The Water Bomb Factory will arm you lots of fun this summer

Where was this product when I was growing up? Aqua Antics’ Water Bomb Factory is a child’s dream come true. Just watching the video (below) conjures up (slightly evil) thoughts of saturating family, friends and foe. Overton’s – basically a watersport enthusiast’s supermarket – says the Water Bomb Factory lets children (of all ages) tie up to ten balloons a minute, which could arm kids with a sizable stockpile in no time at all.  Read More

The mini Ferrari F40 - perhaps the only affordable Ferrari for most of us

Let’s say you’re the proud parent of a budding Michael Schumacher – he rips up the track in his go-kart, leaving others in his wake, and you know it’s only a matter of time before he progresses through to the F1 circus and makes everyone in the family filthy rich. But what does he drive to school? Can't take the kart, and certainly not a Prius. No! The only vehicle junior would feel comfortable in is a Ferrari – and this F40 fits the bill perfectly … small size, small engine, small price tag (relatively).  Read More

In many countries, the law requires young children to be fitted in age- and size-appropriate seating within a vehicle.

New parents discover quite quickly how loudly their newborn can scream when they’re not happy. But working out the cause of the problem is unfortunately pretty much a guessing game. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a device that could tell you exactly what was wrong with your baby? It might not be as preposterous as it sounds - Japanese scientists claim they have developed a statistical computer program that can analyze the differences in a baby's cries. So, future baby monitors could be capable of alerting parents that their child is tired, hungry, needs a diaper change, or is in pain.  Read More

The Ride On Carry On takes some of the pain out of traveling with kids
