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.

Wow, this razor is made from a single folded sheet of water-resistant paper

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.
