A swarm of sock-footed kids climb up inflatable steps to reach the top of a rainbow-colored slide, sliding down in an orderly fashion before bouncing off and running back for another go. At Jumping Jax, children can safely expend energy with abandon, playing in air-filled structures that cushion them when they fall or work together to stage a production of the Icarus myth. The play arena sports a multitude of attractions including a bounce house with a Twister-board floor and two low-hanging ziplines.
At eight showrooms across the Kansas City area, SleepOne Mattress Superstore's aptly named sleep advisors recommend mattresses that will accommodate budgets and physical conditions such as stiffness and pain. After scouring the showroom's floor, the staff might suggest a Sterns and Foster mattress made with materials such as silk and cashmere. They also offer delivery and removal of the old mattresses.
SleepOne Mattress Superstore also fights nightmares with several guarantees. For example, their staff will refund 110% of the difference in price if customers find the same mattress sold for less. They also exchange mattresses for up to a year (only charging a redelivery fee) and offer a rehabilitation program for reformed boogeymen.
For 30 years, Pierce Medical Clinic has taken a holistic approach to health, addressing the cosmetic side effects of aging and illness while enhancing physical function. Doctor of osteopathy John Gamble and advanced registered nurse practitioner Morris Coltrain oversee patient care, starting with face-to-face chats to draw up individual wellness plans. The plans forge a path toward goals such as weight loss, youthful skin, and an eye-catching immune system, which the team sustains with steady medical support. Additionally, the staff provides complimentary body analyses that enlighten patients with stats about their water and fat retention and identify their target weight. Treatments may include simple solutions such as calorie restriction and plant-derived Vemma meal supplements, which fortify the body by sprouting flying buttresses. The staff also administers high-tech medical procedures, including an FDA-approved technique for removing heavy metals from tissues and natural hormone-replacement therapy to combat disorders ranging from infertility to depression.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
