Life’s a Pitch - If you have what it takes to sell just about anything, you are going to love Life’s a Pitch, the wild game of defending the ridiculous. In Life’s a Pitch, another wild and wacky game from Zobmondo!!, each player must convince the group why a random object is the best solution or answer to a particular scenario. To play, each player holds a hand of object cards and chooses one to feature during the ‘pitch’. The player able to persuade everyone else, with the most amusing and entertaining pitch, wins the round. This fast paced game is perfect for ages 12 and up and is a great chance for families and friends to pitch it up.

SodaStream - If your family loves soda, but not the hit you are making on the environment with every bottle and can you throw out… or the hit regular sodas are taking on your body, try SodaStream – the smarter way to drink soda. SodaStream is a home soda maker with over 30 mixes to choose from, including cola, lemon-lime, orange, root beer, ginger ale and cranberry-raspberry. SodaStream brings freshly made soda to the table while protecting the environment. Fizz to your own taste with tap water in less than 30 seconds. Regular flavors contain no high-fructose corn syrup, and diet flavors are sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener, not aspartame, and there is a 64 calorie difference between regular soda and SodaStream cola. Drink your soda the smarter way.

Mint - Cleaning the floors just got a lot cooler! The NorthStar Navigation System works just like an indoor GPS that helps a Mint cleaner keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go. As Mint cleans the floor, in either sweep or mop modes, it builds a map of the area as it goes, marking walls, obstacles and drop offs as it encounters them. Mint works with both disposable cleaning cloths and re-usable micro fiber cloths for dry sweeping and wet mopping floors, and is compatible with most brands of dry and pre-moistened wet cleaning cloths including Swiffer® brand and store brands like Target®. When Mint is finished cleaning, it returns to where it started and parks itself so you know right where to find it. Thank goodness for new technology that makes cleaning so much fun.

Sony Internet TV with Google TV - If you want to get even more out of your television, try Google TV! Sony Internet TV, powered by Google TV, delivers a new experience by bringing the television and Internet together. By using existing cable or satellite services at no additional cost, Google TV provides access to more entertainment options and simplifies the process of finding what you’re looking for with both TV and web content on the same screen. Users can utilize the intuitive handheld keypad with mouse that makes Internet navigation easy. Now you can multi-task better than ever– update facebook about what just happened on your favorite TV show, while tracking the score from your favorite team and emailing work about the reason you are late. ///
