Climbatron scoffs at the forces of gravity, using suction cups built into its feet to climb up, down, around, even upside down smooth surfaces like windows, mirrors, and metal file cabinets! Simply turn on the switch and place this little robot on any suitable surface and watch it start climbing.

Nosefrida is a doctor recommended nasal aspirator that removes mucous from your child’s nose. It was invented in Sweden by Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, and has been used by Swedish moms and dads for years.
Nosefrida is a plastic tube with a filter that the parent uses with their own mouths to get the mucous out of their children’s noses. With the filter in place, the parent does not come in contact with the mucous from the child. There is no risk of bacterial contamination, in other words, you will not get the cold your child has.

The Shower Tap Radio has AM and FM bands and sticks to the wall, shower cubicle or anywhere you like by it’s ultra powerful sucker. To tune in to your favourite station all you need to do is turn the tap, (that’s why it’s called the Shower Tap Radio)!, “then to increase the volume, just turn the tap again???”

I don’t know what the last sentence meant… and it looks cheap (but at £9.95, its not) but its still unique… by being so literal…
