  • Safari Chef Portable Grill


    The Safari Chef is my new favorite camping gizmo. It’s a lightweight stove, grill, non-stick griddle, wok, and boiling pan in one. Everything stacks up nice and neat, and zips into a small carrying bag. My sister in law gave us one for Christmas, and now a few of our friends have bought their own after using ours. For portability and versatility, I prefer it to our two-burner Coleman stove. Not built for backpacking, but great for everything else.

  • Megazooka


    A superior cube toy, or hours of fun for the preteens, megazookas shoot a strong blast of air up to 20 feet. No batteries or electricity required. It’s sort of like a squirt gun, or rather a supersoaker, but for winter.

  • Keypod


    You’re funding the locksmith’s summer vacations, and you’ve spent way too much time sulking on the porch. Use a key safe to attach a key to your car, or a safe place outdoors. Now you just have to remember the combination.

  • Travel Scrabble


    We went camping recently, and friends brought along this handy travel-Scrabble game, so we could play by the campfire. The tiles snap into their racks, and the ridges on the board are deeper, so you can even play while you’re in transit. Plus, it’s itty bitty, so you can slip it right into your backpack and still have room for the Scrabble Dictionary. Nerd.

  • Vocal Smoke Alarm


    This smoke alarm lets you record a message in your own voice, using your kids’ names. You can call to them, or provide instructions in your own voice. When the detector senses smoke, it sounds an alarm, plays your message loudly, and switches on a bright light. Extra-annoying when you burn the toast, but a potential life-saver when it wakes your deepest sleeper in a fire.

  • Cordster


    A doodad that attaches to the back of your iPod and stores your headphones in a neat coil. You can leave it on or remove it at whim, because it’s attached with extra-strength Velcro. The Velcro itself attaches with a rubber adhesive, which the manufacturer claims will come off without leaving any kind of mark.

  • Digital Keychain Breath Alcohol Detector


    You can touch your nose; you can pretty much walk a straight line; you can say the alphabet backward; you can… crash your car into a phone pole. Maybe you’ve only had a couple drinks, but once you’ve had anything at all, you’re in no position to judge your sobriety. So, if you must drive, at least keep one of these on hand. The Digital Keychain Breath Alcohol Detector tests your breath alcohol content with the push of a button. So it’s totally easy to use when you’re wasted.
