A new funny babygift. Japanese Yosimiya is selling bags of rice printed with a newborn’s photo, name and date of birth. The bags are shaped to resemble a swaddled baby. But the key feature is that the bags contain the baby’s exact weight in rice. Holding the bag will therefore feel like holding the baby. The personalized, made-to-order ‘dakigokochi’ are priced from JPY 3500 (USD 32 / EUR 22) and available in a wide range of colours and designs (source: springwise).

It is a shame the site is only in Japanese, but for the daredevils out there, it might be worth a try for an original present. Good luck.


Hand made stuff

Etsy is a online trading place where you can buy and sell all kinds of things handmade. From bags, clothing to vintage things. Have a look for authentic items.

I joined a new car community site in the Netherlands called CarRelation. The fun thing is that all the owners of a certain oldtimer car, cool car or classic car can link to each other and tell and exchange great stories about ‘their’ car and its history. It is just launched. You can already see oldtimers like Volvo Amazon, VW Beetle (Kever), Citroën DS/ID, Jaguar E-Type, Porsche 912, VW T1 Samba, Citroën 2CV, Fiat 500, Ford Mustang. I think it is a nice site to check out, especially for Dutch owners of cool and classic cars.

Visual shopping

Browse is a really nice site where you can do your shopping online in a very cool visual way. There are several categories such as shoes, watches, toys or cookware. Zoom in and out to have a closer look at the thousands of products which are available in a certain category. A great way of shopping online and to gain some new insights in what you really are looking for with all those examples laid out for you.

Criminal profiling

Interested in criminal profiling? These 3 websites give you more information on forensic psychology:
Basic information on forensic psychologie
This American site shows all sorts of notorious cases. The background of the perpetrators and victoms to information about the lawsuit. For instance, the cases of the Zodiac Killer and Ted Bundy are mentioned here.
This is the site of Reid Meloy, one of the toppers in forensic psychology in the U.S. He has a lot of offenders in high profile cases examined psychologically. For example Timothy Mcveigh – from the bombing in Oklahoma city – and Ted Kaczynski, “the Una-bomber”.

Monsters and Robots

Mixed Sparks

I happened to be in London, and saw at several shops great toys and fluffy animals in the shape of monsters and robots. Might be the newest trend? The fashion monsters you see underneath are made by Christian Lacroix, on sale for instance by Habitat.
