Bigger is Better

Sometimes, bigger really is better. For example, when you're squinting over some ancient proof sheet of your past, going blind staring at miniscule images. Wow, I thought, a magnifying glass would sure come in handy.

Of course, the only magnifying glass I might have had on hand would've been some flimsy plastic thing from my daughter's bug catching kit. Hardly suitable. So the Toad went on a magnification search. Check these babies out: two magnifiers that mimic placid water droplets. They'd look elegant lying around a coffee table atop an important coffee table book. One could imagine them filling out a spring themed table setting in some creative capacity. They would make a lovely gift for some giftee with a penchant for decorative, yet useful objects. Just don't hand these over as a birthday gift; the implication of failing eyesight with age will not delight.

These magnificent magnifiers are $42 for a set of two. Available at Warning: don't let your kids get a hold on these, or there will be singed bug life all over your driveway (in that case, bigger is deader).
