  2. A book that records your dreams. Even ones you don’t know you had.
    A mirror that shows you your potential.
    A portable radio that tells you how the other person feels.
    A carving knife that only cuts the amount you need. 
    A pair of shoes that make you feel fresher the further you walk.

  4. A radio that really does play the soundtrack to your day (FM), or a song that brings a loved one home safely (AM).

  5. A battered shoe that brings great happiness to anyone who wears it.

  6. A magic rock that reverses environmental damage

  7. A bracelet that can be set for time travel or teleportation

  8. If I were a god of Bulikov I would create a revolving house so tha you never need to sit in the shade.
    I would also create a pair of shoes which excercise for me when I haven’t got time, or the weather is bad.
    Next on my list would be a bicycle which glides over the hedgerows, and there is no need to peddle hard when the wind is against you.   Watch out Mary Poppins!

  9. I would like to create a Moral Compass. 
    The owner could consult the device whenever they required ‘direction’, looking for guidance to show the right or wrong path for any given dilemma.

  10. I would definitely make a teleporter so that I could go anywhere in the world in a second, I hate travelling so this would be amazing for me!

  11. A ring that will allow you to understand and speak any language

  12. A ring to make people forget certain memories…

  13. I would create a hapiness mirror so that everyone who looked into it would find contentment

  14. Since I prefer heroes who think their way out of trouble more than fight out of it, I’d go for a small item, a ring or earring maybe, that would tell a character whether someone was telling the truth or lying. Knowing who he/she/it could trust would be an invaluable tool in riding the challenges of a story [not to mention a challenge to the writer, who would have to invent problems that this wouldn’t sabotage?]

  15. A fridge that always replenishes itself with food.

  16. Magic beans that grow instantly so the no one would ever go hungry  #CityOfStairs 

  17. And the winners of our City of Stairs competition have been anounced. You can find them here:
