Pet urine detector UV light
Fido won’t be able to fool you anymore! This UV urine detector light will catch his dirty deed every time. The blacklight flashlight reveals stains on absorbent surfaces by emitting long-wave UV light that cause dried urine salts to shine bright. If your dog is having more accidents than usual, that’s a symptom he may be sick.
If you’ve ever felt like you wanted to be perkier, Amazon has your back. This set of fake nipples comes in three colors and four sizes. All you need is body adhesive to get the show on the road. The online retailer has no shortage of fake nipple suppliers, in case you were looking for additional sizing or more brands. Take a peek at their selection, no pun intended.

Bird poop remover
We all hate flying surprises, especially those in the bird droppings department. Take revenge on the nastiest of birds with your very own bottle of bird poop remover. It easily removes avian messes from clothing, upholstery, carpets, and hard surfaces. Can also be safely used on cages, plus the makers guarantee no dust will be created in the process.
A pound of fat
Shakespeare references aside, this fat replica blob 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.
AK-47 bullet ice cube tray
Now you can make ice 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, the United States, or penguins. Have an Amazon Alexa? You need to learn these 11 things you didn’t know it could do.
Lots of marshmallows
Calling all bulk buyers! Why buy 80 rolls of toilet paper when you could get 8 pounds of cereal marshmallows instead? These are more 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 $1,495). But this slightly smaller instrument ($14.94; 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.
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 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.
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 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.
In theory, Pocksie temporary sticky pockets 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 or garter purse 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 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.
