CozyPhones from Wicked Cool Toys

At Toy Fair 2018, we attended Wicked Cool Toys event and we got to see some amazing products. One that really caught our attention was something that seems so simple but very awesome when you dissect it.

We give you CozyPhones the idea is simple enough, a headband with headphones on the inside.

We were given two samples, a cute Unicorn and from the super popular Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol show, Skye!

The earphones are set to a low settings so no worries about your young one potentially damaging their ears and as a headband, it adds a level of pseudo-cosplay elements.

What makes it even cooler is it can be used as a sleep mask at night. The headphones are removable and the mask is washable.

My daughter can’t get enough of CozyPhones, especially when she wears them at night for a sleepmask. We highly recommend CozyPhones to anyone with a young child and assure you they will absolutely love it.

My Arcade Gaming’s Mini Arcade Machine Review

If you love arcade machines or retro gaming, then this is for you. I have first seen this at the NY Toy Fair and i was interested in trying it out. Here is my review of the Micro Player Arcade that is produced by My Arcade Gaming.

Right from when you see the box, you know it speaks retro and something you used to play when you were a kid. I was given the Karate Champ game and there are many other mini arcade machines made by them including Pac-Man, Galaga, Rolling Thunder and much more coming soon. The buttons work great with no input lag at all. You can also detach the joystick from the machine too if you want just incase if you want to use the directional pad. The feel of the arcade is very smooth but also glossy on the edges just like an original arcade machine. The micro machine takes four batteries but you can also use an USB charger since there is a USB port. There is volume control too on the back of the machine and you can even plug in headphones if you do not want to have outside noise. To turn on the machine, there is a button in the bottom front and it is shaped like a coin slot with the “player one” or “player two” button but you do not have to use quarters to play these machines.

This is a great product and you can buy this for your kids during road trips or for yourself to play and collect. The publisher did a great job making this in an age where retro gaming is still in today’s society. I highly recommend for you to go to your local gaming or comic book store to pick this up.
