Amazon Echo Dot Now Has A Kids Edition But It Isn’t Kids Priced

I always lament how technology is advancing too fast for kids’ good, but however I lament, it is inevitable. I guess it was same when my parents frown when I secret acquired a cheap “Walkman.” Gone were the days where kids were thrilled by children songs (You know Baby Shark is very catchy?) and read about how eleven princes were turned into swans who only breathe air as humans during the night. Nope. These days, it is about Taylor Swift, America Got Talent, and the only fairy tale they knew is probably Supernatural.

Hasbro’s Articulated Infinity Gauntlet Is Wearable And Not A Bank-breaker

As much as we love the life-size replica of the Mad Titan’s prized space glove, AKA Infinity Gauntlet, I know very well I will not get it because of several reasons. Firstly, I do not live a mansion with extra rooms to display all these drool worthy collectibles. Secondly, blogger-level of income does not allow me to do that. Trust me. It is worst than minimum wage. Thirdly, I am not satisfied to be just ogling at it everyday; I want to wear it and pretend I could destroy half of the universe if I so choose to. But lucky for those who want a realistic looking Infinity Gauntlet (namely, yours truly here), there is the Hasbro Marvel Legends Series Infinity Gauntlet Articulated Electronic Fist.

Finally, A Motorcycle Rocker For Kids, But You’ll Probably NOT Buy It

I may not have met a lot of kids, but for the handful I have actually talked to, not one was into two-wheelers, except for bicycles. Hell. Even three-wheel skate scooter is more well received. For some reasons, little kids, boys and girls alike, are more enthused about cars. Maybe because kiddie rides are mostly took the form of cars. There are even sit-on toy horses with four wheels, which pretty much says a lot about the popularity of four wheelers. But if you love bikes and want to share your passion with junior, then Moto Rocker is exactly what you should get.

Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Available Now

The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon is one of the much loved set in the LEGO Star Wars collection (especially the ridiculously pricey UCS edition), but if the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story (Walt Disney Pictures, 2018) does indeed make much of dent in the box office, then perhaps, the star space vehicle of the flick may have a place in the LEGO Star Wars cult altar too. Just maybe. Whatever the case maybe, you will want to secure yourself a set (or several, if you have extremely deep pockets) just in case this thing becomes as big as its forebear.

This DIY Kit Lets Kids Build Their Own Tablet And Get Into The World Of STEM

When I was child, children were expected to earn their keeps, but these days, kids expect grown ups to shove a spoon down their throats. Now, you can do that, or you can continue the good’ol character building tradition by making them earn what they want. There are many ways to approach the latter, but in the case of a tablet, you can either ask them to earn it through their own savings, or you could ask them to build one themselves with the MakePad DIY Touchscreen Tablet by MakePi. MakePad is a DIY tablet kit tailored with the “touchscreen generation” in mind. Continue reading This DIY Kit Lets Kids Build Their Own Tablet And Get Into The World Of STEM
