The latest tale in the Star Wars franchise is now just months away. We’ve already gotten a first glimpse at what Han and Chewbacca will be up to come May, and now LEGO has unveiled the first of its upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story kits. And what better way to intro the new sets than with Han’s famous ship, the Millennium Falcon. Complete with a majorly overhauled design and exclusive new minifigures, LEGO’s 2018 Star Wars lineup is off to a great start.
Since releasing on Windows PC and PlayStation 4 back in 2015, Rocket League has enjoyed a cult status of sorts amongst gamers. The soccer meets rocket-powered cars title is a hit for its affordable price tag, fun graphics and cross-platform play. After making its way to Nintendo Switch late last year, there are few places where Rocket League’s influence can’t be found.
In a seemingly no-brainer move, the developers behind this popular title have this morning announced a partnership with Hot Wheels. No, we’re not talking about virtual four-wheelers here. Rocket League is getting its own smartphone-controlled version that brings the game to life in a whole new way.

Toys that teach kids hands-on about robotics, science, math, and more are commonly known as STEM toys. A company called Klutz specializes in making educational and STEM toys for kids. The majority of the toys they create also have an extensive how-to component that helps kids truly understand the concepts they’re learning about. These book-based activity kits range from topics like robotics, engineering, circuits and even more. Here are the new kits that will take the stage at Toy Fair next week.
Toy Fair 2018 is set to kick off next week in New York City and 9to5Toys will be on-site covering this year’s biggest news and releases. Before the show kicks off, Hasbro is already detailing one of its biggest toys for the upcoming year. The new Marvel Avengers: Infinity War Hero Vision Iron Man AR Experience is a headset and controller combo that brings kids (adults) into the world of super heroes.
Like other VR/AR devices, your iPhone or Android slides directly into the headset to launch the full Tony Stark experience. A series of markers placed around the room are then leveraged in a unique virtual reality experience.
