While at Toy Fair, I visited Uncle Milton, who makes the Marvel Science and Star Wars Science toys. I’ll admit that, outside of those two lines, I didn’t really have much familiarity with their products and saw some really cool stuff. Here’s a few things that caught my eye during my visit.
Star Wars Science Force Lightning Energy Ball: Like Yoda or the Emperor, you can harness the power of force lightning! Ok, it’s a plasma ball….but who doesn’t love a plasma ball?
Marvel Science Captain America Shield Trainer: With this toy you set up various blockades and barriers on an activity board and, using Cap’s shield, try to knock down a target. This is a fun way to teach kids about angles and how things rebound.
Marvel Science Transforming Hulk: Bruce Banner always said you wouldn’t like him when he’s mad, but that’s also apparently true when he’s wet. With the Transforming Hulk toy, you immerse him in water and he grows to four times his original size and busts out of the vault that’s restraining him.
Torch In My Room: This wall mountable torch adds a fun flickering ‘flame’ to any room…and when there’s adventuring to do – you can remove the torch from it’s wall mount and take it with you. It would make a great night light!
Screechin’ Squirrel Whirler: This is a balloon powered, glow in the dark, noise making copter.
Dino Hunter UV Night Vision Goggles: The goggles let kids see the marks from an ‘invisible’ ink pen – and with the included dinosaur foot stencils – parents can mark the tracks of a dinosaur and send their kids off on an adventure. I would have loved something like this when I was a kid.
