Because who hasn’t dreamed of sitting on a chair made of stuffed animals, AP Collection is selling a line of seating upholstered in numerous stuffed animals. There are monkeys, chameleons, dogs, panda bears, and woodland creatures – you name it!
Presumably using a healthy dose of The Force, filmmaker Glen Vivaris of the YouTube channel Glen Makes crafted this Star Wars-inspired workbench from an old IKEA desk. Most impressive! For reference, I turned my old IKEA desk into kindling, which I then used to light the sofa at my last bonfire party.
Who hasn’t dreamed of resting their rear on some soft green sprouts while they go about their bathroom business? Good news! YouTuber Ali Spagnola created the Sprouthouse: a toilet completely covered in chia seedlings. As far as good ideas go, I think we can all agree this one is Nobel Prize-worthy.
Because dream it, and, with enough funding, you can achieve it, the gang at the Hacksmith channel on YouTube went and constructed a massive 2-ton version of Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir. Admittedly, that is probably the largest Thor’s hammer I have ever seen.
The Love In Bloom porcelain flower vase is shaped like a realistic human heart, complete with ventricles, atria, and arteries. Made by Seletti and available on Amazon (affiliate link), the heart measures approximately 4″ x 7″ x 10″, making it bigger than mine, and significantly larger than the Grinch’s.
To promote the release of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8th, Microsoft is giving one lucky winner a custom Xbox Series X that looks like Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, complete with handle and everything.
Kopi Luwak coffee is made from beans that have passed through the digestive system of the Asian palm civet and been pooped out, where they’re collected to make the world’s most expensive coffee. And now you can own dice made with the beans that once briefly passed through a small mammal’s butt!
Because a pleasant night’s sleep void of nightmares is overrated, model builder and YouTuber North of the Border went and crafted this ‘realistic’ LEGO minifig, complete with a terrifying face and unholy finger and toenails. I think it goes without saying, but my wife is going to be annoyed that I insist on sleeping with the lights on tonight.
Skulls: I find them fascinating. They’re a reminder of our own mortality, and my wife also likes to remind me mine is unusually thicker than others. Whatever that means! Crafted by Etsy shop G7T6 Design, these Human Skull Eyewear Stands are hand-cast and painted to provide a unique way to store and display your eyewear with a serious memento mori (Latin: remember that you must die) vibe.
Crafted by software engineer and Instructables user jnthas, this Super Mario Bros. animated LED clock features Mario jumping up to hit a question block to change the displayed time. How clever is that? Very clever – the answer is very clever.
Because what better way to raise a future doctor (or dissuade your child from becoming a future doctor) than with a coloring book full of infectious diseases, The Infectious Disease Coloring Book (affiliate link) from Nicholas Wright is advertised as “a gruesome coloring therapy adventure.”
Because dream it, and you can achieve it (even if that dream takes way too much time that could probably be better spent doing something else entirely), YouTuber Peter Knetter deconstructed a GameBoy Advance SP to remove the hardware, then built a custom case INCLUDING CONTROLS entirely out of cardboard, then put the hardware inside to create a functional cardboard GameBoy Advance SP.
Because whimsy comes in all shapes and sizes, including the shape and size of a tissue box, Japanese artist Michiru crafted this one that makes tissues appear as if they’re icebergs. Clever! As far as design goes, I think this might even be more clever than the Godzilla head tissue box, which, prior to seeing this one, I assumed couldn’t be beaten.
Van Gogh’s The Starry Night: I remember the first time I saw it at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. I was the only one in the room at the time, and it was surreal: just me and one of the most famous paintings in the world.
Inspired by the classic ‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ wise-monkey sculptures, Regal Robot has reimagined the maxim with Jabba The Hutt’s Kowakian Monkey-Lizard Salacious B. Crumb sitting in for the monkeys. Just looking at him, I can practically hear him cackling at some unfortunate alien dropped into Jabba’s Rancor pit.
