(with a single exception)

It’s always hard to find the perfect Christmas gift, especially for elderly people. They have everything already, that’s why I thought about the carbon monoxide alarm and the cardholder.

For kids of 9+, the hoverboard is a topper! In combination with the hover cart, it becomes a very attractive and functional toy even to use for younger kids 6+.

The Youniversity Activity Centre and the Fisher-Price Learn Fun World Globe are educational responsible toys for the youngest of 1-4 years of age.

And who doesn’t want that silver cashmere blanket for cozy hours on the coach?

A few months back I bought the Stepper inSPORTline EasyStep – the kids of the daycare are quite fond of it.

Decorate wood and make your own nametag at the front door with the wood burner, the children here are having a lot of fun with it.

Airwheel Self Balancing Electric Unicycle

When you want to have something original, the airwheel self balancing electric unicycle is amazing!

airwheel self balancing electric unicycle


MANUFACTORY:  Metem Technology

CATEGORY:  Outdoor

AGE:  12 up


MATERIAL: synthetic

PRICE:  € 360


Product Description

Relaxed floating through the streets or stunting with your friends while you transport yourself from the station to school or work. That’s pure enjoyment! Enjoy the freedom this electric one-wheel-cycle will give you.

Your body is your steering wheel. By leaning forward slightly the airwheel accelerates up to 18 km / h. Braking is done by sitting back. Easy! Do not worry about your balance, the gyroscope together with the fuzzy logic software are always taking care for the right balance. So you can literally without falling move towards all sides.

Learning to ride on the Airwheel X3 is easy, within a few hours you have mastered it. The Airwheel X3 comes standard with a workout set of two side wheels that you can fix on the footpegs.

On a single charge of only 120 minutes (80% battery load in 90 minutes) the AirWheel battery X3 runs 18 to 23 kilometers. The unicycle is easy to carry in bus or train, thanks to the handle, the optional matching backpack can be ordered with it, and the Airwheels minimum weight is 9.8 kilograms. Conversely, the compact unicycle may carry 120 kilos.

Airwheel Self Balancing Electric Unicycle

Everyone is watching YOU!

The Airwheel is here and it is absolutely bonkers!
This self balancing one wheel electric unicycle scooter solves your transportation needs.

And although it is easy to learn, due to the balance side wheels, you really will feel some muscle ache the next day. When you own a pair of shin guards it’s recommended to wear a pair faced the inside of your shins until you’ve got the hang of it. The key is to shift your weight from one side to the other, and in the meanwhile keeping pressure on your feet so the wheel stays in motion.

The worst Kids toys, my review

Every day I am looking at Cartoon network, or some other kids TV channel. I am so surprised about the terrible toys grown-ups come up with. The ads which are displayed to kids. The wannahaves!!

I will share my top 10 in random order of the most terrible kids toys they have invented nowadays. And under the video or picture you will find my comment on these toys.

The worst kids toys in my opinion.

 1. Zoomer Zuppies – € 39,95

This is so terrible. The ad is saying it’s ideal for children who can’t have their own puppy be cause of an allergy. I spontaniously develop an allergy for these fony toys. So are the Zoomer Dinos an Kitties

Click here If you still want to buy a Zoomer Zuppie

2. DigiDino Apollo – € 9,99

Never ever saw something as mind blowing like this to give your children.

Click here when you want to buy a DigiDino

The same story you can apply for the 3. DigiBirds –

€ 4.99 a piece


Click here if you want to purchase the Digibirds

4. The wall racer – € 41.06

Who the heck, wants his children to ride with cars on the wall??

Some comments I found on the internet:

After half an hour the car was already gone.
New batteries … unfortunately without result

Does not move right
The wall racer is a setback. He sticks well as the windows but does not run on it. Also on the floor he comes barely ahead. This is probably because the wheels underneath not protrude enough to drive. I returned the car.

If you still want to buy the Air Hogs Zero Gravity Drive click here

5. Charley Sheen bobblehead – € 49.95

What on earth are you thinking? Giving this to your child!

When you really want to buy this head, click here

6. Peacekeepers camouflage rifle 59 cm – € 8.74

 Peacekeepers camouflage geweer 59 cm kids toy

What a terrible way to teach your kids about peace.
To give a rifle to an eight year old child? Would that learn the child something about peace?

7. Cobra Attack – € 27.99

This video is in Spanish but it shows enough about the imitation of this toy. To buy this  very dangerous cobra click here

It’s from the same category as

8. Bello bites – € 24.99

Click here to buy this doggy

9. Walking Dead doll – € 28.95

Walking Dead Doll

Age 4 year?? Great! Which twisted mind is bringing something  like this on the market?

You can buy this stuff here

10. Pie Face – € 43.99

pie face

Well,  need I say something about this? Spray can whipped cream? The stupidity slaps you right in the face.

Buy it here, exclusive cream

The worst Kids toys are of all times.

Not only today, but in the past there has been quite a few missers too. To name a few.

Skipper which you could stretch and give boobies.
A saddle for Daddy? OMG!
Little kiddies smoking package???
And the inventer of the badman waterpistol surely saw his error after the production of this toy.

Vintage Toys – Toys without Batteries

Vintage Toys –  toys without batteries.

When I run through a toys store nowadays, it seems to be quite often you need to put in batteries in toys. Most toys have to produce light and noise or have to move or fly by themselves. That is why I wrote this blog “Vintage toys – toys without batteries”.

construxions from Totum

I wonder which effect this has on our environment. All these batteries need to be replaced sometime. Batteries contain acid, harmful substances to the environment. A battery belongs to the small chemical waste. It also takes a lot of energy, raw materials, and CO2 emissions to make batteries.

Production of batteries


The production of batteries consumes a lot of energy. For the environment is avoiding using them therefore always the best. Some types of batteries contain heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury or lead. Heavy metals can cause health damage and ecosystem damage if they get into the environment. Heavy metals are therefore increasingly used in batteries. Since 2008, rechargeable nickel cadmium (NiCd) batteries are forbidden except in cordless tools and alarm systems. Mercury is also banned in most batteries. Only button cells may still contain mercury, but no more than 2 percent of the total weight.

Chemical waste

The harmful substances in a battery are produced during combustion. Therefore it is very important to return used batteries as chemical waste. Most supermarkets have a battery return policy.

Toys without Batteries

When you are gone buy new toys for your children, would you consider toys without batteries?


Here are some toys I want to bring to your attention.

You can see how we spend several enjoyable hours with to tattooing, even I had to get some!
Super tattoos for boy or girl

 Phlatball, a discus, and ball in one.


Vintage Toys - toys without batteries

Press the ball flat, throw it as discus and catch it as the ball! As he flies through the air, he jumps back into its original shape! It is made of a soft material, it can float in the water.

I hope you like the toys I found for you,

fun to play with, without any batteries.

Kids have energy enough by themselves, they really don’t need an extra battery. When my son was 2,5 years old, he was completely obsessed by a roll of scotch tape. He could play with it for hours. Sticking his fingers or feet together, taping 2 chairs together, making a whole sticky cobweb of the room.

When you click on the pictures you find out where you can buy these toys.
