What to look for when Buying Dolls for your Tween Girl

Pros and Cons of Video Games

Since the first commercially sold video game in 1971 this relatively new form of media has become one of the dominant forms of entertainment known in the world today.

Podcast Reviews 1up yours

The following is a review for the podcast, 1up Yours. With a name like one 1up Yours, it’s clear that this podcast isn’t for kids. Instead, it’s a podcast for, and by men. Here’s the setting: you’ve got four or five guys sitting in a room, talking about video games. They all work together, and

Reflections why Action Figures and Dolls are Bad Gifts for Gender Stereotyping

Gender roles have been ratified, and we are all equal now. The toy conglomerates have not progressed in their thinking yet, still producing toys specific to genders.Gender stereotyping is an antiquated notion in today’s modern society. In days long yore, gender stereotypes were prevalent, and they were so on purpose. Parents once belonged to the

What serious Girl Gamers look for in a Video Game

Outgoing, high-achieving women can play video games just as well as the introverted, basement-dwelling stereotype. I’ve been playing video games since 6th grade and am now an incoming freshman at an Ivy League university. Video games never hurt my academic record or social life (in fact, guys loved that I could beat them at Halo).

Toys and Games for Multiracial Children

Funny Moments

To be honest, I’d be hard pressed to pick a particular moment of humour from any one game. I’ve been playing videogames for, ooh, must be 30 years by now, and a lot of them have crossed my path. The total must be into several thousand by now, and that’s not even including online or

Video Game Cheating

This article title reminds me of the creed- “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.” Simply put, it’s misleading and not completely true or false.

Effects of Video Games on Children

The tabloid newspapers constantly scream that video games are bad for children. Like all sweeping generalizations, the true position is somewhat more complicated than a bald statement. Children’s influences come from many places in this technological age, not just video games. Years of ever more violent television programmes may have more effect than video games.

Memorable Video Game Villains

One of the wonderful aspects of video games is that a list of the most memorable villains in the video game world could be comprised of dozens of nefarious no-gooders, all of which would be provocative entries on the itemization.

Is World of Warcraft a Waste of Time

There are video games and then there are MMORPGs. World of Warcraft, as most probably know, is classed as an MMORPG (but still a video game all the same). The reason I differentiate between the two is because one (though not always) requires a monthly subscription fee, as well as requiring you to buy the
