When it comes to kid inventions, there’s a fine line between brilliant and cray. From a piggyback-ride-helper to gaming sneakers, here’s the stuff that caught our eyes. Whether they’re of any use to your family—well, we’ll let you be the judge.

Kick It

Kids like sneakers and they like video games, so it only makes sense to combine the two. Just do your bambino’s hard working teacher a favor by not sending her to school wearing these light chasing game sneaks.

Available at skechers.com, $65.
