Kids are great, aren't they? But you don't necessarily want them using all of the apps, viewing all of the websites, and tweaking all of the system settings that a grown-up has access to. Windows, OS X, and Chrome OS each have tools for creating child-friendly accounts — here's how to set them up.

This is absolutely one of the coolest and most fun videos I've seen in a while mostly because it's a time machine back to childhood in the 80's and 90's. The stop-motion video, directed by Marc Donahue, reveals the imagination of a kid and it's filled with everything we love coming to life: Back to the Future! Candy! Ghostbusters! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Where the Wild Things Are! Super Mario! And so much more. Imagination is a powerful thing.

Taking the train is my favourite form of transportation. I don't have to drive, get stuck in traffic, nor do I have to go through security and be crammed in impossibly tiny spaces.

Unless you've opted for an antique carriage dating back to the 1920s, most modern strollers are able to collapse small enough to squeeze into a car's trunk. But the lightweight OmniO Rider actually folds small enough to be worn as a comfortable backpack, giving you an emergency means to transport a tired toddler without having to carry them.

Kids are already a pretty fantastic workout since they require constant attention, but if you find your fitness routine hindered by having to deal with a cumbersome stroller, you'll probably be intrigued by the KidRunner. It's a new take on the stroller that's pulled instead of pushed, letting you easily bring your kids along for a run or a jog by strapping a mini U-Haul trailer to your belt.
