I’m all for an aesthetic kitchen with matching utensils and a minimalist spoon rest, but sometimes you just need a fun platypus-shaped
spatula to add a little joy to your life. There’s no need to track down quirky products like this spatula, because I’m a shopping editor and these weird things with near-perfect Amazon reviews are so effing cool.
Don’t worry — it’s not all animal-shaped kitchen utensils on this list. (Although there
is a manatee-shaped tea infuser that’s worth grabbing.) Instead, I searched for the quirkiest products that will fit into your unique home decor, skincare routine, cleaning closet, and more. I even found a foldable organizer to help out your car and a handy splash-proof electric lighter for every trendy candle you own.
Trust me — there’s something on this list for wherever you could use a cool product that’s a bit unique.

Plus, these scrubbers are compact enough to fit next to any kitchen sink or in the tiniest cleaning closets.
