Toys We Wish Were Ours


We at TDmonthly Magazine like toys, and these are the toys we wished they’d made when we were kids. From wraparound Dragons to fearsome fake battles, we think kids’ll get a kick out of these Autumnal offerings. Here’s what the staff thought was cool this Fall:



MSRP: $49.95
Age Range: 8 and up
Gender: Boys And Girls

Mazu Kan is a two-player non-contact battle game. Strap on the Mazu Kan’s chest-plate and wristbands and punch/power attack away. If one opponent doesn't block, the other scores, and the loser’s chest vibrates with excruciating, humiliating ... vibrations.  Knock the opponent’s life-lights out and be victorious.  Use the energy force unit to fight, heal and shield.  In this game, strategy is essential, and only a true Mazu Kan master can be victorious. Chop, punch, block and dodge: everything a real battle has... without the bloody noses and crying home to mom.

The stories in “Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich” are all about monsters and some are about food, too. Count Dracula walks around with spinach in his teeth. The Phantom of the Opera can’t keep the song “It’s a Small World After All,” running through his head, and the Yeti doesn’t appreciate being called Bigfoot. See? Monsters have problems, too. Written and illustrated by Adam Rex. Hardcover, 40 pages.

The melancholy of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic poem is echoed by Ryan Price’s exquisitely grim illustrations in this fifth book of the KCP Poetry series. Originally published in 1845, “The Raven” is narrated by a scholar brooding over his lost love Lenore. One bleak December at midnight, a raven with fiery eyes visits the scholar and perches above his chamber door. Struggling to understand the meaning of “Nevermore,” which his winged visitant repeats, the narrator descends by stages into madness. Hardcover, 48 pages.
