Miss Frugal loves to watch Dragons Den with me and always has her own opinions on whether the dragons should or shouldn’t invest in a business. She’s usually pretty sure that she has an idea that the Dragons would love to invest in so I decided to see what she could come up with and while we were at it, Master Frugal and I had a go aswell.
I love this one. The black square is our kitchen window and it’s connected to a box on top of the Guinea Pig hutch with a little chute that we use to pour food into the box – this will only need to be done about once every four weeks according to Miss Frugal. The food box on top of the hutch has a smaller chute that connects to the Guinea Pig’s food bowl so when he’s hungry, he hits the red button on the hutch and voila, a portion of food is despatched to his food bowl.
In case you’re wondering, it’s a Money Flower and apparently when she’s figured out how to make it, the leaves will be £5.00 notes and will grow back every time you pick one.
Never one to be left out, Master Frugal had a go at being an inventor aswell and invented a lollipop that’s not only in the shape of himself, it also has a toy car, a balloon and a Kinder egg in the centre of it ‘so you get a treat when you’re sad cos you’ve finished your lolly’ – can’t fault his thinking….
This is my contribution – a five minute pause button for the kids. Just long enough to speak to someone on the phone in peace, or enjoy a wee without little people following me or even just to enjoy a bar of chocolate all to myself!
I’m not sure if any of our ideas would get an investment in the Den but we had fun trying 😉 What do you think, would you invest in us or do you have an idea for something that is crying out to be invented?
