We have been playing a fun game recently on our Facebook fan page, and you should play along!

Each day I post a picture of a product and everyone chimes in with their thoughts. Some have even posted do-it-yourself articles to make your own - and not spend a cent!

So here are our latest games - comment to let us know what you think - good idea or waste of money!?

Bacon Shaped Adhesive BandagesBacon Shaped Adhesive Bandages
-- Ouch! That smarts! Treat your minor cuts, scrapes and scratches with the incredible healing power of meat. And if a fancy bandage isn't enough to dry up your tears, how about a FREE PRIZE!

Each comes in a 3-3/4" tall metal pocket tin and contains a small trinket to help make even the ouchiest owies feel all better in no time. The 3" x 1" Bacon Strips are cut to look like small slabs of bacon. Fifteen per tin.

NOTE: it also comes in pickle, underpants, toast, mustache, and more!
Good idea - or - waste of money?

-- Worry no more about taking your toddler into the bathroom at the mall or a fast food restaurant! Potty Mitts are a new approach to protecting your child from germs in public bathrooms because kids touch everything!

Place disposable Potty Mitts on your child and their hands are protected no matter what they touch (toilet seat, floors, walls, flushing handles). Even liquids won't penetrate through!

Each mitt is decorated with playful bears so kids love to wear them! Potty Mitts come in a convenient collapsible pouch for easy storage in purse or pocket. Potty Mitts are a "must-have" for families on-the-go!

Giggle Bug Toddler TrackerGiggle Bug Toddler Tracker
-- The Giggle Bug is simple to use and works on the same locating principle as a cordless phone handset finder.

Clip the Giggle Bug to your child's clothing, if your child wanders away or hides; press the button on the fob. The bug will emit a loud, distinctive, but kid-friendly beep until your child is found and you push the button on the unit to reset.

The Giggle Bug is designed to be used with children 18 months to 6 years old. The range is 75-100 feet indoors and 100+ feet outdoors. Feel secure at the mall, playground, beach, airport ... virtually anywhere!
