I’m serious — don’t tell my granpda. He doesn’t even know what an iPad is but he’ll want to know, then you’ll get sucked into a half hour conversation that will probably end with him falling asleep mid-sentence. This is the iRock (really?), a $ 1,300 rocking chair that generates energy from rocking to charge your iPad and power the speakers. I don’t know, I feel like trying to use your iPad while rocking might cause motion sickness. And motion sickness, as you may have heard, leads to babies. “Huh?” It’s true, my friend went on a cruise and got pregnant!
Thanks to Markin, who’s holding out for a porch swing version.

Remember GotWood Workshop’s custom stormtrooper head chair? Well they’re back with a Vader one. And let me tell you, this guy is gonna be heavy-breathing right down your buttcrack. NOT-SO-FUN FACT: there are people in the world who are into that. Like, that is their THING. It’s true, I’ve read their Craigslist ads before. They are all, “WANTED: casual encounter with butt-breather. Just some heavy breathing right down the crack, NOTHING KINKY. I will provide sparkling cider and some light snacks.” LOLOL, who drinks sparkling cider?!
Thanks to Steven, the man behind the chair. Well, not literally. He’s not a ninja disguised as a green tarp, he just built the thing.
This is the Mood Rocking Bed from Fab. It’s a real bed, and they’re available from $ 2,835 (for a full) to $ 3,665 (for a king). They also sell a twin for $ 1,665, but come on, nobody’s sleeping in a twin. “What about kids?” They don’t need $ 1,700 beds, that’s what. I slept on the floor in a sleeping bag until I was 13. And you know what? I did it from 15 to 30 too, after experimenting with a hammock for a year. Also, who sleeps in the middle of a field like that? Because if I wake up to a cow trying to eat my covers I’m gonna be pissed. No, no I’m not. I’m gonna think I’m in Oz or something. “The prison?” Yeah, the prison, dummy. God I should shank you so hard right now. Hey — have you ever wanted to be having sex, but then, instead of climaxing, puking instead? Well that’s what this bed is for. Alternatively, have sex in a rowboat. Just saying, I saw two counselors do it at summer camp once! Then Jason killed them. BOOM — Friday the 13th tie-in, count it.
Hit the jump for another shot in case you were wondering what the bed might look like in your unfinished garage.

While I’m sure these are 100% safe, it’s a little odd to see this wee one sitting in a Belkinz cardboard high chair that folds flat and is completely disposable if/when junior goes lateral on the mashed potatoes.
The kit, made by an Australian firm, is available for purchase but it might be a little hard to find around these parts. It is good for kids who are up to 20 months of age and seems like a perfect solution toting to restaurants, grandma’s house, and other places you might not want to drag your entire high chair.
The Feedaway is “safe, strong and stores away in a tiny space” and it is also presumably, in some way, water and fireproof. It takes about three minutes to assemble (once you’ve assembled a few of them). It is cut out of one sheet of cardboard “to minimize waste.” It’s been around for quite a while, actually, but only is just rolling out in retail quantities, which is kind of exciting in a boring, parents-of-a-young-child kind of way.

In far less depressing (non-squid) animal news, a 12-year old African spur-thighed tortoise NAMED GAMERA (♫ Gamera is really neat, Gamera is filled with meat ♫) had to have its front left leg amputated after a severe burn and tissue damage. So what did the vets do? What any Transformers fan would — epoxied a swivel wheel from somebody’s desk chair on him. BU-BWAM! — Gamera rolled out of surgery with a new lease on life. Oh man, just think if he’d had a set of wheels when he was racing that cocky hare (NOT assy fur). He…probably would’ve flown off the course and crashed into a tree or something.
Hit the jump for one more shot and a video of Gamera bein’ all “I don’t if I got a wheel for a leg, I’m here for the grass.”Related Posts:
