Meet the Hand of Adonis
Miley Cyrus, that scandalous little skamp, shared a couple photos on her official Twitter profile that show off an interesting new toy. At first glance, the photos that Miley shared don’t look too risqué right off the bat … but once you realize what it is exactly that Miley is showing off, well, I guess the photos become really … er … interesting. Miley got her hands on a sex toy called the Hand of Adonis that is used for sexual gratification by insertion and as you can see in the photos below, she seems really happy to show off her new toy. The photos aren’t really NSFW and nothing sexual is shown but the item description of this sex toy may not be for “the faint of heart”. More »

I WANT THEM ALL
Last month we learned that The Simpsons is planning to get animated in LEGO form and today we learn that the characters from Back to the Future are getting turned into fun LEGO playsets. As you may recall, I picked up a few LEGO playsets last year and had the best time putting them together so it’s CLEAR that the LEGO corporation wants me to buy more playsets to build. The massive success of The LEGO Movie should do much to help inspire sales but if you just look at how cute Marty McFly and Doc Brown look in LEGO form, I think that’s all the advertisement required. The DeLorean playset was released last Summer but the Marty pickup truck set and the Back to the Future III train time machine set are due out later this year. OMG. I’m not kidding when I say I want them all. I’ve been such a LEGO fan my whole life, I’m such an easy sell on stuff like this. These Back to the Future LEGOs are great, right? Does this look like something you’d like to pick up (er, for your kids)?
And Sarah Michelle Gellar wants them ALL!!!

Sarah Michelle Gellar posted a photo on her official Twitter profile that gives us our first look at what these dolls look like. SMG says she wants to collect them all. I would have to agree. More »
Yesterday we got to see the first official promo photo from the upcoming movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey … today, I got something else fun for all you Fifty Shades fans. The Vermont Teddy Bear Company, famous for their customized and fairly pricey toys, is offering for sale a teddy that is inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey. The 50 Shades of Bear bear has grey fur and comes in a suit, complete with handcuffs and a mask — all for the not so low price of $89.99 (plus s+h) … because the world has really been waiting for a teddy bear that has his own S&M gear. Click below to meet 50 Shades of Bear and see if it is something you want to bring into your home. More »
For the first time ever, and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the magazine, the Barbie doll is featured on the cover and in the pages of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. As you may be well aware, both Barbie and Sports Illustrated have been criticized in the past over their depictions of the female form and over claims that they offer a skewed and unrealistic impression of female beauty. As such, the two entities have teamed up for this new collaboration and have dubbed the promo campaign #Unapologetic. On the one hand, I can absolutely understand how this pairing could make for a genius marketing move (after all, almost everyone is very familiar with Barbie, the SI Swimsuit Issue or both) but, again, I expect that critics will have a field day with this #Unapologetic collaboration. Click below to get your first look at Barbie on the cover of this year’s SI Swimsuit Issue and learn more about this historic pairing. More »
G.I. Joe, the world’s first action figure (ie. doll for boys) turns 50 years old this month and as a big fan of the toy franchise, it is my extreme pleasure to send a whole bunch of LURVE to one of my all-time favorite toys. Now, when G.I. Joe was released 50 years ago, it was a much different toy than the one that I grew up with in the 1980s. The original action figure was a really big doll. The G.I. Joe that I know and love was a much smaller action figure that was easy to play with and collect … plus, it came with an animated cartoon that I loved to watch on TV when I got home from school. Man. Lots of memories. Click below to learn more about the 50th anniversary of G.I. Joe and let’s celebrate the doll, sorry, action figure that every guy (and some girls) loved to play with. More »

Move Over, North West ... Baby Slab done snatched your wig
Remember last month when we learned that North West got herself a toy Lamborghini for Xmas that matches her father Kanye West‘s adult-size Lamborghini? Yeah, well, that ain’t nothing because today we learn that Blue Ivy — the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z — got TWO toy cars to play with for her 2nd birthday. In addition to that Arabian horse that Blue reportedly received for her birthday, she also received a race car and a pink Cadillac SUV. Proud mama Beyoncé posted a photo of Blue‘s hot wheels on her official website … which you can see in full below. More »
The TV Guide
Yesterday was another amazingly fun day here in Tokyo that left me with a full and very happy heart and a much emptier wallet. Adriana and I decided to head out in search of the fun toy shopping that Tokyo is famous for so we made our way to Nakano Broadway, which is a mall that is PACKED with various toy stores (among other stores). We walked in and were met with a wall of Transformers that damn near made me weep with joy. The best part of it all, the prices were extremely reasonable … like, shockingly reasonable. It was all I could do to keep from spending ALL OF THE MONEY IN THE WORLD on everything I saw but, thankfully, I was able to make pretty good decisions on what to buy and lug home with me :) The rest of the day was spent bumming around the Koenji neighborhood where we enjoyed a nice sushi meal that was delivered to us by robots. Last night, we made our way to the bar inside the Park Hyatt hotel to have a drink where the movie Lost In Translation was filmed. All in all, it was a pretty fab day! More »

Yes, folks, North West at just a few months old has a nicer whip than you do. More »
