Sixth Sense by SIXTH SENSE GAMESSixth Sense is a psychological board game for 3 to 8 players, and is based upon perception, not knowledge. A total of 2,500 questions and answers explore players' attitudes about friendship, marriage, religion, work, love and more. The game tests a player’s powers of insight with questions such as: What is the greatest motivator for adults? Love, hate, fear or money. Players attempt to predict how each of the other players will respond. It "taps into the emotional and behavioral characteristics of each player," said Owner Ron Hutchison of Sixth Sense Games. The game has received great reviews, Sixth Sense Games told TDmonthly. (See Review) 6/2/2006 (MSRP: $29.95; Age: 16 and Up)

Blue Man Group Percussion Tubes by TOYQUEST

Blue Man Group Percussion Tubes by TOYQUESTThe strangest group since The Residents, the Blue Man Group has taken to musical toys. The toy is all PVC mixed with cool styling and some electronics, featuring new proximity sensor technology, pre-programmed songs and interchangeable instrument sounds to enable kids to mix and layer music with a simple wave of their hands. The Percussion Tubes model has a slot (the little green drawer on the right) for an iPod, which can play out of the speakers so kids can jam along with their favorite tracks. 6/15/2006 (MSRP: $69.00; Age: 8 and Up)
