Plant-Me Pets

If you haven't noticed I have a special place in my heart for whimsy, particularly when it comes to plants. I found these guys today while I was trolling around the web (seriously, can one do anything besides troll when they're on the internet?) and they're soo soo cute. Called Plant-Me Pets, these little guys are made of natural latex rubber and their eyes are made from seeds. They can hang out on your desk and when you get bored. Ploomp! Plant them in the ground by burying them head first (seems a bit wrong doesn't it?). Add some sun, water and voila! The rubber will decompose, the seeds will sprout and you'll have a plant in no time. Available in three varieties (cantaloupe, tomato and pumpkin) for $20 each.

those are cute for decorating, but pointless for planting. i rather pay 5 dollars for seeds that ill plant just as well as a 20 dollar doll thing.

The Uncommon Goods website has some fun plantlings, too. You can choose from an in vitro orchid growing in gel or flowers that grow from eggs. The in vitro orchid is actually more expensive than buying a fully grown, blooming orchid plant, but they grow very slowly so you are investing in mony months of fascination. http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jsp?source=family&itemId=15211 http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jsp?source=family&itemId=15174 You can find egglings at the Curiosity Shoppe, too. They have basil and mint. http://www.curiosityshoppeonline.com/basileggling.html I'm sorry that I can't include an image. The eggling on kitchen windowsill is adorable.
