Ok, I'll admit it up front, this post is NOT going to be about Savvy Shopping. But in previewing a lot of various things around the web in preparation for some upcoming shopping posts, a few things really jumped out as being REALLY unique, and I thought it would be fun to show them. So this is going to be a totally fun post ... maybe I'll subtitle it "Gifts for the person who REALLY has everything!"
Let's start with a giant inflatable climbing iceberg ... for the person who has everything, why not set them up their own amusement park? A 14' tall 3-sided floating toy reminiscent of rock-climbing, and the 4th side is a waterslide. Only $6,000.
Now, let's say you want to go water-skiing, but you don't have anyone to drive the boat? No problem. just pull out your trusty Skier-Controlled Tow Boat and drive yourself anywhere you want to go. Actually, this is pretty cool too, since you can create wakes and control every aspect of the boat for a skiier's dream ride. Oh, and this one will set you back $17,000.
Would you believe a hovercraft? And it goes 60mph. You and a friend can cruise the waterways of the world in style, winding into places that can't be reached by other watercraft. This one runs $17,000. Now, if they could only invent one that would run on the road, ala Star Wars ...
How about a motorized monocycle? I've seen these on TV, but what a thrill it would be to ride one! The cycle is motor propelled and steered by leaning to one side or the other. As much as I enjoyed steering water ride-ons with balance, I'd be willing to bet this would be a lot of fun. Price on this one is $13,000.
And the absolute Pièce de résistance? How about a 20 foot animatronic Triceratops? It moves its head, stomps its feet, rumbles and roars. Everyone needs one of these by their pool ... check out the video. This one is $350,000. Just a wee bit out of my price range.
