Four years ago, we brought you the Marshmallow Shooter. It served you well. It kept enemies at bay. It won many office battles. But times have gotten worse. And times like these call for something stronger. Times like these call for the Executive Elite Marshmallow Blaster ($55). This pump-action weapon shoots marshmallows up to 40 feet, and stores discreetly in a Bond-esque carrying case.
If a trip to India isn't in the cards this year, take a virtual trip by way of the Lego Taj Mahal ($300). Featuring an impressive 5,922 pieces, this ultra-detailed recreation is sure to provide hours of entertainment, and at least a little frustration, measuring over 20 inches wide and 16 inches tall, with details such as minarets, domes, arches, and stairs.
Recreate your own disaster, or just do a Lego version of the "I'm king of the world!" scene with the Remote Controlled RMS Titanic ($2,500). This 1:150 scale reproduction features insane details like cedar strips covering the fiberglass hull, white maple planks for the decking, lifeboats, docking deck, and a Marconi aerial, along with two rechargeable batteries offering up to 3 hours of playtime, three 550-watt electric motors, a cruising speed of 5 mph, and more.

Most of us don't have the engineering, design, or architectural chops to recreate any of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterworks, but we can anyway, thanks to these new Frank Lloyd Wright Lego Architecture Building Sets ($TBA). Licensed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection, these terrific sets — of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater — were developed in collaboration with leading architects to be as accurate as possible, and come with booklets that not only tell you how to build you own model masterpiece, but exclusive archival historical material and photographs of each building, as well.
