How Fresh and Creative Ideas Rules the World

a bird in the hand

This little peeper just wants to please. Turn his head to the right — his eyes change from blue to white and his beak dispenses salt; turn it left — his eyes turn black and of course his beak pours the pepper.

And some very cute things for your home, created by Fred & Friends, watch out with pleasure!

static-cling mirror decals

Who IS that looking back from the mirror? With this giant set of static-cling decals you’re just one moustache or tiara away from a whole new you. Just place our Funhouse decals on a mirror and stand back; it’s best to squint one eye for the full effect.

make cake, not war

Everybody knows if we made more cake and less war the world would be a happier place. But it takes more than cake, so Fred is contributing a portion of the proceeds from this product to organizations dedicated to peaceful resolution of conflict, justice for all, and respect for human rights.

glovin’ for the oven

Do you like to cook? Or maybe you just ACT like you like to cook. Either way, Pot Puppets love to join in on the fun—they can take the heat and still come out ready to amuse.

instructions included

Job Interview? Briss? Court Appearance? Yes, a necktie is definitely called for, and not a clip-on! No problem…relax, take a deep breath, remember your days in the boy scouts, and study the oh-so-easy knot-tying instructions printed right on Fred’s handy How Tie.

party cups with personality

Who knows how to liven up a party? YOU do! Each of these photo-realistic paper cups comes emblazoned with a new nose. When you tip your head to take a drink – voila – you get an instant nose job, and a chuckle from the crowd. Remember, never turn your nose up at a good laugh!

instant anonymity

Black Bars offer no promise of anonymity and may draw unwanted attention. It is possible this product will make you appear ridiculous. Do not operate heavy machinery while wearing Black Bars at night. Pants may be required (check local city ordinances). Keep Black Bars away from Children and humorless adults.

sink one in your drink

Ice ahoy!! You get 4 ocean liners and 4 icebergs — just add gin, Leo DiCaprio, and Kate Winslet for a perfect party. Individual peggable recyclable clear boxes.

wry toast for your table

Bring out the best in your butter by serving it on a tasteful slice of ceramic bread. Even better…you’ll be spreading smiles as you pass it around the breakfast table!

got something to say?

Everybody loves buttons that proclaim your point of view. Somehow these slogans take on added meaning when they’re “pinned” directly to the old epidermis.

the udderly irresistible creamer

Generally speaking cows are more comfy in the barn than at the table, but Calf & Half is a perfect house guest. She’s always in a good mooooooooood, an you will be too when
you pour from this playful little pitcher. A gentle reminder of where our cream really comes from.

the crime scene scarf

Create your own crime scene with this extra-long, extra cozy knit scarf. Fuzz is acrylic wth a touch of spandex for extra oomph; it’s just shy of five feet long; and it’s packed all rolled up in a clear drum for handy display.

take along utensils

The silicone handles of these mid-size utensils lock together securely for easy storage and packing, not to mention endless amusement. Perfect for lunch boxes, picnics, your desk drawer or glove box.

blocks that build character

Twist ’em, spin ’em, smile at ’em – Headgames are the fun way to make faces! These hardwood blocks are screenprinted on all sides so you can make thousands of bizarre and amusing faces. Interactive fun for youngsters and oldsters (like Fred) too.

the voodoo doll toothpick holder

Make your next party painfully amusing by inviting Ouch!, the voodoo-it-yourself toothpick holder. Perfect for finger food, emergency hexes, and jump-starting the good times. Two fashionable colors, elegant clear display-box packaging. With Ouch, olives will never be boring again!

they really make an entrance

A new floor mat that doesn’t necessarily add anything to the accumulated wealth of western culture, but did seem like a good idea at the time. And who doesn’t need a little
reminder that wherever you stand is, in fact, where you are.

bigger, better, louder, cooler

Sometimes bigger IS really better, especially when it comes to sound. That’s why we took a puny pair of earbuds, put them in Fred’s highly technical Way Big machine, and created 500XL – it’s 500 times the size of the original! How great will these look on your desktop alongside your mp3 player or PC? 500XL includes a built-in amp and 3-way power – it runs on batteries; you can connect it to your PC’s USB port with the supplied cord; or plug it into the wall with a generic power supply (not included). The stand-up, peggable clamshell packaging really makes a statement.
