Editor's Notes

December 11, 2018:

A big category with a lot of potential entries, some of which fell out of contention due to safety concerns. Items like the Manhattan Snuggle Pod and the magnetic drawing board shaped like a bear are almost too cute to handle, while the practicality of items like the Aquadoodle is undeniable.

After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
