It's almost December, and I guess I should go into something a bit more festive... from the Nightmare before Christmas, Mr. Jack Skellington courtesy of Revoltech!

I have always looked at Playmobil toys in wonder, but as a Lego fan, I really can't afford two expensive hobbies. Still, when I saw this box on the shelves in the toystore, I knew I just have to have it. Playmobil does a lot of religious themes - Noah's ark comes to mind, but the Nativity scene must be its most popular religious theme - I believe there are even Playmobil advent calendars!

As I said, good things always comes in twos, except that I'm not sure if these Food Fighter vehicles can be considered to be good. They are a throwback to a time when any and all household items were converted into toys - Computer Warriors from Mattel also comes to mind - but does that make them good?

I still remember watching Space Strikers. It was one of those cartoons which I was really interested in, but could never remember when it is on. I never knew there were toys for the series until I was picking at a clearance bin and saw this. I guess I bought it just because.

It's another double today - a pair of testosterone filled brutes from a franchise that was popular in the nineties - American Gladiators. Yup, you remembered it correctly. People hanging on giant balls or fighting with giant cue-tips!

I thought I'd just close out Girl Toys week (aka Girls Just Wanna Have Fun week) with a pair of MotUC ladies...

I guess this is shaping out to be Toys for Girls week? I've heard lots of talk from Bronies about how awesome the MLP line is, and I'm not really a fan of the whole pony thing, but I did get one of these to try out.

It was Hello Kitty two days ago, and today I open another couple of Mega Bloks sets, this time from their Smurfs theme.

Hello? Is it me you're looking for? Probably not. Hello Kitty is one of those fads that won't die... and Sanrio has got Mega Bloks to actually make Hello Kitty sets. Whoa!

The Japanese have funny toys sometimes. I picked these two up on impulse just because they look cool.

Well, four accessory packs... and since they are accessories, they don't count towards the Toy a Day limit!

Toy hunting in a foreign country is always fun. Especially when that country happens to be Japan, the home of some of the most exciting toys since... well, forever. While I was there a couple of years ago I picked up this pair of figures, one of which was Acrostera. No, I don't read Japanese, but it's written there on the fron of her bubble in Latin letters, or romanji as the Japanese call it.

Another day, another Beetlejuice toy for Beetlejuice week here on Toy a Day. It's not another Beetlejuice figure today, but it's something that's a lot more awesome - a vehicle from the line. That's right, it's the Phantom Flyer!
