Which Infomercial Products Make the Grade?

The 30 Second Smile is better than a standard toothbrush, but I prefer my existing electric toothbrush.

Kangaroo Keeper, Global TV Concepts LLC: B+

The Kangaroo Keeper is good for people who use multiple purses and crave more compartments for their purse contents. You can lift it out of one bag and put it in the other. It has many compartments and pockets, and a handy clip for hooking your key into and avoiding the inevitable fishing expedition for your keys.

My only complaint is that I would have liked the compartments in the bags to have had different color lining so I could see the objects better.

If you have the discipline to keep all your purse contents in the pockets of the Kangaroo Keeper, it's a great tool. But if your purse is a LaBrea tar pit of brushes, phone, wallet and gum, then this could help, but won't do the tidying for you.

Cami Secret, Ontel Products Corporation : C-

Cami Secret is a modesty panel that clips to your bra straps and covers the lower portion of your cleavage. It seems like a nice alternative to wearing a camisole all the time under sweaters and blouses that are low-cut, but Cami Secret doesn't deliver in the way it actually works when you are wearing it.

The garter clips fasten well, but they aren't adjustable, and because the bottom portion of the dickey doesn't fasten to anything, it rides up and gathers in an unnatural way.

The fabric hangs loosely and just looked weird. Maybe it didn't fit me well, but I'm not petite. A couple of times I looked down and the bottom of the Cami Secret was outside of my sweater and hanging out like I was wearing a bib at Red Lobster -- not a good look.

I can see how this might work better if you worked in a profession like teaching where you just wanted one more barrier to accidental exposure or if you feel like you are being downbloused regularly. But for me, it was just weird looking and I was constantly fidgeting with it to get it to lay flat.

TV Hat iPod Viewer, SKM Industries Inc.: D

Even though the whole point of the hat was to minimize glare, I found that the magnifying glass in the hat really exacerbated the glare issues of the clear plastic screen that holds the iPod in the pouch. If the whole point of the hat is to minimize glare outside, this was a significant failing, in my assessment.

Also the weight of the iPod I put in the hat's pocket pulled the hat down. I had to hold it with my hand at the back of my head to keep it on.

And, oh yeah: Did I mention you look ridiculous wearing it?
