news

Inside the Toy Box sums up the past week’s toy news, top sellers, trends, pre-orders and any other great happenings in the world of toys and pop culture.

We just got back from Spring Break in sunny Los Angeles so apologies again for the missed week (or two).  If you haven’t been checking in there is a lot going on to get you caught up on.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just a few days a way and the marketing machine is full steam ahead with this one.  The Mattel Barbie line is in stock so be sure to look for those on shelves.  The set includes Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.  I guess I collect Barbie now because I picked up Batman.   (more…)
