The holiday shopping season is around the corner and Dickie D went to the annual Holiday Showcase and found some cool toys:
The Toilet Paper Blasters Sheet Storm transforms regular toilet Paper into high powered spitballs! Here's info from the company: Splatter the competition with rapid Fire pump-action up to 50 feet! One roll of toilet paper gives you 350+ rounds of non-stop spitball action. Spitballs go exceptionally far and stick to most anything they hit in classic spitball fashion. Easy cleanup, bio-degradable & does not stain. Grab a roll of toilet paper and blast away! Please note, slight water leakage is normal during play. Toilet Paper not included (we hope you already have some at home!) Recommended for ages 8 plus. (I was told double-ply toilet paper works best.) At both Amazon & Target, it's $39.99.

As of 9/20/19 only 5 so-so reviews on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2O7wgSu
And then there's the Jooki Juke Box for kids. It's a music player that lets kids play parent-approved music and stories from Spotify & more. It comes with 5 characters (like fox, whale, etc.) that link to various playlists. When a kid pop one of them on the center ring of the Jooki, it start to play the music, story, etc., that has been uploaded to that character. The company says there's an 8-hour battery life (there's no screen to such up battery juice) so it means very long playtime, even outdoors or on the go. There's a small amount of onboard memory but there's an SD card slot to add more. Strangely, that is listed as 32GB Max, although for audio files, that's quite a bit. There's also a headphone jack and airplane mode so the kids can entertain themselves quietly. You can turn off parental controls to use Jooki as a wireless speaker with premium sound quality. Dick says that the sound was very good, but then again, the retail price is a penny under the $200 mark. At CES earlier this year, in the Educational Toy Category, it was awarded Best in Family Tech. On Amazon as of 9/20/19 there was only 34 reviews so far, but it got an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars. MSRP. $199.99
