funny products: October 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg We've previously seen children's drawings turned into amazing artworks -- now they are being turned into cool toys.

The guys over at Child's Own Studio will take a drawing your child has done (or maybe you) and use it as a blueprint for a stuffed toy.

They will even use materials you provide yourself -- maybe a baby-grow or a former favourite blanket -- to make the distinctive and unique toy.

However, there is bad news, because the service has proven so popular Wandy Tsao says they are not taking any more orders this year. So back to the drawing board for Christmas… though not to draw a toy.

275x250.jpg A designer scent has been created to represent the smells of Burton-on-Trent -- yes the town famous for Marmite and beer.

Businesswoman and perfumer Victoria Brookes says she created the perfumes (which really should have been called Burton-on-Scent) because the town is famed for its smells.

The male and female scents will go on sale for £36.50 in the run up to Christmas and the women's version is said to encapsulate the smells of Marmite and the countryside.

The men's fragrance meanwhile, is said to include leather, forests, and beer… so we're not sure it will make you irresistible to the opposite sex.

275x250.jpg There is no denying that facial hair can help you keep warm in the winter. And while not everyone can grow a full bushy beard… they could buy this hat.

The Beardo is a Canadian-designed beanie which has become an instant fashion hit since it went on sale online -- because it includes an instant beard.

Makers say the hat-beard-combo is "always guaranteed to be full, perfectly coiffed, and super soft" and that you don't have to worry about itching or scratching.

While the acrylic yarn facial fuzz is adjustable and can fit any face, it can also be stowed away in the hat for the occasions a knitted beard might not be appropriate… though we can't imagine when that would be.

An enormous avocado which grows to 10 times of standard varieties is set to  hit UK supermarket shelves… which is good news for fans of guacamole.

The jumbo avocado, of the ‘Linda’ variety, weighs up to 1.5kg which is more that the weight of two international Rugby balls!

A spokesperson for Waitrose, who will sell the monster, say the fruit stays on trees in Peru’s Chincha valley for up to one year to achieve its exceptional size.

The huge avocado, which sells for £4.99 is big enough to make a dish of guacamole or retro avocado and prawn starters to serve dinner party guests. 


A vending machine which prepares and cooks pizzas in under two minutes could soon be launched on the streets of New York.

The automated Pizzametry pizzeria not only delivers freshly baked pizza (not microwaved) in a matter of minutes, but diners can also watch it being cooked.

Once a user has selected the type of pizza they want, they will see the dough flattened into a base and then the tomato sauce, cheese and toppings added before it's sent to the oven.

Inventor Puzant Khatchadourian says each machine can hold the ingredients required to produce 150 pizzas and that the eight-inch pizzas are delivered in a box with a disposable pizza cutter.
