A Frankenstein Light Switch


Wanna add a bit of flair to your living space? How about the Frankenstein Light Switch? It’s a plastic cover for your light switch that ends up making it look like a giant Frankenstein style circuit breaker. It comes in single or double switch versions, for $10 or $15. Comes unpainted, so it’ll fit any decor. Unfortunately, high demand means you may have to wait up to 10 weeks to get yours, but if you have access to a 3D printer, the file is also available for you to print at home.

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.)

Would You Ever Use A Portable, Inflatable Bathtub?


File this under novelty items, but it’s interesting nonetheless. The Inflatable Bath Tub for adults is exactly what it sounds like: a bathtub that you fill up with air, and can use “anywhere”. It comes with its own air pump, and when deployed, will fit a person up to 6’5″ and 280 lbs. Of course, you’ll have the issue of figuring out how you’re going to fill it with water, and then drain it afterwards. Although it comes with a 4 foot accordion drain hose, we imagine that setting up an inflatable bath tub on your fifth floor apartment poses more challenges than most people imagine. Still, if you like to live dangerously, you can own one for $179. And unlike the girl in the picture, it’s totally ok to get in with your clothes off.

Like a Fish Out Of Water: Giant Soy Sauce Water Bottle

Giant Soy Sauce Water Bottle

No, this isn’t a giant soy sauce bottle, although you can use it for that as well. It’s actually a water bottle inspired by those small, single-serving soy sauce bottles that they give you at most Japanese sushi places. It can hold up to 500 ml of your drink of choice and comes with a strap so you can guzzle soy sauce, er, water when you’re on the go.

If you’re bored, just fill it with coffee and take it with you to the office. That should be fun (and it should also ward off would-be freeloaders from drinking your stuff.)

‘Tiny Hands’ Gives You Creepily Small Hands–Well, Sort Of

Tiny Hands


No, there’s nothing wrong with that dude’s hands. You should be able to tell easily if you look closely, because they’re clearly made from plastic. What he actually has is a pair of Tiny Hands and it’s exactly what its name says it is. Molded from plastic, you can use these unusually small plastic human hands to pull pranks, scare the bejeezus out of people, and shoot some pretty gnarly photos.

There isn’t anything particularly funny about a person’s hands. Unless, of course, they’re about five times too small for their body. The set includes one right and one left miniature mitt so you can make a silly salute, give a hilarious high-five, and maybe even pop some bubbles on the Lawrence Welk show.

Tiny Hands are available for $8.99.

Your Water Bottle Looks Too Naked? Put Some Underwear On It!


Because, yeah, sure, why shouldn’t this exist? Right? Underwear for your water bottle? That’s, like, totally normal. And yes, it sure looks like it’s a real product that you can spend $2 to own. For that amount you apparently get 7 different styles, which is about 6 more styles than your average guy has.

We think it might be an attempt to keep your hand dry in the case of a cold bottle condensing water on its side. But still: underwear for your water bottle.

What a time to be alive!

What Your Office Chair Always Needed Was a Batman Cape


Look at that crappy office chair you’re sitting in right now. Just look at it. It’s… well, it’s just a chair, right? Haven’t you ever asked yourself “why isn’t this office chair a superhero chair?” You should have, friend, you should have. Because it turns out now it can be, thanks to the Batman Classic Chair Cape. This wonderful novelty accessory is being made by Entertainment Earth, and first sold at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon. They’re making 2,400 of the things, and if any are left after the show, they’ll sell them to any of you who pre-order one now. These capes are 24-inches long, and should fit just about any type of chair. And we imagine that if they’re successful enough, it’ll be just a matter of time until you find them in other superhero varieties. It’s a very reasonable $25.

Shoes With Light Up Soles


You don’t know you want shoes with light up soles until you want shoes with light up soles. It’s one of those things that only a very narrow demographic band will enjoy, like fans of electronic music and chemical “mood enhancers”, for instance. They’re a bit of a novelty item, sure, and you couldn’t just wear them anywhere, but in the right time and place, these are great. Better yet is the fact you’ll have to pay only $79 to get a pair, which isn’t all that bad considering the 8 hour runtime, and optional cycling colors.
