Even James Bond Would Carry These Detailed Elastic Band Guns

The human hand serves as a perfectly usable tool for firing elastic bands, but sniping your co-workers is just far more satisfying when you’ve got a trigger to squeeze. And because everything is better when it’s made of wood, these gorgeous toy guns from ElasticPrecision are hands-down the best way to unleash a fury of rubber bands on a target.


Who Would Ever Want To Dirty These Custom Adventure Time Hand Towels?

Briefly: Etsy seller SeamsGeeky has created a couple of amazingly adorable hand towels that Adventure Time fans will be more than proud to hang in their bathrooms. But after spending $US13 on either the BMO, Finn, or Jake versions, who would ever want to dry their hands on them and risk sullying these wonderful creations? [Etsy]


Now Etsy Has A Card Reader Too

Etsy just released a card reader. It works just like all of the other card readers out there, except it’s orange and only works with Etsy purchases. It is also sort of a brilliant thing for Etsy to do.


A Specimen Box Full Of Tiny Paper Aeroplanes Instead Of Bugs

It’s hard to understand the appeal of displaying the corpses of dead insects and other small creatures on pins in a specimen box, but tiny paper aeroplane versions of famous aircraft? That deserves to hang in the Louvre, or your home office as a second best scenario.


This Lego Mario Brothers Lamp Is The Geekiest Way To Spend $US2,200

Let’s say that you’ve got a spare two grand stuffed in a shoebox under your bed, and you want to put it towards something really useful. No, not paying off a credit card bill, or getting your car serviced — you want to blow that on a Mario Bros lamp made out of Lego.


Your Entire Family Can Fit On This Mega Hammock

There will never be another fight over who gets to lay in the hammock with this monstrosity strung up in your backyard. The Mega Hammock requires you to find at least four nearby trees (or cranes) for hanging, but when it’s up it looks like it can easily support a group of at least 10 loungers — plus a toddler or two. But due to weight restrictions, it maxes out at around three adults.


A Lamp That Looks Exactly Like Sneakers Tossed Over Power Lines

If you’re on the hunt for a truly unique lamp to accessorise your living room, Etsy is a far better place to start than IKEA. Because that’s the only place you’ll be able to buy this illuminating creation from Ricochet Studio that looks like a pair of shoes tossed over a power line.


Embossed Rolling Pins Let Bakers Sign Their Creations

Painters always sign their canvases, so why shouldn’t bakers — proud of their tasty treats — not sign their work as well? But since pens don’t work on dough, and Sharpies are probably an even worse idea, Etsy seller Zuzia Zuber will create a custom rolling pin for you, embossed with a repeating pattern of “made by (your name here).”


Toolbox Chess Sets Make You The Bobby Fisher Of Shop Class

Grabbing your toolbox and tackling a few repairs around the house can certainly teach you some new and useful skills. But if you really want to better yourself, and increase your brain power, you’ll reach for these lovely toolbox chess sets instead.


The Perfect Valentine's Day Card For Our Times

You haven’t made Valentine’s Day plans yet. That’s OK! Who needs ‘em? Manufactured holiday, singlehood empowerment, overpriced prix fixe menus. But if you must make a romantic gesture next month, let it be this card. It sums up modern relationships pretty much perfectly.
