When Good Gadgets Go Bad

This month we have replaced our:

  • Toaster
  • Kettle
  • Phone & Answering Machine
  • DVD player
  • Printer (ok, the old one isn’t strictly dead, just inhaling ink)
  • Alarm Clock

And added to our collection:

  • A mini food processor
  • A Wii battery remote charging pad thingie

All I can say is that I’m really glad we have two recycling bins to deal with all that packaging and it’s another good thing that we went really light on the Christmas presents this year *sigh*.

Hopefully they won’t all collectively expire in 12 months time.

Travelling Mamas have a pair of Walkie Talkies up for grabs. We’ve found walkie talkies to be absolutely brilliant when travelling BUT remember you need to get country specific ones. You cannot take walkie talkies internationally, as each continent has separate band widths for public use. You can take them from the UK to Europe but not to the States or Australia for example.

Some great suggestions here. The Tom Bihn bags look awesome – I’ve read other good reviews of his range. Although what I like best about his bags are the washing instructions. Sadly very $$$ once you convert the whole lot to Aussie dollars.

The Tekkon rechargable batteries are a serious consideration for purchase however!
