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 Eleven Year Olds

Now starting to be extremely knowledgeable about all sorts of things and with a real interest in how things work. Good presents are clever science or construction kits that require intelligent thinking. At this age they can do pretty cool magic tricks so a joke set or a magic set can be a fun choice. Definitely starting to have firm views on style as well, so you can send them something stylish.
