This set of four Marvel hero cookie cutters will turn out perfect Spiderman, Hulk, IronMan, and Captain America cookies like Hollywood turns out tired story-lines. Which is to say: often, easily and with great success.

Prague-based designer Vadim Kibardin has taken what looks like a bold step toward a new, ultra-minimalism with his Black & White Clock. The clock is gone, and all that remains are the numbers.

Yes, you can let the kids play with them but you don’t necessarily have to.
It feels like we’ve barely got time for coffee and a slice of toast in the morning, but if you woke up one morning to the smell of fresh donuts coming from your kitchen, you might just slow your roll.

Remember college? No? Try this: Lose twenty pounds, empty your wallet, hide the kid’s car seat in the closet and light one of these candles. Let the youthful “Dorm Room” scent, a combination of cologne, weed, and Fritos take you back to those golden days of yore.
The Citrocasa Fantastic is better than the juicer you’ve got right now. In fact, it’s so good you might even use it. And this claim isn’t just opinion, it’s fact.

Nobody before or since has played a psycho-killer as naturally terrifying as Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Now you can re-live this sick and twisted moment of Hollywood history every hour on the hour.

When it strikes the hour, this cuckoo says, “Here’s Johnny!” followed by a scream from Shelly Duval.
