Nintendo Saved My Road Trip

I have just come back from a serious marathon road trip with the spawnlings, and my most favourite part of it all was the Nintendo 2DS. Well, that’s not completely true. The spawnlings were kind of fun as well.   I’ll be the first to admit I had my trepidations. […]

Competition Time: Harry Potter

Ninjamas is just around the corner and the marketing onslaught is in full attack mode. Everywhere you turn, new and shiny toys are being offered as the “ideal gift”. So much geeky goodness. But like many, I can’t justify the HUGE expenditure on myself for SOOOOOO many geeky things. I keep […]


   Kudos to Minion Kellie for telling me about this one.  For a limited time, BBC / Doctor Who (Australia) had a full size Lego TARDIS down at Bondi Beach (Sydney). Isn’t it beautiful? Doubly so- Lego AND Doctor Who. *sniff* I so want but considering the other Lego filling […]

I Want A … Scorpion Chair

I Want… My C64 Back

Do you want to know my ultimate weakness? Well, no. Chocolate is more of a dietary requirement. I’m talking LEGO games. Primarily Travellers Tales on the Wii/Wii U console. I have them all – Batman (1&2); Indie; Marvel, and so forth… All except Star Wars. Because that sucked. Hard. I […]

I Want … A Kid-Size Ecto 1

Harold Ramis has died, and I suddenly have craving for Ghostbusters. Fortunately, we have it on DVD – as any good family should. Methinks movie night this Saturday. But a movie night for the spawnlings doesn’t seem to be enough to honour the comedic genius of Mr Ramis. What other […]
