Stationery Crustaceans: You’ve Got Crabs

 |  |  |  |

Every desktop could use a little help to keep organized. You could go with a traditional pencil caddy or you could go ahead and get yourself a case of crabs. Stationery Crustaceans are little plastic crabs that are designed to hold small objects in their mighty pincers.

Designed by Japanese artist Ahnitol, the crabs are available over on Etsy’s CrabCakes Crafts for $8.99 each, or $29.49 for a set of four. These pint-sized crabs can hold pens, pencils, business cards,  or even knives in their claws. They measure about 2″ x 1″ and come in red, blue, green, or purple.

If you’ve ever watched The Deadliest Catch, you know that’s way too small. They’re obviously females or juveniles and they’re throwing them back. Actually, I’d like an Alaskan King crab version that I could use to hold my 75″ TV set with. Sadly, I just remembered I have a shellfish allergy and I probably shouldn’t even be looking at these pictures.
