Wow! I need one of those!

Here are some clever products that the
world has been crying out for.


Smart cup in which you can put 2-3 of your favourite
cookies. You don't need extra plates. It's made for
right handed and left handed users.


Latest "must have" fashion statement for
Far North QLD (There are floods there)


Never lose your remote again!
With giant buttons, this extra-large remote is easy to
use and impossible to lose. It's a 6-in-1 remote so
you can use it to control your TV, VCR, DVD
player, satellite, cable and auxiliary A/V device.
It even features glow-in-the-dark buttons, so you
can easily find the remote in the dark.


Do you get up at night to drink water, go to the
toilet...Do you wish you could see in the dark?
Remarkably bright LED lights are triggered by
your footsteps and light up the floor 30 feet in
front of you; ultra-soft plush style are extra
comfortable and cozy warm.


Chalk outline crime scene beach towel -
be the coolest person on the beach!


You love toast, but you always burn it?
Than, this invention us for you.
This transparent toaster allows you to see the
bread while it is toasting so you just have to
take it out when the colour is right. This idea
is based on a transparent heating glass technology.


'Who left the Toilet Seat up?' The PeaceMaker will
end the battle of the toilet seat. Merely step on the
pedal to activate the lifting mechanism. When finished,
remove your foot from the pedal and the seat gently
comes to a rest where it started.


If you are traveling a lot and don't always know
the language of the country you are visiting, then
this T-shirt is for you. It has a phrase book
printed on it so just point a finger at the pictogram
you need and then point it twice at the question
mark, which means, "Where is it?" and in no time
you have found what you were looking for... or not.


Laser Scissors Cutting a straight line has never
been easier. Just aim the pin-point laser and
follow the line. The scissor blades are stainless
steel and cut very clean with a micro serrated edge.


Whether you want to sit on the sun or in the shade,
near the river or under the tree... now you have
your movable bench, to sit wherever you like.


Making tea, though easy to do, is also time
consuming. Once you pour the hot water into the
cup, you must patiently hover over it, waiting for
the tea to steep. Well, the Penguin Tea Timer
happily does the waiting for you. Place your tea
cup under the beak and set it to the desired time.
As you turn the timer dial, the beak lowers the
tea into the hot water. When time is up, a bell
sounds and the penguin automatically lifts his beak,
removing the tea bag from the water.

Exotic Pets.

A blonde goes to her local pet store in search of an 'exotic' pet. As she looks
about the store, she notices a box FULL of live frogs.

Theres a sign that says: "SEX FROGS" Only $20 each!

Comes with 'complete' instructions.

The girl excitedly looks around to see if anybody's watching her. She whispers
softly to the man behind the counter, "I'll TAKE one!"

As the man packages the frog, he quietly says to her, "Just follow the instructions!

The blonde nods, grabs the box, and is quickly on her way home.

As soon as she closes the door to her apartment, she opens the instructions and
reads them very carefully. She does EXACTLY what is specified:

1. Take a shower.
2. Splash on some nice perfume.
3. Slip into a very sexy nightie.
4. Crawl into bed and place the frog down beside you, and allow the frog to do
what he has been trained to do.

She then quickly gets into bed with the frog and to her surprise . . NOTHING happens!
The blonde is very disappointed and quite upset at this point. She re-reads the
instructions and notices at the bottom of the paper it says, "If you have any problems
or questions . please call the pet store."

So, she calls the pet store. The man says, "I'll be right over." Within minutes, the man
is ringing her doorbell. The blonde welcomes him in and says, "See, I've done everything
according to the instructions. The damn frog just SITS there!"

The man . . . looking very concerned, picks up the frog, stares 'directly into its eyes'
and says STERNLY:


I'm only going to show you how to do this

ONE ... MORE ... TIME!!!"

Good evening, I found your blog from visiting Merle. I must say, you have found some pretty interesting gadgets. In fact, that bench that is movable is really a good idea. I did have to enlarge the photo of the women's shoes, quite different. Ha!Ha! Also liked the dumb blonde joke, or should I say the froggie and the smart salesman joke. Have a great evening.

junebug said...

The blonde joke is hilarious! He he.

Merle said...

Hi Peter ~~ Good post ~ I liked the gadgets and the joke was so funny. Hadn't seen it before either.
Take care, Love, Merle.

Dave said...

That joke's an old one... but I love it every time I read it! *LOL* Good one Peter!

Jeanette said...

Hi Peter. I could do with a couple of those gadgets, specially the scissors to cut a straight line...
Hahaha very funny joke.... Jan

That joke is funny- and new to me!

And I'm with Jan on those scissors!

LOL- Bute the coffee cup??? I'd need a bigger space for my cookies! :)


lisa's chaos said...

I came over because I was late for FM but wow am I glad I was or did or whatever. I think I have found a few items to put on my birthday wish list. :)

A see-thru toaster? How cool is that?! And those shoes crack me up! Love the cookies with the coffee. . . .my list is growing. :)

I see that the emails do make it around the world. Those are some pretty neat inventions. Some are well thought out.

Now, that frog obviously isn't well trained...

Pamela said...

what a great post of ideas (except for the frog - too funny)

Cliff said...

Peter I'll bet I could lose that remote anyway.
Good joke. That was a joke and not something you've tried, right?

kenju said...

Good products, Peter! mr. kenju would love the coffee cup with built-in cookies!

LZ Blogger said...

Peter ~ Some great stuff here... but by far my favorite (that's US spelling) on was the Coffee Cup with the cookie tray. I just had trouble figuring out if you showed the Right or Left handed version on your picture. My guess... Right, because if it was the Left handed one, the cookies would fall out when you drank the coffee. ~ jb///

I have one of those remotes, I still can't find it.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Yeah, I'll have one of those remotes, too, and why doesn't someone invent bigger mobile phones so I can see the numbers on those, too, and the Eftpos pads in the shops, and...I could go on.

As for the joke, I don't think it is a joke. I reckon you're the one selling those sex frogs...

daffy said...

I love that giant remote! No chance of that getting lost down the back of the sofa!

Hey there Peter, how are you ?? I'm trying to get around to everyone (finally) to visit blogs. It's been ages, since before Christmas, I think.
Anyway, I love those gadgets, particularly the laser scissors and the see through toaster !!
Have a great week. Take care, Meow
