Magic Expanding Toys

Who needs class A drugs when you can freak yourself out with these Magic Expanding Toys.

£3.99
Waboba Extreme

This brilliant invention is what larking about in water was invented for. Seriously, watch the little video and you'll understand.

£4.95
Labyrinth Puzzle

We haven't named this the 3D Labyrinth Puzzle for nothing. There may not be a Minotaur lurking in there, but this puzzle is so skilfully designed - and nigh on impossible to crack - that it had us puzzling over it for hours.

£5.95
Craptrumps

Craptrumps rocks. Infinitely funnier than Top Trumps and considerably less nerdy - why would you want to play anything else?

£7.95
Airzooka

The ultimate in air defence weaponry. Utterly stupid of course, but GALACTICALLY more un-put-downable than a Jeffrey Archer novel.

£9.95
Chrome Tangle

The Tangle is the most utterly compelling desk fiddler you're ever likely to have on your desk or in your hand - you just can't put it down.

£9.95
Rhythm Sticks

If you've ever played air drums (that's everybody, isn't it?) then these are just the best things ever - really, ever.

£9.95
Groove Glove

Slipping-on the Groove Glove is tantamount to "getting down with the homies" or so we are assured by sniggering colleagues.

£9.99
Phlat Balls

Is it a ball, is it a flying disc? No! Well yes, it's both, and Phlat Ball is the best selling outdoor toy in Australia.

£9.99
X-Ploda Roulette

Xploda is the type of game that puts your heart in your mouth, though not in a Hannibal Lechter way. It's a bit like Russian Roulette, except that the bang at the end isn't terminal unless you suffer from a dodgy ticker.

£9.99
Bananagrams Game

Some games are just inherently addictive, and Bananagrams is a class A addictive game.

£14.95
Rubik's Revo

The original Rubiks cube was in itself a revolution and now come up with another, the Rubik's Revolution

£14.95
Shockball

There's nothing quite as nerve-wracking as playing pass the parcel with a time-bomb, or quite as much fun.

£14.95
N-tropy

Welcome to the ultimate balancing game that knocks Jenga into a cocked hat.

£14.99
Track Racing Grannies

The Gran National is here and the grans are ready for it. A nailbiting track paves the way for a geriatric speedway.

£15.95
Cube World Series

Behold a whole new world. Yes, they may just look like funky little cubes, but inside each one lives a very small person, albeit a two dimensional pixelated one. Nevertheless he's a dynamic, interactive, multi-talented and behaviourally erratic little dude that'll provide you with hours and hours of useless entertainment.

£17.95
Shocking Memory

Just how shocking is your memory? Well here's a very effective way of finding out that's also hugely entertaining for on-lookers.

£18.95
Tantrix Puzzles

If you thought Su Doku was the biggest and most addictive craze sweeping the country, then you have to get your hands on Tantrix.

£18.99
Inflatable Battling Robots

Two pumped up droids with attitude and your mission is to bash your opponent's robot into submission.

£19.95
Polarity

Polarity is a game of extremes, polar extremes to be exact. Now we never expected physics and fun to be one of the same but Polarity is here to prove us wrong.

£19.95
IQ Test

Are you a bit of a boffin? Marked and analysed by professional markers this really is a test of your intelligence.

£19.99
Make your Own-opoly

Monopoly streaks into the 21st Century with a superb range of fun variations on the classic board game.

£19.99
Brain Trainer

We spend a fortune on gyms (which we all go to regularly of course) to get our bodies into shape, yet how often do we give our brains a good work-out?

£29.95
Shocking Guns

Playing cops and robbers suddenly got a lot more serious. Have you got the nerve?

£34.99
Real Swing Golf

All the fun of golf but with none of the traipsing around with an oversized and overweight golfing partner, no sorry, we mean golf bag.

£39.95
SSX Snowboarder

Yo dude, the powder's up. Forget consoles, now you can hop into a virtual pipe, like, for real.

£39.95
Metal Powerball

One of the fastest non-motorised machines in the world! This was the claim made of the Neon Powerball, well now that has been surpassed by the staggering coolth and power of the Metal Powerball.

£69.95
Roboreptile

The Jurassic meets the Cenozoic in Roboreptile, the ultimate cold-blooded robotic predator.

£69.95
Roboquad

The Roboquad is about as wierd and wonderful as it gets.

£79.95
Unicycle

Unicycling, as similar to riding a bicycle as surfing is to macrame.

£84.99
Razor Electric Scooters

With speeds of up to 15mph and a runtime of 45 minutes, these are the hottest electric scooters on the market.

£129
Robosapien V2

The Robosapien, a multi-function, programmable, dancing and jiving robot that looks not a little unlike a Storm Trooper on steroids.

£129
Pocket Rocket

This mini dream machine will zip you about at a mighty 15mph and is an absolute blast to ride.

£199
Robonova I

A new generation has been born. Isn't this just the coolest humanoid robot you've ever seen?

£720
Arcade Table

Possibly the only piece of cool design to come out of the 80's is back.

£1799
