Despite his extracurriculars, multi-talented maker Jens Widerberg keeps it simple when it comes to design, drawing heavily from classic Scandinavian minimalism. The Swedish-born designer has a long and ecclectic resume: ranked as Sweden's number two slalom champion in his youth, he later moved south to become a windsurfer. He became Sweden's fastest kite surfer and the tenth fastest worldwide. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jens also funnels his energy (or whatever's left of it) into creating functional items for the home.

Exclusive
Made from
latex rubber
Measurements
Approx. 13" H (adjustable)
Care
Wipe down gently with soap and water to clean.
Notes
Designed to hold a soap case with the bar soap inside, not the soap alone.

Reason for 9 arms (rather than 8):
Each arm is actually the half of one long tube that has a loop in the end. The 9th arm is the other half of the arm that goes up through the head and becomes the attachment loop (for easy hanging). Recommended for indoor use only.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Shower Squids:

    Bought one of these four years ago and love that I can keep all my many shampoos, conditioners, shaving gels, etc. off the edge of the tub. Recently I noticed that it had developed dry rot, much to my dismay. But Uncommon Goods really stepped up by offering to replace it, even after all that time. What great customer service!

          Bought this for my sister and she loved it! Said it was super cute and her two toddlers thought it was so great, she'll use it to keep them close at hand. They love "holding hands" with the octopus.

              We just bought a condo with a stand up shower and didn't like those cheap looking, over-the-shower-head caddies. I remembered seeing this online somewhere and when I showed it to my husband, this seemed like something that might work for us. I like that black was available, as we're not people that like really bright bright colors (except in our kid's room). This one does everything we needed but should mention that it doesn't fit all bottles. I uses shampoo/ conditioner with a short, fat bottle and had to buy something different that would fit in the "arm", hence the 4 stars. But all in all we're happy with the purchase.

              Great addition to the shower. Straps are a little hard to tighten though.

              My Squid Bit The Dust

              By 

              from Washington, DC

              Comments about UncommonGoods Shower Squids:

              After three years, my squid broke. I don't blame it. I have laden it to max capacity with heavy shampoo bottles for years. But I am back for another, because it's such a great idea for people like me who like to keep way too many shampoos, scrubs, cleansers, etc. in the shower to suit my lathery whims. So the squid isn't permanent. Maybe it should have lasted longer than three years. I'm not a student of shower squids, so I don't know. But I do know that, for me, it's a product I rave about whenever I get a chance because it's just such a good problem solver and convenience for me.

              We had been looking for a long time for something that might work in our 150 yrs. old house and came across this. Looks like a kid's toy but function extremely well. It does stretch down as it get loaded with bottles, but so far, no problem yet. Really do love this octopus! Now all my bottles for a family of 6 stays in place and is still usuable without that metal look.
