New Lego Range.

Lego News Banner

Lego has recently announced a new range of products. No, it may just be me being an old fuddy duddy, but I thought the idea of Lego was to use your imagination to create a toy you wanted, and to let it loose on the world.

These new releases though seem to be a long way from that... Read on...

All the best wishes from everyone in the Family_Furie. I hope to see you all in the new year, and be prepared for a flurry of new toy and game reviews once the (ahem) kids have finished testing them out.

So all the best for the holidays everyone!

Let the eggman help protect your kids on the PS3 this Christmas

Did you know there is a website dedicated to helping you protect your kids while they use the PS3?

Did you know it's a colourful (if a little bizarre) eggman who does it?

I thought not, but it's true :)

Lots of really useful tips for adding security, parental controls, Trend Micro's PS3 browser security and controls, etc, etc, etc.

An absolute must read if you have a PS3 and children who use it.

Head over to watch the bizarre eggman here:

Rabbit Tragedy

Sadly, last night, I discovered that out two bunnies - Hermy and Izzy - had been attacked by a fox. It's always upsetting when a pet dies, but particularly so when it's so sudden and two of them.

Both rabbits were full of character and lived a happy life. The garden shed (undermined by their burrowing) will certainly never recover.

So it's farewell to the last of the Lop-eared Lagomorphs of Lucifer, or "the evils" as they became known (for their evil and nefarious ways).

Cheap "Thomas" Rheneas and the Dinosaur sets at ELC - Going fast...

I don't know if it's a national clear out, but the Stafford Early Learning Centre is currently selling Brio sets (Rheneas and the Dinosaurs) for a bargain £20!

It's a simple figure eight circuit, but has a "mine shaft" bridge/tunnel section. This little bit of track alone sells for £22 in ELC. So the entire set (down from £60) is well worth it, either as a new track, or to expand existing.

An apology...

I must apologise for no updates today - breaking my promise of adding something new each day. However, it's Madame_Furie's birthday so it couldn't be helped.

I shall leave you with a new classic from The Muppets as a way of recompence.

This may be the beginning of the end you know?

Going, going, go go gone!

Go Go Pets Hamster Shortage!

Have you managed to grab one of these pesky little critters yet? Neither have thousands of others as this years hit toy runs into short supply.

You can always tell there's a problem when a £10 self-propelled rodent is going for over £35 on e-bay! Just like every new band seems to be "the next Beetles", each year we are subjected to "the next Tellytubbies toy shortage".
