Never-Ending Birthday Card Goes On and On and On

Never Ending Birthday Card

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is the card you should give to frenemies, friends, and family who you want to annoy the crap out of– but while still being endearing– at the same time. The card starts playing as soon as its opened, and as its name suggests, it won’t stop until it runs out of juice. That’s an estimated 3 hours of playing time, which should be enough to drive most people bonkers.

The best part? There’s no way to stop it, because it will keep on playing even if you tear, submerge, or burn the card. How’s that for dedication?

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is available for £9.99 (~$16.)

Wearable Feeder Mask Lets You Get Face to Beak With Hummingbirds

Wearable Hummingbird Feeder Mask

Calling all lovers of birds! A contraption called the ‘Eye to Eye’ is now available so you can get up close and personal with hummingbirds while you feed them. It’s basically a wearable bird feeder that lets you literally come face to beak with the birds as they feed. A miniaturized feeding tube is embedded in the middle of the mask, which means the birds will be in your face while it feeds.

For $80, you’ll get two feeding tubes, two laminated inlays, and one face shield (of course you need one.) Is it worth it? Is it not? That depends on you and on the experience that you’re hoping to get out of it. You can get the ‘Eye to Eye’ mask here.

Side A’s Got the Party Mix: Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Pay homage to a part of your past and recall the awesomeness of the era of mix tapes with this cassette tape-shaped coffee table. The gigantic cassette tape sits atop custom made steel legs and is built with removable remote and bottle holders, cleverly positioned in cassette’s holes. The coolest part is probably the cassette’s label, which you can actually write on because that part is actually a white board. Neat huh?

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment– And It Looks Awesome!

Are you excited for Ant-Man? I know I am. He’s not your typical superhero and he certainly doesn’t look it, considering he runs with ants and is roughly the size of one when he transforms. The concept was met with skepticism but a lot of folks were intrigued when the trailer was released. Now here’s another version of that trailer by Antonio Toscano, a LEGO builder extraordinaire who recreated the whole thing using nothing but LEGO bricks.

Maybe he should do the entire movie next? You can check out more of Antonio’s work here.

Too Bad You Can’t Eat It: Inflatable Pizza Slice Pool Float

Inflatable Pizza Slice Swimming Pool Float

Mushrooms, pepperoni, olives, and lots of cheese– that’s what makes a perfect pizza for me. However, regardless of your toppings of choice, you’ll undoubtedly be amused at the weirdness and awesomeness of this swimming pool float. Yep, that’s right: it’s shaped like gigantic slice of pizza. In this case, the crust is something you can’t do without, because it also serves as the head rest.

The 72-inch inflatable features cord connectors so you can combine additional loungers (imagine combining a couple of slices to form one whole floating giant pizza!) It also has two drink holders on board so you won’t be thirsty on your floating pie. Too bad you can’t actually sink your teeth into it…

It’s available online for $40+.
