Cute Overload 2009 Calendar

Cute Overload 2009 Calendar

The first sites we look at each morning - before mySimon, even - are dailypuppy.com and cuteoverload.com. The latter is a "nonstop parade of utter cuteness," which Time magazine calls its "#1 mood lifter." We're giving our grandmothers (who still aren't online) the 2009 Cute Overload calendar, which is loaded with pages of wiggly nosed bunny rabbits, fuzzy chicks, snuggly squirrels, roly-poly hamsters, baby pandas, the occasional hedgehog, and, of... more

iRiver Mplayer Mickey Mouse MP3 Player

iRiver Mplayer Mickey Mouse MP3 Player

In the So Cute We Can't Stand It department, check out this tiny Mickey Mouse-shaped MP3 player. The size of a marble, the iRiver Mplayer is a 1GB music player that comes with headphones on a lanyard, so you can wear the player as a pendant. Control the volume with Mickey's left ear, skip tracks with his right ear, and twist both ears at the same time to go into shuffle mode. There's no... more

Darth Vader Toaster

Darth Vader Toaster

How do you get a Star Wars nerd to eat breakfast? Give him a loaf of bread and this Darth Vader toaster. It won't be available until January, but you can preorder it now. There's not much to say about it except that it burns an image of Darth Vader onto every slice, doesn't require "Force" power to operate, and costs twice as much as a toaster should cost. But Mr. Lucas has bills... more

Mustache Key Holder

Mustache Key Holder

As much as we love Lech Walesa and Magnum, P.I., we're not fans of mustaches on actual people. But the mustache as design element - we love it. From pendants to pint glasses to stuffed animals, the mustache is popping up everywhere, including Target. This mustache key holder is a great place to, um, stash your keys, dog leashes, jewelry, or anything else you want to hang on... more

Pat the Husband Book

Pat the Husband Book

If you grew up with Pat the Bunny (or read it to your kids), you'll appreciate this new parody book called Pat the Husband. The book is just as interactive as the classic: You can remove the Velcro pants from the husband and put them on the wife, pull a tab to make the husband nod his head in agreement, and more. Wrap this one up with the Porn for Women 2009... more

Clever Underpants for Clever Guys

Clever Underpants for Clever Guys

Welcome to the latest episode of New Adventures in Men's Underwear. In case you haven't been paying attention, women's underwear has kinda peaked with thongs and push-up bras; there isn't much left to do that hasn't already been done. Men's underwear, however, is a different story. For years it was all about white briefs and boxers. Then came solid colors! stripes! boxer briefs! Now it's all about graphics. On the outside you may be Regular... more

The Dreamworks hit Kung Fu Panda is now available on DVD, and is sure to turn up in many a Christmas stocking this year. The movie stars Jack Black as Po, an enthusiastic but clumsy panda whose dream is to become a Kung Fu master.

Bakugan!

Bakugan!

What's hot for kids this holiday season and doesn't cost much money? One word: Bakugan (pronounced "bah-koo-gahn"). Bakugan is an anime series on the Cartoon Network, and the toys are the hottest things since Pokemon. Our friends' 9 year-old son and 6 year-old daughter are obsessed with them. Each toy is the size of a golf ball or large marble when closed. Inside is a magnet, so when you touch the Bakugan to metal,... more

Obama Shirts by Obey

Obama Shirts by Obey

Now that the election is over, something tells us there will still be strong demand for Obama apparel. You've probably seen this image of Barack Obama done by Shepard Fairey, the guy behind "Obey" and "Andre the Giant has a posse." It's available on tshirts for men and women in several different colors.

Hanky Panky "Fancy Pants"

Hanky Panky "Fancy Pants"

Fancy pants, indeed! ("Fancy pants" sounds a bit nicer than "naughty knickers," right?) Some of Hanky Panky's latest sexy lingerie items have a keyhole opening in the back and a little pink bow. We're guessing that bow might ruin the line of a clingy jersey dress, but she'll be able to conceal - or reveal - it nicely under jeans. We like about Hanky Panky lingerie because it's (relatively) affordable and was designed... more

Hue Tights

Hue Tights

We used to swear by DKNY tights. They used to last for years. Until recently. Maybe it's us; maybe it's the quality control at DKNY. So we went to Target to get tights. But the Target tights had so much lycra in them that our legs looked shiny. Black tights are not supposed to reflect that much light. So then we picked up some Hue tights. More expensive than Target, cheaper than DKNY, and... more

Sarah Palin 2009 Calendar

Sarah Palin 2009 Calendar

We learned about this 2009 Sarah Palin calendar in this Wall Street Journal article. The calendar features 50 never-before-seen photographs of Palin (as governor and VP candidate) and her family. The photographer, Judy Patrick, a Palin friend and former Vice Mayor of Wasilla, admits to making the calendar because she needs money for a down payment on a condo in Anchorage. So buy the calendar if you want the photos, but keep... more

High School Musical 3: Senior Year Soundtrack

High School Musical 3: Senior Year Soundtrack

High School Musical 3: Senior Year - which conveniently reduces to "HSM3" for texting! - comes out Friday, but you can get the HSM3 soundtrack right now, so you can rehearse the songs and then annoy everyone else in the theater. The soundtrack has all new music by the original songwriters and performances by the original cast, and it comes with a ring tone, fold-out poster, and "unlock more rock" content. We're not entirely... more

Each set includes 4 painted metal napkin rings. Choose white or black. (Pity they didn't also make red ones.) More napkin rings. More fun housewares by notNeutral.

Flying Squirrel Plush Toy

Flying Squirrel Plush Toy

Last week, our coworkers' parents (both of whom are reserved, academic types) were awakened at 4am by a flying squirrel in their bedroom. The mental image of them trying to rid their house of a flying squirrel had us laughing all day. (They eventually trapped it in a bathroom and had someone come rescue it.) So, for Christmas, our coworker is giving her parents this flying squirrel plush toy. It just arrived today. It's... more

Come Back with a Warrant Doormat

Come Back with a Warrant Doormat

If you liked that "Oh No! Not You Again" doormat, you'll probably get a kick out of this one, which reads "Come back with a warrant." It'll crack up your guests and make the cops wonder what you're hiding inside. The mat measures 18" x 27" and can be used inside or outdoors. $17.99 from Target online (not in stores).
