CatFilter: Help me figure out what this cat toy is so I can buy another.

Mom bought me a totally awesome cat toy that my cat loves. Of course, I am a doofus who stepped on it while I was moving and now it's broken, and I can't figure out where to buy another. It's manufactured by Hartz, but my usual Google-Fu is failing me. [more inside]

I WANT RADICA CUBE WORLD TO BE ON TRIPLE-XXX STEROIDS

RADICA CUBE WORLD: When they click together with their little magnets, they become aware of their own neighbors. Each cube is self-powered, and it almost seems that you could connect an infinite number of them together. My question: From a computer-science point-of-view, how could this toy be 100 times better!?!?? [more inside]

Help me identify this toy!

Help me identify this toy and how it works. It's a wooden head on the end of a red dowel, about five inches long in total. Two shallow grooves are cut into the dowel, and there's a short loop of elastic with a bead on it looped through a hole in the dowel. There's also a loop of elastic about eight feet long (i.e. in circumference) with a slightly bigger wooden bead attached to it, although there's a slim possibility that this isn't related to the head part.

Educational Media

Can you recommend some great educational media for my nearly two year old daughter? I am looking for good DVD's, computer / iPhone software, or websites that I can load up for 30-60 minutes a day. I would like something she can learn from, but if she is having fun, that is cool as well. Right now she is a Dora and Diego addict. I just got her a few LeapFrog preschool DVD's that she loves. She can sing her ABC's and can count to 10 in English and Spanish. She is just starting to be able to answer "How does the letter A, B, C, etc. go?' She knows how to flip pages and push buttons on the iPhone. Are there any computer learning games that a two year old could handle. Flash games? iPhone games? Answers to this question do not involve telling me to take my daughter outside. I am familiar with the debunking of Baby Einstein. I would just like to find some good stuff for her to watch, play or interact with. General toy recommendations are good as well.
