Where the wild things are.
Animal lover? Looking to add a bit of whimsy to your staid home? We put together a list of animal wares for your abode. Make your house a zoo, but with far less poop. Read on.
Did you know that brown bats sleep around 19 hours a day, or that sea otters hold hands while they sleep so they don’t drift away from one another? We’re not promising you’ll sleep that soundly, but these animal-pattern sheets, made with 1500-thread-count cotton, are certainly cozy and cute. Oh, and wrinkle-resistant, too.
Armadillos are not known for being extremely social creatures. In fact, armadillos are around each other mostly to keep warm or to procreate. Let this silicone armadillo business card holder be a reminder to get out there and be social.
Rabbits are fast and smart. In order to evade predators, they run in a zigzag pattern at speeds of up to 18 mph. That’s kind of like you, when you’re properly caffeinated. This mug holds 9.5 ounces of liquid and is made of white porcelain with a matte finish. If you fill it full of coffee, you too can easily evade predators. Also: it’s so cute.
Cows can produce 3 to 4 gallons of milk per day. This ceramic cow holds two ounces. (It’s also dishwasher safe.)
When a lion roars, it can be heard from up to five miles away. Give your dog a lion’s confidence with this sweet wig. FYI, it’s intended for larger dogs.
Hedgehogs can sleep up to 18 hours a day, roll up into a ball when in danger, and have protective quills to keep away enemies. Take that inspiration. This colorful hedgehog pillowcase is made of cotton linen, is 18 inches square, and has an invisible zipper. Pillow not included.
There are 289 species of these eight-armed creatures. They have three hearts and die soon after mating. That breaks all one of my hearts. Are you into cephalopods? This octopus lantern holder is made of aluminum and iron and comes with a dark bronze finish. It is 15 inches tall and 18 inches wide.
Nothing really to say about this flying pig stress ball. It’s made of foam and 2.5-inches tall. It’s adorable.
Mute swans are aggressive and can eat up to eight pounds of food a day. While they are known to mate for life, they will find a new partner if their mate dies. These inflatable swans hold your drinks in the water.
The colors of a rainbow trout—the Oncorhynchus mykiss—can change depending on their habitat. They in the salmon family and eat insects and smaller fish. This rainbow trout oven mitt is made out of cotton and isn’t intended to be used with hotter baking dishes.
