Is today’s idea brilliant or a bomb?The Idea: Talkatoo, priced at $16.99, is a recordable charm. Press a button to record a message up to 30 seconds and press another (as often as you want) to hear the message. Kids can wear the charm, which comes in a variety of designs, as a necklace or bracelet, or clip it onto their backpacks or lunch boxes.

Why we like it: A lot of trinkets can be personalised these days, including charms, but personalizing kids items by recording voice messages is relatively uncommon. Kids can literally hear their parents’ voices whenever they need words of advice or encouragement. It’s another way to make sure your kid doesn’t feel like he or she is ever alone.
