expiredMattel’s Ker Plunk game is great to get kids around the table & playing together for $7

Amazon offers Mattel Games’ Ker Plunk for $6.99 as an add-on item. This means it ships free in orders of $25+. Regularly around $11 or so, Walmart has it listed for closer to $8 and this is a match of its all-time low. I played Ker Plunk as a child and it’s a great game to get the kids off video games and laughing around the table. Rated 3.8/5 stars.

Generally speaking, Toy Fair New York is dominated by new hardware from the biggest toy manufacturers in the world. LEGO, Star Wars, Mattel, Hasbro and others have all shown new building kits, characters and STEM sets. But now it’s time to look at a new escape room-style board game.

After making the rounds in the crowdfunding space last year, and then finally being picked up by Mattel shortly thereafter, Escape Room in a Box: The Werewolf Experiment is now ready for prime time. The unique board game is taking cues from the increasing popularity of those physical escape rooms popping up in a town near you. expand full story

Virtual reality (VR) is no longer an experience reserved for science-fiction movies or training for technical jobs. This technology has seen significant strides in recent years that now allows consumers to have greater access to VR products. This growth has been spurred by companies like Oculus, which has put significant resources into developing consumer-focused products.

Now, Mattel has joined in on this trend to remake its classic View-Master toy into a smartphone-connected virtual reality headset. Make no mistake, this is not the plastic viewfinder you enjoyed as a kid. This updated View-Master, first announced in February, includes top-of-the-line content from National Geographic and others. Trust us, this is guaranteed to hit everyone’s Christmas list this year.
