As our final contribution on this Earth Day, we found this almost eerie set of Bird Shakers. No batteries or electronics are involved, you simply wind them up and send them across the table while conserving your own personal energy. The Round Salt and Pointed Pepper shakers are hand-crafted of metal and PVC and are each 3.5 x 2.75-inches. Pre-order one for $18.00 or $36.00 for the pair for a mid-May delivery date. Okay, now that you have finished reading this, go out and plant a tree!

If you like your USB toys a bit less animated than the Tengu, you might consider the peacefulness of this little USB Owl. With a mini-weight of only 3.40kg, he blinks and rolls his eyes and rotates his head just like a real one, well almost. In case he doesn’t like just sitting on your tower or speaker, a tree-stump is provided. Pre-order this bit of wisdom for your cutesy USB creatures collection from Thumbs Up for £12.99 (~$26.00.)

Can’t teach your new bird to talk? Let the Talk ’N Play do the work for you. It will teach basic phrases such as “Calling all birds” when your avian friend triggers the lights.
