  • The Working Pedal Powered Forklift

    Array
    Gear  |  Toy

    This Pedal Powered Forklift($320) looks like a real woking and miniature Forklift! The chassis is made from durable ABS plastic, and the crank powered forks are capable of lifting up to 6 1/2 lbs. It’s limited to kids up to 55-inches. And a maximum riding weight of up to 110 lbs. 
    "This is the pedal-powered, ride-on version of a Linde 394 forklift that raises and lowers at its driver’s command. Made in Germany, its lifting fork is raised by turning a hand crank and held into place with a locking lever, tilting slightly backward to keep an included plastic 6 1/2 lb.-capacity pallet stable, just like a real forklift. Pedals power the forklift forward and backwards with a precisely engineered chain drive, its integrated eccentric keeps the chain taut for efficient power transfer to the rear axle."

    The ‘Grand Victorian’ model (pictured on top) starts at $19,999 and includes such unnecessary amenities as “…a wraparound porch, elegant stained glass window, window boxes full of fresh blooms, a sunny skylight, and a working doorbell and brass door knocker. Inside, the decorative details continue with a bay window with a cozy window seat, sponge-painted walls, simulated hardwood floors, fireplace mantel and an upstairs loft accessed by a ladder.”
    The ‘
    Cotton Candy Manor’ (pictured on the bottom) starts at a cheaper, though equally ridiculous, $9,599. And both playhouses come with the option for miniature matching furniture like a playable grand piano, kitchen appliances and even spaces for TVs...

    "Casualties of War
    Plastic moulded figurines with bases
    7cm high
    The hell of war comes home. In July 2009 Colorado Springs Gazettea published a two-part series entitled “Casualties of War”. The articles focused on a single battalion based at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, who since returning from duty in Iraq had been involved in brawls, beatings, rapes, drunk driving, drug deals, domestic violence, shootings, stabbings, kidnapping and suicides. Returning soldiers were committing murder at a rate 20 times greater than other young American males. A seperate investiagtion into the high suicide rate among veterans published in the New York Times in October 2010 revealed that three times as many California veterans and active service members were dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We hear little about the personal hell soldiers live through after returning home. "
