1. Acrobatic clothespins
The figures on these clothespins add a bit of fun to anything you want to hang up. You can use them for clothes, or if you want them to be more visible, to hold papers or photos.
2. Laboratory organizer
These test tubes can hold just about anything, like hard-to-organize office supplies (which are included). They’d also be perfect for holding spices in the kitchen. You could even get really experimental and try growing tiny plants and herbs in them.
3. Melting clock
This desk clock is a nod to the Dali masterpiece, and in true Dali fashion, it makes a unique addition to any desk or shelf. And yes, it actually tells time despite its floppy appearance. All it takes is one AA battery.
4. Moon nightlight
This little guy will help you bring the moonlight inside with you. This light, designed to look just like our favorite satellite, provides a soft glow that helps you see, but won’t keep you awake.
5. Owl-shaped tape dispenser
This two-roll tape dispenser will help you cut down on tape replacement. Most importantly of all, it sports an adorable bug-eyed owl who will help cheer you up on long days stuck in the cubicle.
6. The cyclist’s pizza cutter
Why settle for a boring pizza cutter when you can use this clever bicycle? The double wheels make slicing up your favorite Friday dinner much easier.
7. Egg-separating pig
This rubber pig, officially called the “Yolkpig,” sucks up egg yolks while leaving the egg whites behind. The yolk can be deposited elsewhere by squeezing it out of the piggy’s nose.
8. Pirate corkscrew
Pirates are no strangers to booze, so it makes sense that this one is on board (ha!) to help you open your bottles. His arms double as a foil-cutting knife and a lever, respectively. His head can pop open beer bottles, and his leg serves as the corkscrew. Just don’t get in a fight with him.
9. Robot nutcrackers
The soldier look is so 19th century. Get with the times when it comes to nut consumption with these adorable robots. The crank lowers the screw inside and cracks the nutshell. Even though they’re robots, these guys are made of wood. It’s a modern take on a classic tool.
10. Toothpick whale
The splash is actually a collection of plastic toothpicks, all conveniently stored in the nasal cavity of this whale. Okay, forget we phrased it like that. This precious ceramic whale contains 32 reusable picks.
11. Oliver the elephant
Yes, that’s his name. This olive dish comes with a clever addition, since his trunk doubles as a pit receptacle, hiding them out of sight until cleaning time. They can be emptied by popping out the rubber stopper in the bottom.
This watering can attachment can be fitted to just about any screw-top beverage bottle (water, soda, etc.). It provides a gentle sprinkle of water, perfect for plants. The multiple streams ensure even distribution.
13. Nessie ladle
Okay, we know we’ve featured this before, but come on. This thing is so cute, and thanks to its little feet, you never have to worry about where to rest it while you make sauces and soups. Her little head will poke out of the soup just like the real-life version does in Loch Ness. (Because she’s 100% a real thing.)
