Fun Animal-Shaped Gadgets

animal gadgets_header.jpgAs a lover of animals, I think it is fun when you can incorporate the animal kingdom into your everyday design and tech gadgets. You don’t have to live in a zoo of animal-shaped gadgets, but a couple of items here and there can make the sometimes mundane a little more fun. Like a toucan-shaped bottle opener or mouse with a whale tail, you can add a fun twist to your gadgets.

In my own home, besides the furry, live dog that roams throughout, I have incorporated animal design in pictures, sculptures and even gadgets (I currently own the owl kitchen timer I list below…just too cute). I’ve rounded up some fun animal-shaped gadgets below to inspire a menagerie of your own. Are there any animal gadgets that you love? Share your personal faves in the comments below.
