Wildly convenient, this functional creature even holds your bottles upside down, so you conquer every last drop. Made in China out of natural latex.

Sweden

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.

Made from
latex rubber
Measurements
Approx. 13" H (adjustable)
Ingredients
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.

We were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the two newest members of our family, the red and the black shower octopi. What would we name our adorable eight-legged, whimsical and useful new friends? Family meetings ensued, with suggestions such as "Octo-cutie," "Eight-boy," and "Mr. Octopus Holder Guy," (don't judge, not everyone is creative with names - just ask my kids Ay, Bee, and Cee).

Imagine our complete SHOCK when, after eagerly tearing open the Uncommongoods box, to discover that our new buddies were not octopi after all, but Nona-pi! Nine legs!!! !!! !!! We are not biased against any thing, no matter how many legs it has (except snakes, which of course have none and that's just gross), but those first few moments were a bit awkward.

Our story has a happy ending. Names were adjusted to take the extra limb into account, the nonapi were installed in their new homes, and we quickly discovered that nine legs hold more than eight. We couldn't be happier with our adorable new storage friends, and their unusual anatomy has become rather a conversation starter.

Thank you Uncommongoods, for another delightful, whimsical product that makes our home more organized and fun.

I like how this product works. However, after a while it became discoloured. I bought the blue one and now some parts of it look white-ish, like soap scum (but it's not soap scum). I don't know if it's a problem with mine only. I just wished that for that price it would be of a better quality.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Shower Squids:

        I cannot rave enough about the shower squid. One of the most inventive, fun, and useful things that I've owned. I would suggest everyone own AT LEAST one. It keeps my shower so much cleaner because everything is hanging up, I don't ever have to worry about bottles falling over, and you never have to shake a shampoo bottle when it's running low because gravity is already working in your favor!

        My sisters and I all have one, and mine has faded a little in the 4+ years that I've had it, but other than it being a slightly duller green, it's held up so well. Absolutely. Amazing. Product.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Shower Squids:

          I have owned mine for over 18 months now and I still absolutely love it. We've moved twice since I bought it and both places didn't have anywhere to store shampoo etc in the shower so it has been a life saver. I was a little iffy with the price as I thought it's a little expensive for what is is, however the usefulness of the product is well worth the money. I bought the blue one and it hasn't faded at all. It hardly needs cleaning because the shower takes care of most of it, however if you get a bit of build up I find that letting it soak, or rinsing in hot water is the best. I've only done this twice though since I've had it. I love how easy it is to transport as well. I just pack it up in a plastic sealable bag and off we go.
