Got a cool â‚¬1,200, and love those spinning cups you find at the playground? The Spinning Chair was apparently inspired by the Hadron Collider, and claims to be the opposite of a rocking chair. That is, rather than calming you, it energises – which is a shame, because I’d chalked it up as something that might be useful in one’s sleep-training armoury. Oops: over-excited kids become even more hyper? Maybe not then.Â Still, if you have a large budget, or perhaps are buying for a nursery/playgroup, I bet the kids would love this. Just blame those energy levels on the fruit snacks.
