It’s 2010, and frankly, we’re disappointed. Where are the flying cars? The teleport pads?

Whether in line at the supermarket with the candy rack or trying to leave the toy store, a tantrum is in the works. One quick spray from the can and your child will be instantly induced to get off the floor, wipe the tears from their eyes and remind you that he or she loves you.

Anit-Tantrum spray


A quick blast from the sleep ray and within 10 minute your child will not only be tired, but will brush their teeth, go to the bathroom and then instinctively seek out their bed. No need to worry about an accidental zapping, as the 10 minute window allows ample time for the child to reach a cozy sleeping area. Moms should note that because of the strong similarities between a man’s brain and a child’s, that the sleep ray is surprisingly effective on dads. Dads, no such luck on moms, their brains are far more advanced.

Sleep ray


A small clip-on device, no bigger than a pedometer. The device monitors the air quality within a 5 yard radius and picks up on the slight increase in the air’s acidity just before your child is about to hurl. Expect 5-10 minutes of advance notice so be prepared to grab a bucket quickly or grab your child and run for the nearest bathroom an exterior space when you hear the alarm go off.
