Can You Dig It?

Bulldoze through tasks with this chrome-plated work machine, designed to help you move tough assignments right off your desk. German designer Hervé Houplain's executive Desktop Digger gets to the bottom of paper piles with a magnetic shovel for stowing paperclips (so you don't have to dig for them), a pencil holder, sharpener, and sticky note dispenser. Plus, when you drag and release their friction motors you activate their mechanical charm and rev up your workday. It's the ultimate desktop accessory for a constructive day at the office!
Includes one pencil, five paperclips, pad of 80 yellow sticky notes, adjustable shovel. Made in China.

      My best friend is an engineer who runs a big department that utilizes heavy equipment. She loves gadgets, and loves to laugh. Her birthday is next month, and I can't wait for her to see this! It looks exactly in real life as it does in the picture, and feels sturdy. It's the perfect, unique gift for someone who enjoys fun with their morning coffee.

          I think this is great! I would buy for a friend, although, look more for a $25-$30 price tag if possible...just food for thought. But reach for the stars!

          cute, but too expensive for something that's just going to sit on your desk.

          MADE IN CHINA! :(

          Whimsical! I like the idea, but make it here in the USA.
