Pete Magnetic Key Holder

I have talked about how unpleasant it is to keep your whole family waiting for you in front of the house just because you can’t find your keys. It’s frustrating and annoying and every time you swear you will find the perfect place where to put the keys and to know exactly where to find them, but you never do. Any way, some very practical people might have had the same problem and wanted to solve it, so they designed Pete – the magnetic key holder.

This Pete guy is a little coloured plastic man that has some strong magnets inside. You can place it on the fridge or on any metal surface and it will be able to hold up to thirty keys at a time. It looks funny and it is useful at the same time and you can use it for storing some other metallic things like a pen or a screwdriver or a bottle opener. You don’t need to drill holes in your wall and you can easily move it any place you want to. And all for just £7.95. It is now available in red and blue and you can order it online.

Wooden Reading Rest

Ever since the technology field has developed so fast and so much many people had given up reading normal books and they replaced the old fashioned paper books by e-books that can be read on sophisticated electronic devices. But there are still many people who like holding a book in their hands and enjoying the action through their imagination. Any way, sometimes when these passionate readers stay in bed and keep reading for many hours their hands and arms get tired and they would love to have someone or something hold the book for them. Don’t laugh – there are some people who took it very seriously and designed this wooden reading rest.

Eye Clock for the Kids Room

All things that you want to use in the kids room must be funny, as they will reject them otherwise. So you’d better take the kids with you when shopping for their room or you may have the unpleasant surprise to have your surprise gift thrown out of the door because they just don’t like it. And a good idea for a clock for the kids room is this funny Eye clock that shows time in a very peculiar way that makes you laugh. I mean this clock has two eyes displayed but, just like in the case of chameleons, each eye moves in a different way and in a different direction.

Heat Changing Tardis Mug

You know that if you warm up your coffee in the microwave oven only the liquid inside gets hot while the ceramic cup or mug remains the same temperature. Well, I found that out the hard way when I did not know my husband already heated my cup of tea , so I drank a mouthful of hot liquid, thinking it was perfectly safe and cold. Yes, I know – it would have been better if I had been warned, but I hadn’t. But now, if you use this ingenious Heat changing Tardis mug you will know in an instant if the coffee or tea inside is hot or cold. That is because the mug changes depending on the temperature.
