Late last month, Disney and LEGO unveiled a slew of LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets in celebration of Force Friday. Before we move on, we have to be clear that Force Friday is not the same as the fans-proclaimed May the Fourth. Think of Force Friday as the Father/Mother’s Day equivalent, i.e. officially sanctioned Star Wars day. But that’s not important. The important thing is, fans will have more reasons to part with their hard-earned money – if the recently revealed enormous LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon haven’t already leave your piggy bank high and dry.

Have you heard? There will be a new droid star in the upcoming 8th Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and it is called BB-9E. While it may not be as memorable as R2-D2 and C-3PO, the BB-8 from the last Star Wars flick was adorable in its own right and it appears that this next droid is here to pick up where BB-8 has left off. However, do not expect this droid to be a compassionate droid like its immediate forebear. It is anything but. If its colorway did not reveal any clue of the BB-9E’s allegiance, then the somewhat awkward flat head and glowing red eye should.

LEGO sets are generally wholesome toys because it is, after all, designed with kids in mind. But one Chinese LEGO knock off company, Xingbao Building Blocks (also known as Xīng Bǎo Jīmù), kind of broke new ground recently with a released of a “LEGO compatible” set that actually lets you or, god forbids, your kids, built a whorehouse, AKA brothel. It is said that prostitution is one of the oldest ‘profession’ in human civilization, but does it warrant a “LEGO compatible” set based around prostitutes’ home base? I mean, seriously, what are you going to tell you kids? Like “oh, these are whores and that’s the building they operate in.” And junior, “they get bang for monetary return, and oh, those lecherous-looking (knock off) minifigs are their customers.” Continue reading Chinese LEGO Knock Off Lets You Build A ‘LEGO Whorehouse’. Wait, What!??
While most grown ups continue to enjoy NERF toys as they are, some took it to the next level with mods. Mods are cool which makes the whole NERF experience a little more, how do you say? Intimate? Something like that. I did some myself to a good’ol Maverick Rev-6, but they are just basics. In fact, many mods are because there’s really this much you can do with a stock NERF blaster. But leave it to the geeks and you will see some pretty dope high-tech mods like the NERF Vulcan Sentry Gun some years ago. Sentry, as the name suggests, is a NERF robotic guard that protects your fort autonomously. It was good and all, except that it could not differentiate between friends from foes. The Raspberry Pi-powered NERF Blaster you see here, however, can. Continue reading This Face Recognition NERF Blaster Identifies Target Before Shooting

Remember the awesome Star Trek Enterprise children’s rocking toy? Well, if the natural wood finish did not quite convince junior that he/she is at the helm of one of the best star fleet there’s in the universe (fictional one, of course), then perhaps, this latest iteration with a lot more detailing and in a fresh coat of Federation Gray should bump up the realism by a few notches. As before, each rocker is individually handcrafted entirely out of wood and boast features like propulsion units, the iconic flying saucer main hull and the sensor dish-equipped secondary hull which also happens to be prestigious commander’s throne. The starship, wait, I mean the rocker, is designed for kids as young as an infant (as long as they can sit up and grasp the handles) up to five years of age.

If you don’t have at least $250k under your name, you can forget about ever owning Ferrari’s most iconic ride, the Ferrari 512 Testarossa. Your kids, however, will be a little more fortunate because at least, your kids will have a kiddie size variety you see here which costs ‘just’ about $97,000. Quite a steal, don’t you think so? Ok, maybe not. Anyways, this kid-size Ferrari 512 Testarossa is one of the only three originally built, with Ferrari’s blessing, of course, exclusively for Harrods three decades ago. When it was launched, it was sold at a cool £35,000 (about US$45,000) and if you think that was a princely sum (which it was, btw), wait till you hear how much it cost today. Continue reading No Kidding. This Restored Testarossa Kiddie Ride Cost As Much As A Porsche!
