Are you fed up with bringing bananas to work or school only to find them bruised and squashed? Banana Guard allows you to safely transport and store individual bananas and lets you enjoy perfect bananas anytime, anywhere. Lock Cup Anti-Theft Coffee Cup. Are you tired of others stealing your coffee cup? Well now there’s a solution. The Lock – Cup has a hole which prevents most people from using it. Only the owner of the cup can use his/hers shaped key to close the hole. Making tea, though easy to do, is also time consuming. Once you pour the hot water into the cup, you must patiently hover over it and wait. Well, the Penguin Tea Timer happily does the waiting for you. Place your tea cup under the beak and set it to the desired time. As you turn the timer dial, the beak lowers the tea into the hot water. When the time is up, a bell sounds and the penguin automatically lifts his beak, removing the tea bag from the water. One Click Butter Cutter controls your portion as an important part of staying healthy. This ingenious butter cutter delivers one standard portion with each click of the handle.
