What is Psy and Gangnam Style?


Well Psy is a Korean artist that has a viral music video called "Gangnam Style" that was made popular because of his catchy tunes, flashy costumes and especially his Gangnam Horse Riding dance moves.

Gangnam Style or Gangnam basically means the same in Korean because it is not a verb or an adjectibe, but a place in Korea. Gangnam is like the Sunset Boulevard of South Korea where only the rich and famous lives and hangs out. And Psy, Trying to act how someone in Gangnam acts, but fails miserably.

Psy Gangnam Style Costume Idea For Halloween

Enjoy your homemade popsicle with the instant freezing popsicle maker from Zoku. The first for home popsicle maker that uses the term "instant gratification" to describe their ice pop maker. Pour liquid, wait for 10 minutes and poof! Your popsicle is ready for eating.

When I was a kid, I fondly remember my mom and I experimenting on how to make popsicles by using those ice tray moulds meant for ice pops. I remember them being so unreliable that the popsicle will break into pieces or the stick breaking if you try "popping" them out. The new rubber/silicon-based moulds are better, but they are too expensive to purchase for a one time use occasion. If only a product like the Zoku Quick Pop Maker was invented back then, my life would be so much sweeter(I love cold desserts).

Zoku Popsicle Maker Review 

The Zoku quick popsicle maker is a revolutionary product that will hasten the process of making homemade popsicles. It revolutionizes the way of making ice pops by removing the long wait needed for you to enjoy your treat hence it uses the term, "instant gratification" to advertise their product. The Zoku popsicle maker freezes your popsicle by using a "Special liquid" inside the base of your zoku ice pop maker that passes the "cold" to your popsicle.

Using the instant popsicle maker is easy, but there are special considerations to follow. First, you would need to freeze the base(Where you put the liquid), in a freezer for at least 24 hours. For every 24 hour freezing, you can only make 3 batches of Popsicles. Which means you can only have 9 popsicles for every 24 hours. Every batch of popsicles would need to stay in the base for 10 minutes or depending on how long they will freeze. After you have finished using your product, you can put the Zaku ice pop maker back in your freezer so you can use it on another day.

What makes this product stand out with the old mold/ice tray method is that you can enjoy your popsicle as soon as you made them. You can also easily add layers of liquids or juices in a popsicle or add fruits. You can even add fillings to your ordinary popsicle. I can already imagine making myself a strawberry filled Vanilla popsicle.

Other than the regular Zoku Quick Popsicle Maker, there are other variations of this product. The Zoku Duo Quick Pop only have 2 slots while the Zoku Single Pop has only one compared to 3 with the standard product.

What's included in the Zoku Frozen Pop Maker

- Base(3 holes)
- 3 Drip Guards
- 3 reusable popsicle sticks
- one super tool(helps on releasing your popsicle)

Let's say you have a sudden urge to eat popsicles, with the instant popsicle maker, you can make a homemade popsicle in 10 minutes instead of waiting for hours by using the old popsicle mold method.

Remember that fishing board game where you have a small fishing pole to try and catch little plastic fishes while they open and close their mouth in random? After decades of getting shelved, it is back again with the Let's Go fishing board game.

When I was a kid, I fondly remember playing this simple electronic fishing board game at least once a day. That electronic fishing game is round in shape that have a rotating disk with holes where the fish are placed. I remember trying to catch all the fishes with this small magnetic fishing pole toy while those fishes are bobbing up and down while opening and closing their mouths in random. After catching all of those small fish toys, I will try and place them back in the fishing board game using the fishing rod just for the fun of it. I also remember using the toy fishing rod to magnetize my toy cars or anything magnetic. Those days are some of my happiest. I am just glad that there is a company that took notice of this wonderful fishing board game for kids so that the next generation can enjoy it.

But where did this fishing toy for kids came from?

I searched around the net looking for the developer or the maker of this wonderful fishing toy game but came up with nothing. The only thing I found is a listing of an online shop, but no information was added if they were the first ones to create this awesome toy. I asked my mother and the only thing she can remember is buying it from a toy store somewhere because it was the cheapest board game in the lot(yes she is cheap) but came up short if it was called Lets go fishing game(the one in that online shop). My mother said it was more or less 1993 when she bought that fishing board game for me. After this dead end, I have seen comments of people on that online shop on which they said that they have fond memories of playing the same game more than 30 years ago. Which means that I have been playing a really classic board game or it was in production(faked or otherwise) for decades. I guess anything is possible when there are already battery powered board games in the 60's(Ex. Operation)

Review of the Let's Go fishing board game, one realistic electronic fishing toy.

The game is basically a fish hook toy. You use the provided small fishing pole to catch the fish placed in the rotating disk while they are bobbing up and down, closing and opening their mouths in random. There is only one rule for this board game for children, get as many fish as you can which makes it one of the simple board games for kids that does not involve a lot of reading nor any card use unlike other traditional board games. It can be played by one or four or as long as there are spare toy fishing rods available. It is also one that does not involve a lot of pieces so misplacing board game pieces is almost impossible(the fishes are at least 2-3 inch in length . The battery life will also last for hours.

Priced currently as $10 in Amazon, it is one of the cheapest board games you can buy.

There is also a toy called The Original Family Fishing Game which some say was original maker of this toy. I don't know if its true or not but it looks similar to the let's go fishing game or vice versa. Either way, users have two options to choose from.

There are also newer versions like the happy feet fishing game, Spongebob clam catching game, Disney Pixar Cars Tire fishing game, toy story alien fishing game and more versions that does the same thing, but with different themes. Check other versions in amazon.
