Some products are designed to make our lives easier, and actually do fulfill that purpose. But there are so many others that we look at and just can’t help but think “I can’t believe they made that!” Here are our favourite fun, crazy, yet not-so-useful items. Enjoy!

The diet jar
Not eating sweets and chocolates when you’ve got a craving takes a lot of willpower—unless you own a diet jar. This storage device for candy—or anything else you want to put in it—is programmable to stay closed for a length of time of your choice. And don’t even think about trying to open it before you’re supposed to; it’ll give you an electrical jolt if you try to tamper with it!
 
$42 USD at bimbambanana.com


Hello Kitty automatic toilet paper dispenser
People who are especially picky about their toilet paper being the exact same length every time they use the washroom (if there are such people out there) need look no further! Not ready to shell out the equivalent of over $200 on an automatic toilet paper dispenser in a lovely pink and white Hello Kitty scheme? We can’t blame you.


¥22,400 (around $220) in Japan only

ICQ toothpaste
Remember ICQ? It was one of the first instant messaging applications that were widely used over the Internet. Today, most people choose to use Windows Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger… which could be why the Israeli company that first developed ICQ has decided to release a new product: ICQ toothpaste. Perhaps they’re looking to increase the quality of actual face-to-face communication by keeping their users’ teeth clean and breaths fresh…

Available in pharmacies in Israel only

    I don't need a $100 machine to tell me what emotion my cat is expressing, all pet owners should be able to tell just by looking/listening!!

    I definately want those LED faucet lights though, super cool!! Now, just how do I convince the spouse that I really "need" them?? ;p

    I like the faucet lights. The price seems reasonable and it would be safer and cooler for the kids. Wait to go GEEKS...

    If a person got too many shocks from the diet jar it might be enough to put them off sweets (or whatever) for life!! Hilarious but not as funny as the $220 toilet paper roll!

    The L.E.D lights are a great idea, it would probably get our kids washing their hands more often. As for the rest, great conversational pieces!

    These are funny and I can see how people would find them fascinating because I'm with one of the other commenters - I want the LED faucet light too!! And the diet jar would be a great gag gift for Christmas exchange parties, or to leave on your desk at work or to thwart the pesky brother or sister or cube mate who steals your candy!!! LOL!!!

    My sister-in-law put frozen "dentures" in the punch for the last 50th birthday in the family. They were a hit. I could see using the faucet light as a safety feature. The other things are amusing but not worth buying.

    I tried the light change for tap water & 2 days later threw it out. For starters, I had to get a special adapter to put it in my bathroom sink because a lot of bathroom sinks don't have the option to screw it on - only kitchen sinks but the kitchen sink is not reachable by my youngest child so I don't use it there.



    Then the part is so long that you could touch the bottom of the sink when washing your hands, which is nasty.



    Also, the light doesn't produce a colour immediately which means a very hot tap can still scald in the short time it takes to change colour, which defeats the whole purpose doesn't it?



    So its a good idea, but not this design, it has to be perfected & until then, why should we waste our hard earned dollars for a flawed protype?!

    I love the LED faucet, they sell them on ebay for much cheaper. And they do ship to Canada, for my fellow Canadian that wanted one....they even have ones for showers!!!!



    And I agree....a clear diet jar is just cruel!

    Actually,I could use the automatic toilet paper dispenser in my house. My husband and I cannot believe the amount of toilet paper used here on the weekends when all the kids and grandkids are home.(5 kids, 5 grandkids. We have acutally being joking with our kids that we were going to find one of these things and install it in our bathrooms.
