Everyone knows you can get practically anything you’re looking for on Amazon. But you can also get some of the most random things that you most certainly were not looking for — but now that you’ve found them, you need them! Such is the case with these 20 weird items we found on Amazon, some of which are even on sale.
When we say weird, we mean cute, clever, fun, out there, useful in the most obscure ways. Sometimes they are just downright hilarious. Even the craziest-looking items among them — including pug eyes, unicorn heads and even a sparkly pillow with Nicolas Cage’s face — have a purpose other than being weird. They provide clever life hacks, make things more comfortable or just provide entertainment. And they start at just $6.
And these 20 are just the tip of the iceberg. The depths of Amazon is truly endless.
“I got this Airpod holder for my wife for Christmas, and it’s been a hit! She always leaves her AirPods lying around the house, so now whenever we see them, we let the cat hold them. We get a nice chuckle out of it,” joked a fan.
“Awesome! Love it! Now I am a pug every night!! Lol” wrote one good-natured shopper.
“It’s novel, silly, funny.. but when she wants nuggies while driving, it’s awesome,” wrote one of more than 16,000 five-star reviewers.
“The crab sits, the crab protects, the crab holds, and the crab forgets it’s a crab sometimes. Often grabs knives and threatens dinner guests. Other than that it’s perfect!” joked a fan.
One fan wrote, “They totally exceeded my expectations and are just perfect for what I needed! I wasn’t sure how much I’d be able to fit in there and not have it look obviously odd, but I’m shocked at how much one of these will hold without being noticeable whatsoever!”
“This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen,” wrote one of more than 36,000 five-star reviewers. “Once you pick it up it’s hard to put down.”
“Had no idea this purse was a working phone handset. The sound is good through the handset. The purse is really cute. Fun buy!” wrote a happy shopper.
“I bought this as a Christmas White Elephant gift and loved it so much I ended up buying another for myself. It smells amazing! I liked that all the pieces came packaged separately so they could be placed how I wanted. It’s not something I intend to burn but rather use as a fun décor piece in the kitchen,” wrote a five-star reviewer.
“I was browsing through Amazon and saw these and immediately put these in my cart for my sister. This sums up our relationship perfectly. If you look at these and a specific person comes to your mind, buy it and give it to them even if there’s no holiday or birthday. Seriously! Cannot recommend enough!!! Also, as a bonus, my sister said that the quality of the actual bandaid is really good,” wrote a discerning shopper.
Behold this gem of a review: “This pillowcase is a ‘national treasure.’ If you have this beauty in your ‘arsenal’ you will be the envy of all your friends, but don’t let this get ‘stolen’ or you will feel ‘left behind’ ‘knowing’ you have ‘a score to settle’ and a drive to ‘kick ass.’ ‘It could happen to you.’ Try to fight the ‘primal’ urge to make love to this pillowcase with a ‘vengeance’ but I can promise that doing so will take ‘unbearable weight of massive talent.’
One shocked shopper wrote, “I bought these as a joke for my husband, never thinking they would really work. He always complains of having to put a pillow under his head to watch tv when laying back in the recliner. Imagine our surprise when he put them on and could watch TV perfectly!”
“I was looking for coasters that could double as decor for my new office. These are perfect! I like that they are slightly different sizes too, so I can adjust depending on what kind of bottle/mug I’m using,” one customer wrote.
One customer had another brilliant use for these finger guards: “I am clumsy with a curling iron and these finger guards help me to minimize the burns on my fingers.”
Be careful what you wish for, though, notes one good-natured reviewer: “I purchased this for Father’s Day and my dad just can’t get enough. He has sent me a joke every day since.”
One fan wrote, “I love my boyfriend pillow! It’s like having your real boyfriend in bed with you minus the annoying snoring and constant farts. I feel protected when I put the arm around me. It’s a comforting feeling. I sleep better knowing I am loved.”
“Quite handy (pun intended!!!). The handiest invention, and keeps you or others (kids) from tipping it over,” wrote a funny fan.
One happy shopper wrote, “I wasn’t expecting such a nice plush blanket, but when she opened it up it had to be the softest blanket every, even came with a tote bag.”
“This is worth it’s weight in gold!! Hours of fun watching our little squirrels having fun eating their treats!! I’m going to get at least five more. Buy this now!” wrote an amused shopper.
One five-star reviewer wrote, “This really works. I can now lift the mattress enough to get the fitted corners on the mattress and can even tuck all the sides under the mattress. I liked it enough that I ordered two more and gave them to my sisters.”
