My kids are desperate for a pet but quite frankly I’m holding out as long as I can. I’m fairly sure that anything we get will end up being looked after by me and right now I have enough meals to prepare and poop to clean up. When it does come time to get something for the kids to look after I’m all for starting out small – the less demanding, the better. So do you think they’d go for a tiny plant instead of a golden retriever?
Although it is actually designed as a mobile phone trinket, the Plantstrap is precisely the kind of doodad that fascinates kids. The tiny jar contains a living plant that never needs food or water, instead surviving entirely in the special blue or pink concoction in the jar.
Fascinating and cute, the Plantstrap would also make a great zipper pull or addition to the school bag key ring collection.
Plantstraps are US$19.99 and are available from Gizmine who ship to Australia.
