Most of us know and love Amazon for its practicality. The online retailer makes our lives a heck of a lot easier by offering cleaning supplies, clothes and more at low prices with affordable shipping. But because nearly anyone can list nearly anything on the website, Amazon is home to everything under the sun, including some pretty weird stuff.
From toys to wholly unnecessary gardening supplies, we are willing to bet you’ve found a wacky product or two while browsing Amazon. As we spend a lot of time finding awesome things on Amazon to tell our readers about, we’ve seen our fair share of products that leave us scratching our heads. Some of them are secretly brilliant. Some are wonderfully goofy, and some just make us laugh out loud.
So, here are the weirdest things we’ve found on Amazon this week. They include a freaky pillowcase, an ingenious squirrel feeder and a pretty amazing Bluetooth keyboard. Take a look through the list and order your favorite, or not. We won’t hold it against you either way.
1. URSKYTOUS Nicolas Cage Sequin Pillow Case
A pillowcase with Nicolas Cage’s face on it, need we say more? This URSKYTOUS Reversible Nicolas Cage Pillowcase is exactly what it advertises. What makes it even better is the fact the Nicolas Cage face is made from sequins, meaning all you have to do is run your fingers across it to hide the face and display the ruby red cover underneath. Simply turn the sequins back over to reveal Cage’s handsome face. The backside of the pillow sports a suede material along with a hidden zipper closure.
2. Archie McPhee Unicorn Head Squirrel Feeder
If you’ve ever wondered what a squirrel would look like with a unicorn’s head, the Archie McPhee Unicorn Head Squirrel Feeder is an easy way to find out. Don’t worry, it doesn’t involve any hideous surgery or animal abuse. The unicorn-shaped head feeder simply hangs in your garden and provides an easy feeding station for your local squirrel population. The ingenious part of this device is that to feed from the sturdy vinyl feeder, the squirrels have to place their head inside to get to the nuts, seeds, corn or other feed located in the snout. This would definitely make a great gift for your grandmother who likes to feed the squirrels.
3. Giant Gummy Bear
If candy is your thing, this Giant Gummy Bear will feel like your dreams are coming true. At approximately five pounds in weight and the equivalent of around 1,400 regular-sized gummy bears, this cherry-flavored delight makes an ideal replacement for your Thanksgiving turkey, any Sunday carving or a child’s birthday cake. The bear is also gluten free, made in the USA and about the size of a football.
4. Outline Montreal Reactive LED Mask
The Outline Montreal Reactive LED Mask will give you a wacky and unique look at any party or dress up occasion. It sports a whole host of attractive colors and shapes and cannot help but put a smile on the face of onlookers. And there’s more to the mask than just the appealing design. Using the built-in rechargeable Mask Modulator™, the mask becomes reactive to sound via the LEDs in the face for a truly mesmerizing glow. This feature is particularly ideal for nightclubs, festivals or other music-filled events.
5. Tap Strap Wireless Keyboard & Mouse
It’s not always possible to take your keyboard with you. As a larger and somewhat clunky device, always having a keyboard just isn’t convenient. However, with the Tap Strap Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard & Mouse , you’ll be able to stay in control anywhere, even as you walk, talk and move around. TAP fits onto your hand like conjoined rings. Using a system comparable to playing the piano, you’ll be able to write on-the-go on any of your Bluetooth or USB connected devices. The device is also available in two different sizes, which means all hand sizes are catered for.
