This Inflatable Christmas Ornament Is Coming To A Yard Near You

Published

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.

HUANKD Giant Christmas PVC Inflatable Decorated Ball, Christmas Inflatable Outdoor Decorations Holiday inflatables Balls Decoration with Pump (A, XL) — $22.99

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:

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.

This O’Keeffe’s Deal Could Not Have Come At A Better Time

Published

At the time of this writing, a variety of O’Keeffe’s topical treatment products are on sale as part of Amazon’s early Black Friday deals. These include their acclaimed “Working Hands” and “Healthy Feet” creams, as well as “Lip Repair” balm and “Skin Repair” moisturizer.

The opportunity to get nearly 50% off on O’Keeffe’s skincare products is one you should not miss out on, especially at this time of year. The air is getting colder and drier, which inevitably results in cracked skin. I discovered Working Hands a few years ago, and ever since it has been a major part of my life each fall and winter. The Healthy Feet cream is also incredibly helpful, and although I cannot recommend the Lip Repair and Skin Repair treatments from personal experience, I have no doubt O’Keeffe’s hit home runs with those products as well.

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream Value Size, 6.8 Ounce Jar, (Pack of 2) on sale for $14.89

O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream, 3.2 ounce Jar, (Pack of 2) — $9.79

O’Keeffe’s Skin Repair Dry Skin Moisturizer, Pump Bottle, 12 ounce, (Pack of 2) — $15

Whether you are reading this post in the days leading up to Black Friday 2021, or you happened to stumble upon it well after the expiration of the discounts, O’Keeffe’s gets a “strong recommend” from the We Know Products team.

This Top-Selling Space Heater Will Help You Weather Winter

Published

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. The #1 new product on Amazon right now is this impressive little space heater:

Dreo Space Heater – 70°Oscillating Portable Heater with Thermostat, 1500W PTC Ceramic Heater with 4 Modes, 12h Timer, Safety & Fast – Quiet Heat, Small Electric Heaters for Indoor Use, Bedroom, Office — $49.99

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 Dreo space heater makes that a reality.

At just $50, it is definitely affordable, and it has all the features you would want in a modern space heater. Of course it oscillates 70°, and in addition to having a programmable thermostat, it will auto-adjust depending on the temperature of its surroundings. You can also choose from four environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient modes (high, low, ECO, & fan)

If necessary, this space heater will shut off by itself to prevent overheating. You also do not have to worry about it affecting your sleep, since it is built with an extremely quiet DC motor and 9-blade fan. What more can you ask for?

Fidget toys are going to be a popular gift for kids this Christmas. But there are only so many Pop-Its you can fill your house with before the multicolored monstrosities start driving you insane. I get that the fidget bubble pop toys were designed with sensory stimulation in mind, but why did one of those sense have to be sight? Those things are an eyesore, and you should not feel bad for wanting your child to play with more aesthetically pleasing fidget devices.

That’s where the Infinity Cube comes in.

Infinity Cube Fidget Toy, Sensory Tool EDC Fidgeting Game for Kids and Adults, Cool Mini Gadget Best for Stress and Anxiety Relief and Kill Time, Unique Idea that is Light on the Fingers and Hands — $8.95

The Infinity Cube is a fidget toy from the future. (One YouTube reviewer even calls it “Luxury EDC Fidgeting,” which seems a tad melodramatic.) The Infinity Cubs is a sleek black color, and instead of incessant popping it hearkens back to the early days of fidgeting by allowing for constant hand rotation. It features eight interlocking ABS plastic blocks that you can manipulate in various directions. In a way, it is reminiscent of a Rubik’s Cube, without the frustration that comes from not being able to find a solution.

It comes with all the usual benefits of a fidget toy, helping relieve anxiety and stress while improving focus. Believe it or not, it is even the subject of several ASMR videos.

Just watch the company’s product video, and you will see why. This thing is mesmerizing!
