ThinkGizmos, a UK-based manufacturer of innovatively designed toys, has recently launched its remote-control robot on Amazon UK.

HORSHAM, UNITED KINGDOM, November 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ThinkGizmos is pleased to announce that its popular toy remote control robot is now available on Amazon UK. Appropriate for boys and girls above the age of five, this innovative toy comes with numerous attractive features. The brand reports that prior to its launch in the UK, this toy has been extremely successful in the U.S. and selected European markets.

According to the company, the RoboShooter allows children to record any message of their choice and speaks the same message at the press of a button. It also features soft foam disks that shoot out of the robot's chest on command. The robot can be controlled easily with its 2.4 GHz remote control that is equipped with dedicated buttons for different functions such as walking, sliding, dancing, firing its blaster, shooting disks and talking. The manufacturer mentions that this toy is the perfect gift for ages 5 to 8.

"Small foam disks are included with the toy robot, which load by lifting its head and inserting them in the provided chamber. Then, at a press of the disk button, the robot will fire the disks out of its chest," said a spokesperson from ThinkGizmos. "With the provided 2.4 GHz remote, children will have no trouble controlling the robot; the remote includes buttons for each of the functions with images on the buttons to show what each of them does. Also, the robot speaks in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish."

To ensure safety, the Disc Firing RC Robot Toy was manufactured using strong, safe and non-toxic ABS Plastic, the company says. In addition to the robot, each pack contains the remote control, six AA batteries and a detailed instruction manual for controlling the robot.

Recommending the product, an impressed buyer mentions, "This is a fab robot. I bought it for my 5-year-old son's birthday. It is easy to use and does everything you would expect, gun sounds in addition to the disc firing, dances, slides, walks and talks. I would recommend for the under 8's instead of the expensive robots that are too complicated for them to use on their own. My 8-year-old son loves it too."

Those interested in learning more about ThinkGizmos' RoboShooter should visit the company's official website or Amazon storefront.

Christmas Isn’t Always Ho Ho Ho | How To Support Someone Struggling This Christmas

Thoughtful Cards

Anikka Burton – Founder of Not Another Bunch Of Flowers

‘Living with cancer is hard,’ says Anikka. ‘It’s relentless, exhausting and emotional and people forget that treatment drags on and on and takes its toll'”

— Anikka Burton

HAYWARDS HEATH, UNITED KINGDOM, November 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Christmas is an incredibly difficult time for some. Images of the ‘perfect Christmas’ are everywhere – adverts, magazines and all over social media – and can be a painful reminder of the restrictions either physically or emotionally that this time of year brings for some.

This is something Anikka, founder of Not Another Bunch Of Flowers knows only too well, having been treated for cancer over the Christmas period.

‘Living with cancer is hard,’ says Anikka. ‘It’s relentless, exhausting and emotional and people forget that treatment drags on and on and takes its toll. And when you are unwell during the Christmas festivities these feelings can be amplified. The days are shorter and the nights longer, colder and darker. Suddenly everyone is out and about having fun, going shopping and having parties. Social media is flooded with images of everything you are missing out on and you can end up feeling even more isolated. There is also that unspeakable question, could this be my last Christmas?’

But knowing that you are loved and supported can really help.

Anikka’s cancer diagnosis inspired her to set up Not Another Bunch Of Flowers – a gift site that specialises in thoughtful gifts and cards for people going through difficult times.

Anikka has provided some tips to help you buy a suitable and meaningful gift for someone struggling this Christmas, whether it is simply a difficult time of year having lost someone dear to them, if they are suffering from a serious illness, are going through a nasty divorce or are simply under the weather

Flowers
Flowers are lovely, but tend to be the first thing that people think of when someone is sick, so the result can often be an overwhelming number. Why not send a thoughtful gift that will stand out from all of the flowers and last longer?

Practical gifts are greatly appreciated…
A care package full of useful items is always a hit!

…as are little treats
Treats to lift the spirits will also go down well. We may spend more time cozied up at home as we recover from surgery, our latest treatment session or are feeling sad or depressed, so comforting, cosy or pampering gifts are much appreciated. Think pretty lounge-wear, cosy hot water bottles, a natural bath oil, magazines, blankets, comfy bed socks and candles.

Avoid anything too clinical
Some gifts might appear to be really useful such as a thermometer, or a giant size tub of E45, but gifts that are too clinical only act to reaffirm that we are unwell. Something to take our minds off this and make us feel more ‘normal’ is much more appreciated.

Be aware of ingredients
Some cancer patients, for example, are advised to or opt to avoid certain ingredients. They may choose to cut sugar and/or dairy out of their diet, meaning edible treats such as cakes, chocolates and candy may go to waste. Similarly with pampering treats, many cancer patients prefer more natural toiletries that don’t contain nasties such as parabens and SLS. They may also find strong fragrances nauseating and there are some essential oils that are best avoided during treatment. So if you are selecting some body and bath treats, natural and organic is probably best.

It is probably safer to avoid comedy gifts
OK, if you’re very close to your friend, and you know for sure that they will find the gift funny, then go for it – anything to cheer us up is very welcome. However, if you’re not sure, I would avoid it. You don’t want to belittle their feelings with a gift that ends up upsetting them rather than making them laugh.

Be very careful with self-help books
There are thousands of self-help books out there and many offer conflicting advice and opinions, leading to feelings of confusion and fear. Others unfortunately do not have a happy ending. So, if you want to send your friend some helpful books, ensure the message is encouraging and positive and that they don’t scaremonger. Most people are likely to have researched their own information including alternative and holistic therapies so respect their decisions and try not to interfere or comment on them.

Speak from the heart
When choosing the words to accompany your gift, speak from heart. Try to avoid meaningless clichés and platitudes such as ‘you’ll be fine’ as it belittles our very real fears. We have some specific Christmas cards that recognise this year might be a struggle for some. Christmas may not be the most wonderful time of the year for your loved one, so make sure you acknowledge that.

Practical and emotional support is maybe the greatest gift of all
Living with a serious illness or depression is hard, it is relentless, exhausting and emotional. Giving a gift does not have to cost the earth, it could be a matter of giving your time. Anything from helping with the school run, walking the dog, offering a lift to hospital to simply offering a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on may be the greatest gift you could give someone this Christmas.

Notes to Editor
Not Another Bunch Of Flowers was set up in 2013 following my cancer diagnosis. Friends and family wanted to send me a little something along with messages of support, but just didn't know what to send – apart from flowers. Not many people know that flowers are banned in most hospitals. This inspired me to set up a site selling gift alternatives to flowers, including cancer care packages, hospital hampers and get well gifts.
We are proud to have raised and donated over £25,000 to the following charities in recognition of the support we received during our diagnoses

Foster Families Enjoy Christmas Cheer with the Clearwater Community Volunteers at Annual Photo Shoot

On November 23rd, a family from the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association (PCFAPA) poses for their annual Christmas photos at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center. The event was co-sponsored by PCFAPA and CCV at no cost to the memb

CLEARWATER, FL, UNITED STATES, November 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Foster and adoptive families of the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association (PCFAPA) converged at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center (CCV) for their annual Christmas photo shoot. The CCV center provided its facilities at no cost for the day-long photo shoot with nearly 70 foster parents and children participating in creating classic family photos for their remote relatives.

Complete with backdrop, lighting and holiday décor families posed with borrowed ornaments from the Clearwater Community Volunteers’ “Wreath Central” of Winter Wonderland, a winter village and food/toy drive for low-income families in the Greater Tampa Bay Area.

The photo shoot was put on by PCFAPA at no cost to the member families.

“PCFAPA supports its member families in more ways than one can count.” said Michael Soltero, manager of the CCV Center. “In its mission to pave the road to success for foster and adoptive families PCFAPA helps to take care of things like Christmas photos in the best interest of both parents and children. This aligns with what Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard wrote ‘A child factually does not to well without love, most children have an abundance of it to return’.

The shoot started at 1030AM with set ups beginning before the CCV Center opened. One by one each family stepped foot into the winter “snow” carpet for professionally done photos.

Dora Starling, President of PCFAPA, said “This was an amazing opportunity for our families and we’re all grateful for it. Professionally done family photos can cost a fortune and with the Clearwater Community Volunteers donating their space the cost was cut down substantially. Each year our families change and these photos let us go back to see what faces we’ve had with us. As far as I'm concerned, whoever is living in our home is our family.”

To find out more information about PCFAPA please visit their website at PCFAPA.org.

For information about the Clearwater Community Volunteers center please call Michael Soltero at (727) 316-5309 or email ccvcenter@ccvfl.org.

The Clearwater Community Volunteers have over 25 years of community service under their belt with over 150,000 families and children helped since their founding in 1992. Sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, they stay true to their reputation of helping others with their new center located on the corner of Fort Harrison Avenue and Drew Street in downtown Clearwater.

학교에서 사용할 수 있는 스마트폰용 VR기기 NABI는 한국과 미국에 특허받은 제품으로 접이식으로 되어있어 부피가 작아 이동과 보관이 쉽고, 내구성이 좋아 장기간 사용할 수 있다는 장점이 있다.

서울, 대한민국, November 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — 최근 교육부에서 전국 초등학교로 보낸 공문에 의하면 헤드셋 형태 VR기기 (HMD)의 이용을 자제하고 스마트패드 또는 스마트폰을 활용하는 VR을 권장하고 있다. 대부분의 VR기기들이 헤드셋 형태로 되어있기 때문에, 어떤 기기를 사용해야할지 학교에서는 혼란을 겪고 있다.

헤드셋 형태가 아닌 스마트폰용 VR기기는 어떠한게 있을까?

흔히 많이 쓰이는 카드보드와 VR뷰어들이 이에 해당된다. 카드보드의 경우는 아이들이 조립하는 재미를 느낄 수 있는 장점이 있다. 하지만 부피가 커서 보관이 쉽지 않다는 단점이 있으며, 재질의 특성 상 내구성이 좋지 않아 일회용이 되기 쉽다.

이를 보완하는 제품으로 모컴의 VR기기 “NABI”가 각광을 받고 있다. 접이식으로 되어있어 부피가 작아 이동과 보관이 쉽고, 내구성이 좋아 장기간 사용할 수 있다는 장점이 있다. 또한 스크린을 직접 터치를 할 수 있는 구조로 되어있어 사용이 편리하며, 헤드셋 형태가 아니기 때문에 아이들이 VR영상을 잠시 시청하기 쉬운 구조로 되어있다.

이 제품은 국내와 미국 등 해외에서 특허받은 제품으로 현재 수출이 되고 있으며, 해외의 유해물질 테스트에서도 통과가 되었다.

ANYBIG VR-300은 30개의 뷰어가 알루미늄 가방에 들어가있는 제품이다. 30명의 학생이 한번에 VR을 체험할 수 있으며, 체험 후 보관이 쉬우며, 교실간의 이동도 용이하다.

최근 모컴테크에서는 세계 최초로 태블렛에 쓸 수 있는 VR기기의 개발을 완료하여 양산을 준비하고 있는 단계이며, 이로 인하여 학교에서 더욱 쉽게 VR 체험학습을 할 수 있을 것으로 예상된다.

About Offensive Crayons:
Aren't you tired of coloring with "blue" or "brown" or "burnt sienna?" Us, too.
So, we decided to create Offensive Crayons to liven things up. Gone are the safe colors like "goldenrod" or "red." Now we have "Travel Ban Brown" and "Privilege" (exclusively for our Caucasian backers).
All press inquiries contact:
info@offensivecrayons.com

About Alice Vaughn:
Vaughn is the (in)famous creator of Offensive Crayons, an adults-only box of crayons for the wildly artistic with a healthy sense of humor – with names like Boner Bill Blue, Miscarriage Maroon, and Privilege (White), the inappropriately- named crayons have been banned from Amazon for “insulting children and Caucasians”.
When she’s not gleefully exploiting the general public’s constant stream of PC outrage, Vaughn often finds herself accidentally going viral – for better or worse – like she did here, here, and here.

Gray's Auctioneers in Cleveland will conclude the year with a Fine Art, Furniture & Decorative Art auction December 11th

A pair of oil on board paintings by Harold Newton (1934-1994), a founder of the Florida Highwaymen group of artists, depicting a beach by moonlight (one shown), each has an estimate of $3,000-$5,000.

Lots 9 and 10 are beautifully rendered oil on canvas interior scenes with figures (one shown) that appear to have been painted by the same Old Master artist. Both have estimates of $5,000-$7,000.

Charming oil on canvas portrait of a young girl in a white dress by the American artist Henry Inman (1801-1846), unsigned, framed dimensions 32 ¼ inches by 28 ¼ inches (est. $2,000-$4,000).

Painting of a mourning Mary Magdalene by Peter Rothermel (American, 1817-1895), reminiscent of a pre-Raphaelite beauty, 30 inches by 25 inches (sight), artist signed lower right (est. $2,000-$5,000).

Dynamic 19th century seascape by Edward Moran (1829-1901), an English-born American artist of maritime paintings, a signed oil on canvas, 16 inches by 20 inches (sight) (est. $3,000-$5,000).

Offered will be treasures from fine estates across northeast Ohio, plus a gorgeous collection of Persian rugs, runners and carpets, starting at 11 am EST.

CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gray’s Auctioneers will finish the year in style with a Fine Art, Furniture and Decorative Art auction on Wednesday, December 11th, online and in the Cleveland gallery located at 10717 Detroit Avenue, starting promptly at 11 am Eastern time. Offered will be treasures from fine estates across northeast Ohio, as well as a gorgeous collection of Persian rugs, runners and carpets.

Fine art will be offered in abundance, starting with lots 1 and 2, a pair of oil on board paintings by Harold Newton, a founder of the legendary Florida Highwaymen group of artists. Both paintings depict a beach by moonlight, gently lapping waves and palm trees rustling in the warm evening breezes. The glow of the moon appears to be peeking out from under the frame, a masterful, elegant trick of the eye.

Both paintings carry estimates of $3,000-$5,000. The Florida Highwaymen were a group of 26 African American landscape artists in Florida. Collectively they created a body of work of over 200,000 paintings from the 1950s thru the 1980s, despite facing many racial and cultural barriers. Today their works are highly coveted by collectors. Gray’s sold a beach scene by Newton in their Aug. 28, 2019 auction, for $20,000 (hammer price).

As a founding member, Harold Newton (1934-1994) was one of the more pivotal members of the Highwaymen. Like the others, he painted mostly scenes of Florida’s coastlines and wetlands, which the men sold door-to-door and out of the trunks of their cars, along the coastal roads A1A and US1, often for very little money. Harold Newton died at age 59, just one year after suffering a debilitating stroke.

Lots 9 and 10 are beautifully rendered oil on canvas domestic scenes with figures that appear to have been painted by the same Old Master artist, in the style of the Dutch or Antwerp Old Masters from the 17th or 18th century. Both are unsigned and each one measures 28 ½ inches by 16 ¾ inches. They have been assigned reasonable pre-sale estimates of $5,000-$7,000 each.

Lot 11 is a charming portrait of a young girl in a white dress by the American artist Henry Inman (1801-1846). Inman was an accomplished portrait, genre and landscape painter, but he truly excelled in portrait painting. Among his many subjects were prominent political figures, Native Americans, British luminaries and others. The lovely portrait in the auction is expected to change hands for $2,000-$4,000.

Another striking painting is lot 8A, a depiction of a mourning Mary Magdalene by Peter Rothermel (American, 1817-1895). The signed work, with an estimate of $2,000-$5,000, is reminiscent of a pre-Raphaelite beauty. Rothermel is well known for his biblical subjects, although his most celebrated painting is the Battle of Gettysburg, a massive artwork that hangs in the state museum in Philadelphia.

Lot 5 is a dynamic 19th century seascape by Edward Moran (1829-1901), the English-born American artist of maritime paintings. The signed oil on canvas, 16 inches by 20 inches (sight) captures sailors gripping on to a boat while a squall whips up the ocean and fills the sails. The painting should bring $3,000-$5,000. Moran is known for his series of 13 historical paintings of United States marine history.

The auction features a fascinating collection of Japanese paintings and prints, starting with lot 77, an amusing and playful gouache on silk by Kamisaka Sekka (1866-1942), a wonderful scene of several figures blown about by a gust of wind that has whisked an umbrella out of an outstretched hand. The 50 ½ inch by 19 ½ inch (sight) work, titled Figures in a Gust of Wind, is estimated to hit $2,000-$4,000.

The Asian portion of the auction also includes Satsuma, Kutani, Imari and other fine porcelains; bronzes, brass, silvered and enameled gods and buddhas; and many other decorative works of art and furniture.

The furniture category will be led by a 19th century Regency satinwood sofa table, painted in the style of Angelica Kauffmann (Swiss, 1741-1807). The 57 ½ inch wide table should sell for $5,000-$7,000.

PERTH AMBOY, NJ, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, November 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The City of Perth Amboy and the Business Improvement District are celebrating the start of the holiday season on Saturday, Nov. 30, with three family-fun events. The celebrations are coupled with many opportunities for shopping and dining locally on Small Business Saturday.

The Winter Wonderland, the first event, will be held on Madison Avenue in the downtown district beginning at 12:30 p.m. Next, at 3:30 p.m., the Christmas Parade kicks off at the intersection of Wilson and Smith streets. Marchers, floats and such Christmas celebrities as “Santa and Friends” will walk to City Hall Circle for the finale, the annual Tree Lighting ceremony.

All events are free and everyone is invited. The Winter Wonderland, Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting are presented by the City of Perth Amboy and its Business Improvement District (BID). For more details, visit Perth Amboy’s website, go to the BID’s Facebook page or contact the BID’s office at 732-244-6421.

Embracing the joyful start of the holidays, Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz said, “The spirit of the season will be everywhere in our downtown on Small Business Saturday. Then, you’re invited to come along and join us for the Christmas Parade. Before heading home, stop by to experience the brilliant glow of lights on our Christmas tree and all around City Hall Circle.”

Winter Wonderland at 12:30 p.m. (Madison Avenue & Smith Street)

The Winter Wonderland is part of the BID’s Small Business Saturday event, which reminds residents to shop at Perth Amboy’s local merchants and businesses. The holiday spirit will fill Madison Avenue as the BID – with help from the city’s Department of Recreation – creates a fun zone for kids. Everyone is going to enjoy these activities: inflatables, a trackless train, obstacle course, give-a-ways and cookies from Cakes by Raquel, a local bakery.
