It’s back-to-school time!
Remember the days of getting fresh notebooks, sharpening pencils, and chalk boards? All things that are endangered species in schools these days. Now there are iPads, whiteboards, and all kinds of cool new gear and gadget to make school days a bit easier for students, teachers, and parents!
Here is a rundown of some great back-to-school products, all invented by innovative entrepreneurs.
Make morning routines a breeze – and delicious- with the Agg Coddler.
The Äggcøddler is a new twist on a boring boiled egg. The modern, egg-shaped design by a Scandinavian entrepreneur makes a nutritious breakfast simple and stylish. Assembling different egg creations is a breeze with easy instructions and endless possibilities for fillings. These are great for students and teachers because you can even make these in advance and pack them in your lunch.
The recipe is simple: Butter the inside of your Äggcøddler, fill it with an egg and all of your favorite breakfast ingredients – think cheese, vegetables, herbs, and meats – secure the lid, place in boiling water for about 10 minutes, and enjoy!
Flint Lint Roller
Meet Flint, the handy lint roller that fits into a backpack. Best of all? It won’t stick to everything in your bag! It’s retractable, reusable, and refillable – not to mention comes in several stylish colors.
Did you know that more than 80 billion sticky notes are sold worldwide each year? It may feel like there are that many all over your desk, but Note Tower can help. It’s a desktop organizer that can support notes and documents, and it comes in different sizes and colors to fit your needs and style.
Even better, a portion of sales goes to Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit organization that builds schools in developing regions and supports childhood education programs.
Chi Phresh Mat
Got the first-day jitters? School stressing you out? Find your chi with Chi Universe’s Phresh Mat. The Phresh Mat was created by a yogi turned entrepreneur to make yoga into a fun game for kids. The mats come in both kids and adult sizes, so parents can participate in this relaxing after-school activity too.
They’re also great for more than just relieving school jitters. You can find the Phresh Mat across the country at schools, fitness facilities, and hotels. Need some guidance? There is even a fun app that you can download on iTunes to play along.
For some kids, heading back to school can be a real pain, especially when it comes to vaccinations or the occasional accident. In comes Buzzy, a drug-free pain reliever invented by a pediatric emergency physician and a pain researcher.
This cute, little device relieves pain by working between the brain and the pain. How does it work? It uses patented Cool-Pulse technology that combines the cooling ice packs and the vibrations of the Buzzy to overwhelm the body’s pain nerves. Placing this over injection spots, burns, and muscle soreness can help eliminate or inhibit pain. No more tears at the doctor’s office!
