Players build their own Paths without opponents steering them in the wrong direction — or off the board. Tsuro is the quick-playing game in which directions can change as easily as the game plays. The rules are simple: Players place their stones, select their tiles and attempt to build a safe Path for their journeys. The Paths of other players cross and connect, so the choices made affect all the journeys across the board. Tsuro is recommended for 2 to 8 players. The game includes a game board, a Dragon tile, 8 markers and 35 playing tiles. Launch date: October 2005. (previously distributed by WizKids)

Designed as an alternative to training wheels, the Gyrowheel senses imbalanced riding and recenters the bicycle once it begins to wobble. This effect is accomplished by an interior disk that spins independently of the wheel to stabilize the bike even at very low speeds. It installs quickly with a wrench and has a simple on/off button, three stability settings, rechargeable batteries, and light and sound indicators. The 12" Gyrowheel is available in black and white.
