The £7 salts - sold by Hoxton Street Monster Supplies - is billed as coming from tears of sorrow, tears shed while sneezing, tears shed while chopping onions, tears of laughter, and tears of anger.

Each salt is said to distinctly different flavour and could certainly add an interesting element to your next dinner party.

A spokesperson said: "Salt Made From Tears combines centuries-old craft with the freshest human tears which are gently boiled, released into shallow crystallisation tanks, then harvested by hand and finally rinsed in brine.

With less than 70 days to go until the beginning of the games LEGO are bringing new meaning to the phrase 'starting blocks' with the yellow boxer, swimmer, relay runner and judo fighter.

There's also a tennis player, gymnast, weightlifter, horseback rider and archer in the collectible range which will only be available in the UK.

A spokesperson for LEGO said: "The Team GB LEGO Minifigures spark the sporting imagination, so you can stage your very own Games. There are exclusive Team GB LEGO Minifigures in the line-up."


An industrial designer has created a portable swing which can be deployed quickly and easily apparently turning any surrounding into a playground.


Kevin Shay from San Francisco says he came up with the idea when trying to think of something which was fun and prompted interaction between an object and the user.

His resulting UpSwing is a canvas and leather swing which can be installed on trees, lampposts or anything you can throw it over.

Shay says the the best place he has used the UpSwing is in the middle of Valencia street during Cinco de Mayo. "Seeing people's faces turn from confused to genuine excitement as they see the swing unfold is truly satisfying," he said.

A range of designer pet beds has gone on sale for pampered pooches and pussy cats which are made by master cabinetmakers and cost more than most furniture for humans.

The pet furniture from Cedel Pets and Style -- which is miniaturized versions of typical bedroom furniture -- can cost up to £1,200

Many models even include little pillows, duvets and tiny bedside tables, though we can't imagine what a cat keeps in a bedside table.
