Nobody can accuse the Japanese of being boring when it comes to their hobbies, interests, and obsessions. Anyone who dabbles in Japanese culture or frequents import shops can tell you that not only do the Japanese create all of the coolest toys, they also come up with some of the funkiest, craziest, and most off-the-wall stuff youve ever seen.
Parents should resist picking up Power Shovel. While it appears from the cover to be a game that most young fans of construction equipment would want to check out, mastering the controls is going to be astronomically far above the heads of most children. Unless youre shopping for an older […]
