Toy Trends

In this podcast, Cathi Bond talks about Barbie Girl, the new virtual home for Barbie, and its place as part of the new trend towards toys having a real presence, and a virtual "Second Life"-esque presence.  Cathi thinks it reduces kids' opportunities for imagination.  What do you think? Meanwhile, Nora Young has a  new outlet for her robot obsession. The i-Sobot, set to come out this Fall, is the smallest humanoid robot for consumers. (via Robots Dreams) Don't you want one, or does it just remind you of Karen Black in Trilogy of TERROR! Forgotten the movie? Take a peek! Check out the video of i-Sobot...holy Uncanny Valley!
