Father's Day

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Father’s Day always seems to sneak up on us. We want to get dad a gift but don’t want to get the stereotypical tie or mug.

Dr. Frank Viggiano joined the KDKA Radio Morning News Tuesday with a few products any father would enjoy as a gift.  

The first thing Dr. Frank talked about was The Ultimate Garden Broom. It is a heavy duty broom that can be used outdoors.

“It’s made of coconut leaves so therefore it doesn’t mildew, build moisture, or bacteria. It basically stays in tact the entire time you use it. What’s important is that the bristles are very tough so a lot of people love it for their gardens,” Dr. Frank said.

The broom looks and feels very sturdy. It would be a good product for a father who works out in the yard.

The Guardian is his next product. It can turn off the water main from a remote. It clamps down on the pipe and has sensors to turn the valve.  

Some people may be confused by this product and may wonder when it could be used.

“In Hawaii they are having minor earthquakes. Automatically it senses the earth moving with the two sensors that the guardian provides and it shuts the water main off,” Dr. Frank went on to say.

This is a product that can be really useful in emergency situations.

His next gadget is portable Bluetooth speakers from woodulisten.com.

“These speakers are made from birch and are in the shape of a golf ball. These would be good for a dad who works in an office. They do not produce a lot of volume but are perfect for small rooms that do not allow for a lot of noise.”

Dr. Frank continued, “What’s interesting is the way you charge them. You can charge them independently; there is a USB port on the bottom of them. It also comes with a little charging plate.”

If you’re looking to give dad an assist in the yard Dr. Frank recommends the Worx GT Revolution Trimmer. It is a trimmer, edger, and a mini mower.

 “They extended the shaft by a foot and they also have a button at the top so instead of tapping to get the line, now you just push the button and the line feeds automatically,” Dr. Frank stated.
