Rather than give your son false hopes of one day being able to drive a luxury sports car or shiny speed demon with a set of Hot Wheels toy cars, give him a harsh dose of the real world with a $50 Urban Collectable instead.

The cars in this series will yank the wool from your child’s eyes faster than the high-speed chase the toys were likely involved in (before they were individually hand burnt and otherwise destroyed, of course). Yes, it’s time to stomp on little Tommy’s foolish dreams of polishing a red Ferrari or weaving through traffic in a Porsche. His chances of becoming a well-adjusted adult and contributing member of society are much greater if he can imagine the events leading up to the creation of the joyridden 2-door hatchback, petrol-bombed jeep, and minivan/insurance scam.

Foodies who need 1 or 2 gigs of data with them at all times are never in short supply of USB drives in the shape of their favorite sweet treats and other baked goods. While I make do with run-of-the-mill rectangles year after year, techies with a passion for food get to feast their eyes on newly fashioned flash drives as quickly as Vavolo can take them out of the oven.

The company’s newest offering in the world of inedible digital delectables is the Fortune Cookie USB Drive. Unaware perhaps that real fortune cookies are usually complimentary and tannish in color, Vavolo’s menu lists green, blue, red, and pink cookies alongside the “yellow” ones shown above for $30 (1GB) and $50 (2GB) apiece.
