Double-Decker Couch Commando

The TV Guide

Last night was a really quite day/night for me. With all the great TV shows that aired last night, I decided to order in and stay on the couch all night. New eps of Survivor, Best New Restaurant, Arrow, Empire and re-runs of The Golden Girls and Sex and the City filled up my DVR faster than I could watch everything so … I had to stay in. More »

These ‘Jurassic World’ Toys Show Us What The Previously Unseen New Dinosaur In The Movie Will Look Like

Meet Indominus Rex

In November we got our first look at the first trailer for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World and, as you may recall, that trailer teased the appearance of a new, genetically created dinosaur that will serve as the big bad in the sequel film. On Super Bowl Sunday, we got to see the second trailer for Jurassic World and altho we got to see a tiny bit more about this new dinosaur, we still didn’t get a good look at the dino will look like in the movie. Today, we get our first really good look at this new dinosaur, Indominus Rex, thanks to the Jurassic World toys that are now on display at the 2015 Toy Fair. Click below to see the toy version of the monster dinosaur that will wreak havoc when Jurassic World opens in theaters in June. More »

The ‘Layaway Angel’ Just Dropped $20,000 At Toys ‘R’ Us

LOVE these stories!

The other day one of my Facebook friends sent me this really great article about Jay Z. It was about how people (including people like me) can be critical of celebrities if we don’t see them getting publicly involved in certain causes. But many celebrities, like Jay Z, are quietly donating, or putting kids through college and we just never hear about it. I love hearing about people who are secretly helping others out, with no chance of being fully acknowledged. But the layaway angel stories ALWAYS get me! An anonymous giver went to a Bellingham, Massachusetts branch of Toys ‘R’ Us and paid off $20,000 worth of layaway items. Click inside for more!

Knitted Moz

The TV Guide

Earlier today we learned that The Smiths (and Nine Inch Nails and others) have been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — which is really great news for fans of The Smiths and Morrissey (like me). Last night, I was happy to find my mailbox stuffed with a parcel that I have been anxiously awaiting for a few weeks now. I ordered a Knitted Moz doll to help raise money for an animal rescue charity and because, well, I wanted a knitted Morrissey doll to add to my collection. He got lost in the mail and I was afraid he’d be deported back to the UK but the US postal service rerouted him to my new address and at last, he is home. More »

North West Plays With Doll Versions Of Her Parents

Yes, of course she does

Baby North West enjoyed a busy week last week, what with her appearance at Paris Fashion Week and, erm, her apparent getting forgotten by her mother inside a Parisian hotel, but today we have a cute little update about North‘s little life. North‘s aunt Khloe shared a photo on her official Instagram profile alerting the world to the fact that little Nori plays with a set of dolls that look like her parents. Yes, folks, North has her very own Kanye West doll … as well as a doll that look like her mother AND a doll that looks like her! Let’s forget the teeny, tiny bit of narcissism here and look at how cute these dolls look like below. More »

Netflix Is Producing A New Animated Series Starring The ’80s Toys The Popples

Everything old is new again

Netflix has announced that they are going into production of a new animated series based on the ’80s toy-line the Popples … which is kinda cool and totally random. There have been many ’80s TV shows/toy lines that have been rebooted for this new generation but bringing back the Popples seems so out of left field to me. Popples, as you may recall, were stuffed animals that could be folded up into fluffy balls and they already had their own animated cartoon back in the mid-80s. I guess Netflix believes the time is right for Popples to make a comeback. Click below to see what the new Popples will look like and find out when the new series will debut on Netflix. More »

50 Cent Gave His 2-Year Old Son His Very Own Mercedes SUV

Lucky lil 25 Cent

Yesterday we saw photos of baby North West carrying around a $1,400 YSL purse but today we learn that she isn’t the only baby baller rollin’ around Hollywood these days. 50 Cent gave his 2-year old son Sire his very own Mercedes ML450 SUV for his birthday. Granted, the kid’s Mercedes is a miniaturized version of the real thing but something tells me that the price tag of this lavish toy is pretty steep. Click below to see the sweet whip that Fitty bought for his son and try not to be insanely jealous of a 2-year old. More »
