A pirate’s life in bed
Bedtime has never been so much fun … well, at least for kids. The Amsterdam-based company, SNURK, has created a line of fun, soft cotton bedding that features the images of costumes, ranging from mermaids, ballerinas, flamenco dancers and princesses for girls, to superheroes, astronauts, football players and pirates for boys. The clever design allows the head of your child to complete the costume. It’s like Halloween every night, without the candy, of course! They are available at Bedside Manor.
That’s no ordinary rabbit
Psycho Bunny, the successful clothing brand launched in 2005, is surging again. The polo shirts, available at NKY in Camana Bay, are made of luxurious Peruvian Pima cotton that is super soft, durable and maintains shape wash after wash. The famous funny bunny logo that depicts a scary-looking toothy rabbit, will position wearers of the clothing as having an edgy sense of humour … or as being a little mad. It’s good to keep them guessing.
As any dog owner will tell you, if left untrained, dogs can be quite troublesome. They will chew your shoes, take food from your plate if they can reach it, jump on the sofa when you’re not looking and get into all sorts of tail-wagging mischief. Pet Corrector, available at Must Love Dogs, helps train dogs to stop undesired behaviours by emitting a hissing sound from an aerosol canister. Evolution has hard-wired dogs to avoid certain types of sounds because they are associated with dangerous animals such as snakes, aggressive birds and ill-tempered cats. One short burst of Pet Corrector immediately gets a dog’s attention and when followed up with the product’s training tips, will have Fido behaving like a good doggy.
Slug it out!
Looking for something creepy for Halloween? Check out Books & Books, which sells some creepy crawlies from Ridley’s House of Novelties. One of the products is a box of slimy slugs, whose squishy little bodies stick almost anywhere. Ridley’s warns that slimy slugs are only for the “sneakiest of pranksters,” but they have more functional uses, too. For example, if you’re tired of getting interrupted at the office, stick a few of these bad boys on your desk — they will work better than any “Do Not Disturb” sign ever will. As an added bonus, the box tries to translate”slimy slugs” in four other languages. However, the German “Schleimige Schnecken” really translates to “slimy snails.” The German word for “slug” is actually Nacktschnecke, which literally translates to “naked snail” — which is more or less what a slug is!
