As you have no doubt heard, because of supply chain issues plaguing the world over, the time to start shopping for Christmas was weeks ago. Consumers have been taking this directive to heart. Take a look at the bestsellers on Amazon, and you will see that #1 in the “Patio, Lawn & Garden” section is this giant Christmas ball.
According to the listing, “When it comes to outdoor holiday decorations, bigger ones always feel more satisfying.” I am not sure I agree with that, but I can accept that kids do get a real kick out of giant inflatable Santas and the like. The real question I have concerns how big we are actually talking here. In one of the images, it seems to be a little smaller than a 5-year-old girl:
But in another one it looks to be nearly as tall as the first story of a house!
The listing says its diameter is 60 centimeters, which of course is of absolutely no help to shoppers on this side of the Pacific. Because we are here to provide a service to our readers, we looked up what that means: about 2 feet. According to an article I found on the Internet, that is about the size of a 4-month-old baby. That means the photo with the girls is definitely closer to being accurate.
Why is this particular outdoor decoration more popular than anything else available on Amazon? I couldn’t tell you. It has to be partly based on price. It is not uncommon for this kind of decoration to go for upwards of $60:
8 Foot Christmas Inflatable Nutcracker Soldier Outdoor Decorations, Light Up Inflatable Santa Claus Soldier with 3 LED Lights Blow Up Decorations for Yard Lawn Garden Xmas Decor (4 Stakes 2 Tethers) — $64.99
Christmas Inflatable Decoration 6 ft Polar Bear Christmas Tree Inflatable with Build-in LEDs Blow Up Inflatables for Christmas Party Indoor, Outdoor, Yard, Garden, Lawn, Winter Decor, Holiday Season — $64.99
6FT Christmas Inflatable Blow Up Decoration,Inflatable Christmas Tree with 3 Gift Boxes , Self Inflatable Christmas Decor with LED Lights for Xmas Holiday Indoor,Outdoor,Yard,Garden,Lawn,Square Decor — $66.99
Notably, these eyesores are all considerably bigger than the blow-up ornament. Perhaps giving the dimensions in centimeters and including the photo beside the house are meant to obscure the relatively diminutive size of the ornament. Despite being a #1 bestseller, the ornament does not currently have any customer reviews (presumably, people are waiting until the end of spooky season to adorn their house for Christmas). One has to wonder if folks are in for a surprise when their attempt at holiday spirit dwarfs in comparison to that of their neighbors.

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