Review: Long Foam Stick (LFS)

From Poundland. I refuse to state the price.

It's long, it's made of foam, and it's a stick. What more is there to know?

The LFS is the type of thing you give to the children more out of curiosity to see what they do with it than anything else. Stripy had a few ideas...

Something to do with Ben 10 and fighting aliens.

Golf was good for a few minutes, but then Stripy realised that it's much easier to just kick the ball.

Review: ThunderCats

Complete cartoon series available for <£20.

With the new version due to arrive in the Autumn, and prompted by the children deciding to get out all the toys, I thought it was time to have a look over the best* cartoon of the 80s.

*As decided by University of Birmingham students in 2000andsomething. 2002? Eep, that's nearly a decade ago. I'm so old :'(

Review: Ben 10 Alien Creation

£5.99 per twin pack from Toys R Us amongst other places.
This is one of those times when you shouldn't rush to judgement with a toy. This review would have been very different if I'd written it 5 months ago.

It's a magical place

Greetings programs!

Indeed I am. 'What's a toyolo... toylolly... What's one of those things?' I hear you ask. Well, the answer is very simple.

Toys R Us are going to send me the children some toys. I play The children play with them and then post here what we thought of them.

See? Told you it was simple.

Review: Cheap Plastic Sword

Costing around ~£2 from most toy shops, the cheap plastic sword (CPS) is an item no home should be without!
