Almost irresistible toys

with 4 comments

Some  things, if well designed and well made, are almost irresistible. For example, I went into the hardware store to buy a washer, and I came out with a washer and also a little LED flashlight that also shines a laser (the better to tease Megs). Here are some things that seem to me to fall into that category:

Kitchen tools
Mechanical pencils
Pocket Knives

Any others you can think of?

  1. Definitely pocket knives. But I hate mechanical pencils. I refuse to even acknowledge that they are actual pencils. 🙂

    And Scott needs to meet my sterling silver Criterium Conté mechanical pencil with 2mm lead…

  3. Custom house key in a different visual design, easily made at the local hardware store. They usually have lots of design samples to chose from – Flowers, flags, etc. My house key is an American flag. Makes it real easy to find the key!
