The always innovative Japanese have come up with a device to encourage children to chew their food properly. The Kami Kami Sensor is a plastic bar with an electric counter that hangs off the ears like eyeglasses and straps under a child's chin, rewarding kids by playing a song when the counter reaches one thousand. The Kami Kami sells for 11,550 yen (about $120) and seems like the perfect solution for parents tired of yelling "chew your food," because certainly a child who doesn't respond to nagging won't rip this device off her head and throw it across the room.

When my child doesn't chew his food properly, he gags and vomits. We both learn pretty quickly that chewing is more desirable.

Woo hoo! I saved $120!
