Wipe and shine.

These are definitely the bestest windshield wiper sunglasses the Ferret has ever seen. Eh…?OK, perhaps the only ones we’ve ever seen. But with built in headlights? Oh joy, be part of our life once more. $70.00.  Using a single Double A battery in each of the side pieces, this pair of sunglasses really takes the cake. An On/Off switch on the side turns on both the wipers and the headlights at the same time. While the wipers glide smoothly across the heart shape…

The Quark Spinning Top. This Ferret has a fascination with spinning tops, which clearly comes from a deranged childhood. The Quark is billed as ‘the highest performance classic spinning top in the world.’ Hey and it even comes with its own uber cool balancing laser. We don’t want to argue, we just want to play, Play! PLAY! Priced from $49.95 up to $2495.00 for the 14K gold version. Yowsers!  Made of precision machined parts, the meticulously engineered Quark top will…

  Aargh, I can’t tell. Is this the world’s first handsfree umbrella? Or the world’s first handsfree accessory for normal umbrellas? Either way, it’s a genius idea. Bring ‘em on!

T-Rex.

The T-Rex. Stylish, expensive, Canadian three wheeler with 0–60 in 4.1 seconds. Smells like a teenager’s final fantasy, don’t it? $43,190.00. Or indeed its big V-Twin brother the T-Rex T/R.  The combination of motorcycle and formula technology and precision steering provide the T-Rex with optimal handling. Its engine exploits the Japanese superbikes technology and gives this unique vehicle an astounding acceleration.
