Here is this week’s list of three crowdfunding campaigns that have caught my eye in the last week for being unique, affordable and worth checking out. Click through to see my list of this week’s notable Kickstarter projects.

Octopus by Joy

What is it?
Octopus by Joy is an icon based water resistant watch for kids that teaches them good habits and the concept of time.

Why do I like it?
This watch has been designed especially for small children ages 3 to 8 years old who might not yet understand the concept of time. Icons on the watch face remind kids when it’s time for certain events. Parents can program the watch to automatically show an icon when it’s time to brush their teeth, take a bath, feed their pets, eat dinner, go to bed and more. According to the makers of Octopus watch, this will foster good habits and help boost self-esteem

Where can I find more info?
The Octopus campaign has already surpassed their funding goal of $50,000 with 32 days left in the campaign. You can pre-order an Octopus by Joy watch for $59 with an estimated delivery date of March 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Golchi Travel Bottle

What is it?
The Golchi Travel Bottle is a portable beverage container that can hold two beverages at once.

Why do I like it?
It’s a 2-in-1 modular travel bottle that been designed to keep cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours. There’s even a small storage slot that can be used to hold cereal or snacks. The bottle can be reconfigured into one jumbo container (27oz) or if you only need to carry one beverage, you can carry them separately which gives you an 11oz bottle and a 13oz bottle.

The Golchi campaign has already reached their funding goal of $30,000 with 56 days left in the campaign. You can pre-order a Golchi bottle for $32 with an estimated delivery date of December 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Sling camera strap and lens cap holder by Restrap

What is it?
Sling is an ergonomic camera strap with magnets that can hold your camera’s lens cap.

Why do I like it?
This camera strap has been designed with comfort and usability in mind. It distributes the weight of a heavy DSLR camera so you can keep taking shots after hours of wearing it. There are strong magnets built into the attachment points so that you can easily switch straps. They are also offering a Grip Sling hand strap and a lens cap holder. Both use magnets. The cap holder the part that I like best. I’m always misplacing my cap, but a magnet holder like this one would fix that issue.

Where can I find more info?
The Sling campaign has already reached their funding goal of $14,544 with 21 days left in the campaign. You can pre-order a cap holder for about $17 US, the Grip Sling hand strap for $38 and the Sling camera strap for $52 with an estimated delivery date of September 2016.
