How can watching dominoes fall be more delightful? How about if it's filmed in 360 degrees? This ingenious circular tower by FlippyCat makes great use of the fancy camera.
HAPPY MUTANTS DAY OF ICE CREAM
BY THE PUBLISHER OF BOING BOING, A DIRECTORY OF WONDERFUL THINGS
A notional pride spins the Happy Mutant soul and congests the Happy Mutant heart. We are people, united by a common path of evolution. Beyond that, we have art. Some, maybe not even that.
Ice cream is a treat for many Happy Mutants, and to serve that ice cream we must have a scoop, or a large yet very strong spoon. Bowls would also help, cones optional.

Candylabs is a Montreal shop that makes amazing handmade candies. They share their secrets to making adorable cylindrical cherry candies with a pig design. The process might keep you guessing until the end as to how they end up with such intricate designs on such tiny candies. Watch and learn!
Their charming origin story from their site:
CandyLabs is a brand new handcrafted candy shop in Montreal that emerged in 2014. A young couple, obsessed with the creation of flavorful candies, makes all of their unique and quality sweets in store. The concept was born in England. There, generations of candy makers prepared caramels and other hard candy in front of a delighted audience. It was in Australia that the young people learned the traditional techniques of candy making under the supervision of a confectioner. It is finally in Montreal, Canada where the couple realized their fantastic childhood dream by opening a candy shop of their own.
Bonus: same thing but with pandas inside a bamboo design:
Want to label things like Mom and Dad did?
I needed a label gun, but I hate the printer-in-your-hands models. What I needed was an old-style click-wheel embossing label maker!
I remember spending hours as kid making labels with my dad's click wheel embosser! A hard plastic tape runs through a mini-printing press, and you simply squeeze to emboss letters on to it. This click wheel is simple to mash, I remember my parents one as taking Herculean effort.
The tape comes in all sorts of great colors too!
