Now before we get carried away with all of Barbie’s professional aspirations, you have to take a look at this toy, it’s called the Barbie Glitterizer. You place decals on your Barbie…they have a sticky surface that attracts the glitter. Place your Barbie in the chamber and glitterize. Don’t you wonder what the aha moment was for this product…did someone dream of Barbie in a phone booth, she had just come from the craft store, there was an opened bag of glitter…there was a gust of wind.
In any case, this is one of the funniest Barbie activity kits ever. Watch the video.
It was only a prototype (and a buggy prototype at that)…but if it works the way it did during our demo, this promises to be one of the best games for 2010. Takes the play of Scrabble, Boggle…and marries it with fun technology. Take a look at our video.
If you’ve followed our reviews over the years, you know I have a soft spot for everything Star Wars. It is the one exception to our rule of no toys with aggressive or violent themes (hey, it’s fantasy).
One of the coolest toys we saw at Hasbro’s preview is from the Star Wars line…but we can’t talk about it until the 12th. In the meantime, there is a new lightsaber that is pretty cool. The General Grievous Lightsaber will retail for $34.99 and will be available in August. Take a look at both videos…one explains how it comes apart and the other demos the movement. I’m getting used to using my iphone video for giving you sneak peaks. Thinking maybe I should get a FLIP for toy fair.
Two quick videos to look at:
