There’s Catnip Wine So You Don’t Have To Drink Alone!

catnip-wine-for-cats

You fancy a little nightcap before hitting the sack? Or maybe you don’t want to think of it like that, maybe you’re more upfront: you like getting smashed by yourself? Look, we don’t judge, but if you’ve grown tired of doing that alone, but still can’t stand the company of humans, you might want to consider enrolling your cat into your solo drinking activities. Yes, your cat. Pictured above is The MosCATo, and the Pinot Meow, two catnip-based non-alcoholic drinks for your feline friend to enjoy. They’re made from a proprietary blend of catnip, fresh beets, and natural preservatives. And what do they do to your cat?

Well, depending on how much they drink – the effects will vary. When cats smell catnip, they tend to get funny, move around and play a lot. The exact opposite occurs when they ingest catnip. They normally will become more “mellowed” out when they drink the wine so it might actually help for those restless nights.

Mellowed out kitty? Yeah, they already spend 3/4 of their life asleep, so we’re not sure where the fun is in this drink. But we imagine it does’t matter anyway, you’ll be too smashed to care. It’s $12 for an 8 Mewounce (get it?) bottle.

Wonder How Your Baby Feels In That Stroller? You Can Find Out With This Adult-Sized Version

adult-stroller-contours-13

Because you can never be too sure that your baby is comfortable enough, the US baby products company Kolocraft has created an adult-sized version of their Contours Bliss stroller for you to try out. That’s right, it’s an exact replica of the baby stroller, only it’ll fit a fully grown adult and give him or her the riding experience of a lifetime. You can find out what it feels like to be pushed around by someone, and get a sense of just how comfy your little one is in the company’s stroller. It’s not for sale, obviously, but you can book a ride when the company has their next test-drive at Chicago’s Mary Bartelme Park, on June 7th. Sure, there might be a lineup for your turn, but you’re all adults and no one is going to throw a tantrum, right?

The Tables Have Turned: You Can Be The One Licking Your Cat This Time

licki-brush-1

Cats are great. Even their little raspy tongues licking you is kind of fun. But haven’t you ever wished you could be the one liking them, rather than the other way around? No? Well… neither have we. But the folks behind Licki Brush seem to think there’s a market for this. Either that, or we’re looking at a very late April’s Fool. The Licki Brush is meant to be inserted in your mouth, and used to brush/lick your cat without getting his fur in your mouth. There’s a website, and they mention an upcoming Kickstarter, though that’s all the info we have. How much? Is it real? Is anyone going to buy this? It’s all up in the air now, but we thought it cute nevertheless.

The Hammocraft: Because Why Not?

hammocraft-1

“Screw-it, let’s do it” has got the be the most American, and awesome, attitude in approaching new product design. It’s definitely what the makers of the Hammocraft told themselves on a beer-fuelled brainstorming session, but what they made is both amazing and ridiculous at the same time. Mostly ridiculous, yes, but amazing for being so. It’s a watercraft first and foremost. And it’s also four hammocks. So that’s it. It’s so that you can go fishing while laying on a hammock. We think.

It’s not even really a water craft, actually. It’s more like a $1,000 kit so that you can make your own craft using two paddle boards, which are not included. Also not included: the hammocks. So yeah, you’re being asked to spend one large on a metal frame that might end up turning into what you see in the pictures. Also required, you and three friends. Not two because balance. And make sure one of them is not super fat, because also balance. It… I mean, it’s a cool idea, sort of. Or maybe not even… Geez, we get it: it’d be awesome to just drink beer all day, while lazily throwing a line down and laying in a hammock. We’re just not sure the Hammocraft is going to get you there.

Floor Cleaning Slippers

slipper-genie-640x533

You guys remember the Baby Mop? It was a onesie lined with microfibre finger pads that cleaned the floor as your toddler crawled around. That was an awesome product! Well now you can have the same sort of “innovation” for the rest of the family. The Floor Cleaning Slippers’ soles are lined with microfibre finger pads as well, which pick up dust and small debris as you walk around. Sure, it’s only going to clean the most walked-around areas in your home, leaving corners to collect all the dust bunnies you didn’t pick up. But we suppose it’s better than nothing. The soles do detach easily for cleaning. And at $5 for a pair, who not get one? Oh… ‘sexism alert’: they only come in ladies sizes 6 to 9.

The Selfie Toaster Is A Thing That Exists

hm-selfie-toaster-

Taking narcissism to a whole new level, the Selfie Toaster makes it possible to make your breakfast in your own likeness. It achieves its results by using metal plates with your likeness cut out; when the toaster operates, the heat will only brown the parts of the bread that make up your face. When you order the thing, it will be shipped with a demo plate so you can see how it works. You’ll then have to go on the company’s website and upload a picture of yours and after a two week wait, you’ll be all set to delight yourself and your possible guests with bread adorned with your beautiful portrait. Best part is that it’s super inexpensive, at $39 from Hammacher Schlemmer.

The Po’ Man’s Charcoal Grill

Po-Man-Charcoal-Grill

Just think of all the fun you’ll have inviting your friends over for a BBQ, only to show them your meats being cooked in the Po’ Man’s Charcoal Grill. It’s a grill that works just like any other, only it looks like a trash can. It is ventilated from the bottom, and features 1 round grate, a flavor lock drip-plate, and 2 skewers so that you can cook up a bunch of protein all at once. Most importantly it does its cooking while making a statement: “The Po Man Grill is more value, more flavor, more meat and less fancy pants.” It’s $115.

The Suvet, 50% Suit, 50% Duvet, 100% Awesome

duvet-suit-sleep-everywhere-suvet-jurys-inns

As far as we’re concerned nap time is pretty much all the time. It looks like we’re not alone thinking that way. British hotel chain Jurys Inn Hotel Group conducted research that showed 56% of Brits struggle to get out of bed in the morning. “Lack of sleep (42%), temperature outside the duvet (40%) and fear of the working day ahead (31%), topped the list of reasons to stay in bed.” So what better solution than to simply bring the duvet with you? The chain then teamed up with famed designer Wendy Benstead to create the Suvet, a duvet/suit hybrid. It looks amazing, will make you the envy of everyone around you on your morning commute, but sadly can’t be bought. If you want it to become a product you can buy, you’re free to Tweet @JurysInnshotels with #JurysInnSuvet. Yes, they’re getting free promotion, but who knows, maybe public pressure will yield results.

So… The Chinese Are Apparently Buying Bottled Canadian Air

aire-embotellado

We imagine that people laughed when water started being sold in plastic bottles, and now look at the industry that became. So we’re not entirely surprised that more well-to-do Chinese folks are turning to a company called VitalityAir that sells pristine Canadian air in a can; when there’s a market, there’s a market. Considering the astronomical pollution levels over there, we can also see the appeal. So for prices ranging between $20CAD (around $14 USD) and $32CAD (around $23 USD) you can buy a bottle that contains 3 litres of compressed air from places like “Lake Louise” or “Banff”, and it’ll last for about 80 one-second puffs.

Vitality Air’s Mr Lam admits that he started out the company as a joke as well when he and co-founder Troy Paquette filled a plastic bag of air and sold it for less than 50 pence on the auction site Ebay.
A second bag sold for $160 (£105).
“That’s when we realised there is a market for this,” says Mr Lam.

Sure enough, their first batch of 500 sold in just 4 days, and there’s another shipment of 4,000 en route to China that’s all already mostly sold out. The company will ship their air anywhere in the world for a flat $9 ship rate.
