    SIMPSONS LEGO MINIFIGURES REVEALED Lego already released a $255 Simpsons House, but this coming May, they’ll be releasing a series of 16 Lego Simpsons figures to go along with it! The set drops May 1st with each figure being sold for $3.99 (most likely blind-packaged), just in time for the May 4th episode “Brick Like Me” which sees Springfield and all its residents turned into Lego bricks.

Also, Green Inferno sounds like a pretty decent name for a strain of weed, just saying. Check it out: (via I Watch Stuff)

A NEW ERA HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN IN WESTEROS. The episode opens with Tywin Lannister melting down Ned Stark’s Valyrian sword and burning his wolf pelt. The melted steel is used to forge two new swords - one of which is given to Jaimie Lannister. Oh, and it all happens while “The Rains of…

    If I told you that Pop Culture Shock's painted RoboCop statue was the first thing that caught my eye from WonderCon, would you be surprised? Or better yet, can you blame me? From the metallic finish to the tiniest details on the cyborg cop's face, it looks like something I need to have on my shelf right now. And that's not all: Beastman and Trap-Jaw are joining He-Man in the Masters of the Universe collectibles line, and boy, do they look pretty awesome. I'm especially blown away by the Beastman sculpt; it looks just like the cartoon design. Also on hand were the Mortal Kombat and Street…

    WonderCon's smaller vendors included the always fun plushes of House of Darkly. The WonderKelp was an event exclusive (WonderKelp at WonderCon, get it?), and while it's not werewolf candy corn, the little cape and goofy smile make me smile a little bit. Most of the other plushes on display were some of House of Darkly's past hits, including the conversation bubbles and the little cloud Windy. I do quite like the orange and coffee cup, which seemed new to me. The cup's big eyes, like it's full of energy, and the little grin on its face are almost calling to me, "Drink me!

    Winter is thankfully done for most of the country. As we turn to Spring, we shake off all the snow except for one, Snow Miku! 2014's Nendoroid version of the seasonal Vocaloid was especially cute this year so how could it be topped? Well, that's up to you as the contest to design the 2015 version is now officially open. Just as in years past, Good Smile is teaming up with PIA Pro for the contest. This year's theme is incorporating the flora of winter. Given the possibilities, I imagine that the winner is going to be very colorful. Now, if I had any artistic talent, I'd get on this but I don't…

    Kotobukiya didn't bring much (if anything) new to WonderCon, which is understandable as it's not a tentpole convention in the US. However our determined editor Natalie covered their booth all the same despite being sick as a dog. Thanks Natalie! The nice thing about Kotobukiya is their US distribution arm, which means you don't always have to pay international shipping for their figures. The trade-off is a longer wait until the release (usually a month) but if you're a collector, patience is probably a virtue you possess. Click on to see what was on display. Read more...

    Aside from Volks and the smaller companies present, there was also an area for GK makers to show off their wares. Of course, with an event as small as Hobby Round, none of the GK makers will have anything new to show off since they will be saving those up for the likes of Treasure Festa and Wonder Festival but events like Hobby Round might give them greater exposure compared to the big events since they don't have to compete so much for buyers attentions. Many of these would have appeared at Wonder Festival but that doesn't mean that we can't appreciate them again. Kantai Collection rules…

Now when it comes to toys and games, Japan has long enjoyed a healthy foothold in North America—think of all the Pokémon, Hello Kitty, and Power Rangers products that have made their way over. So far in 2014, that trend has continued, with several new…

  • One Of My Favorite Floral Arrangements

    Linda Walsh
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:30 am
    I've made hundreds of silk floral arrangements over the years and have to admit that some come out better than others. Some work out some don't. Some are just stunning color wise and some end up being re-done.  Some I don't like and some I just love.The above is one of the latter. I created this floral arrangement several years ago and it has to be one of my favorites.The reason is because it's a combination of silk floral stems and several dried and preserved floral stems I had purchased several years ago. It has dried and preserved eucalyptus stems, glittery garland sprigs, and navy…
  • Time For Spring and Candy Dish Containers

    Linda Walsh
    13 Apr 2014 | 2:30 am
    I just love creating silk floral arrangements in all sorts of containers. I might use a basket, a metal container, a typical floral basin, glass vases, wooden crates, etc. Just about anything. So, when someone in the family asked me if I wanted a white milk glass candy dish they were throwing away I said - sure! So, since I had put away all my winter silk arrangements I decided to make a small, cheery silk floral arrangement for the spring and summer using the white milk glass candy dish.The arrangement is a combination of silk floral leaves, magnolia stems, lavender stems, and various other…
  • Sometimes Saving A Few Items Is Worth It

    12 Apr 2014 | 2:30 am
    I'm sure I'm not the only crafter that gets asked a lot if I want something before a family member or friend of a family member throws anything out that could be used for my crafts or is a craft supply. Many years ago I was given a large glass candle cover that someone in the family was throwing away and thought I might like to keep for my floral crafts. So, of course, I took it and stored it away for that one day when I was looking for something just like it.To understand collecting such things you have to understand that nothing irks a crafter more than to throw something away and then turn…

And for many Steiff enthusiasts, Teddy bears understandably are the Kings (and Queens) of their hugs - and hearts.

I am definitely not a long distance runner by any means, I actually hate running, 2 miles is about all I can handle. However, I know what it means to work hard and set goals.

You may remember Zhu Zhu Pets, also from Cepia? Those spunky little hamsters that were the biggest sold-out holiday sensation I’ve seen since I’ve been writing about toys the last 5 years? The Happy’s are cute little puppies and kittens that don’t require tracks and habitats like Zhu Zhu Pets did. Instead, they scurry all over the floor, completing “tricks.” Using a little…

    It’s the week before Easter, when we’re lead to believe that Spring is well under way. You know, the bunnies and chicks are in abundance, the grass is as green as the fake stuff in your Easter basket, and everything is blossoming in technicolor flowers. Not this year! The snow is almost melted in my yard, but there is not a green thing in sight! Ah, well, it just makes the Easter eggs easier to find. No matter your denomination, I hope you have an egg hunt on the agenda for your weekend – watching gleeful kids scurry around feels like such a rite of Spring. This week, round…

  • FAA clears up drone law misconceptions

    7 Mar 2014 | 6:19 pm
    The Federal Aviation Administration wants to debunk some misconceptions about FAA regulations regarding unmanned aircraft as it works to come up with a plan for their use in the United States. The FAA posted an article on its website, “Busting Myths about the FAA and Unmanned Aircraft,” detailing what it called common myths and corresponding facts. The FAA estimates that by 2018, about 7,500 small commercial unmanned aerial systems could be in use, assuming the federal government develops and implements rules for their use. In 2012, Congress passed a law tasking the FAA with developing a…
  • FAA regulations may classify R/C planes as drones

    5 Feb 2014 | 4:50 pm
    Model airplane enthusiasts have flown radio-controlled (R/C) aircraft for decades, with models ranging from trainers made out of Styrofoam to highly detailed replicas of specific airplanes and helicopters. But they’ve been caught up in the furor over “drones,” or what the federal government calls Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). In the strictest sense, an R/C airplane is a UAS, although a UAS typically has a specific, often commercial, use and R/C airplanes are flown for personal enjoyment. The Federal Aviation Administration’s only current rules dealing with R/C…

They loved that they were working together to make three puzzles that feature an orange duck, a purple fish and a green frog. Players use the spinner to determine which color puzzle piece they’ll be using. But beware, there are raindrops!   If six raindrops are collected, the round is over! Very sweet.

  • Weapons are weapons – even if they’re Pink

    23 Mar 2014 | 12:01 pm
    The most troubling quote in today’s NYT’s article, “Today’s Girls Love Pink Bows as Playthings, but These Shoot” is “toys that stimulate aggression are healthy for children.” To suggest that literal props like weapons are something to be valued (regardless of what color they are) puts the conversation about the value of play experiences back a few decades.  Yes, kids have aggression and need outlets for expressing it, but making it part of their play diet with plastic weapons is not beneficial.  Most child development experts would suggest art…

To start this trick, you are going to start with a One-and-a-Half mount, except you are going to hit the top string and let the yoyo fall back down into the bottom string. After you do that, you are going to throw the yoyo back up into the top string and into your actual One-and-a-Half mount. From here you are going to swing the yoyo all the way over, just like you would in Buddha’s Revenge. After you do that, you are going to insert…

    The Itch Factor! I think most women in their mid to late 20’s (like myself); can safely say that their birthday parties from infancy to toddlerhood, were not always pleasant experiences. The cake was great, numerous presents made the day, and getting together with family and friends was the best part – but then there was an itch! All those beautiful memories for me were close to being destroyed (I’m being dramatic, but these were my thoughts as a child), by the itchy, scratchy, poky, hot, clammy and extremely uncomfortable dress I was wearing. What’s worse is that my birthday is in…

    My Motherhood Days Motherhood, a precious ten-letter word that scores a perfect ten in my list of must do things.

  • Dress Up With Eight Thousand Miles

    2 Apr 2014 | 5:48 am
    Stories Of Travel And Tailors The 'boho-chic' design quotient has been an integral part of my personality. Growing up in India, I've always had a torrid love affair with fabric,especially printed cottons. Spoilt for choice with the many prints, patterns, textures and colours, I spent a lot of my teenage years courting/ cheating on many tailors - debating, arguing, pestering my way through, to sew my sketches into wearable pieces of clothing. Much pleasure was derived back then in donning unique, one-of-a-kind pieces designed by the self, than picking run-of-the-mill 'branded' standard attire…

    A Child – Your Best Teacher I used to find it hard to believe, when people said ‘Oh, it all happened by accident’. How can you find something you love to do by accident? But one day, the same happened to me. I had a great IT job and was very happy doing what I was doing. When I had a baby, I decided to quit my job. I had no idea what was in store. Initial years of staying at home were not easy. I felt I had never ending postpartum melancholy. Luckily, as my kid grew older, I started enjoying doing things with him. From a Science background, it was natural for me to carry out…
  • Explore Reading With Little Readers Nook

    19 Mar 2014 | 4:38 am
    My love for books I have been an avid reader right from childhood; some would say a bookworm, preferring the company of a good book to almost anything else. I love books set in exotic places and cultures, especially historical that transports me to a different place and time. Even before I became a mother, it pained me to see young kids addicted to gadgets and showing little interest in books. A generous neighbor uncle with a lovely home library had inspired my own love for books and I was keen to pass on this love to the next generation. However, like many middle-class Indians, I did not…
