Get Your Kids Off the Couch and Outside to Exercise – Zamzee Review & Giveaway

Our first walk with the Zamzee activity meters was in a local park. You'd think with all the video games my kids play, that they'd each weigh 600 pounds by now. But if you ever watch Jason play the Wii, you'd see why he actually loses weight playing video games. He just never stops moving! But in general, my kids hate the outside. They're just not into sports and other than drawing mazes on the driveway with chalk, they couldn't care less about breathing in the fresh air. That's why I was super excited to try out Zamzee after I met with them at the recent Blog Her convention in New ...

Ice Age Plush Review and Giveaway

Have you seen Ice Age: Continental Drift yet? My kids have. Weeks ago. And they're still talking about it! Tough not to love Scrat, Manny, Sid, Diego and the rest of the prehistoric gang. I've actually enjoyed all of the movies so far. Great voice cast, nice animation and just all-around fun stories. Of course, all the toys and movie tie-ins are pretty fun too. Right now, if you head over to your local Toys "R" Us, you'll find a special Ice Age destination. These specially designed Ice Age branded boutiques put together games, books, backpacks, toys and more, all tied to the movie. Best part of it all? The new line of ...

Win a $50 Visa Gift Card in the Nivea For Men Giveaway

  On a regular basis, I spend my lunch hour over at the gym. It's right down the road (a 3 minute drive) at a place called Retro Fitness. Pretty cheap gym, tons of great machines, and some of the best power shakes you'll ever drink. I can't get enough of their Pomtini shakes (pomegranate and cherry)! Anyways, since I'm heading back to the office, I always hit the showers first. Don't want to offend any co-workers, right? The gym showers aren't the nicest ones around. They're pretty much bare bones in that they provide a door, a shower head, water, and if you're lucky, some foamy soap. That's it. So I ...

Star Wars Mimobot 8GB Flash Memory Drive Review & Giveaway

"It's a trap!" Yeah, apparently USB drives taste nothing like calamari.I remember back to my childhood when I'd bring over a box full of floppy discs to my friend Chris' house to "trade" various games on the Apple IIe computer. Heck, I think I even brought my floppy drive over at times. Nowadays, you just need a slick little Flash Memory Drive and you can store practically 1.21 gigawatts of data on something as small as your thumb. It's crazy to me. Even more fun, though, is when companies get creative with their memory drives and make them in all sorts of crazy shapes, sizes, and characters. I recently had a chance ...

Lego Batman 2 May Be the Coolest Video Game Ever

"It's Awesome!!!" That's the initial review of Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes from my 9-year-old son Jason. And I pretty much have to agree with him. The Lego video games in general are all-around incredible (the Star Wars ones actually make Episodes I-III not just tolerable, but downright entertaining). The first Lego Batman was fun, but Lego Batman 2 soars to new heights. Not only do you get to play as Batman and Robin, but some of the DC Universe's heaviest hitters join the Lego party: Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Flash, and more! And of course the usual gang of Gotham's Worstest crash the scene. Lex Luthor actually joins up ...
