WowWee MINTiD Dog-E
Now that everything from cars to toys is packed with electronics, Las Vegas’ annual Consumer Electronics Show is about more than just TVs, laptops and smartphones. At this year’s show, currently taking place in Sin City, WowWee unveiled Dog-E, a robotic pup that can walk around a room, hear voice commands, and recognize pets and hugs using touch sensors on its nose, head, and sides of its body. WowWee promises that a million possible combinations of color-changing LEDs, sounds and personality traits will make each Dog-E stand out, while a companion mobile app allows the bot’s personality to be swapped out on the fly, so each family member can interact with it however they choose.
Hasbro Nerf Elite Junior Blaster

The new additions feature designs engineered to fit smaller hands more comfortably, larger sights, arrows that load exclusively in the front, and grips that are easier to grab and pull back when reloading. At launch, six new additions are available in various sets of targets and darts, including the $25 Rookie Pack Blaster, $18 Voyage Target Set, $13 Explorer Blaster, $20 Ultimate Starter Set and the Flyer Blaster for $10 Full lineup will be available sometime this month.
Super Impulse Poptaters
It won’t be long before every last bit of pop culture possession is eventually turned into some sort of collectible knick-knack. The latest to fall victim to the trend is Mr. Potato Head, who is now a Set of Accessible Figures based on characters such as KISS’s Gene Simmons, Optimus Prime, painter Bob Ross and, a true Joker, the garbage pail kid Adam Bomb. The plastic potato at the core of these figs is only four inches tall, but with the addition of interchangeable accessories, they stand a little taller, which might make the $15-$18 price tags more bearable.

One of the most popular card games in the world gets another update with UNO Flex, which adds a bit more chaos to gameplay by allowing “Flex” cards to offer two options for players to choose between a card’s primary or secondary suit or the action occurs when playing. For example, the “Flex” version of the Draw 4 cards gives the player the ability to choose exactly who must draw those additional cards. But to keep that extra power in check, UNO Flex also introduces two-sided power cards, with a green tick on one side and a red X on the other, that flip back and forth during a game and decide whether a player is allowed to take advantage of the flex options in your hand. UNO Flex is available now for $6.50.
