BBQ Apron Set

by Al

BBQ Apron

This has got to be the perfect accompaniment to the beer holster we covered yesterday, the BBQ Apron Set. I’d rather this had been a BBQ Utility Belt as aprons don’t look very manly but I’m sure a roaring BBQ will make up for that. The BBQ Apron Set holds all the implements you’ll need to do your outdoor cooking and charred sausage retrieval missions. Available from Ministry of Gadget.

The Pac a Mow is actually a bit of a sensible idea, if you’ve ever tried …

Funny Little Scary Owl

Robotic Owl

If you have a pigeon or rodent problem in your garden then this wise old owl may be the answer. Look Hoo’s Talking Owl has various authentic owl actions, like eye, head and wing movement and of cause the good old owl hooting. All of which is activated by the built in motion detector.

Solar Powered 8m Airship for only Ten pounds

by Al

Solar Heated Balloon

This solar powered gadget looks a load more fun than the solar powered ventilator we wrote about earlier (though not as much fun as the Wego Kite Tube). The black Solar Airship is probably the most fun you can have in the park with your clothes on. To use the sausage shaped Airship, simply fill with air which I assume is done by holding it open and running across the …
