  Toy cameras are very trendy these days. There are some models out on the market that take very artsy pictures in sharp colors, while other cameras only have a fish-eye lens and still others work only underwater. But, who could have imagined they’d come out with a camera that takes 3D photos? Takara Tomy’s 3D ShotCam does just that.

The camera is rectangular and has two lenses.

This moneybox features a kitty cat peeking out of a cardboard box to grab the coin.

  Ingenious novelty piggy banks are the latest trend on the Japanese market, but this moneybox is especially adorable. Whenever you put a coin in it, a little kitty cat peeks out of the cardboard box and sticks its paw out to try to grab it.

The cardboard box is actually made of plastic, but it has a very realistic design, like those boxes used to deliver fruit or instant noodles to shops, which are, sadly, often used to abandon pets.

If you want to make sure your doughnuts keep their nice round sugar-frosted shape, we suggest you get your hands on this Japanese designed box and use it to carry your doughnuts around: from your house to the office, from your desk to a meeting, etc.

Star Wars Christmas Tree Lights

These Christmas tree lights are perfect for Star Wars fans because they're shaped like the most adorable android of all times: R2D2.

  This holiday season, decorate your home in a way that's original, different and, above all, a bit geeky, with these Christmas tree lights shaped like the most charismatic and charming robot ever to hit the silver screen: R2D2.

The android's rounded shape has inspired many a designer, and, as far as we know, his figure has been turned into a trash can, a backpack and even a mail box in commemoration of the saga's 30th anniversary.

  Shot glasses made of glass seem to be present in just about every home. No knows exactly how they made their way to the kitchen cupboard, but there they are, always getting in the way. And we only use them at most once a year! So what's the use of keeping them? Get rid of them!

We suggest you get these edible shot glasses instead, they're much more practical and pretty: they're made out of candy canes, and once you drink the contents you can sink your teeth into them.

Rubber Ducky Tea Infuser

This cool tree infuser comes with a cute rubber ducky, a tea filter, and a little pool shaped dish to leave the ducky on when your tea is ready.

  Why drink tea alone when you can drink it in the company of a rubber ducky? Only he knows how to correctly prepare a nice cup of tea: put the tea leaves in his tummy/infuser, make sure you close it right, put it in the cup and let it float in the hot water. After splashing about in the cup for the few minutes, the rubber ducky will have done its work and your drink will be ready.

It looks like a spray bottle with a very colorful drawing of a bird on it and, actually, the mechanism used is exactly the same as on a normal spray bottle.
