editor’s note

Vacation time is a wonderful, family experience. It is also incredibly stressful. Especially in the planning of it. Making sure everyone has what they need from the right clothes, gears, sun factor and then making sure it all fits within the baggage allowance. For a parent, it’s definitely not what you would call a fun time. There are numerous places to look for ideas on what to do in this day and age of digital information. Even if you are not heading abroad and are perhaps staying local, there are apps that can suggest and show you events happening where you are that are suitable for the family. A great way to prevent that dreaded boredom when your kids may drive you mad! The holidays is also a great opportunity to get…

the geeky monthly

ATARIBOX Believe it or not but Atari are back with a brand new console. For many of us, Atari was one of the first home video gaming experiences that we had. They haven’t released any specs but at the moment we have these pictures to feast on. We can expect classics to return as well as ‘new content’ but it what guise that may come is anyone’s guess at this point. Retrogaming is still going strong and this could turn out to be a great console for the family. BYTE SIZED NEWS New Doctor Who We finally know who will play the 13th Doctor!

garden toys for long hot summer days

Giant Jenga Many garden games are monstrous versions of traditional games and what could be more fun that having an unsteady tower of wooden bricks teetering above you as you try to ease another out from the very bottom of the pile? The thrill of Giant Jenga never ceases as you try to anticipate the move that will make the tower unstable and crumble to the ground.

With school summer holidays looming, thinking of what to fill six weeks of hot sultry time with can be a bit of an issue. Sure, there are day trips out and the normal fare of visits to the swimming pool, trips to the zoo, family barbeques, and a host of other perfectly pleasant but fairly forgettable days out. Or you could book up for a summer of fun that they will never forget and may possibly give them lifelong skills and interests. Move over school clubs, Summer Tech Camps is where it’s at! Tech camps have been a part of American school holidays for some many decades, with the ID summer camps firmly established in many University buildings and the computing-oriented Kidcodecs residential courses. However, these are now migrating across the…

must have swimming kits

With this summer seemingly especially hot compared to previous washouts, and the ‘Met office promising a blistering end to summer, what can be better than relaxing in the pool? Whether it’s some serious swimming, water fights and swimming pool games, or just lazing in the water, the swimming pool is a great way of spending a long, hot afternoon. And if you are heading to the pool, the seaside, or are lucky enough to have your own pool, having the best in equipment and toys makes a good day a whole lot better. If you are down at the sea then body boards are the toy to have. Taking surfing and placing it in the slightly safer confines close to the beach, body boarding is a great way to start to…
