LEGO has released its limited-edition Back to the Future Delorean Time Machine set, and we are happy to confirm it’s exactly the sort of nostalgia overload for which you were hoping.
The kit is beautifully made and presented, with a wealth of unique parts, details, fixtures and innovative construction techniques.
Taking about an hour or so to build, like the best Lego kits it reveals itself slowly over time, not fully coming into view until the final brick is in place. It’s also presented alongside a lovely heavy-paper book, with words from the kit’CuuSoo creators, the Lego engineers who took it to production and the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Most serious game board fans have heard of Richard Garfield, designer of the famous collectible card game Magic : the Gathering.
With KING OF TOKYO, Richard Garfield offers us a crazy game for 2 to 6 players in which you will be able to play mutant monsters, gigantic robots and other monstrous creatures, all of whom are happily whacking each other in a joyous atmosphere in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.
In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 destruction points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.
Lego Minecraft is one of those perfect themes. The two come together to create some of the best Lego sets of all time. The Lego Minecraft Micro World set is easily one of the best selling Lego sets of last year. Often selling out of stock once the set had been replenished. Lego has noticed, and has been continually “reprinting” the original Minecraft set.
Now Lego has officially released new sets in the Minecraft theme. Making this the first CUUSOO project to graduate into a full theme.
The new Lego Minecraft: The Village, and the original Lego Minecraft: Micro World, are available at Turtle Pond Toys.
There are several beautiful doll houses available from PlanToys:
Clockwise from top left: Green Dollhouse w/ Furniture, Chalet Dollhouse w/Furniture, Terrace Dollhouse, and the Tote & Go Play House.
There are several beautiful PlanToys dollhouses available at Turtle Pond Toys. Made responsibly in Thailand with natural, preservative-free rubberwood, these dollhouses are made with preservative-free ruberwood, creating a completely organic wood ensuring that toys are completely non-toxic. Combine this with the use of water-based dyes, inks, and organic glues each of these toys are completely safe, durable, and good for the environment.
PlanToys Chalet, Take-Along Playhouse, Green Dollhouse with Furniture, and the Terrrace Dollhouse are each unique, and each offer a wonderful way to expand a child's imagination. We also carry PlanToys families, furniture and accessories that are ideal for any one of the homes available.
One of the fun things about running a toy store is that there is so much out there and there is always something new! We've noticed over the last few years that there is a growing interest in strategy games geared to teens, young adults .... and older adults too... So we have decided to seriously expand our strategy game section in our Dundas and St. Catharines stores. We invite you to come take a look!
The most highly anticipated game this year appeals to two fan bases: the fans of Star Trek and the fans of Catan: yes, it's Star Trek Catan and we just got it in last week. Hint: use the coupon above when you come to buy your copy! Star Trek Catan dives into another dimension as players build, trade, and settle "where no one has gone before!" Take the challenge on the final frontier: build star bases and outposts to strongarm resources from bountiful planets. Take charge of your starship fleets and create supply routes, blazing the way deep into space. Keep a keen eye on your resources. Manage shortages by trading with Federation neighbours and opponents. Venturing too deeply into space, your adversaries can be pushed off route, so you can become the Federation's most cherished hero!
Here are some of the other games you will see on our shelves: the Munchkin series dungeon adventure mega-hit card game, The Fluxx series (the original, Monty Python, Zombie, and Star) where the cards make the rules, and Lords of Waterdeep which some are calling the new Settlers of Catan. There is also Killer Bunnies, a nail-biting adventure where you might have to "hurt" some bunnies to come out with the winning carrot, as well as the tactical ship-to-ship combat game Star Wars X Wing game. Rounding out the list but definitely not ending it are the futuristic Android Netrunner and the visually stunning Forbidden Island, where players need to work together on a do-or-die mission to capture four sacred treasures.
The creative minds at Playmobil have come up with some fun new themes to stimulate your child's imaginative play.
The main set of the new PopStars! theme is an interactive stage that allows children to incorporate their favourite songs into their play. The Stage combines classic Playmobil plastic figures, dressed as pop stars of course, musical instruments and a stage with MP3 compatibility. Children can set up the stage, and then imagine their Playmobil pop stars playing a concert by connecting an MP3 player to the enclosed cable and blasting out their favourite tunes. Also available in the theme are a very serious-looking tour bus, a keyboarder, and a band.
Some other Playmobil favourites this year are the Hotel, the School Bus, and the new Airport.
And of course don't forget to get your Playmobil Advent Calendar! This year's themes are Dino Expedition, Forest Animals, Pirate, Police, Pony Farm and Princess
The Rainbow Loom has arrived! We're pretty excited about this new and super-popular bracelet making kit! We also carry packages of extra bands in many different colours.
