LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System

LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System - Hello there folks! Previously I have blogged about another Leapfrog toy and that was the Leapfrog Scribble and Write. Leapfrog seems to have several best selling products if not I would not be recommending another one of their products here. They seem to have done pretty well in educational electronic toys. Today’s feature will let you have the leapfrog leapster explorer learning experience! If you think kids or teenagers are obsessed with playing hand held computer or video games and you think that it is not very educational or constructive, you can check out the leapfrog leapster explorer learning game system. Designed almost identical to the Nintendo DS (which was an upgrade on the previous Nintendo Gameboy and Gameboy Advance) or the Playstation Portable, the leapfrog leapster explorer may seem less cool with the kids but it actually serves a much great purpose by improving the brain power of your children. Let us take a look.

To put it simply, the Leapster Explorer Learning Game System is a simple yet useful handheld gaming device that includes preset games and videos. You can even download new features and cartridges. Meant for kids aged 4 to 9 years, they can use the leapfrog leapster explorer learning game to play Leapster Explorer e-books, games, videos and more. Games focused on creativity incorporate art, music, and imaginative play, while school basics games integrate activities for math, reading, writing, and spelling. Some select titles will even help your child learn Children will also learn to sharpen their geography, life skills, and science concepts.

If you think the latest iPad or iPods have touchscreens, you would also be happy to know that the Leapster Explorer also has one. It simply offers endless ways for your children to play and learn with a library of more than 40 games and activities. Leapfrog has also created a safe, online world of learning games and activities known as LeapWorld. This allows children to expand their fun and learning from the Leapster Explorer Learning Game System into the online world. Kids will be able to create their own character, build spaces and expand their learning and entertainment opportunities here.

The Explorer comes with a free Leaplet download. Many people have lamented that it is sad the toy came with only one free download. However you will be able to chose from a collection of games and activities on the LeapFrog site so make your choice wisely. You would however have to connect the Explorer to your computer with the included USB cable and set up an account at the Leapfrog website. There is however more than enough preloaded extras in the Leapfrog Explorer so they should be able to occupy your kids for a long period of time. And you can always purchase additional cartridges and Leaplets once you think your child can progress to other activities.

Check out the LeapFrog Learning Path too which is a online parent account showing the child's progress in the various learning activities. Track your child’s progress in the various subjects and also take note of how much time he or she spends playing certain games. You get to find out which subjects your child is strong or weak in, allowing you to train him in his weaker ones or explore his passions in his stronger subjects. The updating is automatically done everytime you connect the Explorer to your computer. Since the Explorer can hold up to three profiles, it can be used by the whole family!

Included in this toy package is the Explorer Learning System, a quick start guide with CD, a parent guide and of course general instructions on how to use the LeapFrog Explorer. A case is not included, but you can always get the leapfrog leapster explorer case (I have included it below) at a good price. 

Do also note that you can only use LeapFrog Explorer software with the LeapFrog Explorer Learning System. If you want to do more with your LeapFrog Explorer, check out the camera and video recorder attachment, which allows your Explorer to transform into a creative multi-media tool. Kids can take pictures and video recordings with the LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System, edit the material with fun effects, and then email the results to family and friends. These fun projects can also be used in other Explorer applications.

Now I do hope you have enjoyed my leapfrog leapster explorer review. The above link is to the leapfrog leapster explorer learning experience green toy. If your child is a girl, you might want to check out the pink LeapFrog Leapster 2 Learning Game System instead!

Cheap Bakugan Toys Bakugan Dragonoid Colossus

Cheap Bakugan Toys Bakugan Dragonoid Colossus - Now you should know that I am a great fan of cheap bakugan because they are not only fun, but they are some of the best cheap toys that you can buy online as well as duel some bakugan battle brawlers with your friends. And as you slowly build your collection, things take on a bigger twist and you can overpower your opponents easier! I know that some people do not regard them as cheap toys but I can tell you that if they are not cheap toys you can call playing with bakugan a cheap game! Remember last time I told you about the bakugan maxus dragonoid? Seems like there is another major player in town and this bakugan is known as the Bakugan Dragonoid Colossus. Check it out below!

Bakugan Dragonoid ColossusCheap Bakugan Toys

When you hear the word Colossus, I guess you can already guess that this is one of those big bakugan I am talking about. The bakugan maxus dragonoid was one of these blockbuster bakugan toys that resulted in many fans and sales. It was made up of seven cheap bakugan balls that could combine to form a single big bakugan dragonoid. And this is the same for the Bakugan Dragonoid Colossus. Anyways this  cheap bakugan for sale is actually one of the newer bakugans that were released recently so I do not have much information on it yet. I only know that what comes with this bakugan toy package is a one combining electric bakugan (Bakugan Dragonoid Colossus) as well as one Gate Card and one Ability Card. As usual, the bakugan has magnets inside it so that when it interacts with the gate card which contains metal, the bakugan opens up to battle.

So Christmas is coming and perhaps you are looking for some cheap bakugan toys. That is not a difficult task given that you have found my cheap toys online blog. And there are always plenty of cheap bakugan toys for sale. You just need to know where to look, one of the places is to check out my cheap toys blog of course! Anyways if you want to check out other kinds of bakugan accessories, you might be interested to get some cheap bakugan battle gear or cheap bakugan party supplies. Yup that’s right, believe it or not, kids these days even have bakugan themed parties. Celebrating a birthday or maybe graduation, maybe they would want bakugan as a theme.

If you still prefer the old school bakugan battle brawlers as bakugan balls, then you should buy those simple and cheap bakugan toys instead. Besides the earlier Bakugan maxus dragonoid which I have earlier highlighted, you might want to check out the Bakugan Ultimate Weapon Exclusive Deluxe Figure Dharak Colossus. The Bakugan Ultimate Weapon Exclusive Deluxe Figure Dharak Colossus is slightly different from the seven combine into one type of bakugan, because its component body parts cannot be broken down into the normal sized bakugan balls. It actually consists of the one of a kind Darkus Brawlacus Dharak bakugan (which I guess you cannot buy from the normal bakugan battle brawler pack) as well as the Smashtor and Riptor 100G bakugans, which combine with the main body to form the ultimate weapon. One metal gate and two Gear Ability cards are also included in this bakugan battle set.

Bakugan Ultimate Weapon Exclusive Deluxe Figure Dharak ColossusCheap Bakugan Toys

Or you could check out the Bakugan Maxus Helios. Now Maxus Helios is a combination of 7 Bakugan that combine to form Maxus Helios. This bakugan is identical to Bakugan maxus dragonoid. All the Bakugan that combines to form Maxus Dragonoid can also be used individually in the game. So if you do not like the bakugan 7 in 1 maxus dragonoid, maybe maxus helios is your kind of bakugan. Whatever it is you want, do enjoy all these cheap bakugan on sale!

You can also check out the Cheap Bakugan Bakubowl ArenaI know some people may be saying that these bakugan toys featured here are quite expensive, but you are buying a few bakugan battle brawlers at a go so if you know how to do your sums it is actually quite cheap!

If I do receive any news of cheap bakugan new vestroia toys, I will definitely inform my loyal cheap toys fans here. See you soon! By the way do check out the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle which will be released soon.

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle | Cheap Harry Potter Lego Toys - I have a confession to make. I know that this blog of mine is about cheap toys online. Well the thing is Christmas is not only coming but the next Harry Potter film (supposedly the second last one but from the last Harry Potter book, because they wanted to create two movies out of the last Harry Potter book) is coming too. This film is titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the next part will be released in 2011. If you are aware, Lego has often made creative and beautiful Lego sets out of famous movies, such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones etc. I am not sure what took them so long but finally Lego will be releasing toy sets from Harry Potter. And the must have Lego Harry Potter toy set to have is definitely the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle! It costs $129.99 but trust me if you are a crazy Harry Potter fan like me, this Lego set would certainly be priceless and hence $130 means that this Lego set costs just very cheap and is definitely a cheap toy to buy this coming Christmas! Check out this Lego cheap toy below!

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (4842)

The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle will only be available on 1 Oct 2010 so if you really want this Lego set you should pre-order it now. Not only will the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle be released, a whole lot of Harry Potter Lego will be too. This includes the following sets which are priced at a mid range level, such as LEGO Harry Potter Hogwart's Express (4841)LEGO Harry Potter The Burrows (4840) and LEGO Harry Potter Hagrid's Hut (4738) which cost $79.99, $59.99 and $39.99 respectively. If you are looking for even cheaper priced Harry Potter lego sets, you can check out the LEGO Harry Potter Quidditch Match (4737) and LEGO Harry Potter Freeing Dobby (4736) which cost less than $20! Now that is what I call some cheap Lego and branded with Harry Potter to boot! Once the Lego stocks are released on 1 Oct 2010, the prices at Amazon will definitely go out so it would be smarter for you to pre-order all these Lego before it is too late!

Why I decided to promote the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle is simple because it is a cool a really cool Lego castle set. I have had plenty of fun constructing Lego sets in the past and I think having your own Lego Harry Potter castle is as good as it gets. Remember last time when Lego had those pirate sets that came with the governors castle? Yep I had some of those including the pirates ship but I bet Lego do not sell those sets anymore. Maybe someone would have been smart enough to buy a set and not open it till now. They can then try to sell the set on eBay and I can guarantee that they are going to make a profit. You know, I think so many people are going to pre-order this LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle that on October first they may run out of these sets. Some people may start selling their sets on eBay at really high prices, so the cheap toy which you have bought now would be worth very very much more. Another tactic would be just to buy this LEGO Harry Potter Castle and keep the set intact without opening it. I can tell you that a few years down the road, people would be willing to pay a high price for an original open set. Trust me on this! You could make some spare cash selling your cheap toys on eBay!

Anyways guess I have digressed a little. Let me go into more detail of this cool Harry Potter Lego set. If you are a fan of Harry Potter, you will know who Lord Voldemort and the Dementors are. You can replay your favourite scenes in Harry Potter now that you have got some Harry Potter lego. You would be happy to know that this Lego Hogwarts castle includes Harry Potter, Hermione Grange, and 9 other characters which are exclusive only to this set, including Lord Voldemort, Albus Dumbledore, Professors Snape, McGonagall, and Flitwick, Argus Filch and his cat, Mrs. Norris, and 2 Dementors. Now you know why I am asking you to buy this Harry Potter Lego set, right? I mean Lego might release more Harry Potter lego sets in the future, but right now, certain characters and figures will only be available for certain sets.

So now do play out the battle between Voldemort and Harry and get Dumbledore to assist him, while McGonagall and Flitwick try to keep things under control at back at the castle. Be intrigued at this castle which also includes Dumbledore’s office with sliding stairs, the Slytherin and Gryffindor common rooms, the Restricted Section of the library and the Great Hall decorated in Slytherin and Gryffindor colors. These are the details you can get only with a  Lego toy. Dumbledore’s office even features the Sorting Hat, Gryffindor’s Sword, a Basilisk fang in addition to the secret sliding stairs! You can also find Tom Riddle's book hidden in the Kinght's armour and explore the Gryffindor common room which features the fireplace with Sirius Black's face! All these details might seem foreign to you if you do not follow the Harry Potter series but I can tell you that this Hogwarts castle Lego set seriously packs a punch and will blow fans away. With over 1,290 LEGO pieces, only serious Lego collectors should apply.

If you are a Harry Potter fan and know nothing about Lego, it is time that you become a Lego fan as well. It is not too late to buy the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle, please pre-order it before stocks run out. Christmas is coming soon and this would be the best gift to give to a Harry Potter fan this Christmas. I say again this is the best gift to give to a Harry Potter fan this Christmas! These good deals and more only from the Cheap Toys Online Blog, bringing you the latest and newest toys to come to Earth!

Squinkies Toys - Cheap Squinkies Toys

Cheap Squinkies Toys - Have you heard of the latest craze? If you remember last year there was this craze for Zhu Zhu Pet hamsters. This was also featured on my cheap toys online blog (well actually most toys featured on my cheap toys online blog end up selling like hot cakes if you know what I mean!) Anyways there is a new craze in town and this toy goes by the name of the Squinkies. So you are going to ask me what are Squinkies, right? Well this will all be explained in this post. If you also want to know where to buy Squinkies, you have also come to the right place! I do hope that you support my blog and buy these adorable Squinkies through my website. Now back to business, check out this cool new Squinkies bubble pack series one!

Squinkies Bubble Pack - Series OneCheap Squinkies Toys

Each Squinkies bubble pack comes with 16 squinkies toys from the 8 different groups so you would not know which squinkie you will get till you open the pack. Each Squinkies Bubble Pack does come with a booklet to identify your squinkies though. The Squinkies Bubble Pack Series One comes in blue plastic bubbles and includes the following:

3 kittens
3 puppies
3 babies
1 pony
2 friends
4 Surprise Squinkies

So what are Squinkies toys? Squinkies Toys are the new squishy squashy thumb sized cute little figures that come in plastic bubble casing similar to gumballs. The Squinkies toys are come under different categories such as babies, friends, kitties, puppies, pets and ponies which are grouped into eight different clubs. These clubs are the hearts, crown, snowflake, butterfly, star, diamond, moon, sun and flower clubs. Each Squinky toys bubble set comes with 16 squinkie toys. There are a total of 189 squinkies to collect, including animals like pigs, frogs, monkey and elephants. They are made by Blip Toys, who also make Whimzy Pets. Blip Toys’ focus is to develop innovative new products that appeal to both boys and girls. While this Squinkies game appeal more to girls, I believe there will be boys who would be interested in collecting them all as well!

So inside each bubbly gumball case, there is a squinkies toy hidden inside to surprise your child. Each of these squinky actually has a code number, just like each and every Pokemon has their own number in the Pokedex. There are hundreds of Squinkies toys to collect and currently there are six Squinkies Bubble Packs on sale. There are also some squinky accessories in the form of Squinkies playsets and a Squinkies carry case that you can purchase too. More details on these sets later. Just know that these are cheap toys!

If you have been watching the television commercials, you would have realized that there is a massive advertisement campaign targeted at kids to buy squinkies toys and games. Though in the advertisement, the squinkies go squink or squik when you squeeze them, there are reports the ads you can hear the toys go squink when the kids squeeze them, some reports say that this is not true. So some kids are actually disappointed because they don’t get to hear and experience this cute sound. As for the use of the squinkies, I guess it is more for fun and there is not much of a practicable use for it. Well you can use Squinky toys as pencil toppers, as charm on the Squinkies surprise bracelet or as play toys. I guess your children would be more interested to own some squinkies simply because it is a fad and everyone has them. Since it is so cheap, you might as well buy some for your kids. Besides, you can use the Squinkies toys as rewards for jobs or school work well done. I will also explain more about this later. If you love Zhu Zhu Pets Cheap Toys, I am sure you will love Squinkies Cheap Toys too!

So where can you buy Squinkies? As mentioned, the best thing you could do would be to buy the squinkies off my blog here and I am selling through Amazon. You can also get them from Target. Squinkies are sold in Bubble packs containing 16 Squinkie Toys or Squinkie Play sets which include different Squinkie Toys. Check out the various play sets below. The most popular one would be the Squinkies gumball surprise playhouse, as shown below.

Squinkies Gumball Surprise PlayhouseCheap Squinkies Toys

The plus point of the Squinkies gumball surprise playhouse is that parents can use it to teach kids to save money or to reward them. This gumball machine is coin operated therefore in order for your child to obtain a new Squinkies Toy, they would have to insert a coin just like the ordinary gumball machine. Kids who have done well in exams or did their homework can be given a coin to get a new Squinkies. Parents can then buy more Squinkies to top up the gumball machine as and when required. When kids see those toys inside the transparent gumball machine, they will work so hard to earn some cash from you! Don’t forget you can get them to save money too by doubling the gumball surprise playhouse as a coin bank! 

There are other Squinkies playsets and accessories, each costing less than $50 (the accessories cost less than $10) so do check them out.

So if you have to know where to find Squinkies, it is easier buying them online instead of hunting them down at the stores because many of them are already sold out. As Christmas approaches, I have a feeling that the demand for these cheap toys would accelerate exponentially so if you are thinking of buying them for Christmas as gifts to others, I would suggest that you do it soon! Do keep in mind that the recommended age for children and kids to play with Squinkies toys is 5 years due to the small size of the toys which can be a choking hazard for toddlers and babies

I hope you have enjoyed my Squinkies review. I can only say that these are very very cheap toys and if your kids love collecting and tiny toys then it may be worthwhile to get them some since there is a craze going on. You wouldn’t want your kids to be left out of this fad and they may start hating you for not getting them this cheap toy. Besides, you can use the Squinkies as a reward system to get your children to achieve the things you want them to achieve so I say that there is value in this toy.
