Cracker Jack’s “More Nuts” campaign still lacks balls

The data is in and tallied. Teams of empirical researchers and forensic accountants have received exotic vacation packages for their hard slogging. (The former are free to return to the query, “Cancer, how’s about a cure?”) My earlier concerns have been confirmed. Despite a vigorous “More Nuts” splash on their packaging, Cracker Jack boxes don’t have a hell of a lot of nuts.[Continue Reading…]

Cracker Jack’s “More Nuts” campaign lacks balls

Rock Band 3: Blurring the Line

I’m sure at some point you’ve been to a party (or gathering, if you’re old) where someone had Rock Band. If not, the terrorists have already won. What caps off an already brilliant event? Your own personal full band karaoke set up. Nothing more fun than watching friends and family slam on the drums or scream nonsense into a microphone.

Baseball Mogul 2011 – toy of the week

I’ve been a big fan of the Baseball Mogul franchise for many years as I’ve always felt it married fun and complexity in the most user-friendly way possible. This year’s version added what I consider the last big piece to the puzzle: free agency bidding. [Continue Reading…]
