Lumadot LED Umbrella
This umbrella is one of our favorite things. For starters, like all good umbrellas should, it keeps you out of the rain. Well, not really. It doesn't actually teleport you from a rainy location to a non-rainy location. Our inventing monkeys are hard at work developing that technology, it may be a few months before we get it perfected. Sadly, we've lost a few Customer Service temps during product testing. We really hope we'll bump into them again on whatever plane or timeline we accidentally sent them. But what this umbrella does (besides keeping you dry) is pretty awesome. With the flick of a switch, it is transformed from a boring black umbrella to a black umbrella with glowing blue raindrops all over it. Flick the switch further and those raindrops will blink! It's deliciously geeky (what geek doesn't like LEDs?) but it's also pretty, which makes it a great gift for the lady in your life who may not be geeky. Buying yourself some cool gadgets and witty t-shirts and don't feel like making a separate purchase for Mother's Day or your girlfriend's birthday? The Lumadot LED Umbrella comes to the rescue! Stay dry, stay safe, and look cool doing it.
Grow Your Own Banana Tree
"Ah, bananas. You can tally them. You can feed them to monkeys. You can pretend they are guns and rob banks in silent comedies and cartoons. AND, they are high in potassium! Oh, and if a bad guy is chasing you, you can so totally drop the banana peel on the floor to create instant hilarity! But here are two things you might not have known. 1. The ""banana tree"" is not actually a tree; it's the world's largest herb. 2. If you get one of these Grow Your Own Banana Tree kits, you'll have almost everything you need to, well, grow your own banana tree (that's really an herb). See, each Grow Your Own Banana Tree comes with everything you need to grow some nanners except for water, sunlight, and unadulterated monkey love. The package is actually a mini greenhouse, and it's guaranteed by the manufacturer to grow. Once the banana tree (we're gonna just call it that for ease, so hush) sprouts, it will grow about a foot in the first month. Treat it right, and you'll have a six foot tree on your hands in about a year. Of course, actually growing fruit will take a bit longer, but if you work hard at it (and don't forget all the monkey love), your Grow Your Own Banana Tree kit could eventually yield fruit! MONKEY LOVES BANANAS! Grow Your Own Banana Tree Banana trees are easy and fun to grow - so grow your own, already. The banana tree grows about a foot in its first month and as much as six feet in its first year. Actually, it's not a tree at all; it's the world's largest herb! Includes: Banana tree seeds, windowsill greenhouse, planting mixture, and instructions/information sheet. Package (Greenhouse) Dimensions: 9"" x 4.5"" x 6"""

Sundial and Stardial Pendants
Technology is awesome, but can we trust it? How can we be sure that our cell phones aren't recording our brain waves and transmitting our ideas to evil corporations? How can we be sure that our watches aren't silently recording our pulses and sending the data to Big Food so they know when to advertise those juicy bacon cheeseburgers on TV and ruin our diet plans? Yeah, see, now you're paranoid too. We've taken the mirrors out of our bathrooms to avoid that classic horror movie moment, too. We recommend you do the same. Preventative paranoia is the key to success. Part of our plan is eschewing traditional watches for the sundial. Inspired by designs from Babylonia, Egypt, the Celts of Northern Europe, the Mayans and Incas and Aztecs, we've found the most imaginative and accurate wearable sundials anywhere. Instructions for reading your new sundial are included. Batteries, however, are not. They're not needed! Who needs batteries to sense the rhythms of the solar system? Guaranteed to work as long as the sun rises... and we don't want to think about the day that stops happening. How the Sundial works... On a sunny day, suspend the sundial by its black satin cord. Through a tiny hole, a thin ray of sunshine will illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day. This Aquitaine sundial was named after Eleanor of Aquitaine, who gave one to King Henry II of England so Henry would know when to return from the hunt for their love trysts. (One must always be timely for love trysts. Tryst us on that one.) How the Stardial works... Set the middle wheel to the month, hold the dial upside down, and sight the North Star through the center hole. Move the top of the dial's arm to align with the uppermost stars of the Big Dipper, and read the time on the inner dial where the arm crosses the hour mark! Star dials were first used in the 15th century by navigators and are extremely accurate because they are based on the North Star. Product Features Pewter sundial & stardial ring pendants Tell the time without electricity, gears, or other technology Modeled after historical timepieces Approximately 1.3 inches (3.3 cm) in diameter Comes with a 30" black silk cord (or supply your own chain)
Leather Statement Cuff
Jewelry is very specific to an individual. Certain people are drawn to certain things. We really like the simplicity of these cuffs, though. Metal and leather. That's it. They're hand-crafted in the US. They have a sort of steampunk aesthetic. And when we saw our quotation options, we knew we had to have them. Choose from Courage: It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. (with an image of a tree) - e.e. cummings Lewis Carroll (attributed to Alice in Wonderland): Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Super Me: If I gotta be me, I'm gonna be SUPER me!!! (with an inscribed lightning bolt above and attribution below) Tolkien: Not all those who wander are lost. (with an image of a swallow, the popular paraphrase from the LoTR poem "All that is gold does not glitter") 8 3/4" long, 1 5/8" wide dark chestnut leather band. Note that this is a softer, malleable leather, not the hard stuff you usually find on cuff bracelets.It fastens using holes punched on one end which slip over two pairs of riveted posts on the other. Depending on how you fasten it, it fits a 7 1/4" (2 outermost holes + 2 outermost posts), 6 1/2" (all 4 holes and posts), or 6" (2 innermost holes + 2 innermost posts) wrist. The plates with the statements on them are cast in lead-free metal and then given an antique brass finish. They attach to the bracelet using brass hooks. Our crafty geek girls will want to know you can add other things on to the hooks, such as beads or charms, to make your statement cuff truly unique, like you. Product features 8 3/4" long, 1 5/8" wide dark chestnut leather band. Statements cast in lead-free metal. Adjusts to fit a 7 1/4" (2 outermost holes + 2 outermost posts), 6 1/2" (all 4 holes and posts), or 6" (2 innermost holes + 2 innermost posts) wrist.
