There’s a huge market for drones these days, but most people are looking for the ones that shoot video of some sort.

Take flight in fresh air or zip the mini SKEYE Pico Drone through your office in between meetings—we guarantee it’s more fun than a coffee-break.

Deal Of The Day: 13% Off On PPK Rubber Band Gun

Turn Any Branch Into A Sword


Kids will go into the woods and pretend to be swordsmen. This is the way kids work. We think. But if they’re going to be doing that, there’s a chance one of them will get their knuckles hit and come back home in tears. That won’t happen if you get them the Nature Sabre-sword Creator from MonkeyBuisness. It’s a simple silicone attachment that fits at the end of a branch and creates a finger guard that not only makes the “sword” look more legit, it also gives your child some semblance of protection. They’re $11, comes in three colors, and is available now.

Everbright Is Like A Giant Lite-Brite For Adults


Remember the Lite-Brite? Yeah, we had fun with that as kids, but now that we’re adults, we’re delighted to realize we could still let our creative juices flow with an updated, “grown-up” version of the product. It’s called Everbright, and it’s a giant 4′ X 8′ wall-mounted board with 462 full-spectrum LEDs. You can set the color of each dial by turning it, and can reset the whole board at the touch of a button. The board is also capable of animations.

It’s a great product to get for an office, for instance, where you can foster team-building and a calmer, more relaxed work atmosphere. You can, of course, get it for the home too, but at $25,000 for the mid-line model, you’re going to want to think twice about just how badly you want to relive your childhood at home.

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.

Stick-Lets Branch Connectors Make Fort Building A Breeze


These have been on the market for a couple of years, but news tends to go in cycles and here we are discussing them again. The Stick-Lets are a set of silicone connectors that are used to, well, connect branches together in an effort to create a self-standing structure. They come in different shapes, allowing you to build your treehouse/fort with whatever loose sticks or branches you find. You can stretch them over and over, and use them and reuse them almost indefinitely. It’s a fun activity to do with your kids, or by yourself if you fancy the outdoors a lot. Prices start at $2.75, while an 18 piece kit costs $48.50.

Arckit Is Like LEGO For Budding Architects


Building stuff out of LEGO is great, but you’re always aware that you’re looking at LEGO pieces; stuff made like this has a distinctive look and feel to it. But if you’re into creating more realistic structures, Arckit may have what you’re looking for. It’s dubbed “The Architectural Model Building Tool”, and contains modular pieces allowing you to construct modern looking homes in all shapes and forms.

ARCKIT is a freeform model building tool that allows architects and everyone to physically explore designs and bring their projects to life. The interconnecting components use no glue and are completely modular, making it possible to create a diverse range of scaled structures that can be used as working models to communicate ideas to clients and to showcase finished projects.

The kits come in four sizes, called AGo, A60, A120, and A240. The numbers represent the possible maximum floor area in square meters, and kits feature 160+ pieces, up to 620+ pieces for the A240. Additional component packs can be purchased, although prices for the entire range are not on the lower side. AGo costs €59.99, or roughly $65USD, while A240 will set you back a hefty €339, or about $376USD.

It’s 2015 And Where’s My Hoverboard? Here. Here’s Your Hoverboard


Ok, so it’s probably not what you had in mind. But let’s face it, this Back To The Future Desktop Hoverboard is about as close as you’re going to get to the ‘real thing’, at least for now. The pyrolytic graphite board hovers over a rare earth magnet base; give it a little push and it’ll go back and forth for a bit. Sure, it’s not as satisfying as carving some turns in the air, but at least it’s officially licensed merchandise and not come cheap trinket. The desktop toy will attract a bit of attention, and keep you excited about the possibility of seeing the real thing one day soon (Google might actually be able to build one, but won’t). It’s $40.
