Don’t Need It, But Want It: Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

 

If you take your canine best friend everywhere and do everything with him–including swim–then it’s time to get him a life vest of his own, just in case. What better one than this Shark Fin life jacket that keeps him afloat while making him look like the most adorable doggy that ever lived?

As the name implies, the life jacket has a little shark’s fin at the back, which you can use to help pull your dog out of the water if you need to. The life jacket keeps your dog afloat, whether or not he’s doing the doggie paddle or not. With the life jacket on, you don’t have to worry about him going under, although you should keep a close eye on him while he’s in the water with you.

The Shark Fin life jacket costs $39.98.

Want This: Star Wars Millennium Falcon Windshield Sun Shade

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Windshield Sun Shade

 

You might not have the best or most expensive car in the parking lot, but you’ll have the entire gang from Star Wars and that should be more than enough to make others green with envy. Well, maybe not envy but it’ll certainly turn heads for sure.

The Star Wars Millennium Falcon Windshield Sun Shade puts Han Solo behind the wheel, with Chewbacca sitting beside him casually as if they did nothing but drive and ride cars all day. The sun shade is collapsible, so it’s easy to fold up and store when it’s not in use. It’s available from Think Geek for $19.99.

Reading Is Cool: Cassette Tape Bookmarks

Cassette Tape Bookmark

Bookmarks don’t get any more adorable than these. The Cassette Tape bookmarks are inspired by their namesake, which used to be all the rage before CDs and MP3s came along. People don’t make mixed tapes anymore; they’re simply mixes now. People don’t even read physical books as much as before, since e-readers have taken center stage.

If you’re one of the few (or shall I say many?) who prefer flipping through actual pages instead of swiping through virtual ones, then what can be a more appropriate bookmark than this? It’s got a vintage feel and you have to admit, it looks awesome.Continue Reading

Chocolate Toothpaste: Have Dessert, Brush, and Have Dessert Again

Theodent Chocolate Toothpaste

 

Remember how you wished that chocolate-flavored toothpaste existed back when you were still a kid? Well, you might have grown several feet since then but now Theodent has made that wish come true with their new line of fluoride-free, chocolate-flavored toothpaste. This probably isn’t the first time someone decided to make toothpaste that made it seem like you were brushing chocolate all over your teeth, but Theodent is different in the sense that the chocolate flavor isn’t there just for novelty’s sake.

Rather, it’s there because of Theodent’s toothpaste formulation that contains a patented substance obtained from the cacao plant that gives it its distinctive chocolatey flavor. It’s called rennou, and it’s non-toxic and safe-to-ingest (although you probably shouldn’t squeeze it and eat it right out of the tube), so you won’t have to worry about kids accidentally ingesting it while brushing.

Theodent Classic is sold at $10, while the extra-strength variant Theodent 300 is priced at a whopping $100.

The Lean, Mean Weaponized Mecha Machine Smartphone Holder

Mecha Smartphone Holder

Transform your smartphone into the ultimate fighting machine–well, sort of–with the Mecha Machine Smartphone Holder. As the name implies, it’s a contraption that’s designed to hold your phone in the most menacing way possible. The holder might look like it was put together using random screws, hinges, and other spare gear that you can find in a typical tool shed, but we’re willing to bet that making it called for a bit of skill and loads of creativity.

A variety of other holders are available on MechWorld‘s Etsy shop. He’s also got some pretty nifty-looking robot toys and Transformers figures on display.

They Don’t Stand a Chance: Pow! Splat! Fly Swatters

Pow Splat Fly Swatter

 

You can go for one of those electric fly swatters to zap those pesky flies and mosquitoes out of your face and into kingdom come–or you can go for these comic-inspired Pow! and Splat! fly swatters. Granted, it’s easier to get that insect, specially the fast flyers, with the tennis racket-shaped electric swatters. But if you’re out of juice and really need to get that thing out of the air, then this will have to do.

The expressions featured on the bubbles are pretty apt for their purpose too: Pow! to hit that bug in order to make it go Splat! Yowza!

The fly swatters are available online for $10.

Endless Calendar Goes On and On and On

Endless Calendar

Endless Calendar1

 

The Endless Calendar is a modular calendar of sorts that you can put on display and use and re-use for the months, years, and decades to come. It’s relatively simple, but it gets the job done. Each of the calendar’s components are printed by hand using wood types, which are then positioned and stored in a display unit that sort of looks like a napkin holder.

It won’t alert you to any meetings or special events, but it’ll let you know the date and what day of the week it is, and that should be more than enough for most people. The best part? No need to replace your calendar on a yearly basis anymore, obviously.

The Endless Calendar is available for $42.

Functional Fashion: Flask Bracelet

Flask Bracelet

 

 

It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. If you can’t be bothered to tote a water bottle in your bag at all times, then what about wearing one around your wrist? The Flask Bracelet was designed with women in mind, but brave dudes can sport one if they don’t mind the inevitable teasing that’ll come from colleagues who’ll wonder why in the world they’re sporting this huge bangle on their wrists.

Designed by Cynthia Rowley, the Flask Bracelet is exactly what it’s name says it is: it’s a bracelet that doubles as a flask and vice versa. It can hold up to 3oz of your beverage of choice, be it water, juice, or beer. Granted, it’ll probably give you sore wrists at the end of the day if you fill it up to full capacity. Is the added convenience worth the pain? You decide.

The Flask Bracelet is available online for $225.

Every Weight Watcher’s Dream: Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top

Caffeine Slimming Top

 

Breaking up is hard to do, but losing weight is even harder. At least, it is, for the people who have tried but constantly failed. It’s probably this group of people that the makers of this Caffeine-Infused Slimming Tank Top are targeting. As the name implies, this top apparently has slimming properties as it’s infused with green coffee and brown algae that’ll work on stimulating your body’s metabolism. That’s because the micronized caffeine stimulates lipolysis, which is the natural breakdown of stored fats, while the brown algae moisturizes the skin.

It also cheats because the top comes in black, and we all know black gives the illusion of a slimmer figure. The manufacturer claims that the top can help trim its wearer’s hips by up to 1 inch and thighs by up to 11/4 of an inch if it’s worth for eight hours a day for 21 straight days. Sounds too good to be true, I’ll give it that, but who knows? It could actually work.

The Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top retails for $85.
