If you can't afford the $55k price tag on the real TRON Light Cycle there's always this. And it's not a bad consolation prize. Are LEGOS the hippest toy around or what?...

$9.25 from Klecker Knives »

Klecker Knives gets the kids wielding folding lock-backs young. Their Trigger knife kit, edition glow-in-the dark, aspires to teach children ages 7 and up how to build their own pocket blade model. Now at first I wondered if schooling a kid to make a sharp weapon was the greatest idea. What if he's mean? What if he's clumsy? But Klecker points out the purpose of this kit is as much to teach our...

Who wants to try the Aquapod bottle launcher in their backyard? It shoots water-filled 2L sodie bottles up to 100 feet in the air with the assistance of nothing but its dock, a bike pump, and your foot. Got a beef with the...

$49 - $69 from Grush »

A gaming toothbrush for kids? Do we really have to go to lengths of Grush proportions, pandering to our insolent children's every inclination, in order to get them to do what they should simply by virtue of our saying, Hey you little snot! Turn off the damn video game and go brush your teeth! The answer is yes. At least if we don't want every night of our lives to turn into a battle. If we don't...

Anyone who's tried to teach a kid to ride a bike without training wheels knows that teaching a kid to ride a bike without training wheels is kind of a pain in the ass. First of all, they have trouble following simple instructions...

Here are some giant squishy beasts--Squishables, officially--fashioned after the likes of the Narwhal, T-Rex, Yeti, Cthulhu, Polar Bear, and Android mascot. I know you don't want one. But look: they appear to make ladies happy....

Life-sized is still a few feet away, but this giant Chewbacca plush toy measures in at a formidable 24" tall x 15" wide. Which is probably bigger than the kid you're going to pretend you're buying him for. And when you press...

I'd imagine a concern for all parents, but particularly male parents, is having a baby and then accidentally dropping it. Or tucking it snoozing in its carrier under the table at the bar so it will be out of the way, and then...

Some old lady called me a clown the other day so I decided to look up how to make balloon animals. And as luck would have it, there's a whole kit and how-to guide for balloon modeling. Though it's made by Ridley's so, you...

Father's Day is June 16th. I don't know about you, but I sure can't think of a better gift for a new dad than an apparatus that will allow him to suck the snot out of his kid's nose with his own mouth. And who says you have...

Apparently, these tchotchkes--Arrow Helicopters, officially--are huge in Thailand. Their tiny propellers, attached LED lights, easy-to-use tautened rubber band launch pads, and relative cheapness (about $4 for a deuce) give...

There is a detailed scientific explanation for why otherwise-translucent Tekno Bubbles glow majestic blues and golds under the phosphorescent umbrella of a black light, but we were so Svengalied by the pretty colors we forgot...

I think all kids should be given a Chalktrail and told to ride however they want around a big open driveway or parking lot. Then when they've finished a bunch of child psychologists can come in to examine and assess their...

First the bad news: install this jungle gym contraption in your doorway and the odds you will get inadvertently divebombed or kicked in the face by the child using it as you walk by one day are close to 1:1. And now the good...

So I get that this Star Wars baby mobile is probably hand spun from fine wool and all, but is the wool shorn from golden fleeced sheep? Does the miniature Millennium Falcon also contain a miniature Han Solo and Chewie? Who...

If LEGOs bred with the Honkers from Sesame Street, their progeny would be Squigz. Squigz. What a rad name. Too bad it's wasted on a kiddie (and adult kiddie) building toy instead of, say, a new kind of shot in which Everclear...

The marketing photos for this vampacifier aren't that impressive. They make it look like a good idea that was poorly executed. Kind of like the entire Twilight book series. Or the WTF-looking children of Bruce Willis and Demi...

No batteries, no gun powder, no electricity. Just good old fashioned oxygen. And these babies fly up to 200 feet in the air... or plenty far enough to hit your little sister in the face from the other side of the room. Stomp...

Let's face it... kids are gonna try and eat the damn bubbles anyway. So rather than having them inadvertently wash their own mouths out with the soapy bubble taste (lest it make them immune to future punishments for cursing)...
