VOXART Buildable Voxel Art: Like Minecraft In Real Life
Because there can never be enough new ways to create, VOXART is a building toy that consists of 16 different colors of Clixel “tiles” that can be combined to form colored cubes. Each tile makes one side of a cube, so it takes six tiles to make a cube, then you use those cube shapes (or partial cubes) to make, well, whatever you want!

Bookie Cushion: A Whoopie Cushion Bookmark

Bookie Cushion: A Whoopie Cushion Bookmark
A perfect stocking stuffer or White Elephant gift, the Bookie Cushion from Fred is a small whoopie cushion designed to be squeezed between the pages of a book. Obviously, it’s most appropriate for books like Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind or Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury.

Mark Rober Builds World’s Longest Hot Wheels Track
Because records were made to be broken, Mark Rober recently constructed the world’s longest Hot Wheels track in his new CrunchLabs warehouse.

Build Your Own Wooden Tilt-A-Whirl Moving Music Box
Because who didn’t get into puzzles or model building during the pandemic (I got into miniature ships myself), the $55 ROKR Tilt-A-Whirl is a DIY music box wooden puzzle kit from the company’s Magic Amusement Park series.

Flexible Articulated 3D-Printed Fidget Slugs

Flexible Articulated 3D-Printed Fidget Slugs
Anxiety: we all experience it. And what better way to help alleviate that feeling than with a 3D-printed, articulated fidget slug? I can’t think of anything. Granted, I’m not trying to think of anything, but I have to save my brainpower for more important things like what’s for lunch.

Desktop Mars Zen Garden: Interplanetary Peace
Originally created as places for monks to meditate on Buddha’s teachings, Zen gardens have been miniaturized and available in desktop versions for quite some time now. Just not in interplanetary form, like this Mars Zen Garden available from Uncommon Goods.

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine
Because almost every mode of transportation is improved with more horsepower, inventor and YouTuber Joel Creates replaced the pathetically underpowered 12-volt motors of a children’s Star Wars Landspeeder toy with a small jet engine. And, I think I speak for every speed-lover here when I say, where was this when I was a kid?

James Webb Telescope Model Suggested on LEGO Ideas Website

James Webb Telescope Model Suggested on LEGO Ideas Website
Built by astronomer and LEGO maniac tonysmyuncle (that’s cool, Brent’s my uncle), this LEGO model of the James Webb Space Telescope is constructed as a replica of the one actually sent into space by NASA. It’s currently looking for support on the LEGO Ideas website to be considered for production by LEGO; it’s appropriately scaled to the size of minifigs, who I assume will use it to search for UFOs.

Harry Potter Wands That Shoot Actual Fireballs: Incendio!
Because housefires aren’t going to just start themselves, manufacturer Wejioin is selling these Harry Potter inspired (but by no means officially licensed) wands on Amazon (affiliate link) that actually shoot fireballs. To operate one, you just pack a small piece of flash paper in the business end of the wand, then push the button at its base to heat the coil inside, igniting the flash paper and causing it to shoot from the end like a fireball.
