There are a lot of things we’d like to own if we could take a “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” ray-gun to them: One of those top secret stealth helicopters that crashed during the bin Laden raid, a giraffe like the guy from the Direct TV commercial, the Statue of Liberty. Just like designer Daniel Ballou however, we can find beauty in simplicity and functionality too. That’s why we like his mini 8″ Cargo Containers that look like tiny versions of the ones you’d see at a shipyard. Daniel would know seeing as how he’s from Long Beach, one of the busiest ports there is, just how to depict the normally large vessels. Get ’em in blue & white or orange & gray and store, well, much smaller goods than you would in the regular 8 foot versions. Just resist the urge to pinch their adorable little ceramic cheeks.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
