Tomodachi Life
Smallest Thumbs’ Point of View

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 10th, 2014

Back in June, Thumber Se├ín O’Sullivan spoke very highly of Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life for the Nintendo 3DS. Since then, Smallest Thumbs has taken the game for a spin and really enjoys it, hinting that this game might be a great choice for kids with a 3DS that are looking for an experience that steps out of the usual formula that seems to make up many games for children.

Smallest Thumbs has a soft spot for My Little Pony toys, so when Hasbro send us one the My Little Pony Feature Twilight Sparkle Pony to write about, you can imagine how stoked she was. I’m not sure how long the reverie lasted, as a love/not-quite-love relationship has developed with this particular toy; but she likes it on the whole and thinks that your kids may like it too! Read on.

Hot Wheels Car Maker

When I was a kid, I loved playing with dinky cars. I could spend hours playing with Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars, combining them with LEGO and wooden blocks to make my own little city. The only thing that I didn’t really like was that I couldn’t have a car that looked exactly the way that I wanted – I was forced to go with whatever was on the rack (that most closely matched my idea of a perfect car). Well now, Mattel has created a neat way to cater to those who crave customization with the Hot Wheels Car Maker – and they sent it over to us to try it out!

Polly Pocket Wall Party – Mall On the Wall

By Jorge Figueiredo - December 19th, 2013

ppocket-1

Mattel’s Polly Pocket line is pretty popular with kids (I have seen young girls and boys playing with these – but definitely more gals than guys) most likely due to the bright colours and the cute designs. One of their latest lines are a series of playsets that are to be mounted to the wall. It’s an interesting mechanic, and allows for some interesting possibilities, especially if you purchase more than one (and link them together). Smallest Thumb and I tried out the Mall On the Wall playset that Mattel sent our way, and we have a few things to say about it.

Aside from having one of the longest titles in a long time, this article is about one one of the new Kre-O sets that we were shown at Fan Expo this year. Hasbro was nice enough to send us one to demo and write about. Smallest Thumbs and I put on our construction hats and got to work. This year, Hasbro changes the game somewhat with their new “Sonic Motion Technology”. What’s that, you ask? Well, read on!

Smallest Thumbs shifts back to dolls again in this latest post about holiday gift recommendations. This time around, we turn to an old Mattel favourite that has had a Christmas collectible version every year. Of course, I’m speaking of the juggernaut of the fashion doll world: the one and only Barbie! The Barbie Collector 2013 Holiday Barbie Doll is a doll that took Smallest Thumbs’ breath away – but not for the reasons that you might think.
