An adventure to my grandparents’ house when I was a lot younger always included a special “fizzy drink” that was created with the very first edition of a SodaStream. To my 10-year-old mind, that was the coolest thing ever! I know I’m not the only one who has indulged in the food enjoyed only at my grandparents’ home as it an unspoken rule that grandma will always feed you more than you need.

But as the school holidays are just a week away, let’s take a look at some of the gadgets that will make you a hit on the “cool” list and make your holiday babysitting an easy, happy ride. You can also go into the draw to win an awesome, new SodaStream by entering the competition at the bottom!
