The Other Wind Power
My wife has worked very hard to get our kids into a night time routine so that they’ll go to bed without too much fuss. Â Somewhere along the way, they decided that they needed to have flashlights. Â We couldn’t stand to walk into the room and find the kids asleep with the batteries dead on the flashlight. Â So for Christmas we found some Wind-Up flashlights and they have been pretty awesome. Â Well, the other day I saw a great concept from designer Qian Jiang, Wind-Up Batteries! Â Get more info atÂ Yanko Design.
I got a chuckle out of this, cause we have the same trouble with our five year old. He used to have a battery flashlight, but kept leaving it on all night. So we got an el-cheapo windup light. Now we keep hearing him in there winding away about an hour after we put him to bed, so he can keep looking at his books and lego magazines.
yeah, I know what you’re talking about. I’m just glad that they’re in bed.
