impossible not to love the Hulk, but given the choice between wearing a pair of over-sized green hands that smash, or the giant gaping jaws of our favourite dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park films, the T-rex and Velociraptor are always going to win.
