    World's Smallest Walkie Talkies

    Christmas can be a hectic period, engulfed in a murky haze of people rushing around and, most importantly, food preparation. It’s a difficult obstacle to overcome and usually one that requires a lot of yelling from one end of the house to the other.

    How best to approach a situation such as this? The World’s Smallest Walkie Talkies!

    As absurd as it sounds, think of the practicality. The kids can run around aimlessly playing with their new toy, and the adults can use them for essential communication. Win-win. A job well done.

    I Used To Know That: Stuff You Forgot From School (Book)

    ‘Hey, I forgot that!’

    How many times has this exclamation been uttered across our lifetime? For us adults, it can be hard to keep those pesky educational facts in check. Seriously, teachers are the same people who said we wouldn’t have calculators on us at all times—how ridiculous!

    But still, sometimes important information—or at least fascinating information—can fall through the cracks of our over-encumbered brains. Why not recover a few facts? Fill in the blanks.

    It’s a temporary fix, but if it doesn’t make for some stimulating Christmas conversation, we don’t know what will.

    So, introduce your loved ones to some musical talent. They’ll be filled with joy upon opening their morning presents. How they’ll be after an hour or so of listening to these — let’s say ‘quality’ — tunes, yeah, we’ll let you find that one out.
