1. POOR TOYS 20 € – Poorex

This set of toys made from Beechwood are a retro-throwback to when chores meant actually doing something physical. These days we incinerate, tumble-dry and Swiffer our way through home care, but there was once a time when the sink had to be blocked with a stopper in order to do dishes, clothes had to hung on a line to by dried, and cleaning the floors involved a bucket of water and sturdy brush. It was those experiences that inspired these toys.

2. SPACE FLEET $32 – Papafoxtrot

“You can’t fault the Dragon for being timid; not content with being the first private space vehicle to survive a return from orbit, it is also designed to potentially be the first commercial vehicle to reach Mars. In the meantime, it will have to settle for shuttling up to seven crew and cargo to the ISS in place of the recently retired Space Shuttle. In development by SpaceX since 2005, Dragon should be embarking on its first mission in 2012.” – Papafoxtrot

3. SQUARE WATER BOTTLE $40 – David Mayer

“My goal is really to get people thinking about bottles not as these clunky, utilitarian pieces, but as statements–in the same way women think about handbags and shoes and that we all think about our clothes, watches and sunglasses,” he tells Co.Design. The bottles are finally available for pre-order at Clean Bottle, and will ship in December (hopefully in time for the holidays).
