MudWatt can teach everyone about clean, dirty energy

by Caitlyn - on November 30th, 2016

You can make someone sit down in a classroom and read a book about how to put together an IKEA chair, but until they’re building it, not all of the dots are going to connect. Humans need real world experiences to understand why and how things are happening around them. Any day you don’t learn something new, you’ve probably died.

This Lunch Box Placemat keeps kids healthy and parents sane

Having kids is like signing up for a full time in-home job, with a boss that doesn’t know how to be professional. On top of trying to mold your child into a functioning human being, you also have to keep up with your own life, and the wrenches your bundles of joy throw into the works. Cleaning up messes will be a constant state of existence, making anything that’s not machine-washable or something that can be thrown into the dishwasher another chore on top of your already busy days.

The Sphero Force Band controls BB-8 with the wave of your hand

by Caitlyn

When you watched Star Wars for the first time, how badly did you wish you could use the Force? While it is more complicated than simple telekinesis, that part is the one we all hone in on. For kids, that is amplified by a thousand, and they will pretend they have it and wave their arms around like mad regardless of whether or not they actually affect anything in the tangible world.

It may not be today, or tomorrow, but we really are approaching the time when robots will have sentience. While that could either be a good or bad thing, we won’t know until it happens. Until then, we can have little robot friends that have a bit of a human streak programmed into them.

by Edwin

soundbubNew parents always find it a joy to provide their little one with nothing but the very best when it comes to everything — from food to bedding, even the baby chair and bibs.

Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel unleashes one’s creative powers

by Edwin

van-gogh-easelThe imagination and mind of a child is truly a wonderful thing. In fact, give them something as simple as a cardboard box, and they will be able to turn it into a time machine or a spaceship, or simply something else that amazes you. When they are bored, do not throw them a tablet or smartphone to play games with, but rather, how about trying a sheet of paper and some crayons? If you think that doing so is too messy to clean up afterwards, then the $59.95 Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel might be worth looking up as an alternative to unleash their artistic tendencies.

The Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel is an illuminating easel that lights up a child’s illustrations. It will do so by an integrated backlight, as the black dry-erase board enhances vivid artwork created thanks to the quartet of dry-erase neon markers that comes with the package. When you need to start over or are done with your masterpiece, the board can be wiped clean with a paper towel like a traditional dry-erase board. The mounted marker tray prevents the art instruments from getting lost and the easel folds up for compact storage. Some assembly is required, with a trio of AA batteries powering the Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel.

The Leaf Faucet Extender helps little hands reach the water

Little kids don’t want to be little kids, even from the time they’re just learning to walk. They want to do everything on their own, and come running back to mom and dad when they realize things are a bit more complicated than they thought they would be. You want to help them be as independent as possible so that those habits of being self-reliant will follow them into adulthood, and those little moments start whenever you let them.

The Kid Switch – let your kids feel like grown ups

by Caitlyn

light-extender

When kids are little, they want to do everything themselves. Parents are meant to guide these little tykes in the right direction, but are essentially just prepping them to learn how to manage the world on their own. It only makes sense that they would want to be grown ups sooner rather than later, but once you realize what that actually means, you want to switch back.
