You probably heard SkyMall, the ubiquitous magazine that sat in the “seat back pocket in front of you” recently filed for bankruptcy. Known for their random, bizarre, and – let’s be honest – sometimes useless items, the magazine was always good for killing the time between “we’ve closed the cabin door, please turn off all electronic devices” and 10,000 feet. But now we live in a world where SkyMall no longer exists and can only survive with the fond memories of its products.
Some of the best – err, creative – items were geared toward kids and parents. Sure we all need a personal doughnut deep fryer and a toaster that heats up hot dogs but some of the crazy things Skymall offers for kids are too much.
Here are 13 items that you probably won’t miss as SkyMall flies into the sunset.
