Foot Operated Toilet Piano for Crappy Concertos
Because why shouldn’t I add a bit of piano accompaniment to the natural percussion I produce on the toilet, FireBox is selling this $18 Toilet Piano.

This Giant Plush Baby Yoda Is Huggable and Sittable
Grogu (aka Baby Yoda, The Child) was the breakaway star of The Mandalorian. Everybody loves him, and I’m sure Disney is quite happy with their little alien investment, particularly in the merchandising department, where I suspect executives are using $100 bills to light cigars even as you read this.

The Stuffed Pancake Maker: Breakfast Just Got a Whole Lot Batter

Chia-Saurus Rex: Grow Your Own Dinosaur
You can never own too many Chia Pets – just ask my aunt. I’m pretty sure she owns every single one ever made. Granted most of the plants have long since died and they’re all just bald terracotta figurines now, but that doesn’t stop her from proudly displaying them all.

Cactus Bookcase: Prick a Book, Any Book

Cactus Bookcase: Prick a Book, Any Book
Reading: it’s fundamental. Cactuses? Not so much, unless maybe you’re a desert. But combining these two unlikely companions is the Babyletto Cactus Bookcase from West Elm. It’s a bookcase that looks like cactus. Obviously, if you don’t fill the entire thing with western novels about cowboys, you’ve done it all wrong.

US Army Extreme Cold Weather Face Masks: A Little Bit on the Creepy Side
Designed for use in the coldest weather conditions, these United States Government Issue extreme cold weather face masks are the same ones worn by the US Army during operations in frigid climates.

Have Your Own Nightmare Before Christmas with this Cthulhu Ornament
It’s that time of year. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. It’s time to set up the Christmas tree, string the lights, and hang the ornaments. But if you’re tired of all the jolly and festive holiday traditions, maybe you need to go with something a little darker for your decorations this year.
