Wow! Stuff expands its Harry Potter offerings with the Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak, which fans of the Wizarding World can use to “appear to disappear.” Using the free Wow! Stuff app and the green screen invisibility cloak, kids ages 8 and up can recreate scenes from the Harry Potter films. Anything or anyone covered by the invisibility cloak disappears when viewed, photographed, or filmed using the app. The other side of the cloak features a detailed pattern inspired by the films. The cloak measures 5 feet and 2 inches in length and is available in either a Standard Version — featuring a detailed pattern and a foldaway smartphone stand — or a Deluxe Version with a more detailed pattern and a tabletop smart device tripod.
ACROSS THE BOARD
Players ages 10 and up can race to the finish line with the handcrafted Horseracing Game, from Across the Board. Available in maple or walnut, the game features a wood veneer board, dice, cards, and 11 numbered horses that players move around the board. With Baseball Game, kids ages 6 and up roll the dice and run pegs around the bases to score a run. Players can keep track of their runs on a dry erase scoreboard that is built into the wooden gameboard. In the one-player game of Solitaire, kids ages 6 and up try to capture marbles until only one remains. This version features a solid wood gameboard and 36 assorted marbles. Farkle is a dice game in which players compete to score 10,000 points first. Kids ages 6 and up choose when to risk points and when to save them. The game comes with a dry erase Horseracing Game score sheet and dice.
THE TOY BOOK | MAY/JUNE 2019 | toybook.com
Tony Hawk Box Boarders, from Hog Wild, are new, boxshaped collectible characters based on real skateboarders. There are 16 famous skateboarder figures from the Birdhouse crew in total, such as Tony Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, and Aaron Homoki. Each Box Boarder has a steel ball bearing underneath so that it can skate around in any direction and do tricks. Each Tony Hawk Box Boarders Action Pack includes a Box Boarder, a secret Tony Hawk Box Boarder, a camera holder, and four Quarter Pipe paper ramps. The Tony Hawk Box Boarders Super Pack includes three featured riders, a secret Tony Hawk Box Boarder, a camera holder, a fish eye lens, and a Quarter Pipe paper ramp. There are four different skate parks to collect: a kidney bowl, a backyard pool, a pro park, and an eight bowl. Kids can slide their phone into the slot on the side of the bowl to film their tricks, download the free Tony Hawk Box Boarders Studio app to edit the footage, and then share it online.
