Remote Controlled Batman Bat-Pod

We've written about Batman toys before and we were interested to discover this new remote controlled U-Command Batman Bat-Pod from Thinkaway Toys.

The Bat-Pod features light-up wheels, voice effects and sound effects. It is programmed with 1000 sequences and will go forward and backward and do a 360 degree. You can even program it to follow your own action sequence. How much fun is that? I'm thinking my grown sons would have fun with this particular The Dark Knight Rises Batman toy.

A bit of searching found this video review, which I believe demonstrates nicely how the remote controlled U-Command Batman Batpod works. The review is a bit lengthy at 7.5 minutes but it is a good review that also gives you a chance to see the Batpod perform its tricks. MaximumXGamer, who wrote this review, calls the U-Command Batpod one of the best choices of the toys released from The Dark Knight Rises and, fortunately for anyone interested in buying it, the price on is a lot less than the price was at the time he wrote his review.

Be sure to let us know if there's a Batpod in your future!

See you
at the movies!

Hallmark's Christmas With Holly (2012)

Hallmark Hall of Fame's next movie presentation is Christmas with Holly.

Christmas with Holly is a romantic story based on a novel by Lisa Kleypas called Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor.

I love that it will air just shortly before Christmas on December 9, 2012 and I love that it will air on ABC, which means that I will be able to watch it! Woo Hoo!

How about you? Are you looking forward to Hallmark Hall of Fame's 247th movie presentation? I am!

See you
at the movies!

Harry Potter's Golden Snitch

Harry Potter fans know well the significance of the Golden Snitch and likely carry an image in their minds that it looks something like the Snitch shown in this photograph. A Snitch is a living, golden sphere with wings that measures approximately the same size as a walnut.  In the Harry Potter books and movies, the Snitch flies all over the Quidditch field trying to avoid capture. When caught, he is worth 150 points and with his capture, the game is over.

In the real world or muggle version of Quidditch the Snitch is actually an individual, usually dressed in golden yellow who is fast, agile and entertaining. His (or her) capture also signals the end of the game.

Fans of Harry Potter and/or the real world game of Quidditch who would like to possess the Golden Snitch can actually purchase one from Amazon. The Snitch shown at the top of this page is actually a necklace and locket, opening up to reveal two spots in which to put your favorite images.

Another Snitch themed jewelry item is this handsome Golden Snitch pocket watch:

These jewelry pieces are not extremely expensive items, so don't expect solid brass but do expect to add an unusual Harry Potter piece to your collection.
We also like this Golden Snitch necktie, which is a bit more expensive but not extremely so for a neck tie that looks to be a particularly handsome and unusual Harry Potter gift idea.
We're impressed with the selection of Harry Potter Golden Snitch themed merchandise and think any of these choices would be a TOP-RATED GIFT IDEA for a Harry Potter fan. However, if we haven't shown you something you like, or you are just plain curious, you can click here to see Amazon's complete collection of Harry Potter Golden Snitch merchandise.
