New Products for June 2011


We’re constantly adding to our range of cool and exciting products for the urban man, but check out some of these cool products that have made their way onto in the past month or so.

Addictaball 3D Maze Puzzle

A handheld game devoid of circuitry, sound effects and flashing lights? Well yes, because despite its low tech spec, Addictaball is the most unputdownable puzzley thing we’ve ever seen. The concept is simple verging on downright childish, as players must twist, turn and tilt this funky transparent orb in order to guide a little metal ball through the crazy three-dimensional maze.  R99- Gimme this!

Pizza Boss 3000 Pizza Cutter

Anyway you slice it, pizza is delicious. But it’s the actual slicing that is so often the problem. All that gooey mozzarella, pesky pepperoni and crusty dough is enough to test the finest cutting implement. Enter, with an incredibly manly strut, the Pizza Boss 3000. R150 – Gimme this!

Koziol Bird Feeder (Lime & Purple)

Treat your birds to a balanced diet with the perfectly-proportioned Koziol Bird Feeder. Whether you have a Japanese zen garden or a twelfth floor balcony, this beautiful sculptural design adds practical style and encourages all sorts of wild birds to stop for a snack. Simply hang the Koziol Bird Feeder from a tree branch or overhead beam using string (not included) and it’s ready to load. R350 – Gimme this!

DIY Hooch Kit

What could be better than your favourite fruit juice? A boozy version of your favourite fruit juice, that’s what. It’s easy with the forehead-slappingly, jaw-droppingly, leg quiveringly, eye-poppingly brilliant DIY Hooch Kit. R180 – Gimme this!

Powerbuzz Magnets

Powerbuzz Magnets. But what in tarnation are Powerbuzz Magnets? Well, despite sounding like some kind of strange ointment for an android’s rear port, these curious yet beautiful little oblique spheroids are actually incredibly powerful magnets that simply can’t bear to be apart. R90 – Gimme this!

My Scratch Map

Fancy yourself as a bit of a globe trotter? A Cosmo P. Olitan-style explorer with more air miles under your seatbelt than Alan Whicker and Judith Chalmers combined? Then don’t waste time showing off by sticking pins in world maps and playing holiday one-upmanship with ill-travelled goons. Get yourself a My Scratch Map. R220 – Gimme this!

Nite Glowring

Of course, everyone knows that laser-sealed borosilicate glass vials that are internally coated with phosphor will create a cold energy that produces a light source when injected with gaseous tritium. It’s as plain as the nose on your face. R120 – Gimme this!

Pocket Cinema ProjectorWOW!

The big problem with little gizmos is that their screens are titchy. In fact trying to enjoy a blockbuster on an iPod is only marginally more entertaining than trying to read the bottom line of an optician’s chart. So thank goodness for the utterly astounding Pocket Cinema. R2,699 – Gimme this!

Retro Metal Pin Art

This Metal Pin Art is a classic desk toy with high quality shiny metal pins. It’s a fun way to pass the time away in the office!
