Fun & Games

Subwing

Nothing bogs down a day in the water like the inability to fly under the waves like Jason Mamoa in gold tights. Subwing solved that problem for us mere-mortals by creating a tow system that allows you and your bud to pull Atlantean acrobatics and corkscrews with ease. Just keep an eye out for the Kraken. πŸ™

Lego Stranger Things: The Upside Down

Hop on your bikes and join Eleven, Hopper, and the boys as they take the fight to the Demogorgon. 🌸 Building a parallel reality in Lego probably won't open any portals to dimensions unknown and terrifying. Probably. 😈

Building Block Tape

Building block tables are so limiting, don't you think? What if you and your pals want to build a tower...sideways? Or upside down? Or whatever direction Willy Wonka was always ranting about? Slantways! Blocks are about the freedom to create whatever, however you want. So slap up this tape and take your creations to the sky! Or better yet, the walls!

Custom Pez Dispenser

Ennoble your closest friends with that most functional of toys: the mighty Pez Dispenser. Relive cherished memories of Halloweens gone-by by stuffing their plastic faces with enough sweets to literally and figuratively fill them to the brim. Handsome, delicious, and utilitarian; how many toys can claim that? πŸ˜›

James Bond's Lego DB5

Ah, the dapper Aston Martin DB5. The only car handsome and fast enough to satiate Connery's rakish Bond.

Oozing style and sophistication are not things one might typically associate with a lego set, but 007 never was one for taking the road most traveled. It features a revolving license plate, front wing machine guns, and working ejector seat. Who says Legos are just for kids? 😏

Bezzerwizzer

Take Trivial Pursuit, add a dash of machiavellian wickedness, and you're left with this game of intelligence and subterfuge. Answer trivia questions to move your piece along the board, or your (former) friends' pieces back. 😈

Nothing like a little healthy competition to prove who is the greatest bud once and for all!

Nintendo Switch

Do you remember the dark times? When consoles only packed one controller into every box and slowly edged out split-screen, forcing buds to game in *gulp* separate homes? 😰

Fear not, companion. Never before has it been so easy to game with a bud. One controller is for punks, so the Switch demands co-op play by packing two into its diminutive packaging. Nintendo, we're not worthy! πŸ™

Custom Sound Wave Poster

Everyone has a favorite song, and if they tell you they don't, they're lying. If your pal falls into that secretive category, ask yourself: what makes the most sense for their sound wave pinup? Are they a saccharine lover of The Cult's "Rain", or do they prefer the bombastic bravado of The Stooges' "Search and Destroy." Us? We're Vengaboys "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom" till the end. πŸ€œπŸ€›

Secret Hitler

Anyone familiar with party games Mafia or Werewolf will immediately recognize this fast-paced game of deception and betrayal. Set in 1930s Germany, players are assigned secret roles - liberals or fascists - by way of envelope, and must kill off the Nazis among them before it's too late. Lies and duplicity are encouraged. Nothing says a strong friendship like game-night treachery!
