New and Unreviewed


Here we’ll take a look at some products new to the marketplace – too new to properly evaluate – that are bubbling just under the radar.

Shopkins Season 3

Shopkins Season 3 characters have arrived, all 140 of them. New characters and home-wares are now available international food, hats, and jewelry shopkins, including Roxy Ring, “the rarest Shopkin ever.”

Cost: Varies, but typically ranges from $5-$20

Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10

Nerf has been hitting the airwaves with yet another blaster. In what could be one of the longest toy names ever, Nerf presents the N-Strick Modulus ECS-10, a configurable (battery-powered) motorized blaster. Includes targeting scope, drop grip, and other options. Allows users to customize guns to their own needs. It’s not cheap, but it may be the most customizable Nerf gun ever. Early reviews at Amazon are strong, with a 4+ star rating. If you can’t find this one, it’s pretty similar to the CS-18 N-Strike.

Cost: $45-$50

Toon Goggles

This on-demand entertainment hub for kids is available on smartphones, tablet, TV’s, and the web. It’s currently advertising the service which costs $4.99 per month, and some cartoons are free. Kids can watch from a variety of categories, such as boys, girls, comedy, action, preschool, and educational. Although its current advertising campaign is new, the service has been around for several years, and holds about a 4-star rating.

Cost: Free – $4.99 a month

Sheet Tamer

This As Seen on TV product is said to keep your sheets in place with a tight grip that won’t damage sheets. The product has only had a couple of airings ranging from April 2015 to June 2015. There are virtually no consumer reviews, the website was only registered in February of this year, and the trademark was only updated in June 2015. It’s likely being test marketed, which means that initial reviews may complain of slow shipping.

It looks like a simple and clever design that we hope makes it to full production.

Cost: $10 + $4.95 shipping

Cost: $149.99
