    OMG I love playing the floor is lava! This is 'Action Movie Kid', a series of twelve short videos (they'll play in a row as a playlist) featuring a 3-year old on adventures that his dad has added special effects to. They're all pretty cute. There is very little video footage... / Continue →

    This is the £3,250,000 (~$5.35-million) Victorian mansion for sale in London. It has 7,000 square feet, 11 bedrooms, a ton of shitters, and a spaceship playhouse in the attic. Obviously, the kids that grew up there were spoiled rotten. Although those mission control computer... / Continue →

    Hasbro has announced a new line of Transformer toys that abandon the old, complicated transformation process and will instead transform with "the push of a button or flick of the wrist." Why? I'm not sure, but I think it's either because kids are getting lazier or Hasbro's ge... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of pics from Cardboard Box Office, a photographic series by new parents Libby and Leon, who recreate scenes from classic movies with their son, Orson. In case you couldn't tell from the sweded quality, all the scenes were created using only objects they alrea... / Continue →

    This is the $75 Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat (already in existence: an iPad potty chair). It's a baby chair with an iPad dock that dangles over your little bundle of bad vision. Will it help your child grow up to be a technology professional? No. Will it give them somet... / Continue →

    Forts, not farts. Squishy farts are totally different and, at least in my experience, often result in running to the bathroom to check your underwear. These (the blue pieces) are Squishy Forts, modular pillow fort construction kits designed by Ross Currie (and not Marie Curie... / Continue →

    This is a series of colored pictures created by Redditor Tatsputin and his children. They draw pictures before he leaves on a business trip, and while he's away he adds the color and returns them when he's back home. I do something similar with my kids when I'm away. "I thou... / Continue →

    This is the Reading Net designed by Spanish creative studio Playoffice. Of course I'm not sure how much credit Playoffice actually deserves. It's not like they invented nets, they just came up with the idea of hanging them in home libraries to give your kids a place to hang o... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LEGO featuring a father and son bonding over building things together. It's pretty cute. Plus the kid speaks in a sweet British accent, which I'm going to start mimicking for the rest of the day so everybody things I'm a dandy lad. Here comes the som... / Continue →

    Whoa, bro -- socks with sandals and no conductor's hat? This is the $23,000 Amusement Park Ride-On Railroad available from Hammacher Schlemmer (who else?). It's the 1:8 scale rideable train of your dreams. Could you imagine waking up Christmas morning to see one of these in ... / Continue →

    This is another compilation of BadDad's Vine videos. Like most sequels, it's nowhere near as good as the first. Still, there were a couple gems in there. Also, anybody know where I can rent one of those carpet cleaners like that kid is riding? A dog puked in my bedroom. "J... / Continue →

    This is 'Danielle', a video by Anthony Cerniello of a face aging sixty years in five minutes. It was made using a ton of photographs that were taken of similar looking family members at a family reunion, and the marvel of modern morphing technology. Cool, now show me what it ... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of drawings by Celeste Doodles (me too -- I doodle!) imagining what some classic 90's cartoon characters look like as hipstery twenty-somethings, including some Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Pepper Ann and Magic Schoolbus action. This Chuckie one from Rugrats t... / Continue →

    This is a three-minute supercut of my childhood idol Mr. Wizard being rude to children. Except not really, they're just all out of context. Say you walked into the middle of a conversation and all you heard was "the second biggest penis I've ever seen." Like, you don't know ... / Continue →

    Four year-old Anthony Smith suffers from hearing loss and has to wear a blue hearing aid (Blue?! MAKE IT FLESH TONE). The only problem is he doesn't like wearing his hearing aid because none of the superheroes in comics do. Enter Anthony's concerned mother, stage left. No --... / Continue →
