This summer, hang out on top of a giant cockroach while at the beach

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Products on Monday 23 June 2014

Here’s a totally sensible piece of advice: quell your fear of cockroaches by actually lying down on top of one as you go for a dip in the pool! The 6-foot-tall Giant Cockroach is an inflatable pool and beach float that’s a hoot to be lounging around in come summer time. Or better yet, give it as a gift to someone who hates the little critters!

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Products on Tuesday 17 June 2014

Here’s a fact: paper-cuts are pure unadulterated evil. Like the rose’s thorn, it’s the fly in the ointment that stops a generally awesome thing (yes, paper and roses are similarly awesome) from being 100% people-safe. Picture this: a shiny new letter falls through your door. Covered in real handwriting and bursting with potential secrets and excitements, you trip over yourself just to get to it as fast as possible.
