    Double Rainbow, In Your Room

    Uncle Milton knows what's up. This $23 device will throw a beautiful rainbow across your room, complete with multiple colors. Sadly, as one Amazon reviewer notes, "the product projects a rainbow onto the walls, not through the air as displayed in the illustration, but I do have to say that my seven year old and my three year old are completely enchanted."

    Video: Those Flying Fish Are Called Air Swimmers

    Would you buy a toy fish that flew in the air wagging its tail as if it were swimming? If you answered yes, then check this out: it's called Air Swimmers.
