Invention ideas for kids it's not something that we usually see in our grown-up world, but it turns out, that some of the little humans have even greater imaginations than us, adults. British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox asked over 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, to come up with ideas for crazy inventions. Then, he chose around 60 ideas of 600 submitted drawings and presented them to local makers that could help with manufacturing.

The kids were invited to explain their selected inventions themselves. The makers had only four weeks to produce real-life objects, making sure that they created exactly what the kids wanted. The project was called "INVENTORS!"

"The children were the stars, and I gained so much pleasure seeing them getting excited about their and other peoples' ideas," Wilcox told Bored Panda. "Instead of just putting the drawings on the fridge door as most adults do with a child’s drawings, why not push the ideas as far as they can go?" states the project’s website. "Taking the power of children’s imaginations seriously and see where it leads to."

These genius kids have come up with ideas solving not only everyday problems but also more serious issues, such as wars and helping people with disabilities. Scroll down to see the amazing inventions for kids from kids themselves.

If you're cleaning (dishes, ovens, low cupdoards) or cooking, and you don't want to carry the baby it could be very functional. Especially in a small space where you can't put a playpen or a highchair

I like how much design was put into it. I mean, child-wall-hanging-thing is one part, but the "make it look like paint splatter on the wall", thats some serious design stuff going on here!

This would be cool if the materials could be softer and if it definitely had a way to easily attach it to any wall without damage so you could put them right by you while you worked out on a treadmill or other activities and they could be at your face level.

you would want to put your baby on the nearest wall just in case you have to do a really quick but important thing.

Better yet, the bathroom, so you can take your time on the pot, and they won't be crying at the door, or crawling around touching gross stuff. Sold!

Love it. I'd be able to fold clothe a without him crying to be held, or throwing clothes everywhere. I'd get one for every room. Haha

Because they're 10 yr old boys and it sounds like a fun thing to do to a baby, I suspect! LOL! Not sure why the paint spatters pattern is for - adds more fun, I guess. :)

I don't think that would work! Weight equals pressure equals creak.
