If you've ever tried to create a set of holes through more than two pieces of paper using a hole punch, you realise how terribly designed those contraptions really are. But instead of re-engineering one from the ground up to work better, the folks at Toysmith found another way to make a hole punch more user-friendly with the addition of a padded punching bag on top.
Instead of pressing down with all of your weight (and your fingers crossed) to punch a couple of holes in a stack of paper, you can slam your fists down on this aptly-named Hole Punch to deliver the piercing blow. For $US10 it's also a great way to relieve some stress at the office, and when it comes to making confetti, kids will absolutely love wailing on this thing for hours at a time. [Toysmith]
