Destroy ‘N Devour Indominus Rex Will Eat Your Action Figures
If you got excited at the idea of that sweet Jurassic World raptor toy that was on sale back in December, Mattel’s latest dino might also float your boat. At the 2018 New York Toy Fair last month, it unveiled an awesome toy called the Destroy ‘N Devour Indominus Rex from Jurassic World.

Pictionary is usually played by drawing on a sheet of paper or maybe a whiteboard. Now, we have a new way of playing the game by drawing in the air. No, not with your finger. Mattel has announced a new high tech version of the game, called Pictionary Air.

Mattel Pocket Football and Basketball Shrink Down to Keychain Size

Mattel Pocket Football and Basketball Shrink Down to Keychain Size
When I was a kid, I used to play the heck out of that Mattel Pocket Football game. I always sucked at kicking, but I was quite adept at running down the field fast as hell.

Mattel Classic Retro Sports Games Still Suck

Mattel Classic Retro Sports Games Still Suck
Anyone who didn’t grow up back in the early ’80s doesn’t really understand how awesome it was when video games started hitting the scene. In those days, if we found a quarter in the road, we were in the gas station arcade 60 seconds later.

Nintendo Power Glove Controls Drone

Nintendo Power Glove Controls Drone
One of the better video game controller that Mattel tried early on was the Nintendo Power Glove. It was very innovative for its time, but naturally it didn’t always function as well as we would have liked.

2016 Mattel ThingMaker 3D Printer: Pretty Printer

2016 Mattel ThingMaker 3D Printer: Pretty Printer
If there was ever a better name for a 3D printer than “3D printer”, it would probably be ThingMaker. So it’s no surprise that the accidentally prescient toymaker Mattel is relaunching its brand as exactly that.

Mattel’s Bug Racers Are Steered by Live Insects

Mattel’s Bug Racers Are Steered by Live Insects
Toys sure have come a long way. Get ready for tiny cars that are piloted by real living insects. No joke. Why would your kid want to control their toy themselves when they can enslave an insect?

Halo Needler Dart Gun Coming from Mattel’s BOOMco

Halo Needler Dart Gun Coming from Mattel’s BOOMco
A few years back, my neighborhood was a dangerous place. There were roving bands of 8-year-olds armed with all the latest dart-firing weapons. They had nothing better to do than lie in wait in the bushes laughing with childish glee as they waited for you to walk out your door so they could shoot you in the balls.

Google & Mattel Relaunch the View-Master as a Kid’s VR Headset: VRiew-Master
Google and toymaker Mattel are taking the classic View-Master toy to its logical evolution by relaunching it as a virtual reality headset for kids. Instead of holding cardboard disks, the new View-Master holds a smartphone and has a pair of lenses built-in.

Power Mitt Oven Glove: Now You’re Cooking with Fingers

Power Mitt Oven Glove: Now You’re Cooking with Fingers
Last year we saw a fabric oven mitt that looked just like Nintendo’s infamous Power Glove. Pete Hottelet is raising funds on Indiegogo for a very similar product. Also named the Power Mitt, Pete’s take is made of silicone rubber and thus should be more heat-resistant than the other mitt.

Ghostbusters Neutrino Wand Replica: Who Ya Gonna Call?

Ghostbusters Neutrino Wand Replica: Who Ya Gonna Call?
There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who call the Ghostbusters and the ones who do the actual ghostbusting. If you want to be a part of the latter, you’d better have the right equipment.

Power Mitt: Everything Else in Your Kitchen Is Child’s Play

Power Mitt: Everything Else in Your Kitchen Is Child’s Play
While I’m sure most of you never had the *cough* pleasure of actually playing a game with the Nintendo/Mattel Power Glove, you can certainly pick a working one up over on eBay if you’ve got about $100 kicking around.

Steampunk Batman Blaster Pistol: Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?

Steampunk Batman Blaster Pistol: Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?
If you’ve ever read any of the Elseworlds trade paperbacks from the DC Universe, then you have seen your favorite heroes in “What if” scenarios – like Superman being a hero in Gotham while Batman is in Metropolis, or Batman in the Civil War – that sort of thing.

Mattel’s Official Back to the Future Hoverboard: But Will it Hover?

Mattel’s Official Back to the Future Hoverboard: But Will it Hover?
The Back to the Future trilogy had so many cool things in it, but one of the things that we remember most is from Back to the Future II. The hoverboard that Marty steals to flee from trouble.

Zombie Attack Barbie Prepares Girls for The Walking Dead

Zombie Attack Barbie Prepares Girls for The Walking Dead
After decades of scarring girls by giving them an impossible ideal of beauty, body issues and eating disorders, it’s nice to see that Barbie will now be doing something productive – preparing them for the eventual zombie apocalypse.
