As a great many episodes of Shark Tank have taught the world, sometimes strange inventions are the best inventions. A product you may have never considered before (may have even giggled at) could just turn out to be the best thing to happen to your home in years. From problem solvers to just-plain fun gadgets and accessories, these 40 weird things for your home you’ll find you can’t live without will make you even more excited to spend time in your home sweet home.
Whether you’re a natural homebody or would rather be traveling the world, it’s difficult not to get excited about quirky cooking and dining accessories that make mealtime feel like a party— like dinosaur-shaped taco holders, a retro toaster designed specifically for hot dogs and buns, and a brownie pan designed specifically to churn out only the best brownie pieces (aka the chewy, delish edges).
This list of unusual products also include items that will encourage you to kick back and relax, while also putting a smile on your face with their awkwardness. Ordinary blankets are great and everything, but have you ever settled in to watch a movie while wrapped in a blanket the looks like a burrito or pizza? And why strain your neck to read a book in bed when a genius pair of prism glasses on this list directs your gaze 90 degrees so that you don’t even have to move?
From an extraordinary pet invention that ensures your furry friend always has fresh water to a keyboard so silent you can get your gaming on at midnight, these are the wonderfully weird and wacky products you’ll wish you knew about sooner.
