Michel Gondry is known for his playful use of in-camera effects in films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and videos like Let Forever Be. His short film about a lost tricycle features the same sensibility, while doubling as a promo for the iPhone 7 Plus’ moviemaking capabilities.
A while back we spotted some custom Cozy Coupes that Ian Pfaff modded into Mad Max-style rides for his little ones. Now, he’s released an amazing parody trailer starring the cars and his kids, Junior and Benji, with the help of filmmakers Aaron Ulrich and Markus Rutledge.
14 students from Japan’s Fuji Municipal Harada elementary school worked together to set a new record for the most skips by a team over a single jump rope in 60 seconds, getting their feet over the spinning rope 225 times without a miss – or about one jump every 1/4 second.
Kids get bored so easily. Here’s a fun activity to keep them occupied. While we prefer the demonic red piping on Wicked Clothes‘ ringer shirts, they’re also available in a wide variety of colors over at illustrator Steven Rhodes’ shop for 3 bucks less. The notebook is great too.

Toon Welling and David Menting designed this plaything which encourages face-to-face interaction, with one person controlling an analog synthesizer, and the other controlling a sequencer on the other side. Its simple enough for kids, but awesome enough for all ages.
This dad in Hong Kong gave his kid a thrill ride his rudimentary virtual reality mountain bike simulator. All it took was a big screen TV, a toddler’s push bike, and some upper body strength. Seriously, parents, if you’re looking for a way to squeeze a workout in, this could be it.
