Disney Frozen II Anna Autumn Swirling Adventure doll

As you may know, the new movie featuring Anna and her sister Elsa - Frozen II - has been in theater for a bit now.   And when a new movie from Disney comes out you can be certain that numerous toys will also appear on the shelves at your favorite store. 

So it is not surprising that this Christmas season new dolls based on Frozen II are available.   I have the opportunity to present you one such doll today - Anna Autumn Swirling Adventure doll.

I haven't seen the movie as of yet.   But apparently in Frozen II, Anna's unwavering optimism and perseverance is tested.  She must learn to stand strong even when it feels impossible, and do the next right thing.

This beautiful doll wears an outfit that is black and purple complete with a removable skirt, belt and cape.   If you lift the arms of the doll you will see that the outfit illuminate with a swirling leaf pattern that is absolutely stunning.  I simply love the yellow and red colors moving on the dress. (Why didn't we get that kind of fancy dresses for our dolls when I was younger?)  Her sister Elsa's doll has something similar on her dress where a pattern of snowflakes lights up. (Doll sold separately.)

 


These fun dolls will definitively bring joy to kids as they play with sister duo twinkling together as they journey to new adventures.

The Disney Frozen II  Swirling Adventure Fashion Dolls are available for purchase at your favorite retails store, even on Amazon (Canada and US).

Introducing the new Remote Control D-O Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker


This December a new movie from the Star Wars franchise is coming out - Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker.  If you are like us, you are looking forward to this new Star Wars movie.   And when a new movie of a beloved franchise comes out we all know what it means when it comes to toys - new products bearing the franchise name.

The coming of Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker will also introduce a new droid called D-O.  Thought we do not know much yet about this little droid, we know that he was built by Babu Frik out of spare parts.  He also befriend the Resistance droid BB-8 at some point after the Battle of Crait. 
Coming this Christmas season, your child (or maybe any Star Wars fan in your life) can own his/her own D-O remote control droid.

It will roll forward and backward, performs fun 360-degree spins, and makes expressive droid sounds.  You can control it with the remote control.   D-O can also bobbles its head in any direction - back, front, and side-to-side.
 If you also possess the remote control BB-8 already both of these little droids can go on a wide range of adventures together.

Again this toy is geared for children ages 5 and up.  It can also be interesting for any Star Wars fan in your life. 

The Star Wars D-O Remote Control is available at your favorite store, even on Amazon (Canada and US).

Monopoly Voice Banking

Move over old Monopoly games, here comes a new version this Christmas season - Monopoly Voice Banking -  which allow you to control the game with the power of your voice.
In this electronic version of the game, Mr. Monopoly is the Banker and manages player's money via his top hat. The Monopoly Voice Banking game features lights and sounds, and comes with an interactive Mr. Monopoly banking unit in the form of a top hat. 

This iconic Monopoly top hat is voice activated and the personality of Mr. Monopoly shines as he handles the transactions.  He keeps tabs on player's money and properties so there's no cash or cards to think about. (I suspect that many will like the fact that a banker is not necessary for this particular version of a classic game!)  You simply have to talk to Mr. Monopoly (aka the top hat) and he will respond to you.

For example, press the token's button and say, "Buy St. James Place."   Mr. Monopoly will track the transaction and keeping the game moving.  With the Monopoly Voice game, players will travel more rapidly around the board aiming to be the person ending with the most money and the highest property value in order to win.
The game also got a revamped gameboard with darker colors than the original Monopoly.   I tend to like the darker background as well as the brighter colors on it as it give a more electronic feeling to the game.

Apparently this version of Monopoly will allow to play the game faster as you simply have to speak your decision to Mr. Monopoly and he will manage everything.  This allows you build your properties sets and get the houses and hotels up faster.

The box includes the Top Hat banking unit (including top and brim), the gameboard, four tokens, twenty-two title deed cards, one Get Out of Jail Free card, four reference cards, sixteen houses, sixteen hotels, two dice, and a game guide.

The game was designed for ages 8 and up and will allow 2 to 4 players.  Note that demo batteries are included in the game but you will need to replace them with 3 AA batteries.

The Monopoly Voice Banking game is available at your favorite store, even on amazon (Canada and US).
