From whimsical gadgets to fun mechanisms, Kikkerland has a whole array of items that are unique and entertaining. Kikkerland Design's products can be found in thousands of stores around the world, including museum and specialty shops. Some of their novelties I have found to be beneficial while outside or at the camper, and some have been serviceable at home.
One whatnot that's been handy dandy around the house is the Driinn. I have no idea how the name of this item is pronounced, but it know that it helps keep my cell phone and charger close together. It hangs between the battery charger and the wall socket to provide support for your mobile phone and storage for your cord. It is such a simple object, yet is quite useful. My teenage girls and husband also each have one that they use all the time.
Some of my kids don't have keys but that doesn't stop them from constantly playing with the LED Key Chains with Sound. I frequently hear animal sounds coming from the sheep, duck, cat, and pig key chains. The kids who don't have keys have found many things to hang these key chains on. I use one to hang my car keys on. They are cute and the noises are fun to hear. When the key chains are squeezed, an LED light comes on. This helps find things or helps give light in the dark. I've had to warn the youngsters a couple of times to refrain from shining the LED lights in people's eyes, as they are extremely bright and blinding.
The Music Boxes with different tunes have been enthralling. There are more than thirty tunes with all the music boxes combined, each one playing a song of its own. Amazing Grace, Yellow Submarine, and Wedding March are just a few of the tunes available. Each music box comes with screws to mount the box to a hard surface. We have not used the screws. Instead we place the boxes on a hard surface and hold on to it tightly while turning the crank.
I can never own enough playing cards. It seems like we go through them a lot. That's because the kids play games with cards regularly. Although regular playing cards work just fine, there's something extra fancy about playing them with 3D images. The 3D cat, dog, and shark cards take playing card games that much funner.
