Decipher for yourself the useful, and the plain bizarre.

Similar to a child’s clip-on high chair (the type you attach to the table), this chair is easily assembled and can hold pets that weight up to 4.5kg. It seems this product is no longer available but surely deserved a mention in our top 10!
2) Heated Bowls

Very clever, but some of you may just want to wait until the weather passes before venturing out.
