There are few things in this world more pleasing than classic cars rendered in brick form — instantly combining two of our favorite obsessions into one toy — and the Lego Mini Cooper is one of the finest examples of this combination we've seen. The classic Mini has been painstakingly recreated in green with white racing stripes, featuring a realistic motor, a trunk, hood, and doors that open, and an incredibly-detailed interior. With fog lamps, a moving shift nob, steering wheel, patchwork upholstery, and even a picnic basket, no element has been left out from this beautiful little British model (they even made it right-hand drive).
Combining your love for turning wrenches with your passion for one of the greatest board games ever conceived by man, the Tool Chess Set is hand-made from various nuts, bolts, and other hardware. Delivered to you in a classic-looking tool chest (available in either black or red), the set comes with 32 pieces, powder-coated in black and white, as well as a roll-up green and white vinyl chess board. Everything fits tidily into the case, letting you easily transport your set to wherever your games takes you. Each piece has considerable heft, giving them a great feel in your hand, while their durable finish won't tarnish, even after years of use.
Stop wasting your weekends sitting around on the couch watching the tube — it's getting nice outside, and you need to get out and appreciate it. And there's hardly a better way to do that than with the Aquapod Bottle Launcher. Made to work with any two-liter bottle, a bicycle pump, and water, the Aquapod is capable of launching a plastic pop bottle up to 100 feet into the air. Built to last for plenty of summers to come, it's constructed from high-quality, durable ABS plastic, and features a simple one-piece design. All you need to do is pump it up until the check valve releases pressure, pull the launch cord, and you're ready to go.
