This is why I love the Animal House line of utensils and gadgets for Boston Warehouse. Scrubbing potatoes with this cutie makes the chore a little more pleasurable. Use the parakeet to chirp through the task of mincing garlic or let the piranha cutter take a bite out of divvying up pizza. There's also a swordfish knife that'll slice through bread with ease. And remember there's no monkeying around when skinning veggies with this peeler.
Hey, they may be a little corny, or maybe I am, but they're cute and quirky and most important, they work.
Veggie Brush, $7
Parakeet Garlic Press, $15
Piranha Pizza Cutter, $15
Swordfish Knife, $12
Monkey Peeler, $8
