Ten Quirky products you never knew you needed

“Oh, wow – why didn’t I think of that???”

Consider yourself warned – you’ll be asking this question in your head a bunch of times as you read about the ten awesome and innovative products below.  We’ve highlighted ten of the coolest, cleverest and most convenient inventions for sale on shop.quirky.com that will undoubtedly change your life in some way.  We bet you’ll want one of each!   

1)     Kosoku Dog Leash - $39.99

retractable dog leash with poop bags - $39.99

According to Statista, there were 77.8 Million dogs living in American households in 2015.  WOW – that’s a lot of pups that need to be walked – and even more dog poop!  We know you love your dog a ton – maybe even more than some people you know.  But we’d bet there are not many out there who love picking up dog dookey.  If you own a pooch that you take for walks around a park or your neighborhood, chances are you’ve been caught without a proper poo bag at least once.  Never a good time.

The Kosoku Dog Leash will save you forevermore from this predicament, and is the heavyweight champion of dog leashes.  Fully featured with a discrete compartment for poop bags, comfortable but sturdy air mesh hand loop, reflective, retractable leash and sturdy metal collar latch, this leash alone will provide a much more enjoyable and convenient walk for you and your pup.    

2)     Mocubo cutting board - $39.99

multi-purpose cutting board - $39.99

Anyone who loves to cook and use fresh ingredients in the kitchen is going to squeal for joy upon discovering this insanely clever and useful cutting board.  The board itself, made of oil-treated bamboo, sits atop three hidden plastic prep drawers.  So, your food prep will go like this: chop your onion, pull out the first drawer and slide in the pieces.  If you fill up all three trays with chopped food, stack them neatly in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use your ingredients.

That’s it – the Mocubo cutting board is a one-stop-chop-shop!  No more dirtying odd sized-bowls or spilling your chopped food all over the floor as you transfer it from the board to the pan.

What a wonderful wine widget!

10)  Zeus Snow Shovel & Brush - $24.98

snow shovel and brush by Quirky - $24.98

Sure, there are some parts of the States where folks have never shoveled a single snowflake in their lives.  But if you live in the Northeastern parts of the country, you’ve probably spent many winter days shoveling, digging and scraping your car free from snow, ice, frost and slush.  Between the shovels, scrapers, brushes and brooms in your trunk, you probably have room for little else.  

Your wintertime struggle just got a bit easier with the Zeus Snow Shovel and Brush!  Fully assembled, the product functions as a sturdy snow shovel.  Detach the handle and it doubles as a snow brush and scraper.  Reconnect once more, slide the snow brush head forward to make the shovel more compact to easily store it under your car seat.  One last unique feature:  the end of the shovel handle/snowbrush/ice scraper is reflective and can be used in an emergency situation.  You won’t want to go anywhere in the winter weather without this trusty tool in tow.

These awesome products are only ten of the many unique purchases available on Quirky that will simplify and improve your day to day life.  Whether you’re searching for the next best kitchen tool, a sleek and smart charging station or organizational solutions, there’s a special treasure for everyone waiting on shop.quirky.com!
