Crib Dribbler – for the Truly Perfect Present

by Julie

We all know how hard finding the perfect gift can be, I’m always on the lookout for the item that will wow the crowd, and of course the recipient. It gets more difficult as we get older, probably because we lose our lust for toys, and the mundane stuff we’re left with in terms of “grown-up” presents… well, they’re just not that much fun to give.

IntelliGender – Know Before you Go

by Julie

When I was pregnant I was fairly certain I was having a boy. Being a tomboy myself, I was convinced my body wasn’t actually capable of producing a girl. Later, I found out it’s the dad that determines the sex of the child, and after the 37th viewing of Cinderella, and 168 tea parties with obligatory manicures, I guess I was as wrong as I’ve ever been, about anything…ever.

Fantasy Caskets – For your Dream Funeral

by Julie

We all know its inevitable, we’re all going to die. Quite frankly I’m not exactly sure how we so easily cope with that fact… but we do. I guess technically its the last relatively major event of our lives (or does the fact that we’re dead mean it doesn’t actually qualify?) Okay let’s not get philosophical here. I think planning for our eventual demise is a good thing, we plan …

by Julie

Oh the joys of mans best friend, there’s something to be said about a creature that loves you so unconditionally. I’ve had a few dogs in my time and they were all special, and they all let me know they were fairly fond of me as well. I have to say that my daughter and husband were never as happy to see me as my dog. Sure, you might say …

Learn to Glide from the Master

by Alison

Years ago we told you about Yves Rossey, a.k.a. Jetman, when he managed to pull off some aerial loops and roll himself like a plane while wearing a jet pack, thousands of feet up in the air and at over 200 mph. He was 51 at the time. Rossey must be getting bored. He released another video a few weeks ago and he is jet free this time. Yep. A …

Make Your Own Iron Man Costume?

by Alison

Getting dumped sucks. It is safe to say that we have all experienced some sort of breakup in our lives. Maybe it was back in 3rd grade or maybe it was yesterday. Some poor guy in Germany recently got dumped by his girlfriend. Rather than sulk he channeled his knowledge of lasers and created an Iron Man arm piece.

What Santa Did Not Deliver

by Alison

Do you ever wonder what the wish lists of the super-rich entail during the holidays? When have bank accounts like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison the world is pretty much yours, I’m sure.  Wired decided to look back on some of the year’s most stupefying products in “Overhyped, Overpriced: 2012′s Insanely Expensive Gear.” I’m guessing these are the things that Bill and Larry probably have on their lists.

Zero Gravity Balloon WeightPacs – No Strings Attached

by Julie

I’m always on the lookout for interesting items that can set the mood for a good party, or even commemorate a visit from Santa or the Tooth Fairy. Nothing says “surprise” on Christmas morning better than some nifty visual effect that seems magical, and as simple as the concept may be, these Zero Gravity Balloon Weights might just be part of our Christmas.
