Finger Sloth Ring Sure Seems To Make Some Kind Of Statement

Sloth-Rings-2

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.

Foster Your Child’s Talents, They Say

bib

This is the “Goo Period Vicent Van Bib.” It’s a bib for your baby, with a fancy painting frame drawn in the middle. The idea is that your little toddler is going to be a toddler, and he’ll spit, drool and wipe his hands all over it, and instead of it becoming the dirty laundry it should become, you’re going to call it art. Or something. How cute. We’d ‘awwww’ all over the place is babies were the kinds of things we’re into. But we’re not. Well… I shouldn’t speak for Hazel. I’m not. But we do both think that some of you out there will love this, and would probably like to know that it’ll cost you a whole $7 to own your own.

Eau de Zombie: Now You Can Smell Like the Living Dead

Zombie Perfume

Ever wondered what zombies smelled like? Since they’re basically dead and rotting humans that have been somehow brought back to life, I doubt they’ll smell like the roses you just picked from your garden. According to quirky fragrance maker Demeter, however, zombies smell like dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss, and earth–at least, the male ones, that is–and now they’re giving you the chance to smell like one with their latest perfume offering: Eau de Zombie.

The Breakfast Club: Now You Can Wear Your Bacon, and Eat It, Too!

Bacon and Egg Scarf

This isn’t the first time someone set out to turn everyone’s favorite breakfast food into something wearable, although this is the first time I’ve seen it done tastefully. Want to make your pasta yummier? Make your burger less bland? Turn that dud of a dish into an instant winner? Just add bacon. It’s a miracle food, if there ever was one, and now you can wear it around your neck.

This bacon scarf is different from the rest because it’s not just some bacon-printed fabric that’s been turned into a scarf. Rather, it’s a handfelted piece that’s got a bit more structure because of the material used. To complete your look, it even comes with a side of egg brooch. Mmm-hmm!

Would You Wear A Tiny Plant Around Your Neck?

We’re not sure what kind of person loves plants so darn much as to wear them around their neck, but we’re thinking at least one: whoever conceived of this product. That being said, the Wearable Planter seems like the kind of object that’s just quirky enough to interest at least a few of our readers, if only so you can wear it and have people go “wtf is that on your neck?” at you. It’s 3D printed in acrylic and hand finished for smoothness, and costs all of $37. There are instructions on how to get your plant in there, but it doesn’t come with one.

World’s Most Useless Machine, Now More Advanced

About three years ago, the world’s Most Useless Machine was introduced to the world. You can see a video of it here. It was a simple box with a switch that, when flipped, would activate a mechanism whose only purpose was to, well, flip the switch right back to how it was in the first place. Genius. So now this same principle has been pumped up on steroids, and a machine of great ingenuity created, one whose unbridled ingenuity is only rivalled by its uselessness. Meet the Useless Machine Advanced Edition. Using a broken Canon 850i printer, the machine features not one, but eight such switches with an internal switch-flipping mechanism of eerie efficiency.

It’s a fairly complex DIY build, but all the instructions and hardware requirements are listed at the link below.

Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel

Plants… Better keep those away from us. Caring for anything that’s unable to come and nag for its food is a recipe for disaster round these parts. Yet, we’re still suckers for good design, and the Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel is just the kind of thing we’re sure could brighten someone’s day right up. It’s a self-watering flowerpot with a water container within, which then supplies it to the soil through a cord inside the pot.

Both the squirrel and the plant are dependent on your love and care. And, when you pour water through the knothole, the tiny squirrel will appear in its peephole and will show that the plant has enough water. As the water level decreases, you will see less and less of the tiny squirrel. If you only see its big, round eyes, then the squirrel and plant are awfully thirsty and it´s high time to water again.

It’s roughly $35 (€26).

Cookie Cutters Make Parts For Delicious 3D Dinosaurs

A cookie cutter is nothing new, but a cookie cutter that makes the various parts that go into a 3D dinosaur? Sign us up!

Cookie cutters in the shape of dinosaur body parts. Cut out cookie dough, bake in the oven, then slot the cookies together to make edible dinosaurs that will stand up your plate. Create the tastiest treats this side of the Jurassic period… then eat them into extinction. Each pack includes cutters for the body parts required to bake a whole dinosaur, with 4 to collect (Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus and T-Rex)

Each pack is £7.50 or about $12. You can’t choose which one you get but rather purchase a random one, which does sort of suck if you’re really keen on buying all four. But really, we don’t know that anyone will mind so much.
