Cuter Than Cute: Clever Winnie the Pooh Lids

Winnie the Pooh Glassware

Design studio Nendo likes to have fun when it comes to creating clever kitchen goods, like their tricky Starbucks mugs and double helix chopsticks. Most recently, the company teamed up with Walt Disney Japan to design a glassware collection around Winnie the Pooh, and it’s cuter than cute.

Nendo created these silicone accessories that feature Pooh doing what he does best — climbing branches, holding onto balloons and dunking his head in what’s usually a honey jar. Plus, they serve as totally functional lids! Also included in this collection are silicone coasters with designs like Pooh stuck in a hole and a jar of honey.

Anti-Theft Pint Glass Explodes Ink If You Try to Steal It

pint-ink

Apparently, stealing pint glasses from pubs is becoming a worldwide dilemma. At least, a serious enough issue that cider-maker Kopparberg rolled out a new set of pint glasses bearing “custom-made security tags.” In order to prevent customers from walking out with their precious glassware, Kopparberg installed tags (similar to the ones attached to clothes at retail stores) that explode with ink if carried more than 100 meters away from the bar.

Although the company insists that this anti-theft gadget is not meant to “punish people,” we see it going terribly wrong anyway. What happens when you’ve had a few drinks and the girl you’ve been eyeing all night suddenly runs out of the pub with her gaggle of girls? Without thinking, you grab your pint of beer (of course), and chase after. Unfortunately, your forgot about that pesky “security tag” and just as you’re about to catch up with her, it explodes, splattering you in ink from head to toe. Hardly the ideal first impresson.
