DJI’s Super-Fast Robot Car Is an Absolute Blast

The DJI Robomaster S1 is the childhood toy I always wanted. Actually, it’s way better than that. Compared to junk like the Tyco Rebound I had in the 90's, the Robomaster S1 is faster, more sophisticated, and thanks to its Mecanum wheels, much more nimble than anything my tiny kid brain could have even imagined. And that’s before you consider the Robomaster’s built-in camera, dual blasters, and its programmability. Only there’s a cost to all this, and with a base price of £500, it’s a big one. So is it worth it? Read More >>

Now You Can Build Your Own Windows 2-in-1

Slapping the term STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths) on a toy, even one with questionable educational value, has become a popular way for companies to convince parents a product is worth buying their kids. That’s rarely the case, but amongst all the noise there are a few companies producing toys that can genuinely help foster a child’s mind and make learning enjoyable, including Kano, whose DIY computer kits have been upgraded to full-fledged PCs running Windows.

A 3,120 Piece Lego Jurassic World T-Rex is Coming This Month

Jurassic World has been a popular range for Lego for some time, but up until now all of its included dinosaurs have been nothing but plastic toys. The sets have been great, but they've been more aimed at younger builders; more playsets than the kinds of things we grown-ups like to build and put on display. That's all about to change with the latest Jurassic World set revealed: Lego Jurassic Park T.Rex Rampage is a 3,120 piece model including a buildable 69cm long Tyrannosaurus Rex and the iconic Jurassic Park gates that are nearly half a metre high.

I Wish Lego’s Beautifully Detailed Moon Landing Set Also Included More Accurate Looking Astronauts

July marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission which successfully landed two astronauts on the moon, and Lego is one of countless companies hoping to cash in on the accomplishment with a new 1,087-piece set that recreates the Lunar Lander with an impressive amount of detailing. But I’m a little disappointed the included Lego minifigures look like astronauts transplanted from a futuristic sci-fi movie. Read More >>
