Thomas Edison famously found "2,000 ways not to make a lightbulb" before bringing us the common lightbulb we're all used to.

This glossy hardback shows us almost-innovations in transportation, ideas that were supposed to simplify our lives, weird and wacky toys, and strange ways to turn your babies and pets into multi-functional utilitarian tools. Imagine if we had inflatable rugs for sleepovers so you didn't have to sleep on the floor! OR if the many lollipop inventions over the years had come to fruition, like a cellphone lollipop or a necklace that stores your lollipop for later? You'll even learn how the patent office works and what will catch their eye as a future inventor! Marvel at the mysteries of man's brain while you giggle at these goofy near-inventions.

About Ten Year Olds

Highly active, clever little people with lots of opinions. They will undoubtedly be sitting by computers, but they also need toys and games to play with and real world objects. They have got stacks of energy so anything involving hurling objects around outside is good. Kites are great at this age as they can start to control them properly. This is the age when they get seriously speedy so you might need to dust off your running shoes if you want to keep up.
