In this century, with hectic schedule and technology advancement, it is important to have quality bonding time with you family and friends. Wouldn’t it be good if there is a fun activity that you do with them in the comfort of your own home or cafes – and learn about interesting facts at the same time?
The Guinness World Records Board Game could give you just the thing. The board game is built based on the Guinness World Record book- in case you are unsure about what the book is about, it is an annual arbiter of the fastest, longest, tallest and other strange superlatives.
The Guinness World Records Board Game like the name suggests is the board game version of the book – which calls for family and friends to attempt answers to absurd trivia. These trivia is the main selling point to make the Guinness the bestseller since the year 1955. Some of the question that may be attempted includes “how did Charlie bell move 37 pounds of maggot in one hour?”.
As you and your family (or friends) move about the board, all of you will have the chance to set some of your own records (within the household, or your circle of friends). Some examples of records that you may attempt include tying the most knots on a rope, placing the most dominoes on the edge, or even performing the chicken dance! The best part is that you do not have to look far for the tools for these records, as the rope and dominoes are included in the package.
This board game is suitable for children from 8 years of age onwards. The size of the game is 11” in height, 11” in width, and weighs 4 and a half pounds.
One issue I have with dog-walkers is when they fail to pick up feces left behind after their dog needed the toilet. Some people are ignorant and believe they don’t have to pick it up; others are just too lazy. Today we have a pet gadget that is ideal for these people.
The gadget is called the AshPoopie. The AshPoopie aims to make it easier to clean up dog waste by providing a collection and disposal device. Although just a concept currently, the AshPoopie designed by Paulee CleanTech based in Israel aims to be a revolutionary pet product.
The idea behind the AshPoopie is to turn foul smelling dog feces into sterile and hygienic odorless ash. It does this by utilizing special AshPoopie capsules positioned into the hand held device that can be mixed with feces. Firstly, a button on the AshPoopie is pressed which opens and extends the device over the feces. A second button is pressed which scoops the feces up, once scooped up the AshPoopie capsule (containing neutralizing chemicals) is releases which mixes with the feces at high speed and results in a harmless ash being produced. The entire process takes less than a minute.
There is no information regarding the price and availability of the AshPoopie so far, however it is defiantly a concept that I will be keeping an eye on for the future.
Check out the video of the AshPoopie below.

It is a bright and sunny Sunday morning where you are out jogging in the park when a blurry object suddenly zooms by in front of you and stops a few feet from the main path. Shifting your attention to the object, you spot a lady picking up a grinning toddler and fussing over him.
Every toddler deserves some fun and exercise before they are placed into the cruel society to fend for themselves. Unfortunately, nowadays, many toddlers are spoilt with their parent’s iPhone or iPads. They might not know how to play it, but the curious nature of the toddler certainly attracts them to these technological apparatuses. Fortunately, Hammacher Schlemmer’s Soapbox Derby kids gadget – priced at $149.95, is here to save the little one’s day!
The Toddler’s Soapbox Derby consists of a platform and a gently inclined 6-foot track. To play, a ride-on coupe can be placed onto the platform while the toddler ascends a sturdy step up the platform. Upon mounting the coupe, toddlers will be able to zoom down the ramp for an adrenaline filled ride across the room or an open field. In addition to that, toddlers can also pit their miniature race cars against each other by launching them down the ramp or even slide down the ramp without the coupe for a variety of fun.
The Soapbox Derby is in fact, very compact and can be easily transportable as each section can be removed and cleaned separately before fitting into the base, which comes with an integrated set of wheels.
Have you ever played Guitar Hero and happen to love the game? Is jamming buttons and moving your fingers up and down as if strumming invisible guitar threads something you enjoy? Well, if you do enjoy it, why not take a look at the Strumdrumano?
The Strumdrumano is a truly wicked instrument. At the first glance, most of you might mistake it for a regular Guitar Hero’s guitar and dismiss it from your thoughts. However, if you take a closer look at the device, you’ll notice some very interesting features.
For instance, by extending the folding neck, the device transforms into a guitar consisting of five buttons arranged side to side on a fret board. Whereas, on the body of the Strumdrumano, a strum bar detects movement of the hand and is capable of playing five distinctive and different styles of notes such as electric rock and so on. A whammy bar, on the other hand, modulates the sustained sounds or embellishes in a riff mode, producing impressive trills and arpeggios.
When the neck is folded away, there are four percussive sound effect pads that allow you to put your drumming skills to test, and if you’re not into that, there’s always a choice of flipping over the back to reveal a hidden piano and immerse yourself in various piano tunes. For a price of $69.95, the Strumdrumano offers a choice of three instruments and the ability of playing along with your choice of tunes by connecting it to a MP3 player.
