Dave’s Cool Toy of the Day: Big Head Squirrel Feeder

Big Head Squirrel Feeder.

One word. Awesome.

I love squirrels. They are amazing animals. I love watching them in the yard, defying gravity in the trees, and just being awesome.

What could make watching them even better? The Big Head Squirrel Feeder.

Hang this feeder in front of a window or somewhere you can watch, fill it with things squirrels like to eat, and sit back and watch. Squirrels stick their head up into the feeder to eat and it looks like they have a giant cartoon head. Genius.

Be sure to keep a camera nearby. You’ll want to get pictures of your little squirrel buddies with their big head to post on Facebook.

The vinyl Big Head Squirrel Feeder is 5.5" x 8", has holes in the ears for hanging, and is available at Archie McPhee

Dave’s Cool Toy of the Day: Alien Chest Burster Plush

An Alien to Call Your Own

This awesome plush alien is officially licensed from 20th Century Fox and is an exact scale replica of the original baby xenomorph from Alien, which burst from Kane’s chest.

He’s 48 inches long, made of smooth velour and matches the color of the film alien. But best of all, a wire runs from the head to the tail, allowing you to pose your little alien any way you want.

This Alien Chest-burster Plush
is just what you need to cuddle with you on a cold night.

The Cool Talking Comic Book Cover

Check out this clever talking comic book cover for X-O Manowar.

They way it works is you use your smartphone to scan the QR Code, then place your phone on the dotted line and an animation begins that causes the illusion of the character speaking. Very clever and possibly one of the best uses I’ve seen for QR Codes.
