Boba Fett Launch lab

We love toy rockets, but we don’t love having kids blow off their fingers. Good thing that Uncle Milton came out with a safe rocket toy that is not only cool, but it’s freakin Boba Fett Cool! That’s right, a Star Wars Themed Rocket. .. and it is a huge pile of awesome!
The Boba Fett Launch lab is a customizable stomp rocket. Just in case you don’t know what that means… you pump it up with air and then stomp on the plunger to make the rocket take off! What we liked about this was that it not only works (shoots up to 50 feet), but you can very easily change it around to see how different set ups make Boba fly differently. Great kid for any boy who likes making things fly or Star Wars!

Ant farm Revolution

Ant Farms are a super cool and timeless gift, but there’s never been one like this. Uncle Milton went to the creator of The Sims, Syd Meyer, to help revamp the ant farm concept into something that will blow your kid’s mind.

First, instead of sand, the revolution uses a pillar style design. This gives the ants a more natural environment in which to dig and a totally new viewing experience for the humans. Next, they don’t use sand, they use a special nutrient gel that lets you see all the tunnels the ants are digging in their new home.

Now, here is where it gets really cool. there’s a built in light that projects the ants up onto your ceiling, making for either the coolest or creepiest night light that you’ve ever seen. We really loved this!

Fireworks Light Show

We thought this was a really interesting invention from the guys at Uncle Milton so we wanted to show it off to you. It looks like a hand held cannon, but instead of mortars or nerf balls, it shoots images on to your wall or ceiling of fireworks. It also has great sound effects that go off as the images expand on your wall, very similar to natural fireworks… but without your house catching on fire. We found the Fireworks show launcher to be better for kids under seven, It is fun for the kids to operate and a great bonus for bed time story time, but older kids are starting to get a little too jaded for this type of fun.

RC Snake

This is a great gift for boys who have little sisters that they like to scare or grown ups who have anyone that they like to scare. Uncle Milton has managed to put together the most lifelike radio controlled snake that we’ve ever seen.

At over 20″ long, this snake doesn’t just roll forward, it moves in a natural, slithering motion. You are going to have a lot of fun making your friends and family wet their pants with terror and surprise. With that in mind, you might want to pick up more than one. There’s a good chance that whoever you use this guy on, is going to stomp on it or hit it with a broom!

Dinosaur Train Dino Poop

Dinosaur Train is one of the hottest kids toys around. There are tons of figures and playsets you can buy, but only Uncle Milton gives your kid a chance to dig through their poop! Here’s the good news (or bad news if you are a freak), it isn’t real pool. It’s fun modeling clay that has hidden surprises in it… no, the surprise isn’t corn…

depending on if you pick up a pile of Omnivore, herbivore or carnivore, you might find anything from leaves to skeletons hidden inside. We loved this toy because its poop. We also loved that it feeds a kids need to explore and discover…and then when that wears off, you’ve still got the clay to play with.

Dinosaur Train Hatchers Four Pack

Remember those cool little toys you had as a kid that you would throw in a bottle of water and then watch them grow over a couple of days? Uncle Milton has taken that idea and turned it into a great toy for little kids. First, the characters are all creatures from Dinosaur Train! Second, they hatch out of an egg!

We really loved the egg aspect of these toys. It takes about a day for the creatures to start hatching and when we did this with a little kid, she got super excited about just watching the hatching. Having the animals grow up to 4x after the hatching was just icing on the cake. The characters included are: Buddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don.
