Nick Hindson, Market $hare is a new board game designed to bring out the entrepreneur in all of us by teaching New Zealanders about business and financial literacy. Testing business sense and decision- making, the game is based on the dealings of real New Zealand businesses. Players use strategy to dominate markets, taking into consideration risk management, budgeting, asset planning, negotiation and cash flow. In addition to providing a fun-filled way to spend those holidays, Market $hare is intended to help players (kids and adults alike) learn about how the business world works. Market $hare is available at The Warehouse RRP $89.95. Go bananas with Yonanas: Most of us would love to indulge sweet treat cravings without feeling guilty afterwards? Well now, dessert lovers can jump for joy thanks to a revolutionary new kitchen appliance, the Yonanas which makes a delicious, all natural, low cost frozen dessert. The Yonanas machine quickly turns frozen bananas and other frozen fruits into a variety of creamy desserts that look and taste like soft-serve ice cream (seriously, you have to try it to believe how ice cream-like it is). This hot new kitchen appliance means indulging without bulging -- unlike ice cream, a 'yonanas' has zero fat and zero cholesterol. And, because it uses bananas as a base, it's full of fibre, vitamins and minerals. Add frozen berries and your 'yonanas' is antioxidant-rich! The advanced technology of the yonanas machine means flavours are limited only by one's imagination. Try peach and blueberry, summer melon or mocha chocolate? Yonanas machines are available from Farmers, Briscoes and Mitre 10 stores. RRP $149. Leap to it for the kids: The Times Christmas Lift Out has already featured a list of "Top 10" children's toys -- a combination of the latest technological advances and age old favourites. But as many parents are discovering, youngsters today have little trouble mastering computerised toys and gadgetry with iPads now as much at home on the kids' bookshelves as Enid Blyton's, Noddy once was. So perhaps a must for under the tree this year will be the Leapfrog Leappad2, currently topping 'most wanted' toy lists everywhere. Last year Planet Fun, CEO, Jeremy Kirk-Smith, predicted that, unlike some toy fads, kids would not tire of the LeapPad. He was right; this year the LeapPad2 is a winner. "The Leapfrog LeapPad2 is an outstanding product, similar to an iPad but designed especially for kids, which means parents can keep their iPads for themselves," Mr Kirk-Smith explains. "It is smaller for smaller hands, cheaper and more robust. " Leapfrog LeapPad2 is available at a wide variety of toy and department stores nationwide.
