If there’s one bad thing about Girl Scout cookies, it’s that they’re seasonal. The khaki-sashed girls only peddle their addictive wares once a year, so unless you do some serious stockpiling, your Thin Mint supplies probably look pretty paltry come summer.

Such droughts could be a thing of the past with Wicked Cool ToysGirl Scouts Cookie Oven. It’s a working oven, though because it’s meant for children (and not cookie-obsessed adults), we imagine it’s closer to Easy-Bake Oven technology than anything else. There’s a window so you can watch your cookies bake and a warming station for mixing and melting frosting and toppings. Along with the oven, the $60 kit comes with Thin Mints mix, a spatula, a baking pan, and a measuring tool. The goal is to let “aspiring bakers experience the hands-on fun of making their own Girl Scout Cookies,” according to the toy maker.

In addition to Thin Mints, there are mixes for PB Sandwich, Trefoils, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Oatmeal. No Tagalongs or Samoas. We repeat: no Tagalongs or Somas. These refill packs cost $7, or you can get deluxe packs, which mix and match flavors such as Thin Mints and PB Sandwich or Trefoils, Chocolate Shortbread, and Lemon Cookie.

If you don’t want to go through the effort yourself, you can gift your neighborhood Girl Scout with the oven, plus the $130 On-the-Go Wagon or $80 Cookie Stand, so she can do the work for you and earn some extra badges.

The ovens go on sale this fall. Hopefully they’ll have perfected the magic for the Samoas mix. At least give us the Samoas!

No sane person should spend $600 on a consumer-level router
The Eero 7 Max works with Wi-Fi 7.

I have, from time to time, been known to spend a little too much money on toys. (That's pronounced "tech"). I'm a firm believer in spending as much as you can in some circumstances. Can't upgrade the storage or RAM on your phone or laptop later? Max it out now. That sort of thing.

But I cannot, in good conscience, get anywhere close to convincing myself that I'd ever be able to justify spending $600 on a consumer-grade router.

The X2 Omni clenaing under a bed.

The Ecovacs Deebot X2 Omni was officially revealed today, showing off a bold square design, increased suction, and retractable mops so it can vacuum and mop in a single run. It’s a big step up from the old X1 Omni, and it’s a solid addition to the Deebot lineup -- which already includes the well-reviewed T20 Omni.

As one of the most expensive robot vacuums in the Deebot catalog, the X2 Omni is packed with premium features. This includes an impressive 8,000Pa of suction, two rotating mopping pads that apply pressure to the floor while in use, and improved navigation and mapping abilities thanks to a dual-laser lidar system.
