  4. life without this pencil sharpener
    (groan. sorry)

  5. Aw-some

  6. I suppose we should be grateful it wasn’t designed the other way around.

  7. Wow–this might even be better than my nose pencil sharpener (you stick the pencil in the nostril).

  8. A dawg with an automatic litter tray. Neat.

  9. Theo – the image you put into my head was oh so very wrong 🙂

  10. luvinmalssomuch says:

    Yeah Theo that would be a real pain in the ars.

  11. Awwwww! Look at the details!

  12. hahahahahahhhhaaahhah…

  13. Maybe if they sell well enough, they’ll make different breeds, too!

  14. I have this pencil sharpener. It’s so cute, the little ears move when you use it.

  15. Omg. Its so cute! I want one.
    Lol. Theo, that image is horribly burned into the back of my eyelids!

  17. Why did you have to post the link to that site???? Now I have an order of overly cute stuff coming in the mail!@!!!

  18. Not cute, just weird…a little disturbing even…

  19. OMG I used to have one of those! Mine was brown and white though. Mine broke, the tail came off but it was fun while it lasted.

  20. Of course it’s sold out, because the first fifty people to visit CO today have already ordered theirs!

  21. omg, do you crank the tailio??? too moishe.

  22. Theo,
    Its not a dog but a cat but they have done the other end and with suitable sound effects

  23. I’m slightly obsessed with pencil sharpeners… hehehe.

  24. My day is ruined! The sharpener is out of stock!!!

    Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle.

  25. You could always pick up Dewi’s version, Sprock.

    There’s nothing cute about poopshavings improperly disposed. Please, folks — be sure to dump your shavings in a sanitary place and don’t just let them run down the gutter.

  27. I have one of those!
    But its in light blue-ish =]

  28. They also make elephant, hippo, and panda pencil sharpeners with a tiny paper shredder, too.


    I have a blue elephant.

  29. i have a pink one and a blue one of these! the gift shop that i work at sells all kinds of cute stuff like this!

  30. I never had a puppy sharpener. I did have a little stove with a chicken inside. (You stuck the pencil in the base of the stove, and sharpening rotated the chicken.) I wonder where I put that thing.

  31. I had to go order one, along with some CAT BUTT magnets for various animal lovers in my life. Will be perfect for holiday gift giving. Because who doesn’t love animal butts at Christmas? 😉

  32. fanTAStic! I saw something like that in Spencer’s a while back, only the shavings came out of the butt.

  33. Julia (the one in BC) says:

    Turns out the sellers (“The Spoon Sisters”) don’t ship outside the United States.

    All I can say is… POOP.

    (And may I add: &*%#$.)


  34. There is a kitty one similar to this butyou stick the pencil up its bum and it meows :> http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/cats-arse-pencil-sharpener/index.html

  35. I wish all my stationery could be as cute as that!
    But No, all you get is stuff related to Barbies (yikes!) around here.

  36. circuscake says:

    poopie doggie! brilliant.

    i really want this but just realized i rarely use pencils. hmmm…

  37. My daughter has a PINK one. Present from grandma….

  38. Ha, My year four teacher had that sharpener.
    I remeber the look she gave me when she caught me laughing to myself whenever I sharpend my pencil.
    Thanks Mr Sharpener.
    You cost me a break time.
    Although it was partly because I didn’t give in my green homework book. Anyways…

  39. we used to sell this at our store!
    now we have the “helpful hippo”
    (cant find a good pic :/)

  40. What?!?! No mention of the suction-cup feeties? Think of the little popping sounds as he walks!

  41. Hey everyone! they sell these at The Container Store in pink and blue. Best part is that theyre only $2! get them while they last bc an employee told me they were flying off the shelves

  42. Props to C.O. for knowing it would have been an Industrial Designer that came up with this. That’s pretty sharp! < -- sorry. It was there, had to say it. What will these crazy, creative people come up with next?

  43. Emmi Torstensson says:

    I have one of those! It moves its ears. But mine is blue.
