Seasonal Toys

For those shopping for toys in the near future, the New Yorker has an article discussing the following products:

Lego Tantive IV Star Wars Set; Buckyballs; Tetraxis magnetic geometry puzzle; Snap Circuits; Primary Science Set; the Diet Coke and Mentos Kit; the Mammoth Excavation kit; Nerf N-Strike Stampede ECS Blaster; Anker blocks; Harold the Smoking Penguin; Paper Jamz Guitars; Sun, Moon, Stars Drums; the Infant’s Sleep Sound Lamb; American Girl dolls; Barbie Foosball Table; Sophie, the teething giraffe; Call of Duty: Black Ops video game; the Forbidden Island board game; Squinkies; and Beyblade

Most of these names mean nothing to me. Diet Coke and Mentos has some obvious appeal, but I'm sure it would only amuse me for two or three hours, at most.
