The Stap-Man is a stapler that looks like Pac-Man. That’s it. It’s got “two small rubber “feet” to keep him firmly balanced on your desk, and comes with a small plastic box filled with 1,000 mini staples to get you started.” It’s $12.
Run here, don’t be late for that appointment, meet that deadline you idiot, crap how did you manage to miss your train, oh god is it really time to wake up already?! That’s life for a lot of us. But if your self-preservation instinct kicks in once in a while, you may want to consider taking a tiny breather now and then. What better way to do so than with a hot cup of tea? And what better way to have that if not with this Sloth Tea Infuser? It’s just a cute reminder that this 15 minutes you’re going to take for yourself, you’re going to take with slow deliberate pleasure. And you won’t even stress out about the fact you spent money on something technically unnecessary, since the darn thing is just $10.
Hot chocolate and marshmallows, anyone? If you’ve got a pulse and are on the Internet, there’s a chance cats hold a soft spot for you. And if you’ve got a pulse and are on this planet, you’ll find yourself in a tiny minority by disliking hot cocoa. So what better way to liven up your cup than with a bunch of cute Kitten marshmallows? They float and look up at you as you sip, preparing themselves mentally for when the time comes to swallow them up. You monster.
It’s 860 Yen, or about $7USD for a box, and it appears to contain between 10 and 13 (if we understand the translated page correctly). Yes it’s Japan only at the moment, but they might deliver.
Y’all have to watch this. If it doesn’t put a smile on your face, you’re smiling-dysfunctional. If you need a description before watching a video, the headline should have taken care of that. If you need details in your description, the most we can add here is that the vid was made by “HelloDenizen”, who’ve made just one more vid called BubbleP0rn. We’re not sure what that one’s about (ain’t nobody got time to be watching all the videos) but it does have 2.7M views so it’s probably pretty good.

There really isn’t a whole bunch to say about this product. It’s a USB hub with three MicroSD card readers. The hubs are shaped like a pig, a cat, or a dog. The MicroSD card readers are suckling from the hub. It’s… cute. Right? Anyway, the flash cards themselves clearly have to be purchased separately, but they’re cheap so you won’t break the bank in the process. It’s £19.99, or $31 and the PigChum is currently available, while the others are up for pre-order.
Depending on who you ask, babies can be a blessing just as much as, well, not one. (We’re not going to go as far as to call them a curse because legal is going to have our heads on a plate if we do) So it stands to reason that at least some people will find the above baby boots adorable. They’re shaped sort of like a fortune cookie, with a long tag sticking out. Clearly, the tag is the fortune and you can choose to either write your own, or let the good folks at Sushi Booties pick them for you. The boots are made from soft plush fleece, with no-slip grip soles, and will set you back $28 for a pair. A nice touch is the Chinese takeout shaped box they come in.
We suppose people like to wear jewelry for a variety of reasons, but very often it’s to denote a semblance of affluence. Sure, it doesn’t have to be about that… a lot of people like quirky adornments. Case in point: the Sloth Ring, pictured above. Made by hand in polymer clay, the lovely sloths attach themselves to your fingers and do what sloths do: just stay there. Letting yourself be seen wearing one could mean anything from “you’re a sloth lover”, to “this is how lazy I am, and I’m proud of it.” Whatever your inclination for wanting one, it’ll set you back $20.

Lana Filippone designed the above T-Rex corn of the cob holders. She actually designed a bunch of them as part of a design competition for Imm-Living, which she won. That means that not only are they really cool to look at, they’re going to be made available for you to purchase soon. We’re not sure when, or for how much. But you can hit the jump for more pictures and links.
Quirky tea infusers are popular round these parts. Remember the Mr.Tea infuser from last October? Or the Deathstar infuser from last August? Or even the Robot Tea Infuser from last November? We think the ManaTea takes the cake. Just look at him, just chilling on that tea cup, soaking his silicone bottom for your drinking enjoyment. And he’s all of $10, a steal!
