Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys PenQuarium

Hector Detector


Remain still until the clock runs out. If you can't, the motion sensor toy detects your movement. It also makes wisecracks to distract you. "Watch out! A big spider is about to crawl up your leg!"

Makeup Mindy


The doll comes with a blow dryer that magically changes her hair color, and a beauty tool that, when chilled, adds color to her lips and nails.

Finger Forces

Tiger Electronics

Electronic finger puppets are fighting action figures with built-in sound effects. Choose from Pokemon, Star Wars and Batman characters.

Jungle Jam

Endless Games

Be the first to grab the totem pole when an opponent's turned-up card matches yours. It's not easy. There are confusing similarities with the cards.

Talkin'acha Communicator
