This looks too good to be true. The prices I saw on their Indiegogo look reasonable for a platform that could be the next great springboard for DIY robot hackers.

Playskool Heroes – Star Wars Millennium Falcon

Star Wars Heroes Millennium Falcon

Star Wars Heroes Millennium Falcon

I was in Target a few weeks ago, and I came across the Playskool Heroes - Star Wars Millennium Falcon. There's is something that really draws me to this particular set. I really like the proportions of the figures and the toys. That's not to say I wouldn't want the full collection of original figures MIB, but that's not going to happen. Plus I can justify these by buying them for my boys for Christmas. Dad always likes to play with the new toys! Shop around to find the best price, Target had this set for $29.79. My affiliate account has the same one listed for $45.99 - which is why I am not including a link for that.

Phineas and Ferb

My 5 year old and I love watching Phineas and Ferb on Saturday mornings. Truth be told, I probably love it more than he does. Phineas and Ferb follows two suburban stepbrothers on summer vacation. Each day the pair devise ambitious, involved plans and inventions to stave off boredom, often bringing them into conflict with their sister, Candace. The series' subplots almost always features the boys' pet platypus - Perry - acting as a secret agent to fight an evil scientist named Heinz Doofenshmirtz.

If you have any of the 5 gazillion Disney channels, you can catch Phineas and Ferb and indulge in some great Saturday morning fun.

Canned Meat Unicorn Plush

Yep! It's as weird as you think. This little gem from the fine fellows at ThinkGeek is the geek answer to SPAM, although SPAM may also be the geek answer to SPAM... er, nevermind.

Here are the deets, as my wife would say:

  • 14 ounces of delicious unicorn meat, canned for your convenience
  • Imported from a small independent cannery in County Meath, Ireland
  • Okay, for real: you can't eat this. It's a dismembered stuffed unicorn in a can.

Take home these 14-ounces of delicious unicorn meat, canned for your convenience Imported from a small independent cannery in County Meath, Ireland. Crunchy horn bits in every bite- an excellent source of Calcium. Tastes like rotisserie chicken but with a hint of marshmallow sweetness. Easily spreadable for sandwiches, hors d'oeuvres, and more. Sparkly meat lends the unmistakable air of class and sophistication to your parties! Unlike other meats, unicorn fat is polyunsaturated and lowers your LDL cholesterol. Not yet approved by the USDA or FDA, but the nuns have eaten it for centuries and they're healthy as horses. Okay, for real: you can't eat this. It's a dismembered stuffed unicorn in a can. The bottom of the tin is easily removable to gain access to the mini dead unicorn inside. No can opener needed!

Unicorns, as we all know, frolic all over the world, pooping rainbows and marshmallows wherever they go. What you don't know is that when unicorns reach the end of their lifespan, they are drawn to County Meath, Ireland. The Sisters at Radiant Farms have dedicated their lives to nursing these elegant creatures through their final days. Taking a cue from the Kobe beef industry, they massage each unicorn's coat with Guinness daily and fatten them on a diet comprised entirely of candy corn. As the unicorn ages, its meat becomes fatty and marbled and the living bone in the horn loses density in a process much like osteoporosis. The horn's outer layer of keratin begins to develop a flavor very similar to candied almonds. Blending the crushed unicorn horn into the meat adds delightful, crispy flavor notes in each bite. We are confident you will find a world of bewilderment in every mouthful of scrumptious unicorn meat.

So.. there you have it, well go here, and you can have it.
