All hail the mobile phone! These days our phones are the most precious of belongings because we use them for everything from saving contacts, messages and photos to watching videos and listening to music. Now you can give your phone the reverence it deserves. Place your precious safe inside this very cool Jam Jar when you're banging out the tunes, giving it the glorious pedestal its entitled to! The Jam Jar Speaker comes with a remote control, so you can play, pause, change the volume, all while your phone is safe inside the glass case. The 360° base speaker has beautiful high quality sound with a bass booster. It comes with a built in mic, so if you get a call while your phone's in the jar, you can converse via the speaker; how futuristic! The Jam Jar is a beautiful wireless speaker in an elegant display stand that makes a great gift for any music fan as a house warming or birthday present. Also a lovely gift for a happy couple getting married, giving them the sweet sound of music in their home for many years to come.
“My name is Greta Thunberg. I am 16 years old. I come from Sweden. And I speak on behalf of future generations” the teenage Nobel peace prize nominee told MPs in the UK recently. Greta Thunberg began the worldwide school strike for the environment in 2018. No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference is a collection of 11 of Greta's speeches, the first of which she gave three weeks after the strike in August 2018 and the latest in the UK parliament in May 2019. The book takes its title from a speech Thunberg made at the COP24 UN climate talks. Penguin, the publishers, described her as “the voice of a generation facing the full force of climate catastrophe… quiet, angry and unafraid, speaking truth to power.” This is an amazing book for inspiring young people, and for anyone with an interest in how Greta managed to start a revolution through her words and actions.
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there. Here's just some of the reasons we love our pops!
