Car basics

While there is some overlap between age groups, car seats generally fall into 3 different age categories: 1) 0-6 months old 2) 6 months old – 4 years old 3) 4-7 years old (booster seat) For the first 6 months the convenience of a specialised pull-in/pull-out capsule cannot be overstated – particularly if you have  […]

Bikes, trikes and other toys with wheels

Now this is where a cool dad starts to shine… your child is starting to get more physically active and is looking for a playmate to go and ride their new toy. This is a great time to pull out the old skateboard/bike from the garage and take them down the park. You may start […]

Baby carriers

This may seem obvious but there are a few to choose from… oh and I’m talking about those things that strap around your chest so your child is strapped to you, Baby Bjorn is one of the originals, but there are others out there like Belle which do the same thing. The good quality brands […]

Electronic devices

I’m talking about an iPad or something similar. If you’re not a dad yet and you frown when see those kids with their iPads and what looks like their parents ignoring them and you tell yourself you’ll never do that, well have another think about it when you are a dad. I do suggest using […]

This is probably going a little too far

The Very Fast Pram My reaction when I saw this was, cool! But Cooldads.net does not endorse having a real baby in a pram like this.  We at Cooldads.net appreciate the level of pointless engineering that went into this beast of a pram, you can only wonder what this Dad’s wife said when he said […]

Badly need a drink?

A cunning way to enjoy a sneaky drink at sporting events (or at home if it gets to that point)  Have you ever found yourself in a situation where alcohol was not premitted, like the Wimbledon finals or a childcare P&C meeting and all you want is a smooth drop of singe malt whiskey from […]

Pram bike

You may have noticed that it’s not a dad riding that bike.  I think if it was, the bike might have a few modifications made to it. For instance, I think  a bull bar would be handy because it doesn’t look that safe for the child and you never know when a bull might run […]

Need somewhere to store your beverages? Need to get your child somewhere? Look no further than the Esky Pram. A prototype is still in the developmental phase so you will have to wait to see an image.

Practical yet fashionable

Ok, here’s a couple of clothes you’re gonna need to get you through the week: At least a week’s worth of work attire: You may not get time during the week to wash and dry so the weekends have the tendency to turn into washing and cleaning weekends rather than weekends of relaxing. It’s best […]
