The Planetary Glass Set Is A Great Way To Teach The Kids About The Solar System

2033_planetary_glass_set

The Holidays seem to start earlier every year, don’t they? But yes, it’s apparently time to start thinking about what to buy your loved ones, and what better to do so than by getting your own family a cool set of Planetary Glasses. Sure, if you’ve got young kids, they may not get the same kind of kick out of these as they might from a brand new tablet [inserting token sad commentary about living in a time where small children are gifted tablets], but once they get used to them they’ll actually learn something about our universe. It’s a set of 10 glasses, each made to look like a planet… and yes, apparently Pluto made the cut, although it’s smaller than the others. The Sun is there too, of course, and that one’s a little bigger than the rest. The set will set you back $50, and we think it’s worth every penny.

BottleLoft Saves Some Space In Your Fridge

BottleLoft-1

Once again showcasing how we definitely do live in the first world, the BottleLoft is a device specifically designed to make more room in your fridge for beer. Because a full fridge is a problem, in some parts, and making room for beer is definitely an essential necessity. Ok… we’re only being a little bit sarcastic, because we actually do like beer and think this is a pretty cool device. It uses Neodymium magnets to hold on to your bottle caps, attaches to the “ceiling” of your fridge using a special 3M tape and can hold up to 88lbs under ideal conditions. That should be many times more than enough to hold 6 beers, so we’re giving the BottleLoft a hearty thumbs up. Especially at the $39 pledge pricing.

Dunking Buddy Helps You Dunk Your Cookies

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 1.19.01 PM

Living in the first world sure seems to make it possible to think it’s necessary to design things like the Dunking Buddy. It’s a little gadget that helps you dunk your cookies in milk, because apparently holding them in your fingers is either too hard or too annoying. You could, after all, drop one in… and then that would be disastrous. So the Dunking Buddy attaches to the side of your glass with a magnet (with one part inside) and gives you a tiny plastic tray in which to place your sugary flour discs. That way the rampant danger of drowning cookies is mitigated, and everyone can snack stress-free.

It’s still under development, with a patent pending (!) and an undisclosed price. But you can sign up to be notified of when it’ll be launched.

Cucumbo Makes Cucumber Coils

There are those who cook because they have to eat, and then there are those who do because it’s fun. If you’re in the second camp, maybe you’ll get a kick out of Cucumbo. It doesn’t really do anything other than to slice a cucumber in a coil pattern. Stick it in there, and twist. The end product looks kind of cool, and we suppose presentation is important. It’s a cheap and simple way to have a little fun in the kitchen. $13.

Spreadthat Butter Knife Uses Body Heat to Spread That Butter

Spreadthat Butter Knife

Butter isn’t the easiest thing to spread on a bagel if you just grabbed the tub from the fridge. The good news, butter lovers, is that it now gets easier with the Spreadthat Butter knife. It’s a futuristic-looking butter knife that’s coated in titanium. Aside from making the knife look cooler than the average, it also serves the purpose of conducting and transfering heat from your hand onto the blade. That way, the butter, jam, chocolate, or whatever it is you want to spread melts and in turn, becomes easier to spread.

The Spreadthat Butter Knife is available for $20.
