Horsey Rides Just Got More Fun


Kids, they’ll believe just about anything you tell them. It’s cute, but what if you could make your stories even more believable? The Hoppe Hoppe Reiter 2.0 is a stuffed horse head with straps; tie it to your knee and turn your leg into a somewhat more realistic looking horse for your kid. Then those horsey rides on your knee will be even cooler, and you’ll spend even more time getting annoyed that you introduced this toy to you child since he won’t stop asking you for more. It’s fun and all, but I’m not sure I’d be wanting to pay €34.95 (or roughly $38USD) for a stuffed toy. Then again, I’m not a fan of children in general, so perhaps a more fatherly type might be more inclined.

Batmobile Baby Stroller: For Your Little BatBaby

Batmobile baby stroller

He’s your little superhero, and nothing anyone says will change your mind. Of course we’re talking about none other than your offspring because yes, parents can be biased that way.

If you happen to be a creative dad who’s up for DIY projects that’ll make your kid grin from ear-to-ear, then you can take a page from Tim Baker’s book. Obviously being a pro prop designer for Hollywood means that he’s got skills most dads don’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build your own little Batmobile stroller (but you might need the help of your able-bodied friends and SO, too.)

Budsies Turns Kids’ Artwork Into Plushies


Kids grow up way too fast, don’t they? If they’re still at the stage where they love to draw and doodle, then you can give them the perfect present this year by getting them Budsies. These aren’t your ordinary plush toys, and you can pretty much tell at first glance. The designs are unusual and look like they jumped out from the pages of your kid’s notebook…

That might very well be the case, because Budsies are actually custom made based on drawings and children’s artwork sent in by parents.

Step Up Kids’ Chair is a High Chair, Stool, and Slide In One

Step Up high chair

When you’ve got a kid, you’ll quickly realize that your once-spacious apartment is too small for comfort. A crib there, a playmat there, a high chair in the corner… If moving to a bigger place isn’t an option, then you might want to go for modular furniture like Step Up. It starts out as a high chair, but you can easily transform it into a step stool when you need one and a slide when it’s time for playtime.

Kickball Ice Cream Maker: I Kick for Ice Cream

Kickball Ice Cream Maker



Kicking a ball is lots of fun, and ice cream is always a welcome treat. I think it’s safe to say that something that combines both is destined to become a huge hit, like the Kickball Ice Cream Maker. The name is pretty much self explanatory. Just pour in cream, sugar, vanilla, and your flavoring of choice into the ball’s food-safe sealed compartment. Fill the space outside of that compartment with ice and rock salt, seal it up, and start kicking the ball around.

Twenty minutes of play will give you one pint of delicious ice cream to enjoy. Not bad, considering everyone had a ton of fun while making the icy treat.

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is available online for $35.

Toymail Lets Parents Send Voicemail to Their Kids’ Toy


Being a working parent is hard. Aside from missing out on some of your kid’s firsts, it sucks not being able to hang out and bond with your offspring as much as you want to. You can, however, harness the power of modern technology and make them feel your presence one way or another, like with Toymail.

It’s a small, mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. The awesome part is that your child can send you messages, too, simply by hitting ‘reply.’

This Pen Transforms Into Optimus Prime and Vice Versa

Transformer Convoy Pen

What’s cooler than robots? Well, robots that can transform into cars and helicopters and other stuff, like pens, for instance. For the first two, you’ve got the Transformers that do exactly just that. For the latter, you’ve got the Transformer Convoy Pen by Sentinel. It’s not exactly the most comfortable or handiest pens to use or hold when it’s in pen form, but the awesomeness of it when it’s in robot toy form more than makes up for it.

And who else should it transform to but Optimus Prime?

SlideRider Turns Stairs Into a Slide


Running down the stairs two steps at a time, sliding down the banister when the adults aren’t looking–they’re fun to do (but not as fun when you’re in a hurry), although it’s not really the safe way to go when you’re heading down a flight of stairs. It could be fun again for everyone in the household, though, with the installation of the SlideRider.

It’s a set of mats that fold out and connect to transform stairs into slides. All you have to do is take it out, connect the different components to form the slide, and lay it on top of the stairs. And voila–instant slide!
