Need A Hand?

Go 20,000 leagues under the shower with this friendly squid, equipped with nine, adjustable tentacles for gripping your shampoo, soap and washing extras, without disappearing into the bathroom void! Wildly convenient, this functional creature even holds your bottles upside down, so you conquer every last drop. Made in China out of natural latex.

Available in red, black, blue, or lime green; sold separately.

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)
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.

        Great product! Clears up room in the shower. Holds bottles firmly, you can dispense without removing from the squid. Would highly recommend.

          The squid is really cute and holds all my shower necessities firmly and well. It's easy to use and convenient. Best of all, it's something I can quickly grab on my way to the shower in the dorms.

                    We have an older home with a small guest shower stall. Limited space for a shower caddy or shower organizers due to the older design of the shower head and soap holder. This was the perfect fit for our guest bathroom! And our guest love it's functionality, nothing slips out of the "arms".
