    LINKS: missingmommycure.com | easydaysies.com | amazon.com | School is in full swing and depending on your child's age, there can be challenges as a new year kicks off. FOX 5's Laura Evans has found some great products to get through the challenges of the start of school.
Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you are behind, it's okay. My solution is to place an order now, then print off a picture or email a shot of the item you are giving or sending to dad. Then let him know it's on the way.

Here are three items that are unique and will please almost any daddy.

Jackery Leaf

We all need a phone case and many people today are getting phone cases that do more than just cover and protect your phone. Well, here is one that also serves as an external battery.

This is called the Jackery Leaf, a snap-on battery case that is sleek and functional, and allows dad to charge his phone on the go.

The company says the charger adds up to 110 extra hours of operation time.

They come in three colors: white, orange and black. They are made for the iPhone 5 and 5s.

You can find the Jackery Leaf on www.jackeryusa.com and Amazon. It’s on sale right now for $60.

CHARGEKEY

Here is another cool little gadget for your phone. This idea was sent to me by our FOX 5 Twitter friend @dcborn61, who happens to be a gadget guru himself.

This is the CHARGEKEY. It is a portable lightning cable designed to fit on your keychain, just like a house key. In fact, it's made in the shape of a key.

This allows you to always have an iPhone cable on you so you can charge or sync your iPhone from any USB port. It's perfect for a guy on the go.

It works just like your standard white Apple charging cable or Micro USB cable. They plug into any USB port (computer, wall charger, external battery pack, etc.) and then into your phone.

The whole project is a Kickstarter success story. They blew through their funding goal and are now working on creating their third product.

An important note: This is made for the iPhone 5 and  for micro USB compatible devices. It came out about six months ago and it's so popular, it's on back order. But you can still place an order.

The charge key is $29 on www.hellonomad.com.

Play Mat Shirt

And finally, forget the gadgets. This one is all about relaxation at the hands of your child. Now that simply does not sound possible – or does it?

Well, let me show you the play mat shirt.

Here's the story: Becky Thada was hanging with her 16-month-old daughter one day when her daughter started wheeling around her wooden train on Becky's back. She thought that feels good. A nice little massage!

Well, she sent an email to an artistic friend saying he should design a shirt with roads printed on the back so kids could give their parents back massages while they play.

He gave careful thought to which features and colors to include to entice your little one to have fun while giving you a massage. They include a little story that you can read to your child while he or she plays on your back to spark their imagination and keep the cars zooming.

This is multitasking at its best. Playtime for your kids and relaxation for you.

They have train tracks, a shirt with tracks for car play, a space-themed shirt that glows in the dark. And there's also a shirt for number tracing.

They $23 each. You can find these on etsy.com. Search "bkykid."
