Two things that consumed most of our youth are skateboards and big, fat pieces of chalk. The skateboard was obvious – we rode it because we were boys and we enjoyed skinned knees and asking, “Did I get air?” The chalk was mainly for creating games that either existed already, like Four Square (not the check-in kind), or that we invented, like “I Bet You Can’t Ollie Over This Line.” For those reasons, this Chalkboard Skateboard holds double the nostalgic value for us. Hang it from the wall and use it to keep track of the groceries you need or the beers you want to try, or, we suppose at your own risk, hook it up and take it for a ride and see if you can get some air and clear a couple of chalk lines.
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.
