NEW Captain Jules' Everlasting Steampunk Flask! Home & Living

Add a comment Published in homewares and cosplay on 23 July 2014, 17:12 by Stacey

We LOVE steam punk style. The tiny top hats, the goggles (that do nothing!), the corsets, the leather, the crazy weapons. We love that there's no canon, no official characters to cosplay, so you're free to let your imagination go wild when designing a steampunk outfit.

This amazing new steampunk accessory – Captain Jules' Everlasting Steampunk Flask named after..... well, actually, we just made up Captain Jules ;-) it's up to you, geek friend, to invent who Captain Jules is or was, and why you are currently toting his incredibly handsome Everlasting Steampunk Flask!

Truly invaluable to any traveler, motorist, sportsman or businessman, this unique flask will hold up to 200ml of whichever medicinal tonic tickles your fancy – and looks super stylish while doing so.

The full grain leather holster features a 7 cm long belt loop, and the flask itself is stainless steel with copper cladding. The gauge on the outside is adjustable, so it can read whatever you want!



"Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables" - Giving Produce a Second Chance at Life Food & Drink

Add a comment Published on 23 July 2014, 14:29 by Paul

Like us, you may have come across this video on the internet recently. As lovers of food, we think this clever marketing campaign is a great way of raising awareness about food waste.

Intermarché (French supermarket) launched their “Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables” campaign comprising of a film, print, poster and radio campaign. The campaign celebrates the beauty of the “Grotesque Apple”, the “Ridiculous Potato”, the “Hideous Orange”, the “Failed Lemon”, the “Disfigured Eggplant”, the “Ugly Carrot”, and the “Unfortunate Clementine”. These fruits and vegetables are normally rejected by supermarkets and never make it to the shelf. But really, there's nothing wrong with them – they have the same nutritional value as their better looking counterparts and consumers are willing to pay for them. Intermarché offered their “Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables” for 30% less. That's a big saving on your weekly shop and gives fruits like the “Failed Lemon” a second chance in life.

What do you think about this campaign? Should New Zealand supermarkets jump on the bandwagon? Would you buy inglorious fruits and vegetables for 30% less? Let us know in the comments below!

We love overseas shipments at Mighty Ape. It means we can get products that will be hard to find elsewhere in New Zealand. Today we are excited because we have just received an import shipment of Fisher Price toys.

Fisher-Price is a brand we all know and love. When something is made by Fisher-Price you know it will be a quality baby or pre-school toy.

One of our favourite products from this shipment is the Classic Two Tune TV. Two enduring melodies play while charming pictures scroll across the screen. Just as the original, this Fisher-Price Classic Two Tune TV recreates the sweet allure of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” and “London Bridge Is Falling Down.” Now, how cool is that?
