SkyMall’s Most Bizarre Products – Part 1
By Gabriel Torres on June 4, 2010 - 1:22 PM


If you travel by plane you know it. If you don’t, you don’t know what you are losing. It you make you laugh or your money back guaranteed. I am not talking about any theme park. I am talking about SkyMall, the magazine available inside airplanes that sells the most bizarre junk ever invented. For the past few years I’ve been collecting the most unbelievable products sold by this magazine, and I finally decided to post my collection of “The best of SkyMall” (or it would be “The worst of SkyMall?” – you decide!). Since by now I have a huge collection, I decided to break it down in several posts. Enjoy!

Some products are “normal”, only falling on the “questionable taste” category – for example, pink flamingos for you to put in your front yard or fake palm trees wrapped in Christmas lights. I wouldn’t buy these products, but I knew that this kind of junk existed.

But the hot stuff on SkyMall are the inventions that I never thought that could ever exist, like the fantastic vacuum cleaner to suck mosquitoes. In my opinion the most fantastic SkyMall product is a real-sized Yeti (a.k.a. Abominable Snowman) statue for you to put in your yard. Holly cow, how could I live to this day without this statue at my house? The guy that invented it is a genius!

Enough for introductions, let’s get it started!
