The Aquapod Bottle Launcher, now available to pre-order!

It’s been a while since an incoming product has caused such a stir at The Discovery Store Towers but it looks like this week, after weeks of waiting, longing, yearning, the Aquapod Bottle Launcher is finally going to arrive.

The Aquapod is the the worlds most exciting, not to mention safest, bottle launcher, and its futuristic design guarantees to slay your imagination.

When we first demoed our sample model Aquapod we were expecting it to be good, but not so good that we lost a whole afternoon to loading bottles up and launching them off around the carpark, all the while hooting, whooping and slapping hands like rhapsodic teenagers.

When that first bottle took off, arcing high up into the clouds, with a quite unexpected velocity, we were all kids again. And like all children when they find a toy they love, we wanted to play with it again, and again and again and again. And so will you – that’s the power of The Aquapod.

Its simple concept (it flys empty plastic bottles about 100 feet into the air using an explosion of air pressure) might not sound much on paper, but to witness it first hand is a thrill that elicites one of two reactions in mainly all who witness it.

‘Wow!’ and ‘Cooooool!’.

Me, I couldn’t help but combine the two, along with a scattering of other words which we will not dwell upon here, in a public forum, where they may invade the impressionable minds of innocent children.

For those of you who are bored of the talk now and want to see it working, here’s a video of The Aquapod in action.

If you’d like to snare an Aquapod for yourself before they all sell out, and the interest they have generated has been exceptional, get over to and get your pre-order in place today. As soon as the first batch arrive, we’ll be packing them back up, labelling them and dispatching them same day….and we promise not to go outside and test every one of them just to make sure they work. Honest we do.


Annoying Monsters

Rude, crude and in the nude!

The Annoying Monsters crew have arrived at The Discovery Store, a brand new collection for Summer 2011!

This rag-tag collection of bad mannered and noisy creatures have started kicking around our warehouse and we’ve had enough. The endless barrage of belching, parping, gurgling, bouncing, hysterical laughter and snoring was funny at first but now it’s really bugging us, so we’ve decided to put them all up for adoption. That’s right, you can own your very own ‘Annoying Monster’ this summer…enjoy!

Despite their complete lack of heirs and graces, social etiquette and a downright lack of respect for authority, the Annoying Monsters crew are enormously popular with the kids this year.
If you’re looking to adopt one (or some) of our Annoying Monsters, but are so far unconvinced (and we wouldn’t blame you), allow us to explain in further detail exactly what it is about these Monsters that makes them so adorable to kiddies.

Number one! They’re interactive. A child pushes a certain part of the monsters body and it reacts with a sound automatically. A quick poke in the tummy produces a burp or a parp, a quick prod in the eye elicits a howling scream and a squeeze of the foot causes the monster to laugh and jump around like a totally insane maniac. If the child stops playing with the monster then it falls asleep and begins to snore like a big pig. Best of all, if the monsters hand is pressed, it repeats the last thing it heard in its own silly monster voice!

There are 5 monsters currently clogging up The Discovery Store Warehouse that we want rid of, namely Infuriating Igor (RED), Aggravating Alfred (Orange), Bothersome Boris (Blue), Pestering Percy (GREEN) and Irritating Ethel (PINK).

Tech Specs:
– Approx 18cm x 13cm
– 5 monsters to collect in a variety of shapes and colours
– Interactive functions including movement, sound effects and record/play mode
– Each Monster requires 3 x AAA batteries, supplied. Replacements available on-line & in-store
