Behold stunning mood lamp from the Science Museum, that’s educational too! You’ll be able to see all the way from the Plough to Pegasus.

VIEW FROM ABOVE
Whether you choose to use it to take Gray Malin style aerial photography, film your next ski trip from above or spy on the neighbours, this drone camera is the ultimate flying gadget. It takes stunning HD videos and 14MP photos (that’s very high definition), plus it even live streams to your smartphone or tablet at up to 300m range (or up to 2km with the Sky Controller add-on).
Fun picture? Yes. Sparkly thread? Yes. Sequins? Of course. This space inspired piece has the same cosy feel as an old-favourite jumper, with a ribbed hem and cuffs, but it’s waaaay more fun to wear.
GPS TRACKER WATCH
It may look like just another kids’ watch, but don’t be fooled by the bright colours and simple watch face. They are actually clever tracking devices that help parents keep tabs on kids’ whereabouts. If you want to know where the kids are, you can check their location on the TCLMOVE app; and if they need help, they can send an alert to your smartphone via the SOS
button on the watch. So they have freedom to do more while you have the reassurance that you’re both connected. Genius.
Inspired by the stars, moon and night sky in beautiful dark blues and glittery golds, the Stardust celestial design A6 notebook is perfect for carrying with you on the go to write down any thoughts, musings, or lists that you need to make throughout the day.

Does your little one wake up as soon as the buggy stops moving? With the motto ‘one giant sleep for babykind’, the award winning Rockit portable baby rocker promises to rock babies to sleep so you don’t have to. Created to help parents on the go, this handy must-have accessory keeps babies moving and snoozing. Simply attach to any pushchair or pram (or rocking crib), push the button and adjust the speed to rock your baby, just like you would. In fact scientific tests show the vibration level closely mimics the normal hand rocking of a pushchair and the subtle yet soothing movement is gentler than a pushchair moving over paving stones.
