New York apartments are notoriously small, so finding home goods that do double duty is a necessity. At this shop (whose impossible-to-pronounce name refers to an old Superman comic-book character), almost every practical item also functions just as well decoratively. Every inch of this 1,500-square-foot shop is lined with giftable utilitarian items packaged in hyperstylish exteriors. Come here for quirky housewares like a porcelain molar-shaped toothbrush holder ($22), a dish scrubber that looks like a porcupine ($13) and a mug set that stacks up to resemble a totem pole ($65). Though playfulness is certainly a theme, there are also organically influenced pieces, including reclaimed-wood nesting tables (three for $315) and grasscloth-covered lamps ($65). Stumped on what to get that person who has everything? We’re pretty sure he doesn’t already own a neon birdhouse, wiener-dog-print pajamas or a cat-shaped flashlight. Random and zany, the fun toys and gadgets here are sure to bring out your inner kid.
