A NASA scientist working as a research engineer in his day job took a couple of weeks and some metal, wood and cement to build for his kids a real-life MadCat straight out of Mech Commander in his own backyard. Actually, we’re not sure if it’s really for him or the kids. Then again, with […]
There are cats. And then, there are awkwardly sitting cats — balancing themselves delicately with feline bums firmly planted on the floor, chair, bed, whatever — looking down in the dumps, lost in the woods, startled, or just… awkward. That makes it just another instance of ‘cats being cats even when it’s nothing very catlike’.
There are all sorts of niche reading groups out there, but we never thought we’d live to see this one. In Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, a reading group made up of grade-school students who read to cats actually exists. Hey, it’s for a good purpose: it helps them get better at reading.
Drawings by Kids with Serious Health Conditions Turned Into Magical Photographs – Starring Themselves
In this ambitious and heart-wrenching project, Shawn Van Daele takes drawings done by children born or living with serious health conditions, and brings them to life as real photographs – starring the children themselves, showing them that Anything Is Possible. Indeed.
Think back to when you were a child and all those crazy bad words you knew. The ‘sh’ word, the ‘f’ word, perhaps even worse. This little kids makes us laugh with all the bad words he can come up with in the presence of his dad. Like, ‘butthole’, ‘butthead’, ‘butt crack’, ‘butt nose’, ‘butt […]
Kids always get away with baring their fragile souls to the whole world, clearly, as this ridiculously entertaining collection of notes and confessions penned by kids to their parents, the tooth fairy, God, teachers, friends and nobody in particular shows.
This is my photo project, The Bonnie Days. I started this adventure when my daughter was five weeks old as a birthday gift to my husband. Some of the props I made myself, some I already had at home. I never added or subtracted things in Photoshop, everything was taken naturally. The process is quite simple: I set […]
Given a choice between laughing and wincing at these embarrassing childhood photos, we’d obviously go for the former. But only because of two things: 1. we aren’t one of the kiddos pictured and 2. no one was cruel enough to take a picture in our time to scar us for life. Double score.
Kids can really crack us up with their knock knock jokes. But not all kids tell squeaky-clean jokes. Vice’s new Kids Telling Dirty Jokes series features ‘tiny comedians’ they found on Craigslist that tell the most unbelievably dirty and offensive jokes you’ve probably heard. Here’s a few: ‘How do you circumcise a redneck? Kick his […]
Elbows, knees, fists—almost anything is a go in the sport of Muay Thai where kids as young as six are in the ring. Documented by photographer Sandra Hoyn, this photo series titled Fighting Kids shows the full-contact sport in action like never before. Hoyn was able to spend four weeks accompanying the children at home, […]
As this Tumblr blog’s description goes: ‘You know when a movie has a flashback and you see the character as a kid? Sometimes that’s awesome.’ Yep, this blog has 30 pages of evidence. Our favourite’s the one of Jean-Claude Van Damme in Bloodsport. Will someone now follow up with a project to track these kids now when they get older to see if they actually grow up to look like the future selves they got casted as? Keanu Reeves clearly didn’t.
Doesn’t everyone young and old need a menacing rabbit on their clothing? The Balletcats certainly feels that way, introducing a line of incredible youth t-shirts. From an historic armadillo and alligator treaty, to a wise lesson about theft, these shirts are an absolute for any pint-sized t-shirt fan. Or for anyone willing to squeeze themselves into a kids size. Check out these new goodies in the Lost At E Minor online store.
Danish kids fashion brand, New Generals, found themselves forced to invent a new word — ethicool — to illustrate their approach to kids fashion. In the world of New Generals, organic and ‘ethicool’ need not be beige and boring and cool fashion need not be rigid and cold.
