If you have aspirations of teaching your child how to play a guitar then maybe it would be a better idea to give him or her real guitar.

Melissa and Doug’s Make-a-Cake Mixer Set

This cute little cake mixer is the perfect pretend toy for a child when they love to cook! With this toy, you can fuel their dreams of baking in a real setting with sturdy wood and beautifully painted flourishes that are a callback to older times when things were almost always wooden!
Who Would Buy It?
This cake mixer set is aimed at kids, mostly due to the make believe setting that it promotes with the toys that come with it, but parents can play along, too! It has a cute little crank on the top which moves the mixer in the bowl with a speed dial on the side, and can be lifted up similar to a Kitchen Aid (but not nearly as pricey). The set also comes with a cracked wooden egg, a loaf tin and pound cake, a pound cake box, butter, a butter knife, and a recipe list.
Things We Like About It?
As it’s made of wood, it is certainly much more of a novelty than the dime a dozen plastic mixers you can find in stores. It is much more durable and can handle a child’s abuse if they decide to do some hardcore baking. Furthermore, the colors are gender neutral, which promotes a healthy idea beyond the case people often make that little girls are drawn to baking because kitchen items are typically feminine things.
Things We Don’t Like About It?
The thing about these kitchen sets is oftentimes if you want more than just a specific kind of product (a mixer, an oven, different types of food) they have to be purchased individually from each other, which drives up the price if your child gets bored of what they already have; however, that’s standard fare and certainly isn’t limited to Melissa and Doug’s products, and will probably never be an exclusive fad.
Is it Worth the Money?
Even if it is a singular set and a little high priced, well-made wooden products are very hard to come by and tell the consumer that it is something built to last and built with care in a world where cheaper production values equals more profit. In addition, the thing sells like hotcakes, so apparently it’s essentially a steal for how much they’re asking for it.
Where Can I Buy It?
Unfortunately, the only available places seem to be Toys R Us and Melissa and Doug’s website, and even in the latter case it was completely sold out and on backorder. On top of that, we couldn’t find anything on Amazon or any other toy sites, but it’s possible that some places could be updating their stock to suit consumer demands.
Final Thoughts
Upon reading the listing of the site, the producers won’t have extra stock available until September of this year, which likely means the toys aren’t made in bulk, which further solidifies the quality that goes into these toys, and kind of explains the price point. They seem to pride themselves on making toys that children can set their minds free with, and this is certainly an excellent toy for the job.

Air Hogs Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone

To coincide with the release of Star Trek Beyond and the 50th Anniversary of the original TV Series Air Hogs has launched the first Star Trek Enterprise Flying Drone.
The drone is based on the NCC-1701-A which is the Enterprise from the movies rather than TV Show.

Who Would Buy The Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone?
The recommended age for this product is 10+
Being the first ever version of the Enterprise that actually flies this will be a must buy for Star Trek fans.  Kids who are just starting to discover Star Trek through the new movies might also be interested in this. For the serious Drone enthusiast this probably isn’t on their radar though some might be interested in the unique design which differentiates it from the typical drones available on the market.

Things We Like About Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone
A lot of thought has gone in to this model to make it look authentic it has 10 different Light and sound functions including a phaser and warp factor sound.
Even though it is longer and sleeker looking than the usual quadcopter it is still based on the same principles, but to get the Star Trek look they have hidden the spinning propellers in the main saucer section of the Enterprise.
Though it doesn’t look particularly durable users are saying that they have crashed it a number of times with no damage.

Things We Didn’t Like About It
If you haven’t used a quadcopter or drone before it might take some time to get used to the controls and will probably result in a few crashes. We would suggest limiting your flying to indoor use at first before venturing outdoors with it. Some reviewers are speculating that it will become a collector’s item so you might want to keep it in nice condition just in case.
Is The Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone Worth The Money?
The price tag is fairly expensive for a quadcopter, you can get drones with built in cameras that work well for the same price. What you are paying for here is the unique Star Trek design and maybe a quadcopter that will become a collector’s item in the future. It also makes a nice display piece. For Star Trek fans or Drone Collectors I don’t see the cost being an issue.

Where Can I Buy The Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone?
Spin Master and their flying RC vehicle Air Hogs range is available in most Toy Shops, collectors and RC Stores as well as big online stores such as Amazon. Amazon is always worth taking a look as you can read the most up to date reviews from genuine users.

Final Thoughts
If you are a serious Trekkie the likelihood is that your mind is going to already be made up regarding the purchase of this Star Trek Enterprise Quadcopter. Those interested in TV collectibles might want to speculate and pick this up as a collector’s item.
We think that Air Hogs have got the design spot on. To see your own real life miniature version of the Starship U.S.S Enterprise NCC-1701A cruising through the air boldly going where no man has gone before is just amazing!
