Tech Culture: I got assaulted by Marshmallows at Toy Fair 20162:44 /
Who says you're too old to play with toys? Most people. But I decided to stop listening to reason and let loose at Toy Fair 2016. Watch as I check out booths from NECA, Coleco, Marshmallow Fun Factory, Bleacher Creatures, Dark Horse and Stickbot.
[MUSIC] Hey, it's me Jeff. I am here at the toy fair 2016. They got all kinds of toys for little kids and big kids. I'm a big kid. They got to have some toys for me right. [MUSIC] Here was something that I thought was really cool. This is Stikbot and it is a stop motion do-it-yourself animation system. You can buy this little kit that comes with a green screen and little figures. And it can teach you how to make a stop motion animation. It comes with an app. You upload that and put it up on YouTube for people to comment on it or do whatever you want with it Start at $25 dollars. [MUSIC] But check out the Marshmallow Fun Company, they've got a marshmallow blaster and a marshmallow bow and arrow. Cheetah Bow and Mallow, it's like a bow and arrow, but it's a bow and mallow. It shoots tiny marshmallows. They're fun and they don't hurt. And you could eat your ammo. I'd like you to attempt to shoot one of those into my mouth. Is that okay? That's okay, yeah. And if I choke? I know CPR. She knows CPR. [NOISE] [MUSIC] This is the marshmallow blaster. It shoots a marshmallow 50 feet in the air. I'm gonna shoot it up and try and catch it in my mouth. Ready, set. [NOISE] Guess what? Coleco is back. They've got the Coleco Chameleon, a brand new platform for video games honoring the 1816 bit generation. They want people to develop new games for this console. It doesn't connect to the internet. Nothing fancy like that. It's going to go for $150. But first they need Kickstarter funding and that starts February 26th. I also went to the Bleacher Creatures booth and guess what they've got the likenesses of some of the Presidential Candidates. There's Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio. There's no Trump he wouldn't allow the likeness but, I guess Hillary with that hair maybe? I don't know. This is how you should hold the worlds smallest vacuum. This is a booth for naughty people with naughty toys. You can tell by the thong stools. [MUSIC] Then I went by the NECA booth they've got licenses to games and movies we all love. The first thing I had to do was check out the Contra likeness. And check this out, Donatello from the 1990 Ninja Turtles movie. Are you serious? How good does that look? And finally I checked out the Dark Horse booth, they've got Game of Thrones likenesses, really detailed figurines. Honestly I was just pumped because I finally got to see what the names of all these characters are, I can never remember, there's too many of them. [MUSIC]
