Posted in Personal Transport by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2009

tagabike-thumb-530x340-179011It’s been the same for as long as I can remember. Moms have been forced to push their little ones everywhere. Isn’t it enough that they pushed the kid out in the first place? Moms need a break. So it’s fitting that on Mother’s day we show you the Taga stroller/trike.

This baby folds up so you can fit it in the car trunk for trips. And it also has a wide range of attachments, like a setup for two kids, covered seats for rainy weather, and baskets. You can even adjust the length of the trike to work with whatever load you are carrying.

INCHworm shoe grows with your feet

Posted in Foot Apparel by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2009

INCHworm shoe grows with your feetIt’s a common parental problem. Your kid asking for a new pair of shoes every few months, because he has outgrown the old ones. Expensive too. You could take a cue from China and their women, and force your child’s feet to remain small forever by cramming them into a tiny shoe, but that only gets child services involved.

These shoes grow with the growing foot size of your child. Dubbed the INCHworm, they use iFit technology, with accordion-like material on the toe. With the press of a button it can be pulled out to increase the length of the shoe in ½ size increments up to 3 full sizes. Pretty sweet huh? It’s designed tough so all those days at the playground won’t destroy them.

Mag-Lite Flashlight could end up in your kids nose

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Mag-Lite Flashlight could end up in kids noseKids love to stick stuff in their noses. (They also like to dig deep and pick stuff out, but that’s another story.) The little tykes will stick toys up their nostrils, candy, their finger, you name it. In fact, if there’s nothing nearby to actually stick up their nose, they often go into withdrawal, constantly sniffing and touching their nose while snorting, like a junkie checking themselves for powder on the outside.

Well, Mag-Lite is exploiting the phenomena in their latest ad campaign. Making “light” of it even. Maglite is launching their smallest flashlight yet named Solitaire, with these images of kids who breath light out of their nostrils.

EyeClops mini projector for kids

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on February 11th, 2009

EyeClops mini projector for kidsKids have it good today. I don’t think we had any cool projectors when I was a kid. This one is from toymaker Jakks Pacific and looks pretty neat. It’s expected to be at next week’s Toy Fair in New York.

There aren’t any full specs available yet, but we know that it will project a 70-inch image via LED, and it can be hooked up to the other gadgets your kid owns, like DVD players, cameras, and game consoles. What’s interesting is the price. The device is expected to sell for under $100, which is much cheaper than the adult versions we enjoy.

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptable

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2009

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptableAs a kid, how many times were you told to stop playing with your food? Probably a lot. Well, playing with your food on these plates is totally acceptable and even mandatory. The Food Face is a mid-size, hotel-quality, food-safe plate.

It’s time you had the freedom to play with your food. Your parents were just too uptight. Make a hat full of peas, or a beard full of corn, maybe put some carrots as the eyebrows. No price yet, but I imagine they will be available soon.

Lego announces gadget line for kidsLego’s just announced that they will be teaming up with Digital Blue to bring out a line of digital cameras, PMPs, and walkie talkies for kids. Modders have been making gadgets out of Legos for awhile now, so I guess the company figured they would do the work for people. Kids at least.

The products feature the familiar “Lego” look, but they are not constructed out of actual bricks. We don’t have any specs yet, but these Lego gadgets are said to be arriving this summer, prices ranging from $19 – $60.

Newsmy MP3 dolls are an evil pairLook, I don’t care how rotten your kid has been. Nobody deserves these creepy MP3 dolls for children. Give them coal in their stocking if you must, but spare them the trauma that this wicked pair will cause. There’s not a whole lot of info about these unbalanced and obviously devious dolls, but their names are Man-Man and Niu Niu.

The controls are in the hands and feet, and they feature an automatic shutdown, you know, in case you catch them cornering your kid with a knife, while blasting the latest Britney Spears ear-rape. The MP3 players are hidden in the guts of the dolls. This fright-fest comes hot on the heels of H-Bouya, another creep-gadget that will have your kids shaking in the corner like a crack-addict and asking “Why daddy, why?”

Gamerox Game chair keeps kids moving

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2008

Gamerox Game chair keeps kids movingGamerox is a new concept in game seating, designed for younger gamers by designer Tim Briggs. The basic idea is that keeps them moving while playing games, so their little muscles don’t atrophy and so they won’t need a walker by age 12 due to too many First Person Shooters. The design and patented mechanisms encourage full 3D body movement during game play. This movement improves circulation and aids muscle and skeletal development. Gamerox also assists in the development of coordination, balance and spatial awareness.

So if your kid seems kind of, uh, dumb, weak and not so self aware because of their gaming, this may set them straight. Apparently the seat design encourages an upright sitting position which is good for core stability, muscle training and posture development. Gamerox can be used with any game console.

LEGO security bracelet for kids

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 30th, 2008

LEGO security bracelet for kidsThis concept security bracelet for kids comes from a project led by Rodrigo Torres. The idea is that if you combine a security bracelet with LEGO, kids will be more apt to wear it and be tracked for safety reasons. It’s got several features that will get your kid to keep it with him/her.

First off, they can design it the way they like with LEGO bricks. Throw in some games, photos, speaker and the a Lego man in front, and your kid is suckered into being tracked while having a fun device of their own. Heck, I want one myself. I don’t care if it’s tracking me. Sadly, it remains but a concept at the moment.

Good Nite Lite creeps your kid into proper sleeping habitsThe Good Nite Lite is designed to get your kid on the straight and narrow, because right now he or she is used to staying up late with their DS, hanging on facebook and even scrolling through our very pages to get their gadget fix. Something has to change and the Good Nite Lite is just creepy enough to work, in a teletubby sort of way. It’s designed for children ages 3 to 5 who are learning the difference between day and night and when they should be sleeping. Ok, so maybe a little young to be on the internet at night, but who knows what they get up to.

The device changes colors from warm yellow sunshine to nighttime moonlight according to the times you select. Now your kids will have a visual way of knowing when they should still be sleeping and when to wake up. The Good Nite Lite will be available in a few months for $34.99. You know, when one of these changes to daylight in the factory. Then it will be time for tubby custard and world domination.
