Dad’s Cab: A taxi meter for your kids

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on August 28th, 2008

Dad’s Cab: A taxi meter for your kidsBeing a parent isn’t easy. You have to be a jack of all trades. One of those trades is Taxi Driver. Can you drive me here and pick me up at 10? And it never ends until the kid is old enough to drive. That’s where the Dad’s Cab novelty taxi meter comes in handy. Dad’s Cab is a novelty taxi meter that comes with a bunch of cards that dad can give out to their kids as a bill. Payments include such things as ‘tidy your room’ and ‘make dad a cup of tea’.

In other words, no more free rides. With the included adhesive strips, you can secure the taxi meter to the dashboard of your car. Turn it on every time your kid uses you as a taxi service and the meter will go up. Also doubles as an alarm clock and is powered by 4 LR44 batteries at £9.95. It teaches kids that nothing is free and your time is valuable.

Crayola EZ Type keyboard

Crayola EZ Type keyboardThe Crayola EZ Type keyboard sure isn’t easy on the eyes. It’s great to use when you want your kids germy and sticky hands well away from your own keyboard. Alternately, it would be great for old people for the same reason, plus the colored keys are big and easy to read. Or maybe you just like your accessories to look like crayons. Either way, you can get it from Crayola for $29.99. Also great for those in clown college. I’m surprised they didn’t put that crayon sharpener on it somewhere like on the crayon box.

Star Wars Clone Trooper laptop

Star Wars Clone Trooper laptop
If Phantom Menace, Attack of The Clones and Revenge of the Sith didn’t ruin Star Wars for you the new Clone Wars probably will. To help celebrate George Lucas throwing his own feces on screen once again, comes this Clone Trooper laptop for the kids.

Nice case, and a typical keyboard lets your little Jedi play boring learning games on its monochrome screen. It’s probably a good case to use for a mod, or maybe you could take the front off and have yourself a half mask, but that’s about it for $39.99.

Zigo bike also carries your rugrats

Zigo bike also carries your rugrats
We’ve seen some pretty weird bikes that want to keep the family traveling together, ever since the price of gas has gone crazy. The crazy Electric Bike Train comes to mind.

Well, here’s another idea. The Zigo bike has apparently taken dad from the equation all together, opting to put mom either behind or on the thing, while the kid or kids are in the danger zone up front known as the ChildPod. The ChildPod can be removed and transformed into a stroller lightning quick, and the Zigo can be used as a standard 2-wheeled bicycle once you attach the front wheel. It’s $995 worth of parts swapping with kids in tow.

Ultimate Ears are loud enough for kids

Ultimate Ears are loud enough for kids
Some of you are concerned parents. Concerned about gadgets. No, I kid. And speaking of kids, these Ultimate Ears Loud Enough Earphones are child friendly and designed to protect their delicate eardrums. Which is pretty important as eardrums can be permanently damaged due to loud music. And kids especially like it loud.

That’s why Ultimate Ears has released the Loud Enough Earphones in blueberry, mint, or plum, all with matching cases. A pair will cost you $40 rather then costing your kid premature deafness. No matter what the volume dial says, these earphones keep it all soft.

Pirate Ship Bed for rich brats

Pirate Ship Bed for rich brats
If I’ve learned anything in this life, it’s that rich people have spoiled and bratty children. There’s no better way to keep rich demon spawn occupied and eliminate parental interaction, then to buy them something completely ridiculous and let them have at it.

Like this huge ass Pirate ship parked in the room of your choosing, for instance. It’s actually a fancy huge bed. Some features include a play aft deck with working helm, forward deck with sail, walking plank, four cannons, wooden anchor, working brass portholes, wake up brass bell, captain’s quarters in twin or double full, and first mate’s quarters. Prices range from $6650 to $8050

Potty Monkey teaches you how to use the toilet

Potty Monkey teaches you how to use the toilet
Products that are designed to help you learn how to use the toilet are funny. Mostly because you should know how to use the toilet by now. Potty Monkey is awesome. This 15-inch tall stuffed monkey comes complete with a pair of diapers, a pair of underwear and his toilet. An electronic timer is buried somewhere in his rectum body and can be set at intervals of 30 or 90 minutes. When the clock runs out, the monkey will tell you he needs to go potty. When you place him on the toilet he won’t shut up about it. He’ll tell you how much better he feels, and will even sing a version of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, except his version is all about dukey and yule-logs. Don’t think you can just ignore him like a bad parent either.

If you do, he will just plead more. “I really need to go potty! Let’s go potty!!” Ignore him again, and he says, “Hey, take me to the potty now or I’ll have an accident!” After that, “Oh no! I had an accident! Please take me to the potty next time.” No…I will not take you to the potty. You are not my son. You are a bad monkey who somehow ended up in my home and feels free to crap himself at the drop of a hat.

Moov makes some awesome Kid Vehicles

Moov makes some awesome Kids Vehicles
Moov is one of the coolest kids I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a DIY 4-in-1 vehicle kit for kids between 5 and 12 from Dutch company Berg. You can build a racer, a carver, a tricycle, and a scooter. It’s like combining LEGO and Erector with the big wheel.

With the large wood and plastic pieces, it’s easy enough for a kid to build and big enough to ride it down the street. Plus, they are actually learning while they play. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see add-ons for these very soon, that would pimp up the kid creations.

Robot babysitters eye our young

Robot babysitters eye our young
Japanese retailer Aeon Co. said on Tuesday that it has introduced a four-foot-seven tall, yellow-and-white robot at a store in the southern city of Fukuoka. The robot will be in charge of entertaining the children. Parents are encouraged to leave their children with the kid-sized machine, and the kids wear special badges that bear codes which the robot can read. (In other words, our young have now been tagged. They can now be tracked by our shiny metal overlords. Oh joy!)

The robot can identify the children’s names and ages and chat with them.(The indoctrination begins. CONFORM, tiny larvae human.) The robot also has a projector in one of its eyes to beam advertising messages(directly into child retinas) — or to show pictures that it has captured with a camera installed in the other eye.(Pictures of dead humans and the carnage to come. It encourages the whole CONFORM thing.)

Zeki walkie-talkie with SMS and MP3 for kids

Zeki walkie-talkie with SMS and MP3 for kids
Here’s an interesting way to pimp out your toddler. Korean company YoungToys released a cellphone/digital toy aimed directly at kids and toddlers. “Zeki” uses Near Field Communication(NFC) technology to communicate between mom and kid, or kid and kid, up to an 80-meter distance. Some other features include mp3 playback, voice & video recording, SMS and alarm function and the ability to absorb kid germs.

Zeki also supports the exchange of data between devices, so kids can exchange songs and videos, or plot the demise of an adult. The $105 device is made from materials harmless to their rugrat bodies and the phone is apparently shielded against electromagnetic waves, so you do not have to worry about your kid’s brain being fried. This would go well with the Sweetpea MP3 player he/she has already drooled all over.

Anti-Teen Device may be banned in England

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2008

Anti-Teen Device may be banned in EnglandStores and malls in England have been using an ultrasonic device known as the Mosquito Alarm to keep kids from loitering. Because everyone knows that kids are just large insects with ipods and skateboards. It emits a high-frequency noise which is audible and unfriendly to young ears, but people over 20 usually can’t hear it. (I know there’s a Logan’s Run joke there somewhere.)

This is the same frequency that kids have been using for their cellphone rings, so older people don’t know when they have incoming calls. Anyway, there is now an uproar from the children’s commission for England and groups like civil liberties group Liberty. Their campaign is called “Buzz Off”. The device effects everyone under 25, and guess what? That includes babies. Then they site that it discriminates against all kids, whether they’re bad seeds or not. Obviously, they have some valid points. I propose that anyone who turns 30 needs to be introduced to carousel and euthanized. Should they run, a sandman needs to be dispatched who can shout, “We’ve got a runner.” and go for their blaster. Ah…There’s the joke.

Potty Time watch lets kids know when to go

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2007

Potty Time watch

The Potty Watch from Potty Time is designed to help young parents potty train their kids without having to go potty themselves. The watch is worn by the toddler, and plays music and flashes lights in 30, 60 or 90 minute intervals and then resets itself automatically.

When the lights flash, that’s the signal to drop what they’re doing and head towards the potty. What an amazing concept, you not only teach the little rug-rat to go potty, but you teach him that gadgets are fun. Next thing you know, you have bred a good little consumer.(Who can relieve themselves no less) The only downside that I see is if they become too dependant on the watch as they grow. Just imagine in 20-30 years, as businessmen and women everywhere rush to the bathroom the minute their watch beeps.
