[Deal Alert] Sphero Spider-Man down to $35 ($115 off) at Best Buy

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Sphero is known for creating clever, oddball electronic toys, and this Spider-Man one is no different. Unfortunately for Sphero, these toys tend to be discounted quite severely after a few months on the market; for instance, the $300 Ultimate Lightning McQueen can now be had for $119 on Amazon. In a similar manner, this Spider-Man toy has dropped from $149.99 to just $34.99 at Best Buy.

Sphero's Spider-Man features speech recognition, animated LCD eyes, "Spider-Sense" motion detection via an IR sensor, the ability to create a story, and more.

[Deal Alert] Ultimate Lightning McQueen by Sphero is $148.99 (50% off) on Amazon

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

About half a year ago, we reviewed Sphero's Ultimate Lightning McQueen RC car. We walked away unimpressed due to its subpar controls and monstrous $300 price tag, despite its realism and cool factor. Now it's been discounted to a much more reasonable $148.99, just a bit over 50% off its MSRP, on Amazon.

Ultimate Lightning McQueen is supposed to be a realistic scale version of the Cars movies' Lightning McQueen. There are a ton of motors, touch sensors, lights, and a speaker on board, all so that McQueen can talk and move just like the real thing.

Wonder Workshop Dot and Cue review: One of these is not like the other

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

A few months ago, I reviewed the Collectors Edition of Anki's popular 'Cozmo' robot. Cozmo was first and foremost a toy, but the app included a 'Code Lab' where owners could create simple block-based programs (Anki has even extended that in subsequent updates).

After that review, Wonder Workshop asked me if I wanted to try out two of its toy robots - the 'Dot' and 'Cue.' Unlike the Cozmo, where coding functionality was more of an afterthought, programming is at the heart of the Dot and Cue.

[Deal Alert] Cozmo app-controlled robot is $127 ($53 off) on Amazon

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Back in September, I got to try out the Cozmo Collector's Edition, a re-release of the 'Cozmo' app-controlled toy from last year. I definitely enjoyed using it, but the high price point of $179 made it a tough sell for many. Now you can get the original version for $127, a savings of $53.

The collectors edition I reviewed is identical in functionality to the older model. The only difference is the design - the older version is mostly white, while the new one is a dark silver color.

VTech’s $100 KidiBuzz is a chunky Android-powered ‘phone’ for your kids, and it’s available now

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

More and more children these days are getting their own smartphones. But if you just want your kid to feel like they have one, you can now look to the Android-powered VTech KidiBuzz, a Galaxy S III-esque device that isn't actually a phone. But with all the functions it supports over WiFi, your son or daughter will think it is.

KidiBuzz is technically just a tiny tablet, as it only supports WiFi.

Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition review: Just as good as the original, but with 100% more Vin Diesel

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

Anki is one of the biggest names in electronic toys right now, and for good reason; it's one of the few companies that has brought robotics to kids. This all started with its 2014 introduction of "Anki Drive," a more modern take on slot car racing that added weapons and artificial intelligence. "OVERDRIVE" was released in 2015 as a successor to Drive, and proved to be a market success. After all, it's the first Anki product I'd ever heard of.

Cozmo Collector’s Edition review: Still adorable, still fun

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

When I was younger (maybe 8 or 9), I absolutely loved toy robots. I remember having a particular fascination for toys from WowWee, like the 'Robosapien' and the 'Roboraptor.' I managed to convince my parents one year to get the Roboraptor for my birthday, which I still own to this day. It was pretty basic by today's standards (the most advanced part of it was the IR sensor), but it was awesome at the time.

Sphero announces R2-D2 and BB-9E remote control droids

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Sphero's BB-8 remote control toy was a massive hit when it was released in 2015, partially because it was a great product, but also because the hype machine for The Force Awakens was at full speed. Now that another main series Star Wars film is on the way, it only makes sense that Disney would again partner with Sphero. Except this time, there are two of them.

The first new product is a recreation of one of the original Star Wars droids, R2-D2.

[Deal Alert] Anki’s Cozmo robot is $152.99 ($27 off) on Amazon

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Cozmo, which is unfortunately unrelated to Cozmo Kramer, is a fairly popular interactive toy robot. It can stack tiny blocks, play games, and be controlled like a typical RC car. If you've been waiting to try it out, you can now buy Cozmo off Amazon for $152.99, a $27 reduction from the usual price.

Out of the box, Cozmo comes with three game cubes (seen in the video above), the robot itself, and a charger.
