Great advancements in bread mold research from the series "KC Science Fair"

I will never look at bread the same way again.

the Toasty Tush

Catchy name. Who wouldn't be a fan of a toasty tush? Nobody,and I mean nobody likes a cold tush.

the Edible Pencil

Long boring meeting? No lunch? No problem.

the Pocket-tie

As a guy who wears tie,I'm ready to order this baby. Especially since the sign says "Buy it NOOOOOW!". I'm sold!

Goodbye spills,hello soda

You have to love a simple and elegant design.

the Spatula Flashlight

Evidently,there's much more night grilling going on than I was aware of. It's nice to see that the kids are keeping an eye out for these opportunities. And the Chiefs logo always insures a few more sales.

Science experiment

It wasn't all inventions. There was some hard-hitting science being thrown down as well. I forgot where I was going with this...maybe I need some gum.


Hey,this was an invention convention,not a spelling party.

The Party Shoe

Oh if I think of all the times I wanted to go to a party but didn't because I didn't have the right shoes. I would sit at home and think to myself "if only I had a Party Shoe".

The poster says it "lights up and plays music. It is literally a party in a shoe". Boy,I can smell the party from here.

The Blind Fold

Might be politically incorrect but you got to admit,it's catchier than "Visually Impaired Fold"........(take special note of the braille labels)

The Hot Umbrella

Let's see,a hair-dryer affixed to a plastic umbrella...I don't see how this could possibly go wrong.

The Cake Lifter

A spring-loaded cake pan. Someone call Consumer Reports,let's get testing on this thing.

The Peeper Beeper

Really,I can't think of anything to write that is funnier than this name...let's say it together...Peeper Beeper.

The Brop

It's a broom,no it's a mop...wait,it's a Brop. It's it's brilliant...wait,it's smilliant!

The extended snooze button

Finally someone has invented a snooze button that will get you up and going instead of wasting your morning in bed.

From the KC Science Fair- Inventions Category

My favorite part of the Science Fair is always the inventions. This one I really dug,it was the "Eliminator". In case you're taking a timed test and suddenly you realize you made a mistake and have alot of erasing to do. This device will help you out,brilliant invention,it only looks like 2 pencils taped together.
