We love Urban Outfitters—it’s a great destination for everything from vintage rugs to fruity shower curtains, and has all the affordable boho furniture you could wish for. And yet, we can’t deny that some of their products are just plain weird—in a good way, of course. (Hello, life-sized French fry plushie!) In case you need a pick-me-up, we’re sharing some of the best UO products that have made us actually LOL lately. If you want to see more, we recommend checking out their Fun + Games section, where most of these products live.

Bring the car dealership vibe home with this little guy who will make a bold statement on your desk or coffee table. Before you laugh, note that he’s actually quite a popular buy with over 26 reviews. “I love him, he’s my new son,” one customer wrote. If the small version isn’t cutting it, fear not—you can also purchase a six-foot tube guy for $159.

Urban has a solution for getting that one friend who texts way too much during dinner to take her hands off her iPhone once and for all. Enter the cell phone jail, which is bound to aggravate your social media obsessed besties to no end. But honestly, is there really any other way to keep distractions at bay once and for all?

Take your stress out on…fruit? This set of three squishy fruits includes a banana, strawberry, and orange for all your stress needs. In fact, Nicole, our Assistant Commerce Editor, received this set as a gift and shared with two other editors—all three are now kind of obsessed.

Why send an apology text when you can send an apology balloon? This 10-pack has an abundance of appropriate uses: You can send one to the guy you accidentally ghosted last month, another to the sibling whose birthday you totally forgot, and still keep a few extras on hand for future mishaps. Regardless of how it goes over, at least your apology will be memorable.

You’ve just received an Urban Outfitters gift certificate for $500. What do you do? Snag this plushie, obviously. It’s large enough for an adult human to fit inside (at least, according to the picture), and the fries are removable, so you can take them out “when you want to snug,” as noted in the description. (And TBH, who doesn’t?)

We didn’t know ’til now that Urban sells food, but this freeze-dried ice cream sandwich will make it to you without melting—and actually, it’ll keep for years, in all temperatures. We’ll admit it does look pretty good, and actually might be useful on camping trips.

If you’re a “Star Wars” mega fan, you might need this light clapper—or maybe not. Clap on and Darth Vader says “The Force is strong with this one.” Clap off and he says “You underestimate the power of the Dark Side.” Why not?

Look, we won’t judge. Sometimes it’s been a long day, and all you want to do is take a long shower and drink a glass of wine. Why not combine the two? This wine glass holder is actually highly reviewed—and if you’re more of a beer person, there’s a beer can holder as well.

Who needs a good speaker system when you have a mini piano? This one is bright red and is sure to stand out at your next shindig. Give it a whirl and let our your inner Beethoven mid-party—your friends will definitely thank you.

This Salvador Dali-inspired melting clock is one way of looking at the phrase “life imitates art.” It functions like any other clock, just with a surrealist touch. Place it on a shelf and we guarantee all of your guests will have something to say when they see it.

Laugh all you want, but we can definitely think of more than a few people who could benefit from this toilet target light. It mounts to the toilet seat and flashes an LED light right into the center of the bowl—although we can’t help but think that the light itself will get a little, er, gross after awhile.

Why in the world would one ever need a yodeling pickle? It beats us, but we’re amused nonetheless. This little device has a button that “prompts yodeling like you’d hear wandering the hills of the Alps,” because, really, we all could use a bit of that in our lives.
