Now that it’s winter and the country is getting its share of snow, we think it’s about time to go break some bones. L.L. Bean’s Flexible Flyer Sled totally beats the trays we filched (and returned!) from our college cafeteria. Made to glide over snow, we’re excited to drive to the mountains and have a snow day. What, adults can’t enjoy a snow day once in a while? Get your sled on. Available at llbean.com for $88 on sale

The H2GO hybrid is a environmentally friendly R/C car that uses hydrogen to power the battery that turns the motor and moves the toy car. That’s right, this R/C is a tiny electric car fueled by hydrogen. And where do you get this hydrogen fuel? From a pint-size solar-powered hydrogen generation and refueling station, of course.

Toy owners will use a solar panel and water to create the hydrogen fuel supply. The solar panel is also used to recharge the R/C’s remote control and super capacitors. Hydrogen will be used to charge the vehicle’s battery and power the motor, and the H2Go’s super capacitors are used for a little speed boost.

Created by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, H2Go is the perfect gift for the budding automotive enthusiast with a passion for green tech. The $150 kit comes with a hybrid hydrogen car, solar panel, hydrogen station, and remote control and is available at horizonfuelcell.com

We think skater boys and girls alike will be more motivated to unlace if you give ’em this recycled skateboard bench to sit on. You might be tempted to stick this in the garage or the kid’s room, but we think it’d even look pretty fabu in a sleek, modern entryway.

The new and improved deckbench is expertly crafted from 100% reclaimed and recycled broken skateboards. This is can also be customized and available at www.etsy.com at $699

We’ve already invested in an expensive pair of cat eye sunglasses this season. But, we’re really awesome at losing things, so we’ll bust those out on special occasions and wear these ASOS Oversized Red Cat Eye Sunglasses ($22) the rest of the time. They’re super stylish and fun, but affordable enough that if we lose them/break them/sit on them 30048321 times, we won’t feel too bad about it .

Why should the little ones have all the fun?!
