Hello Kitty 2 Slice Toaster ($28)
Upsides: makes delicious toast, imprints widely-worshipped HK icon directly onto toast in manner of Virgin Mary (less miraculous but still impressive), injects whimsy into horrifying dark hours of the early morning (i.e., breakfast-time). Downside: no "goodbye" setting—kitty set permanently to "hello" mode. From Cookware Essentials.
