This Silly Little Portable Fan Makes Summer Bearable

Published

The first day of summer may technically be June 20, but it certainly already feels like summer here in North Carolina. Then again, if you’re a true North Carolinian you know good and well that just because it is 90 degrees today, doesn’t mean it can’t be 50 degrees tomorrow. Be that as it may, summer is in the air, and the heat is coming. 

Now, regardless of how much you may love summer, I think we can all agree that sometimes it gets just a little too hot, even to the point when it’s unbearable. It is during these scorching hot months that we all become a little more thankful for the invention of air conditioning. That is, until your AC decides to stop working, leaving you grumpy, hopeless, and completely drenched in a pool of your own sweat. Two years ago, I was moving into a new house in the peak heat of summer, and to my very unpleasant surprise, the AC hadn’t yet been turned on. I don’t think I have to finish that story for you all to know how that turned out. Fast-forward to a year later when it was time to pack up and move out, and my bad fortune struck again: The AC stopped working. Only this time, I was prepared. With the Anglink Hands Free Portable Neck Fan around my neck, I was able to survive the gruesomeness of packing up my entire life in my house-sized oven.

If your first instinct was to laugh, mine was too. So go right ahead, but keep reading. This portable neck fan happens to be another ingeniously minimalistic product on the market that doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It’s a fan, so don’t expect it to do anything other than what a fan does: Cool you down. What makes it such a genius idea then? Well, it’s portable, that’s what. You can wear it around the house, you can wear it on a walk, you can wear it at work, you can wear it laying by the pool or laying on the beach. I mean, you can literally wear it just about anywhere (except for in water of course), and it is going to help keep you cool. With fan heads designed to rotate 360 degrees and the ability to power at three different speeds, this comfortable, lightweight fan is made suitable for everyone.

For some added flair, the fan is equipped with LED lights, which are not only fun to look at, but also make you visible to drivers if you are someone who enjoys a late-night walk. Get this: You can even put it around your dog’s neck if you wanted to. We all know as humans how hot we can get outside, but imagine being a dog completely covered in hair. That’s not to say they still won’t get hot, but the fan will help them stay cool long enough for them to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities. Good luck coming up with an excuse not to walk your dog now. 

Like I said, genius.

At $9, This Silly Plush Turkey Hat Is A Must-Own

Published

In 2022, Santa hats are out. Silly turkey hats are in.

I was on Amazon looking for things to do over Thanksgiving with relatives (eventually landing on the brand new game Christmas Categories) when I came across this:

Kangaroo Plush Thanksgiving Day Roasted Turkey Hat Tan — $8.95

My first thought was that it creates the perfect opportunity for someone in the family to recreate the classic Monica turkey head scene from Friends:

Then I realized that there are many ways you can have fun with the turkey hat Thanksgiving. When you play games, you can decide in advance that the loser has to wear the turkey hat. Or perhaps you can start a tradition that whoever carves the turkey each year gets to wear the turkey hat. The possibilities are endless!

No matter how you are spending the holiday this year (with funny turkey hat, or sans funny turkey hat), the We Know Products team wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!

Keep Comfort Within Arm’s Reach With NAIPO’s New Handheld Massager

Published

on

If you go on Amazon and search for “handheld massager,” you will find dozens and dozens of clones of the same $100 massage gun. My immediate reaction upon seeing this was that there is no longer any innovation in the massager industry. Instead of actually investing in R&D to come up with more advanced ways to help customers, massager companies seem content to copy one another and compete on price.

One company gives me hope. That company is NAIPO, a well-known massager brand whose stated mission is to help people all over the world “Find Well-being.” NAIPO’s latest handheld massager features a brand new design that provides added value for the user. While it is still a percussion massager, its sleek comfort-grip handle grants access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. It also features 5 interchangeable massager heads so that you are able to treat each acupuncture point with the best possible massage.

This attention to detail creates a truly customizable experience. After a workout or just a long day at work, you can choose from 5 different speed levels and 5 different working modes, from gentle relaxation to vigorous, deep-tissue massage. By virtue of the extended front grip, you can give exactly the right type of massage to previously neglected muscles all over your body.

A common complaint about percussion massagers is the noise level that can make it awkward or even impossible to use in public. The new NAIPO handheld massager is different. Unlike its competitors, it provides amazing results with only a single massage head. This has the twin effect of reducing noise levels and making it lighter and therefore less unwieldy, a huge plus especially for older users.

The NAIPO XF-5120 handheld massager will be available for purchase soon, and at $52.99 it is inarguably cheaper than similar products on the market. You get your very own either at NAIPO’s own storefront on naipocare.com or on Walmart.com. Stay tuned for more updates!

This Amazon Space Heater Will Help You Weather Dropping Temperatures

Published

on

The most famous quote from Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Sun Also Rises is a character’s response to the question “How did you go bankrupt?”

“Two ways,” Mike said, “gradually then suddenly.”

Such a description could also be applied to the weather so far this autumn. The temperatures where I live did gradually drop from the 90s to the 80s to the 70s and so forth, but the transition to daily temperatures in the 40s still feels sudden. I have not even had time yet to locate all my winter clothes.

All this is to say, I found myself in immediate need of warmth. Apparently, I am not the only one. One of the bestsellers on Amazon right now is this space heater:

A space heater has become a necessity in our current age of working from home. When you alternate time spent in your bedroom, your office, and your living room, ideally you want the heat to come with you from place to place. The Amazon Basics space heater (equipped with a carrying handle for easy transport) makes that a reality.

The official We Know Products recommendation is that you go with the oscillating version, which at only $4 more than the standard is 100% worth it.
