Summer is coming, and you know what that means – I guess the opposite of whatever they meant in Game of Thrones. And what better way to enjoy the warm weather than with a massive 32′ x 16′ x 4’4″ above-ground pool?
How do you get your kids to eat their eggs? Simple — scramble them. Kids love scrambled eggs. Or is that me? More of a hard-boiled fan? Enter the EGG-A-MATIC t-rex skull egg mold (affiliate link) from Fred.
Crafted by Martin’s Chocolatier of the UK, this $20 Chocolate Planets gift set (affiliate link) includes nine different chocolate truffles, each representing a planet in our solar system, plus the Sun. Personally, I would have forgone the Sun and included Pluto instead, but they surprisingly didn’t ask my opinion before bringing the product to market.
What better way to let everybody know who rules the pool than with a Pool Punisher (affiliate link), an inflatable pool float that looks like a tank and has an integrated pump-style water cannon that can shoot up to 50-feet.
Cleverly shaped like the sort of closed-circuit surveillance camera you might see on the side of a building, Instructables user JoopB1 has outlined step-by-step instructions for how to build your own fake security camera birdhouse out of scrap wood (in this case leftover 12mm plywood, but the dimensions can be adjusted for almost any thickness plywood).
Because one can never have too much whimsy, Taiwanese carpenter and automata maker Chi-Chun Yin constructed the ‘Ark III’, a wooden submarine automata crewed by a bunch of different animals. With a turn of a crank (cleverly doubling as the sub’s propeller), the entire crew is brought to life.
Remember the first time you saw Jaws? How long did it take before you felt safe going back to the beach? Because I saw it thirty years ago and still haven’t been back.

Currently on display at the Nina Mall in Hong Kong, China, what you’re about to witness is the construction of the Guinness World Record holder for the largest Rubik’s Cube, measuring a very respectable 2.503 m x 2.505 m x 2.502 m – or about 27 square feet.

Tacos: you need something to hold them upright so none of those delicious ingredients spill out. Enter the $15 TacoCat taco holder (affiliate link), an upside-down cat that prevents your taco from falling apart while at rest.
Fingers: after a long day of typing they just want to let loose. And what better way to let your digits go wild for a bit than with some rhythm-based finger dancing with this $43 Finger Dance Machine available from Firebox?
Because there’s a market for absolutely everything, this is a good luck Maneki-neko (“beckoning cat”) statue with a giant muscle arm. Obviously, if the luck it brings is directly proportional to the protein shakes the cat has had, you’re in for a metric ton of good luck.
Because Star Wars merchandise makes money hand over Mandalorian fist, Hasbro is releasing an $80 Galactic Snackin’ Grogu (affiliate link) this year in time for Christmas.
