Onto this Month's Prizes...
Grand Prize: The Customizable Interactive Robot Kit
Made by Erector, makers of metal construction kit toys since 1913, this motorized robot has pre-programmed movements and sounds, bringing the robot to life and making it capable of walking, dancing, and actions common toys cannot replicate. The kit has more than 500 pieces and comes with a battery-powered drill which even newby engineers can use to assemble the robot. The drill doubles as the motor that drives the robots movement and the USB device that connects to a PC for downloading music and pre-programmed movements from the Internet.
1st Prize: Animated Homer Simpson Multi-USB Port
It's completely practical, honest. Plug in with up to four extra USB ports and every time you do, Homer celebrates with a quick spin and his trademark celebratory howl (you can turn off the sound and/or spin action if your office is not hip to Homer humor).
2nd Prize: Doctor Who Action Figure with R/C K9
We love dogs. And we love robots. And when you cram a robot into dog form, it makes us happier than watching an Ewok get pwned by a plasma grenade. Yeah . . . that happy. Whether its Aibo, Muffit II, or Goddard, we loves 'em all. Especially K9. Is it because he's had a few upgrades over the years (both in hardware, software, or the Doctor's physical manifestation)? Or is it because he's the only robot dog we know who can play fetch with a Sonic Screwdriver? We're not sure. But we like him. So there.
3rd Prize: Yoda Slippers
Seek the wisdom of a master in these super-soft, comfy-design plush slippers, each stitched with wonderful 3-D details and authentic colors.
4th Prize: The Bog Monster
A hillarious practical potty joke for big time toilet laughs. Gruesome green latex rubber monster attaches with suction cups under seat and inside lid to remain hidden until lid is lifted. Then-Yikes! Look out! Up and out comes the monster!
5th Prize: Illuminating Car Slippers
Remarkably bright LED lights are triggered by your footsteps and light up the floor 30 feet in front of you; ultra-soft plush style are extra comfortable and cozy warm.
6th Prize: Speed Racer: Mach 5 Mini Radio Control Car
Now you can take the wheel of Racer X's supercharged X9 Shooting Star with this radio-controlled 1:64-scale mini. Part collector's item and part toy, it features easy controls as well as a quick recharging time of less than one minute
7th Prize: The Simpsons - Duff Dice Game
Duff Dice is a fast paced bluffing game. Call forth your competitive spirit and lie, lie, lie your way to victory!
8th Prize: Nintendo Action Figure
Who knows what we would have done as kids with Nintendo Action Figures. Back then, video games didn't have action figures... action figures were reserved for things like movies and bad cartoons. But we can't help imaging the youthful joy of inviting our friends over for an action figure smackdown featuring Yoshi, Darth Vader, Mario and Optimus Prime. Mario would have reigned victorious of course, after jumping on the heads of his opponents and decimating them with fireballs. Now decades later you can fulfill your dreams with these nifty Nintendo Action Figures. Choose either Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Mario, Fire Mario, or Goomba.
9th Prize: Carpet Skates
Low friction can be our friend. Like when (wearing only socks on your feet) you slide across that small bit of smooth tile in your office lobby. But wouldn't it be fun to be able to slide around the rest of your carpeted office? Well, good thing for all of us that those little sliders to move heavy furniture were invented. Because the same guy who thought of those also thought to strap some to his feet. And Carpet Skates were born (true story).
Strap a pair over your office shoes and be ready for a wild ride. They have ridges on the bottom under your toes to help you grip the carpet as you build up speed (and also to slow down). And then, sliiiiiiiiiide! Practice hard and you'll be skating around like you're on ice instead of carpet. Got to deliver a memo down the hall? Why not deliver it in style! So stop walking around your office and start sliding. It's the best way to make a classy entrance (or quick exit)!
10th Prize: The Metallic Red Ladybug Mouse
The USB ladybug mouse by Brando looks just like a real ladybug with a beautiful red body and big black dots. The wheel button can also be used as a third button and since there's no mouse ball, you won't have parts to clean.
10th Prize: Mirror Clock
See at a glance the time, month, date, day, and indoor temperature-and check your hair or makeup. Framed in aluminum, a glass mirror doubles as a clock. Hang it on a wall or use the easel back to stand it on a desk, table, or shelf.
11th Prize: Stress Express Flying Helicopter
When the pressure builds at work, there's only one thing to do: take control, press a button on the hand-held unit, and launch the Stress Express helicopter from your seat. Your spirits will soar and your stress level drop - as you watch the minicopter take a gentle glide around your office or wherever you are. Perfect for exasperated executives, pressured presidents, and tense typists.
11th Prize: Jenga Keychain
Petit Jenga as Key Mascot, packaged in a special collector's edition set of Jenga blocks. This edition was produced in Japanese Jenga mania and is a Collector's Item and should
not be eaten anyway! Just obey your instinct, Jenga Geeks!
12th Prize: Star Wars PocketModel CCG
The best tacticians in the Empire, especially those who led the Rebellion, all have one thing in common. No, not a love of Wookiee Cookies (don't ask). And, no, not a predilection for resplendent robes (Mon Mothma....grrRRrr!) They have all trained at Rondo Boda's Correspondence School of Interstellar Strategy. AND, they have all used PocketModels to hone their ship formations, battle tactics, and hyperspacial pizzazz. Time for you to get the same training, but without having to pay Rondo's slightly inflated tuition.
Each pack of Star Wars PocketModels brings a slice of the movies to your home or office. You'll get up to 8 styrene ships (the smaller the ship, the more you get per pack!) which you can quickly pop out, assemble, and get into position. Suddenly any table top is transformed into deep space. You can play someone even if you each only have one pack, but the real fun is building vast armadas. Not only will you get more ships, but you'll have more tactical options and fire power (as each ship has its own unique quirks). Sure, you can always collapse them again and press them back into their packaging, but that would mean you'd have to stop playing with them. May the PocketForce be with you.
Each pack contains: 4-8 (depending on ship size) random packed PocketModels, 6 Game Cards, 2 Tiny Dice, and full instructions.
