    Sea Squirts Buoyancy Vest Doubles As Fish Costume

    Life vests specially when it comes to children are very important but no fun also.   And when something’s no fun to wear, your kid will likely take it off as soon as you turn your back.  Sea Squirts’ buoyancy vests are specially-designed to double as sea creature costumes, allowing kids to roleplay as Jaws, Nemo or this shark-like submersible while wearing them in the water. The vests come in two variants: a swim-assist vest and a life jacket.  The former [...]

    Hela Throwing Disc: Hey Guys, I’m A Frisbee With A Hole

    We all love to throw stuff.  Hence, the sheer brilliance of a “throwable” robot and the timelessness of the frisbee.  Over the years, we’ve seen various redesigns of that basic throwing disc.  The Hela is one of the newer breed. Unlike a regular frisbee, it’s got a large hole for air to pass through in the middle.  Unlike the donut-shaped Aerobie, it’s actually more oblong in form — like a slice of hard-boiled egg with the yolk taken out.

    HandiRack Is An Inflatable, Universal Roof Rack

    Permanent, aerodynamic roof racks are awesome.  They make any vehicle much more versatile. I have moved from surfboards, wind surfers and even a new lawn mower (while in the box) on top of my car. But they can be expensive and take some effort to install.  Also if you are on surf trip to lets say Florida or Costa Rica and want to rent a surf board, your only option is to rent a SUV and throw the board on [...]
