Fridgeezoo Refrigerator Pets: Kid-Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Will a cute lil robot critter living in the fridge encourage families to be a little more energy efficient? That's the theory behind Fridgeezoo Refrigerator Pets ($16), which give indecisive refrigerator lingerers gentle reminders to shut the door. Created in Japan, the cute milk carton-shaped gadget greets you warmly when the refrigerator door is first opened, but turns from friend to foe quickly — complaining if the door is left open for too long.

It makes good sense not to stand gazing into the icy cold abyss — refrigerators are markedly less efficient at keeping food cold with warm air rushing in — but isn't nagging the family to make a choice and close the fridge mom's job?

I think it's pretty cute. Especially because freezers and refrigerators run better when they are fuller, these especially would help during the part of the week where there's less food in there.
