TOPlays Smart and Safe Earphones

practical safe earphones

Many of us enjoy hearing music while cycling or walking around in traffic. This is potentially risky because the earphones makes it hard to hear what’s going on around you. TOPlays new earphones solves this problem.

TOPlays earphones make it possible to hear everything that’s going on around you, while listening to music. This is due to the fact that the earphones are fastened to the earlobe instead of being put directly into the ear. This feature also makes the ear pressure minimal, and protects the children’s hearing.

TOPlays earphones come in simple white-, black- and silver designs, as well as the more child friendly skull-, football- and panda designs. You can buy them at ME-WE SHOP at $39.98 and $44.88 USD.

Besides changing the users voice the helmet has two other modes, one with sounds of Optimus Primes battle phrases and one with the sounds of Optimus Prime transforming.

The helmet fits adults (yay! ;)) and kids over five years of age. It can be bought through the Hasbro Toy Shop.

H-Racer Hydrogen Driven Toycar


The H-Racer toycar is a smart little car that runs on hydrogen. It is a fascinating toy which lets children experience new technology.

With the H-Racer comes a miniature refueling station that matches the cars design. When the car is in need of fuel, you just drive up to the refueling station and tank hydrogen like one would tank gas or diesel on a real car. By the use of a solar power the refueling station can produce all the hydrogen you’ll need for the H-Racer. The see through tank allows you to observe the hydrogen making process. It’s a brilliant idea and very engaging for the kids.

iPulse Bear iPod Speakers

iPulse_bear_speakersThese speakers are something that will brighten up the face of any small child or teenage girl. The iPulse Bear speaker is not only a cute teddy bear containing a speaker system but also offers a spectacular light show to accompany the music. The “toes” on the bears paws are LED lights that lights up and “dances” to the beat of the music, and the eyes glow. The iPod dock is placed inside a pouch on the bears belly where he keeps it safe and protected.

To turn on the iPulse Bear you just have to give his paw a squeeze. The cute bear is made out of hi-tech mesh fabric, and the overall impression of it is therefore not to cuddly, and it matches the design of the iPod very well. The bear comes in white and brown, but the brown version has fur, so the overall look is a quite different.
