This isn't quite breaking news as it's been out there for a few days, but I wanted to share a couple new products from NECA Toys on here that caught my eye. As a child of the 80s, ROBOCOP and GREMLINS are a pair of franchises that hold a warm place in my heart. While 'Cop will be some years off, I'm looking forward to the day that I get to share GREMLINS with my daughters for the first time. So how about some toys?
BABIES 'R' US recently announced a new partnership with HEIDI KLUM to create a new collection of ''affordable luxuries for little ones.'' Truly Scrumptious by Heidi Klum, will be available in all Babies“R”Us stores across North America and online at Babiesrus.com beginning this Fall. My wife being the huge PROJECT RUNWAY fan, she's very excited about this. Here's a little bit of what you can expect from this new product line...
The crew over at Diamond Select Toys sent a quick update to inform the masses that their movie-themed wave of MARVEL MINIMATES has begun hitting TOYS R US stores. While THE AVENGERS doesn't hit U.S. screens for a few more days, you can certainly track down a ton of cool merch for kids of all ages. Here's what they say about the Minimates.
When my little one and I visit the local park district for ''parent-tot playtime'' during the week, one of the simplest, yet always hot play items are the fabric tents and tunnels. In fact, they're so popular that fellow parents often get caught up in discussion about getting one for their own home. Since last summer, I've probably led more than a few parents in the direction of the ENORMOUS I TUNNEL from Pacific Play Tents. Special-ordered by Grandma for my daughter's 2nd birthday from TOYS R US ($59.99), the item was drop-shipped to our home from Pacific Play Tents' warehouse in Indiana.
The 2011 Holiday Shopping Season is officially underway for Toys "R" Us, as the company invited shoppers to''Join Geoffrey for the Ultimate Kick Off to Christmas'' at it's stores yesterday afternoon. As we did for Geoffrey the Giraffe's Birthday Celebration back in September, we made it a family affair and headed out to the local TRU store so that the little one could meet Geoffrey once more, and we'd set her up for a Holiday Wish List - for which TRU had pledged to donate $1 for every list created to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
