Takara Tomy Robo Fish: Wall-E Meets Nemo
Halt, citizen! Put the goldfish down. You cannot take care of it, and it will not fill the hole in your heart that your ex punched through when she left. But if you already bought an aquarium, consider filling it with Robo Fish.

Rosko Pom Pom Tank: Coolest Retro Toy Ever?
Most of us weren’t born yet back in the 1950s, but it was definitely a time long before modern remote-controlled electronic playthings. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t some cool toys back in the day – like this awesome old-school metal tank I spotted over on Etsy.

Kyosho Space Ball R/C Chopper: Spaceballs: The Helicopter

Kyosho Space Ball R/C Chopper: Spaceballs: The Helicopter
Children are masters at breaking toys. They also have a doctorate in getting themselves hurt. Kyosho’s remote-controlled helicopter mitigates both tendencies with one feature. The entire thing is inside a spherical plastic cage that protects both itself and the people it will inevitably hit.

CarBot R/C Car Driven by Tablet or Smartphone
Over the years, I’ve seen more than a few remote-controlled toys that use the iPhone or other smartphones as their controller. Several of these little devices have come from a company called DeskPets. DeskPets is back with another cheap remote controlled toy that uses Android or iOS devices as the controller.

Dalek Plush Baby Toys are Too Cute to Exterminate Us (or Are They?)
If there’s one word you don’t usually picture when you think about Daleks, it’s “cute”. But these plush Daleks are the cutest Daleks I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Game of Thrones Collectible Figures: A Song of Ice and Vinyl
I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones. As a matter of fact, I’m going back and watching all 20 episodes again with my wife, now that she’s convinced that it’s an awesome show as well.

Chestburster Plush: A Toy Only an Alien Queen Could Love

Chestburster Plush: A Toy Only an Alien Queen Could Love
If a Facehugger plush facemates with a poor stuffed toy, a Chestburster plush can’t be far behind. This 1:1 scale replica is so accurate I wouldn’t hug this thing if my stuffed toy’s life depended on it.

Combat Creatures Attacknid Robot Revealed: Get Ready for The Holiday Toy of the Year

Combat Creatures Attacknid Robot Revealed: Get Ready for The Holiday Toy of the Year
A few months back, robot/toy designer Jaimie Mantzel showed off an early prototype of a six-legged robot toy that looked pretty damned awesome. He announced at the time that he was working on it so a production version could eventually be made, and now we can see the final build in action!

Batwing R/C Plane: The Dark Flight Rises

Batwing R/C Plane: The Dark Flight Rises
R/C toys are fun. Whether it’s driving, flying or navigating the the waterways, it’s all good. It’s even cooler if you are capable of customizing your R/C craft. R/C hobbyist Chris Allen knows a thing or two about that, having built this awesome 70MM EDF JET powered Batwing from scratch.

Stargate SG-1 Death Glider Made from LEGO
I’m huge fan of Stargate both on the big screen and the TV series that ran for so long. In fact, my first date with my future wife years ago was to see Stargate on the big screen.

Weerol is the Toy that Grows with Your Child
Raising kids these days is expensive. Aside from the basics, like food and clothing, there’s also the “extra” expenses like toys. Based on what you’ve probably heard from you friends, kids outgrow toys almost as fast as they outgrow their clothes. 

LED Etch-a-Sketch Lets You Draw Your Own Lamp

LED Etch-a-Sketch Lets You Draw Your Own Lamp
We’ve seen a variety of hacks and mods based on the Etch-a-Sketch, but none of them messed with the way it makes images. That’s exactly what Christopher Monaco did. He built his own take on the drawing toy, but instead of aluminum powder he used LEDs.
