Things that...look like other things!

There has been a pretty visible trend going on lately of products designed to look like clever impostors of other items. I've taken to calling these "Things That Look Like Other Things" and I'm totally a huge fan. Let's take a look at a few in the store right now:

Looks like a perfect little piece of toast, right?
Check it out! It's really a wallet, how cute it that?

The always impressive "I am not a paper cup" cup! White double walled ceramic ( to keep your drinks toasty warm) and a silicone pop on lid. I have one of these, and let me tell you... you will receive a lot of love and compliments from the baristas with this guy!
MMmmm... look at that tasty chocolate bar just waiting to be eaten.....
Whao! That's no chocolate bar, its a CHOCOLATOR! Oh yes, it's a flexible silicone calculator that looks curiously similar to a very delicious treat. Can you possibly resist?

And what's this?! Lo
oks like someone has almost solved this Rubik's Cube!

e! Because this ain't no toy... it's a cleverly designed pepper mill (we have matching salt mill versions too)! Impress your guests with your mastery of the Rubik's Cube, and then AMAZE them with its true purpose! Pretty much guaranteed to get the attention of even the most shy dinner companions.
(Ceramic "milk carton" creamer and "splash" bowl)

("Inflatable" pin cushion- it's actually filled with foam so you can stick all the pins and needles in you like!)
