Is This Batman Set LEGO’s Best Small Set?

This review needs to start with a story. Way back in September, The LEGO Group sent over one of their highlighted Batman sets for 2022, the very fun and great build of the batmobile. Unfortunately, that set ended up at a neighbors house who was vacationing in Florida for...months. After being picked up by a relative of the neighbor, it took the very long journey all the way to Arizona and back, before finally landing on my door a few days ago. Almost two months later. So, the hype for the LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown which is only 400 ...

LEGO Galaxy Explorer LEGO Set Review

When I saw that the LEGO Galaxy Explorer had about 1200 pieces in it, I was expecting a fairly decent build, but nothing compared to the sets I've reviewed that had 1000s upon 1000s of pieces. Boy was a I wrong. Earlier this month we detailed sets that would be nostalgic for adults in 2022, and we listed this set as one of them. Now we are here to tell you why it is so good, and why it would make a great gift this holiday season!

Elite Trainer Boxes are the Perfect Holiday Gift

When it comes to beginning your Pokémon Trading Card Game collection, there are really only two places to start if you plan to actually play the game. If you are just going to collect cards, any pack or box set will do. But if you want to play, that is a different story. The starter decks allow for players to get going right away with no effort. But Elite Trainer Boxes give players almost everything they need to start crafting their very own decks

Go to the next Level with Gravitrax Power

I've said it many times before that I think Gravitrax is the best toy currently available on the market. Yes, that is a bold statement, but if assess the amount of money it would cost to buy the Gravitrax sets I currently own, and divide that by how much my kids have played with the toy, it is easily number one. Recently, Ravensburger sent over Gravitrax Power, which adds, well, power! Now my kids can create better marble runs and so much more. This set comes with a fairly high price point, so is it worth it? Let's take a look.

Pony Farm from Playmobil is the Companies Best Set?

When you have the opportunity to review a lot of products from one company, you quickly realize what works and what doesn't. With each Playmobil set I've reviewed, I've generally been really pleased with what my kids and I have experienced. Unfortunately, there are times when a set doesn't quite meet the expectations of myself, and perhaps Playmobil either. Over the last week, we have reviewed two large Playmobil sets, the Wiltopia Animals Care Station and the Pony Farm. We looked at the Animal Care Station last week, so let's take a deep dive on the Pony Farm!

Going Big with Wiltopia – Animal Care Station

We have had the pleasure to look at a number of Playmobil sets over the past two years, but none have come close to the magnitude of the Wiltopia Animal Care Station. With over 350 pieces, getting this set together took a lot of time - in fact, Playmobil even warns parents that assembling the set could take up to 90 minutes! But is all the effort worth it? Is there enough to do in the Animal Care Station to warrant the high price and long build time? Let's take a look!

Dino Rise – Pteradon Drone Strike Playmobil Review

Not every Playmobil set we review is huge, and not every Playmobil set we review is great for multiple kids at once. I do enjoy that Playmobil has these smaller sets, because not only are they a good price, but they are a good value as well. We've looked at a lot of Dino Rise sets in the past, so why not look at another. Here is my deep dive on Dino Rise - Pteradon Attack!
