AntWorks Habitat

AntWorks Habitat

An ant farm is one of those childhood experiences that I never had, Sea Monkeys of course, but no ants. Lucky for me I now live next to a farm who introduced ants into their crop to keep other pests away and many of them find their way into my house. For those of you who are not as lucky as me there is the AntWorks.

Based on a NASA experiment this habitat makes ants cool in a way they never could be. It’s nutritious, yet homey, gel will satisfy all your ants needs, food and shelter. It comes complete with a LED illuminator and comes in blue or red. Each habitat comes with a magnifying glass, an ant catching/tunnel starting tool and an instruction booklet.

Electronic Bubble Wrap Keychain – just when you thought FedEx was Santa

Electronic Bubble Wrap Keychain – just when you thought FedEx was Santa

If you, like me, have held on to the near-Christmas like event that getting something wrapped in bubble wrap is, well its just gotten that much better. Sure, the tactile feedback isn’t quite the same in an electronic version, but I have a feeling it will be equally pleasurable.

It’s also a bit of a stress reliever. Oh, and did I mention that you’ll have a new means of annoying those around you, but it will be right on your keychain? I love it.

If you're one that has a hard time saving those pennies this little bomb might help you out a bit. The bank isn't just in the shape of a time bomb, it is one, and if you don't pay up it explodes.

The Bog Monster to scare the piss out of your friends

The Bog Monster to scare the piss out of your friends

Although it might be a little late for most to run out to the stores and snag a few more Halloween decorations before Wednesday, you could however snag them on discount the day after. For yet another cheap laugh get yourself one of these Bog Monsters.

The Bog Monster suction cups under the seat and inside the lid. Just don't put one of these in the toilet during a drunken party, otherwise, you might notice the next day that your little monster smells a bit like urine.

Cardboy CMYK ink cartridges

Cardboy CMYK ink cartridges

Mark James made these Cardboy CMYK ink cartridges that appear to have legs, arms, and eyes. That’s because they aren’t really ink cartridges, they are just little figurines that look like it.

For the nerd that gets cubicle-sick. Not really, they are pretty cool looking though.

The Ghost Finder Camera

The Ghost Finder Camera

If you're looking for a bit of Halloween fun and a few pranks along the way, horribly juvenile ones of course. You'll likely need a few new props to start the season off, you might give this Ghost Finder Camera a whirl.

The SoundBall – for a bit of noisy fun

The SoundBall – for a bit of noisy fun

This is the absolute perfect gift to buy for someone else's kid. Preferably if you aren't around them that often. Not that the ball is overly loud, just that it constantly is making some kind of noise.

Check out the video to hear it. The noises are clever, but would get old after a while. Really it sounds a lot like an old Atari game. It works by using Bluetooth technology. It tells the computer whether the ball is being hit, thrown or spun via a motion sensor from within. Then it in turn tells the ball what noise to make.
