sailor moon tea 1

Nothing makes teatime feel fancy like an intricately painted tea cup made from china. It hits a magical level when that tea cup is inspired by Sailor Moon. This matching tea cup and saucer set from Premium Bandai and Noritake is made from fine bone china and features a Sailor Scout bow, symbol, and Sailor Moon’s name written in script.

The only uncool thing about this beautiful set that will be out in April is that it’s tricky to order if you live outside of Japan.

Take a closer look at the cup and saucer after the break.

Wacaco-Minipresso-Portable-Espresso-Maker-image-1-750x421-1

You may be familiar with the Handpresso, but it looks like a Hong Kong startup called Wacaco, has developed an even smaller, pocket-sized espresso maker called the Minipresso.

It uses a cylindrical system that features a scoop for measuring and tamping coffee grounds, a tiny serving cup and a small built-in thermos for holding hot water. A small hand pump is used to cycle water through the grounds.

Watch the Minipresso in action after the break…

dolphin oven mitt

I think Pam Poovey would approve of someone turning her dolphin puppet into an insulated Dolphin Oven Mitt. If someone doesn’t buy this and do Pam impressions while cooking dinner, I’m going to be very disappointed.

It’s cold outside and this Sailor Moon flask is perfect for holding a little something to warm you up from the inside. The flask holds 8 ounces of your favorite beverage and is etched stainless steel. It includes a free funnel and the seller will even etch your name on it for no additional charge.

chewie bottle opener 1

Hallmark wants you to use the Force and/or Wookiee strength to open your bottles. They’ve got two new Star Wars-themed bottle openers that feature Chewbacca and Yoda. While I’m not sure about the designs – the mouths are the openers – I do like that they play music when you use them. Both styles broadcast the Star Wars theme song, and Chewbacca also releases one of his trademark growls.

See the Yoda design after the break.

1e13_tardis_tablecloth

If you’re a fan of Doctor Who, then you’ll love this officially licensed TARDIS Tablecloth. Needless to say, if Time Lord technology could make this tablecloth bigger on the inside that would be really something.

It’s made from a blend of 35 percent cotton and 65 percent polyester–sadly, no wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff was utilized in the manufacturing process.

Check out a close-up after the break…

goldfish teabag 1

Until today I’ve only seen tea bags in two shapes: circles and squares. Charm Villa is making the product kitschy with their goldfish-shaped tea bags. The bags go through a 16 step manufacturing process and when they’re dunked in your mug of hot water, they actually look like swimming fish. The tea bags are beautiful and just a tiny bit weird.

Watch the tea bags swim around in a cuppa after the break.

1e30_portal2_companion_cube_apron

If you happen to be a fan of Aperture Science Handheld Portal Devices and cake, then you’ll absolutely love this officially licensed Portal 2 baking apron. It features a cute companion cube on the front, as well as two deep blue and orange pockets. I guess if you put something in one pocket it will pop up in the other.

Oh, and never lie about cake. Never!

If you’re a fan of Cyberdyne’s work–I mean, those Terminators are very good at what they do–then you might want to show off your love for the company’s handiwork by picking up this Cyberdyne mug.

Also, if you want to pretend that you work at other fictional corporations and/or branches of local government (like Detroit’s OCP or the Amity Police Department), then you can pick up some of Last Exit To Nowhere’s other logo mugs. Check them out after the break…
