“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” wrote a delighted shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe 720p is plenty for this screen size....

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom from a not-so-friendly group of invading Rabbids.

The award-winning Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — is a wild co-op game full of strategy and puzzles, with new weapons and attacks. It's fun for newly minted Mario fans as well as devotees.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over- nor under-powered, and great artwork..."

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is down from $60 to just $28.

“I couldn't be more pleased with this Amazon Fire product,” shared a savvy five-star shopper and traveler. “That was just the start. I wanted to go on a two week trip across country and didn't want to carry my big laptop as a carry-on. But, I wanted a bigger screen than a cell phone for reading books and checking email. The Amazon Fire was the perfect solution to my problem. The day I got it I started setting up Kindle and using the internet. It performed beautifully on the plane. Once I got to my destination I started seeing what else I could do. I was able to easily get into my email and Facebook within minutes. The only thing this little wonder won't do is make a phone call. Everything else is easy and intuitive. Love it!”
