Once you go beyond books and toiletries, this online superstore can be a very bizarre place.
Insects and worms

A pound of fat
Shakespeare references aside, this fat replica blob ($23.10) could be a great weight-loss motivator. One reviewer says, “I put my lump of fat in front of the fridge, set it in front of my plate at meals, and even carry it with me to restaurants.” With enough exercise, maybe it will transform into a pound of muscle ($33.66; sold separately).
Very large, very heavy things
AK-47 bullet ice cube trayvia amazon.com
Now you can make ice ($5.40) for the hunting or military buff, or for anyone frustrated that normal cubes won’t fit into water bottles. If you’d like to cool the beverage of a pacifistic type, opt for hearts ($9.23), the United States ($9.68), or penguins ($5.99). Have an Amazon Alexa? Here are 11 things you didn’t know it could do.
The Gutenberg Biblevia amazon.com
This tome, perhaps misnamed, sells for a cool $5.27 used. Sadly, the ancient text’s reviews aren’t good. “This isn’t the Gutenberg Bible I thought I was buying,” complained one reviewer.
Giant googly eyes
Keep an eye on things with these giant stickers ($9.99). One reviewer confirms that the eyes “google quite well,” so at least you know you’ll get your money’s worth.
Lots of marshmallows
Calling all bulk buyers! Why buy 80 rolls of toilet paper ($41.49) when you could get 8 pounds of cereal marshmallows ($48.99) instead? Check out these amazing Amazon products you’ll definitely use every day.
Not that you can’t buy a regular piano on Amazon, because you totally can (a digital grand piano goes for $1,995). But this slightly smaller instrument ($17.99; 6 inches, 8 ounces) is meant for only those opposable digits. The sound won’t fill a concert hall, but with a little practice, you could be like this guy.
An engagement ring
Do you want a two-carat princess cut ring with a platinum band? Do you have more than $15K to spare? If so, we have the ring for you!
Decal of woman with an inhaler
Forget the family photos and gallery walls—Amazon found a better use of your wall space. This wall decal of a “senior woman with asthma” ($24.96) is sure to be a conversation starter. Here are the Amazon hacks every online shopper needs to know.
Need a gift for the person who has everything? We guarantee this is one thing your friend doesn’t have. Apparently, this plastic pickle ($11.24) “yodels its little heart out at the push of a button.”
French fry holder
Don’t you just hate when you’re eating some nice, crispy French fries on the go, but they go flying when you break for a stoplight? Never fear! The “Fries on the Fly” multi-purpose universal French fry holder ($10.95) is here. The base fits in standard car cup holders and keeps fry containers upright so you can snack anytime you’re in the car. Didn’t finish them on the drive to your destination? You can hang the device from your belt and turn it into your personal fry holster.
Corgi butt shoulder bag
It may not be a designer handbag, but this soft, adorable purse ($14.88) is a must-have for any Corgi lover. Plus, it’s practical; there’s a convenient hole to slip your headphones through right under the tail.
Duct tape necktie
Ties have long been a go-to Father’s Day gift, but unless you’ve taken an inventory of Dad’s closet, you run the risk of buying him a tie that’s too similar or identical to one he already has. Luckily, there’s this one made out of duct tape ($23.00) that comes wrapped up like a roll of duct tape, which will surely become the most creative accessory in your dad’s wardrobe. Check out these hidden gems on Amazon you’ll wish you knew about sooner.
Grass flip flops
In theory, Pocksie temporary sticky pockets ($9.95) seem surprisingly practical, albeit odd. If you don’t want to lug around a purse and your outfit doesn’t have pockets, simply stick a temporary pocket on the inside of your jacket to keep your ID and credit cards on hand. Unfortunately, several reviewers say they don’t stick very well and are too small to fit a driver’s license by itself. Perhaps an undercover bra stash ($13.50) or garter purse ($19.99) is the way to go.
Shakespearean insult bandages
Beige Band-Aids are blasé and cartoon characters are for kids, but when you have a paper cut, these bandages ($6.32) get you laughing through the pain. Each has a snub from the Bard himself, like “Do thou amend thy face, and I’ll amend my life” (from Henry IV, Part I). Next, check out these things you can buy on Amazon for less than a dollar.
