This week, we’re taking a look at remixes of some of your favorite classics:
1. Franklin Sports Whirl Ball
Bring skee-ball to your living room with this new take on the classic game from Franklin Sports. Feels just like the arcade original with electronic scoring and familiar sounds.
2. Hatchimals Pixies Crystal Flyers
Just like the vintage Sky Dancers, this Hatchimal Flyer will spiral into the air and dance around your room. However this new version is ready for the 21st century with internal sensors so she can follow your own hand, auto-stop safety functions and USB recharging.
3. Operation Pet Scan
Meet Cavity Sam’s dog Rex-Ray in the perfect sequel to everybody’s favorite medical drama, Operation! Like most dogs, Rex-Ray eats a lot of stuff he finds around the house. Help him guide these items through the belly but keep an eye on the inner walls or else you might give this pup a little gas.
4. Fat Brain SpinAgain
Take the Rock-a-Stack to a whole new level with this perfect piece for early motor skills development. Rather than just stacking the discs, each acts as a cog and will corkscrew down the pole in the most exciting way!
5. Oekaki House Magic Drawing Board Dog
kiko+ & gg* is an awesome woman-owned brand from Osaka that creates beautifully-designed toys for parents who want to encourage imaginative play. Their Oekaki (Japanese for drawing board) is the perfect minimalist alternative to the classic Magna Doodle, made of sustainably-sourced beech wood.
6. Goodnight iPad
Everybody has read “Goodnight Moon” at least once before bed. But now all our kids just want to play Angry Birds and trade GameStop stocks on Robinhood before drifting off to dreamtown. Time to make a compromise with your little ones and share in the LCD-fueled wonder that is our modern society with this instant classic.
7. Little Tikes Go Green Jr. Play Slide
Were you ever barreling your way down a slide and thought to yourself, “man, I wish I could fold this up and take it with me anywhere!” Did you also think to yourself, “and I wish this was made of more sustainable materials.” Well, good thing Little Tikes created this foldable slide made entirely in the USA from durable and recycled plastics.
8. LEGO Mars Research Shuttle
Blast off to humankind's future top vacation spot with this super advanced LEGO set! Featuring 273 pieces, this set will let you build a NASA-inspired shuttle as well as a rover and storage drone.
9. Ms. Monopoly
The perfect addition to your board game collection for Women’s History Month! In Ms. Monopoly, women are the all-stars so they get a higher payout at the start of the game and more money when passing go. Instead of buying properties, you buy iconic inventions that wouldn’t exist without women, including WiFi and bullet proof vests. Maybe we should all take a lesson from this.
Relive your pocket-full-of-quarters days with classic handheld arcade games and computer-lab favorites.
