@CartoonNetwork’s Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land for the @NintendoAmerica #3DS! @D3Pub

IMG_0117 (640x480)

Regular Show: Mordecai & Rigby in 8-bit Land is the very first video game based on the hit Cartoon Network TV Show. Mordecai and Rigby are trapped inside a video game and must travel through the pixilated land of 8-Bit to find their way out. This hijinx-filled adventure is packed with platforming, space shooting, and old-school top down video game mania, and comes fully loaded with tons of Regular Show characters and jokes.

My son reviews a lot of video games. I put this one here as it is one of his favorites this season!

Super Mario 3D Land Ghost House Building Set @KNEX @Nintendo!


A fun building set, we love Mario, and it has a 3D play aspect. All the components my son needs for fun play!

Nerf N-Strike Blazin Bow! From Hasbro! @HasbroNews


Boys love weapons. I came to grips with that fact many years ago. If my son is going to play with weapons, I am happy for them to have the soft ammunition that is part of the Nerf system.

This years hot item is the bow. It is great fun, and it is now part of our permanent Nerf collection, which is probably up to 10 different weapons at this point.

@Nickelodeon’s #TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Toys



This is an extended family that have been Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans for decades. I am including 2 of the newest and hottest toys out this season.

The Secret Sewer Lair was fun to build, and even for a 10 year old, fun to play with friends. After all we have had the figures from many incarnations from the series over the last 7 years. The Ninja Control Shellraiser is fun because it is an RC vehicle. We did have a different one a few years ago that shot out pizzas!

Side note, my adult nephews still hold onto to their colectibe TMNT toys. This franchise is Hot!

Skylanders Swap Force by @Activision

This 3rd installment in the Skylanders genre is proving to be as popular as the others. The first Skylanders started with a new form of gaming with an attachable platform to the game. The 2nd installment was a new series and story that added Giants to the game play. This 3rd Skylanders is all about the swap: characters can be pulled apart and reformed with a different top or bottom to create new characters with new powers.

And collecting all the characters is almost as big a business as the game itself. I myself have spent hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on all the characters from all 3 games. And will probably contnue to do so!

Disney Infinity Video Game System

The hot new video system from Disney. Using a new platform for gaming, Disney has created different worlds for you to mix and match many Disney characters for hours of game play. Fans can even create their own “toy boxes” that, if among the top 5 of the week, may be added into the Infinity world for anyone to download.

The toy figures are collectible as well. With an almost unlimited amount of Disney characters to draw upon (as long as they keep making new movies!), this game will be hot for many years to come. Additionally, Disney owns the Marvel and Star Wars franchises, when they enter the Infinity world, all bets are off!
