New Product Tuesday with Fab-Tastik

Fab-Tastik Fabric MenderYay, As Seen on TV marketers! Once again, you’ve managed to invent an indispensable product we didn’t know we needed. Fab-Tastik is a double-sided adhesive that bonds fabric together instantly. While the bond won’t survive the wash cycle, it will provide a strong and temporary mend for fashion emergencies without resorting to the old-fashioned safety pin we’ve been using since the 14th century BC.

New Product Tuesday with (I think I need a) Hug Light

Hug LightYour Savvy Shopper is going to be honest with you. I’ve reviewed hundreds of As Seen on TV products over the past few years. Many are useful and cool, but few get me all tingly in anticipation of how they could enhance my daily life. The new Hug Light is one that definitely makes the cut. It’s two LED lights (one focused and one wide beam) on either end of a foam-covered bendable steel alloy arm. You can coil the Hug Light into a stand-up lamp, wear it around your neck, or bend it around your wrist to put portable task lighting right where you need it. Here are the uses shown in the infomercial, and I’m sure you can think of many others:

  1. Working under the hood of your car.
  2. Early morning jogging or dog walking.
  3. Plumbing work in the basement or under the sink.
  4. Reading.
  5. Grilling at night.
  6. Studying maps or playing games in the car without distracting the driver.
  7. Roadside emergencies.
  8. Camping.

Oh, bendable, wearable source of light, what can’t you illuminate? I give Hug Light two thumbs up, because I can use it with both hands free!

New Product Tuesday with Mini Sew-Wonder

The Mini Sew-Wonder is a cordless handheld sewing machine. Now you can repair and alter your clothes while you’re wearing them. My favorite trick is to sew together my friends’ pants legs after they’ve passed out. Don’t forget to set up the video camera with a motion detector after you do this. It’s sure to be a hit on Tosh.0 and AOTS.
